Gilmore Girls, staged in the storybook town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, follows the story of Lorelai Gilmore, her daughter, Rory Gilmore, and their everyday drama.
Lorelai Gilmore is a sarcastic, single mom, working at an inn to support her daughter, who dreams of attending Harvard. Lorelai reconnects with her well-off parents who have shunned her for her life choices through weekly dinners in order to send Rory to a private school and college.
Lorelai and Rory are each other’s best friend and support one another through school, boy trouble, daily trials and tribulations, and all the choices they must make in their lives.
The people of Stars Hollow add to the show and create the perfect town where everyone knows everyone, from the manager of the grocery store, who is also the town selectman (mayor), to the town gossips, who seem to know everything about everyone’s life.
The set design of Stars Hollow and its events are what viewers remember. Stars Hollow had numerous town functions including the Forties Dance Marathon, the Night of the Living Art, and Winter Festival. It’s nearly impossible not to be jealous that you don’t live there.
As great as Gilmore Girls was, it ended less than spectacularly. In 2006, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband Daniel couldn’t come to an agreement with the CW, the original network. The last season was not finished the way Palladino had wanted and left viewers and fans unsatisfied.
However, on November 25, Netflix will release a revival of the series in four 90-minute episodes, with Palladino in charge. Hopefully, fans will get the ending they have longed for.
