The foundational story of Gilmore Girls begins with a woman who overcomes adversity. A 16-year-old pregnant runaway who is able to build a life for herself and her daughter. It’s a triumphant beginning. And in many ways Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life exists as a triumphant story as […]
After what feels like eons of waiting, we all finally got the chance to devour Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life this past weekend. With all the anticipation surrounding it, it feels like a serious comedown after the fact. On top of that, I’m surprised that the revival left […]
