It’s confession time: I’ve never seen Gilmore Girls. I know, I know. As a girl that loves romantic comedies, the mother/daughter dynamic, and all things girls and awesome, I should be familiar with the show. Well, I’m not.
According to Facebook, all of my friends are up in arms about the return of the beloved series and that it will be shown on Netflix. I’m excited for the return of a show that my friends seemed to enjoy so much, but I still don’t get it. I should know about Lorelei and Rory, their love lives, the ups and downs of their relationship, and that Dean needs to return to the show as well (thanks for that, Bustle). I’m going to fix that. I’m rectifying the Gilmore Girls situation, thanks to Netflix.
This mama is starting an adventure. I will be partaking in a Gilmore Girls binge-watching extravaganza throughout November. I’ve even scheduled the times during the week when I’ll watch. I’m nervous. Excited. Eager to start. Will I fall in love with Luke first, or Dean? As a mom, will I connect with Lorelei? Or because I’m a daughter, will Rory be my girl? It’s like a first date, but better, because I’ll be in yoga pants eating popcorn.
I’m ready for the Gilmore Girls situation, and I’m sure I’m going to have an awesome time watching. I think. I hope.
Did you watch Gilmore Girls when it was on network television, or did you bing-watch it on Netflix?
