My heart is shattered, all over the floor… what the fudge happened?
Gilmore Girls was one of my favorites when growing up, I remember it as if it were yesterday. I would waltz right through the door, dropping my bag filled with homework by the hall, and get comfortable while waiting for an episode to start.
It was my after-school routine, and nothing brought me that warm-fuzzy feeling on the inside as Gilmore Girls did. It was one of those shows that you maybe didn’t laugh out loud to through an entire episode, or maybe you did. The drama wasn’t over the top, no massive cliffhangers that left you on the edge, yet, it was entertaining and cozy. Gilmore Girls was cozy, and so, when I found out they were coming back, oh boy, it was one of the greatest news, and I couldn’t wait to feel that warm cozy feeling again… that is, until I watched an episode, and my brain went into hibernation for an hour and a half.
As the title, ”A year in the life,” the mini-series is split into four seasons.
In season 1 – Winter, we are once again being greeted with not only the charming town of Stars Hollow but also with our lovable characters that we remember so well.
We welcome back the Gilmore trio, Emily, Lorelai, and Rory. Sadly, one great character that was dearly missed was Rory’s grandfather Richard Gilmore. Played the late Edward Herrmann, who passed away in 2014.
Now, back to the shattering of my heart. Let’s start off with the show in general; it seemed like it was more of a play set on stage than anything else.
The way they moved around, acted, and talked was painful to watch. It also seemed as if they for some unknown reason had forgotten how to properly act.
The script was one of the dullest ones ever, the lines were just as dry as the Zahara dessert, and on each attempted jokes, I swear I heard crickets in the background.
The storyline was just as boring, I was strongly forcing myself to continue finishing it, thinking, and deeply praying that maybe by some miraculous reason, it would take speed, and become better… it didn’t.
I have no idea what happened, the idea was there, and I was thrilled that they were back, but this was not only a disappointment to all Gilmore Girls around the globe but also an insult to the Gilmore girls show back in the day. 2/10
If you, like myself were a fan of the show, I suggest you stay away from this and keep treasured the good old times of Gilmore Girls, and leave it at that.
