Oh, Stars Hollow, how I’ve missed you!
Gilmore Girls was the show that taught me that being a fast-talking know-it-all who is addicted to coffee could actually be adorable. (In real life, I’m sure my friends would disagree.) And luckily enough for me, Netflix is bringing back the show for a four-episode event on November 25th.

The trailer doesn’t offer up much but it doesn’t have to because unlike so many shows that rely on action and cliffhangers, the allure of Gilmore Girls is in the characters and their mundane day-to-day shenanigans. Some of the best moments are watching Lorelai trying finagle one more cup of coffee from Luke at his diner. It’s a show that is comfortable for so many people.
Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons the CW/WB starting in 2000. It chronicled the life of single mother Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) and her, shall we say, unconventional relationship with 16-year-old daughter, Rory (Alexis Bledel). And if you’ve never watched it before, you have until November 25th to get caught up on seven years worth of coffee jokes. Hop to it.
