Gilmore News is LiveTweeting #GilmoreGirls ‘That’ll Do Pig’ after Sunday lunch – Gilmore News ReWatch! #GNRW


In the absence of having you all round my place to watch some Gilmore Girls, this is the next best thing.  Also it saves on clearing up afterward.

If you’re not on Twitter, you can still follow along – basically watching me shouting out the window at strangers – right here:

For those of you who are on Twitter, tweet up!  If there are enough of us to start talking over each other, even better.  Word vomit is encouraged – regular readers will know I do it every Tuesday.

Be sure to include #gnrw (for GilmoreNews ReWatch) on every one of your random thoughts and if you’re talking to someone else, include their @username too. I’m @bunheader.

I’ve randomly picked episode 10 of season 3, ‘That’ll Do Pig’, so queue it up and be ready to press play on your well-loved DVD or shiny new Netflix stream on Sunday October 12 at exactly: 

1pm US West Coast time

4pm US East Coast

9pm UK time

For other locations, plug your city into this handy tool.  Synchronize watches with the Greenwich Mean Time clock and I’ll be online about 10 minutes before, to hand out popcorn and roasted nuts.

I’m expecting to see Rory in plaid, a visit from Trix and maybe some Jess and Dean action. I don’t recall the Babe reference in the title but hopefully that’ll become clear.  If anyone wants to add drinking game rules, feel free to comment below e.g. one shot every time Jess makes his confused-angry face.  You might need a big bottle for that rule.  And an understanding boss for the Monday morning after.

Hope to see you there.  If even one of you shows up, it’ll be a blast.  And much less embarrassing.

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    I will be there!!!! And I cannot believe you don’t remember where the title is from in the episode…I won’t spoil it for you, but be on the lookout for it when they are having their “adult dinner” at the Independence Inn.

      I hope they’re not eating pork. Link sausages?
