We were going to put this post up tomorrow, but right now it’s midnight, Gilmore Girls goes live in three hours, and like a kid waiting for Santa, I am too excited to sleep. In case you’re in the same boat, here’s a little something to read.
This day is a long time coming. Not only has it been almost a decade since Gilmore Girls went off the air, it has been over a year since we found out that the show was coming back to Netflix. Shortly after we found out about it, we gathered ourselves for a town meeting of sorts. In this post we discussed how we found out about the reboot, our feelings about Netflix as a platform, casting and those last four words.
T: When we tell our (maybe) kids about the revival, it’ll be akin to older folks telling stories about where they were when JFK was shot or like Ted Mosby telling a horrible story. “Kids, I’m gonna tell you the story of the exact moment I found out a Gilmore Girls revival was happening.”
M: If this revival hadn’t happened, my future children were going to have to to hear a 10-year-long story about how Luke and Lorelai probably didn’t end up together, instead. So really, everyone wins.
T: The day – Monday, October 19th. The time – around 2:30pm. The location – my office. I have to constantly be checking the Internet for entertainment news, and when I was checking my Twitter, I saw a post from Michael Ausiello of TVLine.com pop up that said this:
I really wanted to yell WHAT!!?!?!? out loud but there were others in the vicinity who would no doubt question my sanity, so I said it at a very low tone to myself and began digging deeper into the supposed revival.
M: Should I be concerned that it’s only been a week and I have zero recollection of how I found out? Those hypothetical kids are totally going to put me in a home, aren’t they? In any case, I was very pleased but also assumed that it was another one of those articles that comes out every couple months after a cast member appears on a podcast. Ahem.
