ATX Reunion – What Would You Ask The Gilmore Girls?

Share

There’s less than a month to go now until the Gilmore Girls cast reunion at the ATX Television Festival and all tickets are now SOLD OUT. At least one of our flock was lucky enough to get tickets but for the rest of us, EW.com will be broadcasting the reunion panel.

What questions would you want to ask Amy Sherman-Palladino and the cast?

Here’s my shortlist – narrowed down from a much much MUCH longer list…

Amy: Please write us a scene and have those present act it out right now.

Alexis: Team Dean, Jess or Logan? (I’d love her to say Team Rory).

Also Amy: What was the town loner protesting?

For All the Cast: What props or memorabilia did you yoink from the set? What do you think happened to your character after the show ended?

And a reminder that you still have a couple of hours to enter our competition to win a free book!

Rich

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 gilmorenews.com for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    A non-Gilmore question for those green-screen warriors Alexis [Sin City] and Sean [Guardians of the Galaxy].How was preparation for the scenes different [or even more difficult] than acting against real scenery and how close were you to visualizing what would actually show up on screen when you attended the movie premiere?

    If Amy had the chance to redo Gilmore Girls’ 7th season, would she do it? How would she change it/change its ending?

    When the right ending really comes? A Gilmore Girls movie? That would be so great!!! Rory, and her husband, maybe someone she met while working… I guess Luke and Lorelai are married… How many children have they…. Maybe a half sister and a brother for Rory? Or maybe, Amy would do her movie writing a romance around Rory who meets the perfect one for her… With suspense and all… I guess he would sum up all the characteristic of her preceding lovers… Why not… They are so many fans that want one, or the other one, or the third one…. But one that would be a kind of synthesis plus some characteristics of his one wouldn’t he be perfect? Rory is a woman, now… She has travelled around the world. She has been sad, and happy… So she can’t be totally the same we left in the cantina…

    I am so excited if you do have a reunion! i have read season 8,9,&10. which are fantastic. my question is if there is a reunion. Would you guys do a another season on TV or a movie? I have watched every season on Netflix over and over again, and enjoy it every time. I never get bored of watching this show. I wish i could be out there.

    I wud ask Amy to share a few hood casting stories, like the moment they knew Lauren was “the one” or anything fun from Ms. Patty’s, etc. I wud love to know some inside stuff.

    P.S. ASP has stated before that she wont step on other people’s work (ie S7) so i hope she stays classy and doesnt say exactly what she had planned … Hopefully they’ll announce a movie.
