Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life

gilmore-girls Gilmore Girls was always a wonderful show filled with gags about current events, heart felt moments between lovers, and a cast of oddball characters worthy of a great Britcom. Everyone still alive seems to have come back to revive their roles for A Year In The Life. It’s been ten years since the show went off the air and everyone looks pretty amazing. Of course, I have seen the bulk of the cast in other roles over those ten years.

I loved seeing them all again. I loved all the gags. The reference to Inside Llewyn Davis was a hoot. In short, I loved all the bits where they were acting exactly like I remember them acting. I kind of hated a few bits where they didn’t act the way they should have.

For example. Rory is a failure. What universe is this set in? Then she has a one night stand with a guy in a Wookie costume. On top of that, Lorelai-her mother, does nothing but make jokes about it. Ok, I know our heroes are supposed to be more friends than parent and child, but come on. Give me a break. Not even a stern look or a ‘I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed’?

Then there is the whole Rory is a misteress/piece of ass on the side to Logan. This while she has a steady boyfriend who everyone forgets as soon as they met him. Cute gag the first ime round, pretty cruel and heartless after that. She’s a failure, but she can still fly and back forth-well, pretty much anywhere she wants to go.

On the plus side, I loved the bits with Danny Strong the screenwriter talking about Doyle selling out by becoming a screenwriter. I also liked the dig at all the 3o-somethings who couldn’t cope with the real world and moved back home. I liked Kirk and his pig. I loved Kirk’s movie and hated the Musical. I laughed out loud when I first was Daddy Gilmore’s portrait.

All in all, Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life wasn’t perfect. But it was so much better than no Gilmore Girls at all.
