It’s been 16 years since everyone’s favorite fast-talking, coffee-loving mother-daughter duo weaved their way into our hearts and minds. Gilmore Girls went off the air in 2007, but has lived on in reruns, gathering a new generation of admirers while maintaining its cult-like following of longtime fans. Later this year, the girls are coming back in the much-anticipated Netflix revival of the series. And Gilmore gurus, including myself, couldn’t be happier.
So why can’t we all get enough of Gilmore Girls?
1. Whip-smart writing and rapid-fire dialogue that’s as exhilarating as a caffeine buzz.
2. Brilliant quips and pop culture references.
The girls possess a worldly knowledge of movies, music, TV, literature, politics and history. It’s fun just trying to keep up with them.
