I never would have imagined it: A mash-up between Gilmore Girls and Murder She Wrote. Nerdist has shared a unique birthday present created for a woman named Elisabeth Allie–a single comic book page combining her two favorite shows. (Click the Nerdist link to see the whole page.)
It takes a bit of squinting to read it and from what I can make out, it’s set during the episode “Road Trip to Harvard” (Season 2, Episode 4) where Lorelai has decided not to marry Max and instead, takes Rory on an impromptu road trip.
Now, on the merits of the results, I’m not going to comment on. Of course, anything not written or supervised by the Palladinos ever sounds quite right. However, note that the writer, Brian Michael Bendis, is one of the most prominent writers in the comic book industry, so having him involved helps add to the gesture of the gift.
I’ve actually thought about a Gilmore Girls mash-up before, but not with Murder She Wrote where you know Taylor would quickly end up dead in front of his market with a real chalk mark around him. My idea was a mash-up with Doc Martin. Watch it on Netflix or Hulu if you haven’t; it should appeal to anyone who likes GG. I could see a perfect fit since it’s about an ever-exasperated big-city doctor who moves to a quaint village. What if he moved to Stars Hollow? There’s no one better at exasperating someone than Lorelai Gilmore.
Have you thought of any Gilmore Girls mash-ups?
