Everything You Need to Know About the 'Gilmore Girls' First Season
I've just finished my binge of Gilmore Girls. I watched it as a little girl for the first four years of its show life. After a couple of suggestive things happened, my parents thought it had gotten a bit mature for my young age, so it was dropped from my TV rotation.
I was so super stoked when it came on Netflix. (I must admit; I didn't start watching as soon as it came on, because I was finishing another show up.) I started it about three weeks ago, and I finished it just today. I got to relive my childhood memories and experience new emotions as well.
For those of you who haven't see it yet, I thought I'd give an in-depth summary, especially if the talk of a new movie is true, and you just want to get caught up!
Lorelei Gilmore grew up in Hartford, Conn., in the country club life. We're talking cotillions and coming out parties. Her parents, Richard and Emily, raised her to wear frou-frou dresses and to stand up straight - but they more or less suffocated her without their knowing it.
Lorelei got pregnant at the age of 16. She refused to marry Christopher, the father of the baby, and Christopher refused a job at her father's firm. His parents took him away from her.
A year after Rory was born, Lorelei took her and ran away from home. She ended up in a sleepy little town by the name of Stars Hollow. She found someone willing to take her in and give her a maid job at the Independence Inn.
Fast forward 15 years later, and she's running the inn on her own. Rory has just gotten into this prestigious high school that will take her all the way to Harvard, but this high school is just out of Lorelei's budget. The only choice she sees is to borrow money from her parents - on the condition that the two return into their lives and join weekly dinners every Friday at 7 p.m. sharp.
But really, all you need to know is that I'm Rory. All she did was read, and she wanted to be a writer, too!
