Review: Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life – “Fall”

It’s Christmas Eve as I write this. As required by U.S. Law, I must acknowledge this celebration by honoring my long-held, sacred traditions. My one tradition is posting the video of Patton Oswalt’s “Christmas Shoes” routine:

How is everyone doing today? Have we all recovered from the post-revival glut of opinion pieces about reviews of opinion pieces of the show?

Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life – Pre-Revival Thoughts

It’s November 23 of what is quite possibly the worst year of the last 4 decades. (Fuck yourself, 2016.) We’re living in a nightmare/Black Mirror episode/the Upside Down.

Review: Gilmore Girls – Season 3, Episode 18 “Happy Birthday, Baby”

The episode opens with Spacey Grandpa serving everyone a big giant helping of “Johnny Machete.” It’s a bunch of crap in a bowl, like gruel or one of those horrible “dump dinner” things.

Review: Gilmore Girls – Season 3, Episode 2 “Haunted Leg”

We begin this episode with Judgy WASP Mom and Lorelai giving each other the silent treatment. The cold shoulder. The freeze out. Rory struggles valiantly to make conversation, but she should stop trying. Her mother is right. Her parents reaction to the news that C-Money is having a baby with another woman was completely out of line. She was already hurting from C-Money’s bullshit, and then her own parents have to make it worse?

When they finally do start talking about the girl Lorelai went to high school with who shot her husband, Judgy WASP Mom says, “At least she had a husband to kill.”

Review: Gilmore Girls – Season 1, Episode 20 “P.S. I Lo…”

EPISODE 20!!! Oh shit, I am SO CLOSE to the end of the first season. I hope this episode has more exciting plot points than last episode – the only noteworthy thing from that one was “Judgy WASP Mom wears ugly shoes.”

During the cold open, Lorelai and Rory play “One Two Three He’s Yours” which is a game where they get three chances to “find” a husband based on the random men that walk by. Lorelai gets stuck with Kirk from the supermarket and is sad. Rory gets an eyeful of Floppy and is sad.

I’ve always found the best way to start any story is from a place where everyone is sad and would like to die. It makes the audience feel good.
