Critic Reviews for Gilmore Girls Season 3

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

How quickly this show can switch from charming banter to achingly authentic emotion without seeming remotely corny!

Top Critic

"Gilmore Girls," which always walks the line between art and artifice, began its third season this week with a high-speed dive off Annoyance Cliff.

Mar 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Gilmore Girls has grown up along with Rory, and as she becomes deeper, braver, and more complex, the show follows suit.

Audience Reviews for Gilmore Girls: Season 3

  • Mar 11, 2020
    In my humble opinion, this is the best season of Gilmore Girls! Quick-paced, witty, charming, hilarious, and strangely comforting, this is a must see!
  • Nov 29, 2016
    Love the cast of characters!
  • Oct 16, 2014
    I've been re-watching this show now that it's on Netflix, and I have a new appreciation for it. It's a little twee for my taste, which can be grating, but that's far outweighed by the genius depiction of the complexity of human relationships. It's the only show I can think of that illustrates in long story arcs how it's possible to love and hate the same person, either alternately or at the same time, and that this is pretty normal and we're capable of adapting to change. The Paris/Rory dynamic is a good example, as is Lorelai + Emily's relationship. Five stars for not over-simplifying!
