Critic Reviews for Gilmore Girls Season 6

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Gilmore Girls, in spite of its undercurrent of tension and occasional eruptions of tears and anger, has always been a quickstep of spunk and wry laughs. The premiere gushes both, but there's a bitter sadness permeating [Lauren] Graham's performance.

Mar 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Lauren Graham should just get a bizillion post-show Emmys.

Sep 19, 2018 | Full Review…

At the risk of repeating myself, "Gilmore Girls" is one of the best things on TV. Still.

Mar 9, 2020 | Full Review…

Some may feel the "splitting up" of the Gilmore Girls hurt the show, but may find it more agreeable when the season is taken in as a whole.

Mar 9, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Gilmore Girls is taking a gratifying run at young-adult confusion through Rory's missteps. Smart girls flounder too.
