Sunday Afternoon #GilmoreGirls Re-Watch LiveTweet was a Blast! #gnrw


Thanks to everyone who came along to our first Gilmore News ReWatch Live Tweet session earlier today.  We hope you had as much fun as we did!

Silly rabbit...

Special thanks to @AKSmith6, @GilmoreGirlsBoy and @ButItWasOnSale for some spicy repartee and finely tuned observations such as:

Alicia: With that cane Trix looks like a pimp #GNRW

Mandolins: Snow cones in the middle of winter, is that a thing? Also, Rory, that is not how we throw. #onestepbackwardforfemenism #gnrw

And poor old Francie didn’t fare very well:


The whole event felt like hanging out with buds on a wet Sunday in front of a warm fire on a comfy comfy sofa.

Some surprising points came up, like… 

  • noticing the outbreak of furry-collar-itis that spread as the episode progressed (Dean was the likely Patient Zero)
  • the charm of Stars Hollow includes same-sex toilets, which is unlucky for Dean’s sister – or Constipated Clara as she is more commonly known
  • nobody really knows which one is Madeline and which is Louise

The entire conversation is here:

Hope y’all had fun too.  (Someone else can host next time ‘cos it’s gonna take me hours to clean this mess up.)

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 wish I hadn’t missed it :( I had watched some episode recently, and was full of yearning of sharing some dialogues or observations. Maybe you’ll do it another time! At least it demonstrates that the series is still alive, loved by more and more fans that discover Gilmore Girls, and who know, maybe that will help to have the movie we hope :)
