“Summer” A Year in the Life, Episode 3
So, as a dedicated Gilmore Girls fan, I have to say the revival was a little bittersweet for me. I think sometimes it’s better not knowing how things went. It’s better to have in your mind how things might have gone and I always thought season 7 ended very well. And I think time and maturity and actually living an adult life made me see the flaws in the show I hadn’t noticed before. This was my least favorite episode of the revival. It felt like they were putzing around, none of the plots seemed important to me. Like the musical, I feel like they just wanted a reason to include Sutton Foster. I don’t know, then Lorelei and Rory just sitting at the pool shit-talking people while Rory denies how little she lived up to her potential. She takes over the Stars Hollow Gazette and still feels as though the job is beneath her. The best part of this episode is when Michel lets Lorelei know that he has found another job, it was very emotional and wonderful acted by both. This episode has some summer imagery, but kind of drags. It’s not the first summer themed episode I’d watch, that’s for sure.
