THE ETERNAL AUTUMN REWATCH OF GILMORE GIRLS


For me, and I think so many others, feeling the need to watch Gilmore girls from season one episode one as soon as it’s officially autumn comes hand in hand with listening to Taylor swift, big jumpers and strong hot coffees. I am going to try my best to explain the love I have for this show and how it is so seasonally appropriate, regardless of the season it may be in whatever episode. 



Needless to say, my boyfriend, my family and my friends find my seemingly constant re-watching of shows tiresome but especially when it’s Gilmore girls. For me, for no particular reason, watching Gilmore girls gives me the exact same feeling as the start of a new school year. A fresh start, positive vibes and a renewed energy. I realise I’m 24 years old, I’ve not had a start to a new school year for quite some time, but my whole life it has been my absolute favourite time of year. The smell of new school uniform, paired with shiny shoes and a carefully planned low messy bun. I didn’t love school or anything, I just loved the start to a new school year, and there’s not much depth as to why, just a feeling. Gilmore Girls gives me that same feeling. 


The opening to the first episode, playing The La’s there she goes, an autumnal anthem if I ever did hear one. It’s the nostalgia of being back in school, a beautiful and complex mother daughter relationship and so much dialogue. I am a talker and my mind goes at a million miles an hour, and Gilmore girls keeps my attention, quick wit and sarcastic comments make the show what it is. 


The characters are loveable and detestable in equal measures, they’re all inherently flawed, making them multi faceted unlike so many male written female characters. It is realistic, whilst also being entirely ludicrous, how anyone is uninterested by it baffles me. 


I am however only this attached to the first few series, I’m absolutely not invested in Rorys life at Yale, or with Logan at all. I think Dean is a wonderful first boyfriend to Rory and I adore Jess but I also don’t think she should have ended up with any of them, as she didn’t. I think it’s important to note that although yes, boyfriends and boys are a big theme throughout the programme, they are never made to be the priority or sole interest of the main characters. Perhaps Madeline and Louise, but quite frankly I love that about them, I love that they were completely normal teenage girls. 


I wish I could adequately explain why Gilmore Girls  is the perfect autumnal watch but it’s so difficult, it’s a vibe or a feeling and I sound like fruit loop but I know it’s true. If you’re a Gilmore Girls fan, please let me know why you think Gilmore Girls is particularly autumnal because clearly I need a hand here!
