5 Reasons We’ll Never Get Tired Of Rewatching ‘Gilmore Girls’

, , , , ,

If you havent watched Gilmore Girls yet, do it now.

Its seriously one of the best TV shows of all time.

Recently, the Internet has become obsessed with the show’s comeback.

Not only is its entire series streaming on Netflix, but a reunion show is also in the works.

There areapparentlyeven set photos of said reunion.

Is anyone else as excited as I am?

I just finished my third round of rewatching all seven seasons, and I know it wont be mylast.

Sure, I know what to expect. Nothing surprises me anymore.

Ive memorized nearly every line of every banter between Lorelai and Rory so much that if I could save my life with it, I probably could.

Gilmore Girls is a feel-good sitcom complete with relatable drama, endless laughter, incredible pop culture references and more.

No matter where you are in life or how many times you watch this show, it will always take you back to a good place.

Here are a few reasons why youll never get tired of rewatching Gilmore Girls:

1. It will make you think about your relationship with your mother.

Are you and your mother more Rory and Lorelai or Lorelai and Emily?

Either way, the relationships between the women in the show (as well as all of the family relationships) will make you think about your own.

Some yearn for the mother-daughter relationship Lorelai and Rory built over movies and junk food, while others side with the structured mother-daughter relationship between Lorelai and Emily.

Youll get to experience everything.

You’ll see the trials of being a single mother like Lorelai, the struggles of being an overachiever whos afraid to disappoint the family like Rory and even the tribulations of being an overprotective (but unfiltered) mother like Emily.

Every side has its own story.

Through all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, you get to live through each of these eccentric women, and sometimes, there are over-dramatic reactions and disappointing consequences.

Youll get to understand the meaning behind ones actions and begin to relate these situations to your own experiences.

So even if your mom is being as annoying as Emily, you know shes just trying to protect you because she loves you.

2. You will get your heart broken every time a Gilmore girl gets her heart broken.

When you watch Gilmore Girls from the beginning, you watch Rory grow into an experienced young woman in the world of dating.

You get frustrated as Lorelai goes from man to man and engagement to engagement.

(Ugh, why cant the woman just keep one?)

From Rorys first time saying, I love you to her first boyfriend Dean, to dating the flighty, inconsistent bad boy Jess, to moving in with the rich jet-setter Logan, you fall in love with each of these men the same way Rory does.

When Dean reminds you of your perfect first love, you begin to wonder why it never worked out with him.

After they broke up, got back together and broke up again, youre reminded of how fragile those times can be.

You begin to remember that teenage years feel like a lifetime, and young heartbreak never seems to heal.

Watching Rory cry it out and then find love again makesyou realize any of these guys may not have been the one for her.

From a viewers perspective, you begin to understand that your own heartbreak is not the end of the world.

You will find the right one eventually, or maybe hes always been there right in front of you.

(Lorelai and Luke FTW!)

3. You will be inspired to explore every pop culture reference.

There must be a Guinness World Record for a TV show with the most pop culture references, and it has to belong to Gilmore Girls.

Every single episode is filled with them, and most of the time, you may not even notice between all the hilarious babble.

Even some of the characters in the show rarely know what Lorelai and Rory are referencing.

Between Rorys black hole of a library and Lorelais obsession with film and TV, youll begin to gain curiosity into the books, movies and music the Gilmores live their lives by.

Youll be inspired to read every book Rory has had her head stuck in, and youll want to have a junk food movie marathon with every old movie Lorelai has hoarded in her home.

You can never say you dont have anything to watch because the Gilmore girls are overflowing with suggestions.

If you need one (or 500), just play one episode and youll be all set.

4. Youll get to live in a small town without living in a small town.

Stars Hollow is the town youve always wanted to live in and the town youll never want to live in at the same time.

As a New Yorker, Ive spent many hours admiring the starlit walks around the gazebo and the daily routine at Lukes Diner.

I looked forward to the shenanigans at Taylor Dooses town hall meetings, and Ive always wondered how long (rather, how short) it took to walk around the entire town.

Gilmore Girls created the eccentric world of Stars Hollow with characters we love to love and love to laugh at.

For viewers who live in cities like New York (or even on the West Coast), Stars Hollow is the perfect getaway.

Youll get to hear the towns marching bands and smell the aftermath of lost Easter Eggs.

Youll feel the claustrophobia in Mrs. Kims antique shop and taste the decadent preparations of Sookies dinner at the Dragonfly Inn.

Youll miss Stars Hollow as much as Rory does as she sets off to Yale.

5. The music alone will make you happy.

If I could have a theme song for my own life, it would be Carole Kings Where You Lead.

If youve ever watched Gilmore Girls at all, youve definitely sang along to that one.

Within the first five minutes of the show, Gilmore Girls has you smiling, dancing and singing along.

Throughout the show, the music perfectly transitions from scene to scene with similar upbeat melodies that give you a certain level of feels.

It was never complete without a few scores of what some fans like to call the la, las, the sound of simple guitar strings and soothing vocals of Sam Phillips.

Any Gilmore Girls fan knows what Im talking about.

If you dont, listen to this:

When there isnt appropriate background music varying from Elvis Costello to Macy Gray, you can always count on Stars Hollows town troubadour to provide a happy sing-along.

Between the theme song and shows scores, the music portrays the positive, exuberant, carefree personalities of Lorelai, Rory and the world they live in.

Now, go ahead and immerse yourself into the wonderful world of “Gilmore Girls.”

As the girls would say,

Youll laugh, youll cry… ‘Cause youre laughing so hard.
