7 Reasons Why Gilmore Girls Is One Of My Favorite Shows


I started watching Gilmore Girls BEFORE I had kids.

I immediately fell in love with the show.

I watched Lorelai Gilmore and thought, "THAT'S the kind of mother I want to be."

For those who don't know, it's basically about Lorelai and how she raises her daughter Rory. Oh, and she had her at 16. So maybe Rory sort of raises Lorelai too. They live in a small town called Stars Hollow. All sorts of amusing people live there. (Kurt! Luke! Miss Patty! Mrs. Kim!)

So why is the show one of my favorites?

Let me count the reasons.









1. Lorelai and her daughter Rory are not morning people. Me either. I've written about it before. Many times.





2. Rory loves books. And she sniffs books. Me too. I have a photo on my Instagram where I'm sniffing a book.



3.  Lorelai understands the importance of caffeine. She loves coffee. I love Diet Coke. If we go without it, we aren't happy people.



4. Like Lorelai, I think I confuse my mother sometimes. She probably doesn't understand how someone who could be raised on fruits and vegetables and very little soda could now stuff her face with junk food and need Diet Coke in order to stay nice.



5. Mrs. Kim never fails to make me laugh. I'm grateful my parents weren't as overprotective as Mrs. Kim.



6.  There are so many awesome lines in the show. I actually say this one often. I know you're my kind of person if you get the reference. Some people go ?!! when I say it. But some are like, "I love Gilmore Girls too!" and I know we'll be friends forever.



7.  Lorelai is a fantastic mother. 




I'm proud to say that I have Natalie watching the show with me. If she hears the opening credits, she's all, "Gilmore Girls!" I hope we have the same relationship as Lorelai and Rory. I want the same relationship with my son, only it'll be slightly different. But we bond over our love for cake. 

Do you like Gilmore Girls?

  1. Can I second your post in its entirety? I used to drop everything when Gilmore Girls came on. I wish they would do re runs of Gilmore Girls here instead of Nanny or Roseanne for the umpteenth time!

  2. I love Gilmore Girls. I used to watch it every day when Gabbie was a baby and she would always perk up when she heard the opening theme!

  3. I've only watched bits here and there, but I am beyond excited that Netflix will be streaming it come October 1. Totally going to watch it all!

  4. I never gave Gilmore Girls a shot, which makes me sad because with your explanations, it sounds right up my alley. I'M COMING NETFLIX! Caffeine, smelling books, smarty pants lingo, I want.

  5. I've never missed an episode..
    I miss it.
    I love to smell books. I hate mornings. I hate them. I already have morning problems and I wake up two hours earlier than I'd like to feed two humans and three pets. And there's a litterbox.
    Can barely handle it.

  6. I never watched it! It's on my list to watch.

  7. I loved watching that show. When it ended and i watched the final episode i cried...a lot. I was sad for a few days too. It was one of my favorites and i bonded with those two characters in away i usually only connect with characters in books!

  8. Plus they love coffee and junk food, how could you not love them?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I record this show every single day, and watch the series over and over. It's a guilty pleasure for sure. My fiance claimed to "hate this show" until the other day when I caught him whistling the theme song. And last night I was watching and he was like, "wait, when did Lane get pregnant??" Haha, good times :)

  10. Love Gilmore Girls! I wish it was on Netflix so I could watch it whenever I want. I really watched it once or twice a day when I was on maternity leave with the twins. My daughter would watch it with me too. We wish we knew what channel and time we could watch it now. We miss those times!

    ReplyDelete
  11. LOVE it!!! And so glad I get to watch it all again.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes! Love it! Matt and I started watching it somewhere around season 3 or so. :)

  13. My daughter and I loved watching Gilmore Girls but she hates cake. So glad you share that love with your son. I have loved seeing his smile in your summer photos. You are an awesome mom.

  15. I have only seen bits and pieces, but I'm super intrigued by this show. I once saw a website where they listed every book referenced (or maybe just the books the two main ladies reference) on the show. I was very curious. I wonder if this is on netflix? Must look into this more. PS: LOL You were kinda hard to find on bloglovin'. Just saying. :)

  16. ...And now I see the link is all the way at the bottom and feel like a dipstick.

  17. I never really watched the show, maybe once in a while - but now I think I'll watch it on Netflix!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was so sad when Gilmore Girls ended. Um...Diet Coke and sniffing books? We would totally be friends in real life :)!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Siiiiigh....now I need to watch the Gilmore girls. Mrs. Kim has been intrigued since Kim is my maiden name, and for some reason, I feel like I may see some of my mother in her....

  20. My gf and I used to watch this show all the time - hilarious. I would prolly still watch it but I'm one of those super insane people who doesn't have TV and doesn't understand how to watch TV online. I betcha the library has copies of the show, though? Maybe I can get back with my Gilmore Girls after all!

    PS I promise I'm not 82.

  21. I was in junior high and high school when Gilmore Girls was on and my mom and I would watch that show together and laugh and cry.

    Best. Show. Ever.

    I would like to take the credit for getting GG put onto Netflix as I tweeted Netflix to do so on a consistent basis.

    You're welcome.

  22. Oh I lurve the Gilmore Girls, agree with all your points. They got me through the first few months of being a new mummy to twins.
    When I eventually grow up I want to be just like Lorelai

    ReplyDelete
  23. I am sad to say I've never seen a single episode. I'd probably love it. But do you know who DID like it? My grandma! She only lived long enough to watch the first season. But I remember her endorsing it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've only seen a few episodes, but I love the smell of books and am not a morning person :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've never actually watched this before but your post kind of makes me want to!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've seen a few episodes... But definitely plan on watching it when it comes to Netflix.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Such a good show, Lorelei seems like someone I would be fiends with in real life. I think i need to marathon watch it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've never watched it--but I've found the mom annoying in other things she's been in (Evan Almighty, the Parenthood TV show), so I don't think I could take that much of her!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've wanted to see that. Wonder if it's on Netflix? I sniff books too. (And I just typoed and put boobs. I don't sniff boobs. Unless I think I need a shower.)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nothing smells like books, right! Sadly, my kids don't feel the same way about books ... I don't know where I went wrong.

    PS. Love Gilmore Girls, I mean, what's not to love?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have never seen one, single episode of this show. When was it on? I don't know how I completely missed it. Is it on Netflix?

    ReplyDelete
  32. My kids are still too young to really get it. But my youngest was 2 when it hit Netflix and she would run into the room and sing along with the theme song every time

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes! I want to live in that magical town! Lol! Come on Netflix with the new episodes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. The Gilmore Girls is my daughter and mine favorite show. We love having all day Gilmore Girl days.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Gilmore girls might be one of all my time favorite shows ever. I love the small town charm and all of the characters! Did you like the netflix revival? I wasn't sure how I felt about it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes! I nodded along to all of these points. I included Gilmore Girls in my top 5 binge worthy Netflix series https://digitalmotherhood.com/2018/08/20/5-binge-worthy-shows-to-watch-on-netflix/ I think I might just have to watch it from the start again!!

  37. Love this and I always appreciate having Gilmore girls in the background when I’m doing work. I have to say, I wasn’t 100% a fan of the Netflix.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I arrived to Luke's late, but I LOVE the show now.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love Gilmore Girls I haven't watched the new ones as I don't have Netflix. I watched all the re-runs during uni - timed my seminars so I could be back in time to watch it!

  47. I've never watched that show, but seeing the reasons to watch it, I must check it out. I'm also not married, so I laughed at not being escorted. The book and coffee points also appeal to me! :)

  62. Surprisingly enough, I love the Gilmore girls too. It’s a great show and it’s really too bad it’s nownoff the air. Even the follow up show was great. I think the creator may need to rethink not continuing the show

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love me some Gilmore Girls. One of my favorite things about the show is the relationship between Lorelai and Rory. It was always so special to me.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love reading your post but what struck me most is the your last line about Natalie, I wish that same relationship too for me and my daughter in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Never watched this show but now I am curious to watch. Thanks.
