As I re-watch this series in 2014 I am delighted to report that it has held up over time. Though many years later, the plot and snappy pop-culture filled dialogue is still relevant as ever and Lorelai/Rory remains one of the best-ever depicted mother/daughter relationships on TV.

Ugh, is there anything better than a Gilmore Girls binge watching session? This show just doesn’t get old. I mean, best mother/daughter duo of all time: Lorelai + Rory; best couple of all time: Lorelai + Luke; and most perfect couple of all time: Rory + Jess. And then, of course, the most perfect couple that ever wasn’t…Jess + Me? Duh…

The writers nailed the fast-talking characters and pop-culture references to a ‘T,’ cementing Gilmore Girls in feel-good-series history. We laugh with our Gilmore girls, cry with them, and wish we were them, all nine season long…but we’re also slightly skeptical of their raging metabolisms (I wish!). Long story short, if you haven’t watched GG, start now. No questions. Just do it.

Just finished this show for the first time and I'm glad I did. It was girly but not too girly. Very heartfelt and touching, with a onslaught of quick witty banter throughout the series, Gilmore Girls is a great comedic show about a mother and daughter and their relationships with the people who they love.

Don't judge me, but I didn't think the seventh season was bad at all. Of course April is the worst, but even Stars Hollow should be home to annoying pre-teens. Overall, obviously one of the best shows of the aughts. Oh, and Lauren Graham is everything.

My addiction when I was growing up. Still digging into Rory's book list, but my favourite by far was Lorelai and her snappy comebacks.

My all time favourite show ever! So clever and witty! I admit that season 7 wasn't as good as the previous ones but when the main writer leaves of course the show is going to suffer. I'm still holding out hope that she will release the ending she had in mind though!

Not surprised it concluded when it did - would have been difficult to keep the same dynamic going after Rory went off on her own. Would have been good to see a Luke/Lorelai wedding though.

The best part of the show is the rapid fire conversations that Loralai excel at with rapid wit and non sense things. I was happy to hear that Netflix is bring it back for 4 long episodes. I can't wait to see what everyone is up to.

I have watched the complete series several years ago. I added it to my tracker because I really want to watch it again. It is a show that stands the test of time.
