'Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ Review: Dealing with Seasons’ Discontent, The Girls Highly Unexpected Last Four Words!
After nearly a decade of conjecture, the moment of truth is finally here! "Gilmore Girls" enthusiasts are finally satisfied after the supposed last season finale when it initially wrapped up eight years ago.
A dose of warning, though, spoilers ahead, so better thread carefully.
The highly anticipated Netflix's remake, 'Gilmore Girls: A year in the Life' consists of four 90-minute episodes, each set in a different season of the year: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Here is a review of the motivated reboot for the not so faint-hearted!
Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop) is grief-stricken with the death of her husband, Richard Gilmore (actor Edward Herrmann died in 2014), whom she had been married to for fifty years. At his funeral, Emily and her daughter, Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), had a squabble and the rift between them remains unfixed. It seems time, change, and even death isn't enough to fix the unhappy past.
Off we go to the second Gilmore, Lorelai, being a mother dealing with her daughter (trying to teach her how to be in a happy relationship), whilst being a good daughter to her grieving mother is a lot to handle. Adding up her relationship with Luke Danes (Scott Patterson), overthinking if leveling things up is a must.
Finally, the third Gilmore, Rory (Alexis Bledel), now 32, is still the same, a little inconsiderate, apprehensive about her life and still expecting for her "Big Thing". Confused between her long-time beau of two years, Paul, and a short-term fling with Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry), she was overwhelmed with life as she came home to her mother jobless and broke.
"Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband, Daniel Palladino, who served as a writer, director and executive producer on the show that ran from 2000 to 2007 had made the reboot of the show just the way devoted and anticipating viewers want it to be - witty and whimsy, with pop-culture references, the family conflict, the perfectly calibrated insults - exactly the way it was before.
The infamous last four words Sherman-Palladino envisioned and kept secret for a long time were revealed, leaving viewers (together with Lorelai) aghast:
"Mom?" Yeah?" "I'm pregnant." Those words depict to be open-ended, to be debated and to remind the viewers that the future is infinite, exactly how the creator envisioned it to be.
