When describing Davis’s farmer’s market—with its troubadours and familiar faces and its pedal-powered carousel—I’ve been known to make reference to Gilmore Girls and its wholesome but oddball-filled setting of Star’s Hollow. I worried that most of the people I’m talking to now have no idea what I mean.
But alas, it appears, I’m in good company. Gilmore Girls is going to start streaming on Netflix tomorrow (all seven seasons), and there’s an awful lot of celebrating going on. New York Magazine‘s culture blog, “Vulture,” has been publishing article after article about the show (one of my favorite’s has been a debate about Rory’s and Lorelei’s boyfriends). Buzz Feed has a round-up of pie charts for the show’s fans. Entertainment Weekly‘s “Popwatch” gives a list of this month’s Netflix releases as “10 other exciting releases” “beyond ‘Gilmore Girls.’” And even the New York Times is asking “Why are we so obsessed” with the show?
Did you watch the show the first time around? Were/Are you a fan? Will you watch it now?
P.S. Ben or Noel? (From Felicity, that other show I watched in college.)
