In preparation of the upcoming Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls, I’ve undertaken the daunting task of watching the entire series from beginning to end. Unlike so many of my friends who watched the show when it first aired back in the early 2000’s, I stayed away from it. It wasn’t necessarily that I didn’t enjoy the immensely talented Lauren Graham or doe-eyed Alexis Bledel, it was just more of a “didn’t have the time to see it” type deal. So when I heard of the stand-alone 4-episode revival last year, I thought now was the perfect time to see for myself what all the buzz was about.
Now I haven’t seen the entire series yet, in fact, I’m just finishing up Season 2. There are 153 episodes, so with the right scheduling and strategic decline of certain social engagement, I just might be all caught up when the redux premieres this fall. Here’s hoping.

It’s the perfect story of girl likes boy, girl finds out she’s a witch and puts a spell to make boy like her, and girl finds out true love is better than what magic can cast. No – It’s not a spoiler. It’s a fantastic film with annoying little brothers, nerdy best friends, very blonde popular girls, and the amazing Zelda Rubenstein as a psychic.
And meet the newest phrase that will be introduced to your vocabulary starting right now – Top That!
But the best part? The soundtrack. I guarantee you that you will have “Never Gonna Be The Same Again” in your head for months. It’s the movie that keeps on giving…
This song has been on repeat in the constant internal monologue of my mind for days. Perfect blend of nostalgia and the futility of a post-education induced sense of complacency.
Brothers, sisters, can’t you see? The future’s owned by you and me. Amen, Jarvis.
Since I have a sore throat this morning and am wincing at the swallowing gravel-like pain, I am listening to this on repeat. It makes me feel better.
