Even those who have never cracked open a People magazine will appreciate the warmth and wit between its two plucky heroines. If only there was more time with just the two of them.

The good news is that if you're not a Gilmore Girls person and your relatives are eager to watch it over the holidays, there's plenty of that staccato dialogue and family playfulness to entertain and divert you.

Gilmore Girls. It's not a lifestyle; it's a TV show you really liked 10 years ago, now extended on Netflix. We'll take it.

A sweet, sad, sentimental and (above all) joyous return to Stars Hollow.

A Year in the Life won't necessarily convert new viewers-like any revival, it's making a play for a loyal fanbase... But as a salvage attempt after Gilmore Girls' original bittersweet ending, it feels wholly justified.

In era of revivals driven and manipulated by the almighty dollar, A Year in the Life is refreshing in its genuine creation.

The witty banter between all the characters keeps you smiling, with pop culture references having been upgraded to include quips about Marvel movies and Lena Dunham.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life gave fans answers that they've needed for years. There are many things to celebrate about the revival.

A Year in the Life, for better or worse, knows viewers want to see Emily, Lorelai, and Rory interacting with one another.

May 16, 2019 | Full Review…

In spite of all my questions (including the fact that Gilmore Girls doesn't really understand how media and freelancing works), I've really missed Stars Hollow.

The best television finales are often the ones that are controversial, and that rings true more than ever for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

May 16, 2019 | Full Review…

When it's all said and done Gilmore Girls fans are likely to feel as if this is one long-delayed goodbye that was worth the wait.
