Review (Spoiler Free!):

I…Watched this the day it came out…a year ago. And never finished and posted this…Because I’m good at this blogging thing.

Look. I love Gilmore Girls, and season seven was kind of a let down (different show runner and everything), so I’m glad we got this sort of closure/glimpse into the future.

Do I wish somethings were different? Yes. Rory seemed to have grown very little as a person in the intervening years, like they were picking up at her at 20 when we was in her 30s. So it lost some impact their. Her struggles were honest – but Gilmore Girls and the whole journey we took and Rory’s bright shining future…it felt like we were cheated out of something.

I liked that we got this. I enjoyed it a lot. But it also raised my questions for the fate of our Gilmore Girls than it really answered, which was cruel when these 4 episodes are al their releasing.











1 – Loreili and Luke’s wedding was everything I’ve ever wanted – that should have been the entire show.

2 – The last words… I wish  see saw some resolution with that. At least who the father was (everyone swears its Logan, but some confirmation would have been nice.) and I think they really would have worked better at the end of the original show, rather than here.
