^Standing in line at "Luke's Diner" a month or so ago^
I waited a few days to watch the Gilmore Girls revival...I needed everything to be perfect for the night I started it- boys in bed, candles lit, snacky snack ready to go.
I stopped "Winter" about 45 minutes into it because, for the life of me, I could not keep my eyes open.
I finally finished it....and even though I have enough thoughts to fill a 3 hour podcast, here are my 4 main thoughts from Gilmore Girls.
1. Lorelei looked fantastic.
Truly! Winter, in my opinion, was the perfect season to start with. Whoever styled Lauren Graham for all 4 episodes did a fantastic job. The opening scene ^ with her pink peacoat and poof toboggan (beanie) was absolutely perfect. I felt this way the entire time with Lorelei's hair, makeup, and outfits.
Rory's style, on the other hand, looked like my style in the early 2000s. Slightly *off*. Slightly ratchet. Slightly......why are you wearing business trousers with a sleeveless blouse and heels that just. don't. belong???!
^Seen here. Rory looking confusing and Lorelei styled perfectly. And Luke...wearing the same thing he's always worn....so maybe this is me being sexist.
And one more thing about Lorelei's style. Her Totes Y'all bag in Summer!!
I love Reese Witherspoon. I love this Draper James bag. And when I saw it, it gave me about 3 minutes of entertainment before the rest of the episode went on.
2. I remembered how much Lorelei truly annoys me.
I dislike Lorelei's character just as much as I dislike Lauren Graham's character, Sarah Braverman, in Parenthood. But somehow...I really like Lauren Graham playing these annoying, selfish, over-emotional human beings. (Side note: did you know she has a book out? On my to-read list.)
In the first episode, at Lorelei's father's funeral, Lorelei's totally inappropriate comments about her dad post-funeral, and her reaction to her mother's totally appropriate response, brought all those feelings back.
3. I am Team Dean.
And I don't care who knows it.
BUT! When Logan came on the screen for the first time, I literally gasped out loud. And then thought...."how dare you look this beautiful, Logan!! I can't betray Dean!!"
I loved Logan throughout the entire series. The elaborate and stunning Life and Death Brigade scene was by far my favorite from the series...that Tango scene-gorgeous!!
4. The "Last Four Words"
Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I really like how they ended the show. I think this is mainly because the entire series was unbearably boring and this actually got me excited and interested in what was going on.
*Rory is pregnant with the "Wookie's" baby and Jess steps up, marries Rory, and helps raise the child.
*Rory is pregnant with Logan's baby and they finally get married and travel and have 10 different homes around the world and do all the amazing things that don't really happen in real life.
Are we getting a movie? Another series? What'd you think about the revival?
