Gilmore Girls

5.08.2013


This past Christmas, I received one of my favorite gifts of all time: The complete series of Gilmore Girls. And today I finished re-watching the last of the 153 episodes. Gilmore Girls is by far my favorite TV show of all time, and I think it always will be. In high school I would come home and watch Gilmore Girls on ABC Family most afternoons. That's when I really fell in love with the show. I thought I had seem all of them, but I was surprised while watching this time around that there were actually 1 or 2 episodes I hadn't seen. I really enjoyed re-watching and I'm sad that I'm already finished. I even tried to go slow but 5 months was as slow as I could possibly go. (And I almost want to start it all over again, tomorrow!)

My favorite episodes are probably the Yale years, but I also really like the episodes where they flash back to Lorelai's high school days. There are just SO many good ones. Here are a few of my favorite episodes (in no particular order):


"You Jump, I Jump, Jack" - You will quickly notice that my favorite episodes all have to do with huge productions that you really only believe can happen on TV or in movies. I LOVE when they would do things like this on the show. Seriously, jumping from scaffolding hundreds of feet high with umbrellas? and nothing goes wrong? and it's fun? Amazing.

"The Festival of Living Art" -  Again, huge production. This idea fascinates me. I want to go to a real festival of living art. Is there such a thing?


"'S Wonderful, 'S Marvelous" - Probably the coolest date known to mankind. Who wouldn't love this? A mysterious date, that starts with an old mustang, a drive to a lovely old farm where a great movie is projected onto the side of a barn? and your date brought candy and popcorn? So awesome.


"That Damn Donna Reed" - The outfit, the planning, all of it great.


"I Get a Sidekick Out of You" - I love the running between all of the wedding festivities, all for Lane and Zach, and the changing of outfits. 58 seats and 62 Koreans. Perfect.

"They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?" - A seriously fun Stars Hallow Event, the annual Stars Hollows Dance Marathon. I love all of the outfits. I really enjoy pretty much all of Stars Hallow, and wish it was a real place.


And of course "Bon Voyage" -  I feel like this episode was wrapped up very quickly, but I will forever love the rain covering that Luke made out of tarps, tents, umbrellas...etc. for Lorelai. So romantic.

I have lots of other favorites, but these were a few of the first ones that came to my mind. Are you a Gilmore fan? What are your favorite episodes? You're not a Gilmore Girls fan? Want to borrow my DVDs?

  1. Oh my gosh I love this show and I am so sad it's not on anymore. I quote it all the time!! Like "Oy with the poodles already" and that bit with Michelle and Lorelai when she asks him to answer the phone and he says no because "people are particularly stupid today." SO awesome!! I love the episodes where Luke and Lorelai are together. Perfect!!

  2. just looking at this made me so happy and giddy and all fluttery inside. i grew up on that show & it'll always be so special & nostalgic for me. and when you've watched through the episodes as many times as i have…well, you're pretty much guaranteed to run into something every day that triggers your gg-memory. and don't even get me started on the dialogue and cornucopia of perfectly apt pop culture references. so good.

    i think my favorite episodes are the yale years as well…but i do love the dance marathon. and the episode when kirk gets a cat. named kirk. hilare.

  4. I don't know where I was during the GG craze but I unfortunately never saw much of it. I've loved what I've seen, so maybe I'll have to get the dvds from the library or something because it really does look so great!
