I'm Watching Gilmore Girls for the First Time

For the past ten years, I have heard "You need to watch Gilmore Girls" dozens of times. Since I am stubborn and don't want to give people the satisfaction of me liking popular TV shows, I am just now starting it. In the past month, I've watched Gilmore Girls almost every day and have made it through season 3.


In somewhat of a particular order, here are thoughts I've had while watching Gilmore Girls.

  • Melissa McCartney!

  • Private school is a lot of work.

  • Chad Michael Murray is at Chilton and named... Tristan...

  • Rory goes golfing in a killer outfit.

  • That golfing hat is going to kill Rory.

  • Lorelai named Rory after herself as a feminist move. I love it.

  • Lorelai wakes up just as well as I do.

  • I want to shop at Kim's Antiques but I think it's out of my price point.

  • Mrs. Kim is very good at getting things done.

  • Dean. I do not like him.

  • Mrs. Kim's logic is on point.

  • Rory cannot be dating Dean.

  • Paris is a lot.

  • Rory and Dean fell asleep in Miss Patty's barn.

  • Dean is a bad influence.

  • Lorelai and Mr. Medina are kind of cute in a totally wrong kind of way.

  • Don't kiss Max, Lorelai.

  • Lorelai's decision making skills suck.

  • Luke closed the diner to take Lorelai to the hospital to see her dad.

  • Luke needs to put that hat back on.

  • I can't believe Grandpa set up an interview for Rory at Yale.

  • Jackson and Sookie. Jackson and Sookie? Jackson and Sookie!

  • I wonder if men think I am as tall as Jackson's cousin thinks Lorelai is.

  • Luke had a girlfriend?!

  • Who is this Rachel?

  • Lorelai had an eight year old by the time she was my age.

  • Secret societies in high school are intense.

  • Rory reads. I like Rory.

  • Lorelai drives me nuts.

  • Max proposed over the phone?

  • Max proposed period.

  • How is Lorelai going to hide this engagement from her parents?

  • Sweet Paris' issues with her parents. She just wants love and attention.

  • That means some of girls I went to high school with have eight year olds.

  • Kids scare me. How do people my age do it?

  • Why would they go to a party with guys they met at The Bangles concert? Dangerous!

  • Luke and Lorelai's not-painting party and not-a-date date is adorable.

  • CHRISTOPHER. Meow.

  • Christopher is going to wreck Lorelai and Luke's not-a-date date.

  • But I am kind of ok with it.

  • Michel is straight?

  • Lorelai called Christopher at her bachelorette party. What does that mean?

  • Luke is not very good at town meetings.

  • Lorelai is no longer engaged.

  • Why do you run away from everything, Lorelai?

  • Christopher and Lorelai were expected to get married at 16?

  • Christopher and Lorelai had sex on her childhood home patio.

  • What high school boy has the money to buy his girlfriend a car?

  • I need a boyfriend who can pay off my car.

  • Dean loves Rory. Rory is speechless.

  • Rachel is not Luke's type.

  • Why did Christopher have to go and get Sherry pregnant?

  • Kirk. Kirk. Kirk.

  • Rory cannot read at a party.

  • Rory cannot kiss Tristen at a party.

  • Rory cannot kiss Tristen period.

  • Babette and that darn cat.

  • I love Sherry's planning.

  • I want Sookie and Lorelai to buy that inn.

  • Grandma Trix is so much, but I love watching Emily interact with her.

  • Emily regifted Trix's gift?! That is not her.

  • Michel's mom is adorably too much.

  • Lorelai's love for snow is killing me.

  • Just like she will be killed by letting all that cold, snowy air in the house.

  • Paris, chill. It's student council, not the senate.

  • Lorelai bought clothes for Luke. Awwww.

  • Rory fled to her grandparents house and didn't tell Lorelai.

  • Wait. Rory went to the city to meet Jess?!

  • Sweet Lane trying to find love.

  • Rory, do not kiss Jess.

  • Lane is too cute with her band.

  • The flashback scene where Emily tells Lorelai to run around the block so she can fit into her dress is so sad.

  • Their feet must hurt from all that dancing.

  • Kirk won the dance-a-thon!

  • Kirk annoys me.

  • Luke without a hat!

  • I still don't like Dean.

  • Rory kissing Jess and everyone roasting her is perfect.

  • I wish I could cook like Sookie.

  • Deep frying Thanksgiving.

  • Is there a Mr. Kim?

  • It makes me laugh everytime Milo comes on screen.


I love this show.
