Absolutely love

Love Gilmore Girls and this podcast. I can’t get past how annoyed I get though when playing listener feedback and Megan says Sookies name. It really bothers me for some reason. Thanks for all the work you’ve done on this podcast.

Yikes

It’s really hard listening to a podcast about a tv show by hosts who don’t understand how TV works. They really said “it’s unrealistic they overheard them talking when they were 3 rows back” like do you not understand set staging??

“Why are there so many family guy references” because the show runner worked on that show?? “Oh we never look at who wrote it” then maybe be quiet about things you didn’t take 3 extra seconds to understand.

The contact victim blaming of Lorelai is disgusting, ultimately I stopped listening because of it. Man, what a disappointment

My Favorite Podcast + Gilmore Girls Origin Story

I came across this podcast this past summer and have been hooked ever since! I love how each episode is analyzed with such depth and I am so glad every episode is so long and full of details and feedback. I wish I had heard of this podcast years ago so that I could have written in with my own Gilmore Girls origin story. But just in case Cordia and Celeste read their reviews, here it goes...

I started watching Gilmore Girls with my mom on DVD when I was only 8 years old. Despite being so young, I immediately identified with Rory, especially because I was an only child of a single mom, and I had just started at a new school. Unfortunately, Rory wasn’t always the best role model. There’s that early episode in season 1 where Rory blows up and yells at her entire class, especially at Tristan who calls her “Mary.” I was called “New Girl” at my school, and one day I stood up in class and screamed at my classmates just like Rory. I got a very low score in “works well with others” that school year!

Growing up, I always compared my life and achievements to Rory’s at the same age. She inspired me to be a dedicated student, and to aspire to go to a good college. I was also introverted and bookish and a writer and best friends with my mom. When I came home from a school trip once, my mom met me at Bradley International Airport with “Hartford Connecticut” shirts, keychains, and other things that Lorelai bought for Rory. When I turned 16, my mom came into my room and told me the story of the day I was born, just like Lorelai did for Rory. When I started my senior year, my mom said it was my last first day of high school. She also gave me a list of all of the money I had cost her through the years.

Watching Gilmore Girls is like looking into a mirror for me and my mom, and I never know whether we love Gilmore Girls because we are close, or if we are close because of Gilmore Girls. Now I’m living far away from home but I still watch Gilmore Girls regularly, and it is such a treat to listen to a podcast that speaks my language. Thank you Cordia and Celeste for the countless hours you put into creating this immersive, thoughtful, thoroughly enjoyable podcast!
