The Gilmore Girls

I grew up watching The Gilmore Girls. It's the series that has stayed in my heart all these years. The fact that people are still hoping for a possible movie seven years after the series ended is a testament to the power of the show.

Because of my love for Lorelai and Rory, every year, at around this time, I treat myself to a marathon. A pilgrimage back to Stars Hollow if you will. I stand with Rory through all her boyfriends (Logan is still my favorite), share Lorelai's heartbreak when Luke "needed more time," and still cry when Rory makes this speech at her Chilton graduation:

I have all sorts of feels for this series...even for the seventh season, which is painful to watch, let me tell you. How one season can ruin the rest is beyond me. What were the writers thinking? Anyway, I won't gripe. That's been done, especially in this lovely blog post about the ending. And when I think about it, I agree that Taylor may have a huge penis.

I really do wish Amy Sherman-Palladino considers redoing the ending. The CW or was it The WB at the time really dropped the ball by letting her go. There's this really awesome article you should read that has a theory about Rory and Jess.

If you look at it, of all of Rory's boyfriends in the show, Jess had the most pivotal role. When she dropped out of Yale, who convinced her to come back? Jess. This is how I see the movie. It would be Rory's wedding. She's a famous journalist now. The whole movie is about the "day of" where she's preparing to walk down the aisle with lots of flashbacks that gives us a glimpse into what's been happening with everyone in our beloved Stars Hollow. Luke and Lorelai will definitely be married and will have a kid because we need Sid/Nancy slash Leopold/Lobe. Then we'll see that Lorelai's relationship with her parents is so much better. Sookie St. James will earn a Michelin Star (or several).

Anyway, you get what I mean...I hope. And throughout the movie we don't know who the groom is until Rory walks down the aisle where we get a shot of Jess, who's become a best selling author--because how could he not?

That's me being sentimental. I love this series so much that it hurts not to see the characters getting the endings they deserve. Here's to hoping a movie will get made soon. For now, it's yearly marathons in September.
