Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Husband Not Getting Excited Over New Gilmore Girls Episodes

It has been hinted that episodes of Gilmore Girls might be returning to Netflix. But nothing was confirmed.

Until Lauren Graham, who played Lorelei, shared this on her Twitter account:

I shrieked with happiness, causing my cat Max to glare at me, because he was on his 32897th nap of the day and I dared to wake him.

But I couldn't help it. Gilmore Girls is one of my favorite shows. I even did a blog post on why it's my favorite show. I wanted my husband to cheer with me, but when I told him he was like:

Then he continued with, "Isn't that the one with the annoying "la-la-la" music?"

I was offended:

"That's classic!" I hissed. "It makes the show!"

"It makes the show annoying as all shit."

"But you do laugh when it's on," I reminded him.

"Until the 'la-la-las' come on. I also wonder when the girls will stop talking."

"Oy with the poodles already!" I snapped at my husband. "Ruby!" I yelled when I noticed my other cat walk in the room. She flinched. "Ruby, you're excited that Gilmore Girls is returning, right?" I scooped her up, but then she bit me.

I knew Tommy wouldn't care--he's a male teenager and if it doesn't have boobs, isn't food, or isn't on his PS4 or WiiU, he's not interested.

So then I found my daughter and I told her and she was like:

Yay! Proper excitement!

Will you be watching the new Gilmore Girls episodes?


  1. Bahaha, your daughters perfect reaction dance. I can't get past the lalala's either. They just talk too monotone for my attention span as a kid. Maybe I'll watch it once it's back on again (I am older now).

  2. Haha I'm not sure if I will watch but I love seeing everyones excitement. lol.

  3. i have never seen the show. is it really that good? is it similar to something else?

  4. No, but I never watched it to begin with. Are there any superheroes in it? If no, then yeah....noooo. Hahahaha

  5. I've only seen one episode and I haven't ever really gotten into the series. I'm happy for all my GG fan friends though.
    My husband could care less about my shows and that's fine by me. I show the same enthusiasm for Black Mirror or Game of Thrones. He and I have shows together that we both get excited over.

  6. hells yeah!! So, I was totally late to the game with Gilmore Girls. My 13 year old and I started watching it a few months ago. We finally had to get Netflix so we could see all the back episodes because our library copies kept taking too long to come in :)

  7. LOL! Will you still be my friend if I tell you I've never seen the Gilmore Girls? We do have Netflix, so I suppose I could check it out at some point, but we're currently buried in catching up on Game of Thrones.

  8. I feel your pain! Frank rolls his eyes and leaves the room when Survivor comes on....but he always asks, "Did that loud-mouthed rude chick get kicked off?" or "Did they vote the slime-bag out?" (They are closet fans and need to step out and have some dignity)

  9. Yes I will! When we watch the first time Daniel was a baby, about 7-8 months old and he would literally stop his playing or crawling and look at the tv when the theme song came on. It was so cute.

  10. Awww, glad you have someone on the house on your side! I haven't watched the show, but I need to check it out. It sounds right up my alley.

  11. I was seriously so excited when I found out that Gilmore Girls was coming back on! I don't think that my husband cares at all either, but maybe he'll still sit down and watch the new episodes with me, or binge watch the old season!

  12. I need to watch the originals first. I know I would love it!

  13. I only watch to see the pictures.. :} had a crush on Lorelei.

  14. CAN'T WAIT!!! I'm most like the dancing pic for SURE! I think I need to rewatch the last few seasons first... OR the whole show lol

  15. I AM SO SO SO SO SO STOKED! Can't wait for this to come on air.

  16. I'm properly excited over here! Cassidy is not. Ha!

  17. Can't. Wait. May actually have to do a full binge session and watch everything over again in preparation for it!
