    Season 1 was the best one
  • Apr 16, 2021
    Absolutely love this show! My favourite TV show! The characters are so loveable and I love that I can watch this and feel entertained no matter what mood I'm in. It is definitely a great feel-good show, but it is neither dull nor boring. Definitely would recommend it!
  • Mar 10, 2021

  • Dec 31, 2020
    Hands down the best show of all time!!!
  • Nov 08, 2020
    Probably the best season but still awful. Awful acting, unlikeable main characters, painful to watch most of the time
  • Oct 09, 2020
    'So it's a tv show? It's a lifestyle It's a religion'
  • Sep 17, 2020
    My fiancee is addicted to this show. It's so bad that I can't even listen to it in the background. The most Monotone acting of all time.
  • Apr 26, 2020
    It's a good thing. It's good. It's good. It's actually really good. Shut up
  • Mar 14, 2020
    I think I was supposed to love this more than I do. It's fine. Maybe I waited too long and it's a bit dated now? I'm not sure why it's not catnip for me like for many in the same demographic. Oh well. It's fine, it's good. Plenty more TV to watch.
  • Mar 11, 2020
    Love love love this season of Gilmore Girls! Quick-paced, witty, charming, hilarious, and strangely comforting, this is a must see!
