I have a confession to make. I love watching Gilmore Girls just a little bit too much. I’ve watched all 7 seasons several times. Watching with friends, watching alone, watching with a bowl of snacks, you name it. I’ve done it.
So when Netflix announced a new season of Gilmore Girls, almost 10 years after its original run, I was excited. To say the least. I’m sure this anticipation was helped along by Netflix’s rather comprehensive (and well done) post-launch marketing campaign.
The big night found me at my friend Shauna’s house with 9 other women and 1 young gentleman (go, Ben!). The lights were low, the coffee pot was brewing, 3 kinds of pizza and 20 unhealthy snacks were scattered across the living room. We were ready.
