Critic Reviews for Gilmore Girls: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

This is still early in the series, good stuff, I'm thinking it's still got quite a way getting better... But I love these characters and all the banter.

The actions and thoughts of the characters are shaped throughout the episodes and, as civilized people we are, there are springs in our head that end up activating. [Full Review in Spanish]

Of all Rory's love interests, Jess is probably the most controversial among fans...But his presence catalyzes one of the tonal shifts that elevates season two above season one.

Pretty much a perfect season of television - with many delightful episodes - that wraps up with a killer cliffhanger.

September 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Gilmore Girls is much bolder, diving right back into the plots it left dangling and showing off its Stars Hollow set with a fun shot of the whole town following Lorelai and Rory as they walk to Luke's diner to break the news of her pending marriage.

Audience Reviews for Gilmore Girls: Season 2


Gilmore Girls delivers more laughs and family drama as the show moves into its second season. When Luke's wayward nephew Jess comes to live with him, Jess soon gets a reputation as a troublemaker and causes a rift between Rory and Dean; meanwhile Lorelai explores the possibility of owning her own inn and helps her father transition from the corporate world to running his own business. Milo Ventimiglia is a good addition to the cast and has great chemistry with Alexis Bledel. Also, a number of the secondary/supporting cast members get explored more. And several interesting guest stars are featured, including the Madchen Amick and Seth MacFarlane. Entertaining and fun, Season 2 of Gilmore Girls continues to grow and develop the series.
