TV Review: Gilmore Girls

¬†Review: Gilmore Girls ‚Äî “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?” Confession time: I’m a woman in my mid-twenties who loves teen dramas. Not just shows from when I was a teenager but current shows, as well as those from the ’90’s. When I was a teenager we only had a handful of TV channels so it’s only now that I’ve discovered many shows. Thanks to Netflix, one of those shows is Gilmore Girls. The great thing about this show is that in every episode I can relate to at least one character. Lorelai, Rory, Lane, Paris and Sookie all have relatable...

This summer, I re-watched the film for the first time in over 15 years and there were so many details that I didn’t notice as a child. The first thing I realised was that Rose was only 17 years of age. I had always assumed that she was in her twenties. The second thing I noticed was that she was a girl ahead of her time. Sure she was engaged to be married...
