Season 1, Episode 2: The Lorelais' First Day at Chilton

I tried to go to Gilmore Girls trivia in Seattle last week but the bar hit capacity and they wouldn't let us in. I thought of ways I could flirt with the bouncer but then I realized my sad life; the only time I would ever flirt with a bouncer to get into a bar would be for Gilmore Girls trivia, or Harry Potter trivia, or Lord of the Rings trivia... That being said, my patient friend waited with me outside while I answered the first round of trivia from the street and I got all of them right. I don't win at many things in my life, but this would have been one of them, I am sure. Then we ate ice cream sundaes to drown our sorrows. 

So moving on... Let's get to reviewing all 153 episodes of Gilmore Girls in 153 words or less. 

XTC "The Man Who Murdered Love" is a great song. 

Lorelai and her Paul Frank thermal, very important. I myself wore a Paul Frank shirt in my sixth grade school picture. Inspired by Lorelai? maybe... 

I remember it was like the coolest pop culture knowledge to know that Chad Michael Murray was on Gilmore Girls BEFORE One Tree Hill. Rory before Peyton... or Brooke... or however the hell he ends up with. 

Jackson is the original hipster who wears his beanies above his ears. 

When Kirk isn't Kirk yet but a DSL installation guy.

Lane's foxy sweatshirt is also very important

Lorelai talking about dating Luke in Season 1 EPISODE 2, those bastards made us wait so long.

I'm not sure how this is ending up to be mostly about early 2000s fashion...  

Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

In the spirit of the Gilmore Girls revival coming out on November 25th, I have decided to watch all 153 episodes of Gilmore Girls and blog about them in 153 words or less. It is basically about books because this is like the most bookish show around. By the way, this little intro does not count towards the 153. So here we go...

I love that the first pop culture reference is a Jack Kerouac one.

Rory's white sweater is really important. 

When Dean first sees Rory, Rory is saying the words “bundle of sticks up your butt.” Premonition on how horrible Dean will be?

Dean is gross. And will always be gross. 

Melissa McCarthy brings me an inappropriate amount of joy.

Things I still say to this day: “I want to take a bath in that sauce!”

and... “People are particularly stupid today and I can’t talk to any more of them”

The way Rory first talks to Dean when they meet is disgustingly close to how I first talked to my husband when we met. 

The nostalgia I feel when I hear Sam Phillips is real AF. "That's Where the Colors Don't Go" comes on and my heart just can't.

Lorelai’s feminism is so important. Fight me on it. Please. 

Macy Gray. That’s all.
