I unabashedly love Gilmore Girls with my everything. It’s not just a show.
It’s a lifestyle.
It’s a religion.
I love Amy Sherman-Palladino’s rapid and smart dialogue, the characters that inhabit the small town of Stars Hallow, and the town itself. My obsession may have led me to research what town Stars Hallow was based on in preparation for moving there one day because what could be better? Not much people, not much.
How about the song that Grant-Lee Phillips, the town troubadour, sings in episode 78’s (S4 E13) Nag Hammadi Is Where They Found the Gnostic Gospels? I love it. Have for years now. It’s called ‘Mona Lisa’ by the way.
And how many jobs did Kirk have over the series? Trick question! What job didn’t he have? He claimed to have had over 15,000 jobs and saved 2.5 million dollars in his lifetime. I believe him. How else could he have attempted to buy the Twickum house? My favorite was him running the Black, White, And Red Movie Theater. A movie theater that was run out of his living room that showed eclectic films, including his own short*.
But oye with the poodles, already! (Something I say all the time and nobody eeeever seems to get, but I digress…). Here’s the look back!
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life debuts on our savior of awesome things Netflix this November 25. Black Friday. Shopping can kiss my butt that day.
* You didn’t think I’d mention that and NOT show you the film by Kirk did you? I’m not that cruel. The short includes a cameo from Mary Lynn Rajskub and features the song ‘White Lines’ by Grandmaster Flash. I love it.
His love of most things in entertainment can be summed up by having an English Bulldog named Spielberg and consistently asking if it’s Halloween yet.
