    There's a lot to be frustrated over, but a reunion is always nice.
  • Aug 19, 2022
    It was okay. I wouldn't have missed anything if I didn't watch it. Some of the characters turned out be quite unlikeable (Rory). Also Lauren shouldn't have messed with her face, it was distracting.

    Very rarely does a reboot work - not only did AYITL work but it soared! I was so excited when this got announced but also a little dubious. What if the show didn't have that same homely feel that I grew to love? What if the cast didn't have the same energy in the characters that I adore? I needn't have worried - coming back to Stars Hollow felt the same as going back to my real life home town. The cast did a fantastic job of bringing their characters back, it's almost as if they never left. Please bring back AYITL for a season two!!! Please? Pretty please.

    Personal I really liked the first season and hope there will be more seasons to come. :)
  • Jan 12, 2022
    I really disliked this something about the characters seemed off and it wasn't as good as the original. I felt Roy went in such a backwards direction you can have a career suffer but seriously don't make your lead so unlikeable!

    While it was nice to return to Star's Hollow and all the characters we know and love, A Year In the Life just shows how true it is that you can never (or should never) go back. The changes feel nonsensical (Rory), or nonexistent (Lorelai), or incomplete (Emily). Characters and scenes are flatter and more bizarre, almost like a caricaturized version of the original series. The foils to the whimsical lives of Rory and Lorelai - Richard and Emily, Michel, Paris, the realities of finances, are all swept away, leaving a show that is wildly out of control and leaving the viewer wondering - why?
  • Nov 08, 2021
    I really had a hard time with this there were some really good parts but Lauren Graham looks horrible. She must've got some kind of facelift I just didn't like her in this at all. She looked So deformed that I had a hard time liking any scenes with her in it she annoyed me to death. I loved the seven seasons of the Gilmore girls but in 2016 I really didn't like it.
  • May 29, 2021
    I'm a huge fan of this show but this miniseries wasn't really necessary. They turned Rory into a complete loser. The ending was a bit meh, wonder if they ever plan to tell us what happens with Rory, her unborn baby, etc.
  • May 10, 2021
    I'm an absolute Gilmore Girls Stan. Sadly This four episode series absolutely ruined the nice ending we got before. The main and most side characters have been ruined and do not act the way we got to know them all those years. Deceiving expectations isn't a bad thing when executed well, but this isn't the case here. Do not watch, unless you want to end the series on a bad note.

    I watched Gilmore Girls consistently for over 8 months since March 2020. I loved the show but having back away from it - I noticed there were a few episodes where I now think the writers made Rory out to be a brat, Lorelai to be a victim and the Emily to be a bully. There were peeks where Emily seem to regret her actions toward Lorelai but she behaved spitefully most of the time. I thought Rory and Lorelai were supposed to be best friends with an unbreakable mother-daughter bond and a deep, wise connection, but they frequently disagreed on major life issues. Lorelai was supposed to be an independent, strong woman, but she often crumpled around her mum and men. Luke was supposed to be Lorelai's White Knight, but he wimped out at the last minute, it just did not mesh with his previous "always there for you" character throughout the show, even when broken up he continued to be there for her. Rory went through her childish, then teenaged teething phases, but she was supposed to turn out fine. She did everything with a "can do" attitude, she got great grades and was a Yale valedictorian! In real life a Yale grad would have a string of jobs to choose from, but not in GG's reel life, nope Rory got turned down for every job before the show ended but she did go off to pursue her career with great fanfare. A Year in the Life really destroyed any chance she had at a good life. She turned out to be a bigger brat and failure for all her successes as a child. She slept around while pursuing dead end jobs and ended up pregnant. And Lorelai had to go on a fake hike to have Luke finally take notice of her need to be married. But the saddest "Gilmore Girl" in this story was the bully - Emily, she turned to servants, she use to despise, for comfort. I got the impression the writers really hated those Gilmore Girls :)
