Hello all, hope you’ve been well. A little PSA for anyone who’s had their head in the sand…
The Blu-Ray and DVD release date for Gilmore Girls : A Year In The Life is November 28! That’s just long enough to start an advent calendar tomorrow and have a smashing present on the big day. A chocolate-laden advent calendar, obviously.
November 28th is the US release date and you can pre-order now from the usual suspects for $20, give or take a couple of bucks. The UK release is November 27th – a full 24 hours earlier – however the flip side is the price. The DVD only appears to be officially available as part of a £70 51-disc set! Disgraceful.
For those of you who have not yet had the pleasure of watching the new episodes, I applaud your insane reserves of patience and I hope it lives up to your expectations. I’ve written warmly before about how much I wanted and truly needed these authentic additions and for me, they were spot on.
I look forward to the new wave of comments from those watching the new episodes for the first time. If I might dare to suggest one thing though: savour them, rather than binge. Even though Amazon labels it ‘Season 1’ there is no guarantee of anything more and they do deserve to be appreciated in the moment.
Are you one of the patient, long-sufferers? I’d like to know how you managed it.
Have you booked a day off to binge the whole six hours?
Are you shelling out £70 just for the extra episodes?
In other news, I’m finally reading Lauren Graham’s ‘Talking as Fast as I Can’ and she gives some lovely colour to her experiences on the original series and the new episodes. If you don’t have it yet, add it on your Christmas list. Hmm, what’s that in the air… can’t you smell it?
