Gilmore Girls Revival Is A Wrinkly Quilt Of Quick-Talking Nostalgia — With An Ending Fans Always Deserved! Read The Review Roundup!
It's been almost a full decade since Lorelai and Rory Gilmore executed their signature rapid-fire repartee while discussing love, life and happiness — and thankfully, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life fills that void in all its small-town glory.
At least, that's what most of the critics had to say in the first round of reviews for the highly-anticipated Netflix revival series!
Fans of the original WB dramedy have to wait until November 25 to see Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel return to Stars Hollow, but the lucky reviewers who got a first look at the four-part miniseries say it's well worth the wait!
While most critics agree the cast seamlessly fit back into their hyper-caffeinated characters, there was also a consensus that the 90-minute episodes felt a bit drawn out and muddled down by extensive cameos.
Like most TV reboots, Gilmore Girls also felt a little stuck in the past — and while the pop-culture references were updated to include Kardashians and man-buns, viewers felt some storylines were forced, sacrificing character development for fan-service.
But on the whole, critics seemed to agree: the Girls are back in town, and fans will NOT be disappointed!
