Tell Us About the DVD!


The DVD and Blu-Ray of Gilmore Girls : A Year In The Life comes out today in the UK and tomorrow in the US. If you’re anything like us, you will feel the need to talk about it and where better than right here?

For reference, my take on the Winter episode is right here with spoilers for Winter only although avoid reading through the comments if you’re still (astonishingly) going spoiler-free.

The UK is *still* stuck with only one official avenue for purchasing A Year In The Life.  A 51-disc DVD option containing all the original episodes plus the new ones for £69.99 and is currently scoring 1.5 out of 5 on Amazon for that very reason.  What the heck guys!?!

For those who do get the DVD, can you let us know if there are any DVD or Blu Ray extras? And does the cover really sport those rather random screenshot photos? And maybe let us know what you think about the show too. Honestly I think it’s impossible not to want to scream an opinion.

Can’t wait to hear what you have to say. Enjoy!



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.

    Picked up the DVD today at Walmart for 18.96 [2 remaining copies in stock]. Did not see a Blu-Ray option but maybe that’s just my tunnel vision at work. Labeling did not indicate any extras and did not credit anyone but the Palladinos and the four principal actors. If you were not looking for this, it would be easy to miss. Only saw it because I knew what the random pictures on the cover were supposed to look like. Really bare bones low-budget effort. Figure I will take my time with this, maybe get through it by year’s end–

      Lovely! Thanks for the update. Are you waiting for a good day or a bad day?

    Waiting for a day free from political idiocy which means I may never get to watch it!!

    Received the full box set for Christmas, it is just the original box set repackaged into the cardboard concertina files, plus the revival. In one respect i prefer it because the disc info is actually printed on the back of the card so easier to read then the case inserts. The revival discs is just the episodes, no special features which is disappointing to say the least. It feels more like an obligation release not something thought out and planned for fan enjoyment.

    Volevo esprimere il mio parere in generale sulla “Storia Infinita” di Gilmore Girls :

    Dopo tanti anni che seguo non solo le puntate ma anche le vicissitudini del revival (che non ho visto, quindi se mi ha deluso non lo so):

    SONO STANCA !!!! (Anche dei fans e dei loro continui ‘capricci’)

    Se poi si aggiunge – come ha fatto emergere Matt in alcune recentissime interviste (non ne sono sicura perché non comprendo bene l’ inglese) – Rory e Logan non saranno insieme. Storica e Convinta Sophies quale sono (per le mie motivazioni personale Sophies vi invito a leggere altri articoli e/o altri canali comunicativi) :
