So while we sit around waiting for Amy Sherman-Palladino to write the reunion we've been dreaming about for far too long, we decided to do some digging and discovered 23 secrets hidden around Stars Hollow.Alex Borstein was originally cast to play Sookie and even filmed the pilot episode.
That particular subplot tends to go in circles without acquiring much in the way of depth or texture.Czuchry’s performance is faultless, but the show goes to that well more than it should have.“Gilmore Girls” was never in the business of supplying gritty realism — and hooray for that — but sometimes its so unrealistic that it intrudes on one’s enjoyment of the show.They talked so fast, we're just now catching up.Once upon a time, you voted Lorelai Gilmore the TV mom you most wanted as your own, and we couldn't agree more.The early sections of the first episode dwell heavily on cameos from returning characters and spend a lot of time recapturing the vibe in the small Connecticut town of Stars Hollow, where grumpy diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) sighs at freeloaders who want his wifi password, and where the sweetly wayward Kirk (Sean Gunn) is excited about yet another preposterous money-making scheme.
But for those who want a retreat from reality in order to spend time in this beautiful little Brigadoon of a town, where a scheme to install a new sewer system is one of the most pressing issues on the local agenda, these “Gilmore Girls” episodes will feel like a warm blanket on a cold winter night.
The terse Luke gets fewer big moments, but the way he has always lovingly and exasperatedly held his own with Lorelai has always been one of the show’s chief draws.
Speaking of other men in the orbits of the Gilmore women, “A Year in the Life” might serve as something of a referendum among fans: How much Logan (Matt Czuchry) did anyone really want?
In its previous seasons, fans got used to putting up with the show’s more tiresome excesses because the good stuff was so often worth waiting for, and that’s the case here.
“Gilmore Girls” distracts viewers with fun, silly tangents (and the supporting cast is uniformly good at supplying those kinds of moments).
A death in any family kicks off a reshuffling of relationships and priorities that can be difficult to navigate in the best of circumstances, and given how prickly Emily and Lorelai’s relationship was to begin with, their post-Richard year is often an emotional minefield.
