:coffee: It’s that time of year again when I start my yearly re-watch of Gilmore Girls. :coffee:

This is one of the TV shows I could watch time and time again and never get bored of. I love the characters and story-lines, and I’m pretty much still wishing I lived in Stars Hollow.

To answer the questions in the OP:

1) Favourite Gilmore Girls character?

Lane Kim! She embodies so much of what makes Gilmore Girls great. She's loyal and a great friend. She cares deeply for her family but makes her own path in life. She loves music and is also a badass drummer - as a drummer myself I loved her portrayal in the series.

Although, I wish they'd given her more of a storyline in A Year in the Life. I also love Lorelai too, ofc. :heart:

2) Which character do you identify the most with

Season 1-2 Rory Gilmore! I found as the series went on she became more and more problematic but, early seasons book loving Rory was pretty much me at 16.

3) Favourite Gilmore Girls episode

This is a really difficult one for me to answer! I much prefer the earlier seasons, but my favourite episode overall is probably Bon Voyage from Season 7. It shows the amazing community that has built up around Lorelai and Rory in Stars Hollow and since all of the best characters are there I'd have to choose this one. It also makes me cry everytime.

4) Favourite Gilmore Girls scene?

Hands down has to be the Luke and Lorelai proposal scene in Season 5, Episode 22: "A House is Not A Home. It's so typical of both of their characters and I love the moment of realisation that Lorelai has when she realises that Luke is the perfect father figure for Rory and no one will love her more.

5) Have you seen “A Year in the Life?” If so, what did you think?

I have. I... enjoyed it. It seemed to be lacking some of the charm of the original series and I'm still a bit mad about how Rory's character turned out. But, it definitely had some great moments, most notably how Emily Gilmore grew as a character following Richard's death.

I was also really disappointed with Lane's storyline and hoped we'd see Hep Alien be more successful.

6) Favourite Gilmore Girls coupling, whether romantic or platonic?

It has to be Luke and Lorelai. "You built me a huppah?" Just the best. I also love Sookie and Lorelai, Rory and Lane and Jess and Rory too.

7) What’s the best ‘running joke’ in the series?

"I got hit by a deer!"

8) How many times have you watched the series?

Honestly, at this point I couldn't even count. I've watched A Year in the Life twice, but original series likely 12+ times.

9) What questions do you still want answered?


How did Kirk manage to work so many jobs in Stars Hollow? There's not even enough time in the day :lol:

Yussss I'm also rewatching! Decided to start with series one this week - I generally skip to when she's at uni.

I haaaaaaate the Dean relationship. Gross.

Omg I saw the first episode Luke appeared in the other day. So hilarious. He's not even called Kirk at that point. :rofl:

I love the first episode with the Life and Death Brigade.

I didn't hate the A year in the Life episodes, but agree with you about Lane and Emily's storylines.

Awesome! Yeah, I actually prefer the earlier series but the Life and Death Brigade episodes are also some of my favourites

Yeah, the Dean relationship is okay at first but gets pretty old and problematic quite quickly. He seems super controlling.

I identify with season 1-2 Rory. After breaking up with Dean I grew to dislike her. Not sure why. I think being quite privileged changed her.

Awesome, love those answers. Someone else who loves Lane as much as I do? She's the best, isn't she?

I've always wondered what happened to Madison and Louise too. They were pretty big characters for parts of the show and I'd like to have heard them mentioned a bit more.

Rory's Chilton graduation is a great choice. Her speech is so emotional!

Nice! I love House MD too - you have good taste my friend

I love the earlier episodes of Gilmore Girls especially, it's like stepping back into nostalgia haha. I'm on Season 3 for my rewatch currently.

How can people watch Gilmore girls past season 4? Rory becomes such a bad person that I just gave up watching. The charm of the show from s1-s3 is lost as the show progresses.

No I don’t think Rory was a bad person and I jus feel like even though she cheated on dean I just feel like dean was weird and was too obsessive and she deserve someone better he will leave her like twenty messages and call so many times that even Lorelai got fed up

cheating with a married man is unforgivable. Rory becomes a homewrecker and the other woman when she does this. If she became a better person and realised her mistake then, sure, I would continue to watch the show but her personality becomes so annoying and she has no redeemable actions. She goes on to date Dean after sleeping with him not mention in the revival she's sleeping with Logan who is engaged! I honestly loved Rory's character is s1-3 but I gradually hated her.
