    Happy 100th episode to our favorite TV show! The cast celebrated the big ONE OH OH with a giant cake, and Emily and Richard are celebrating by renewing their vows...which means Rory needs to dress up like a character in a '70s musical? We take a closer look at this early Jodie Foster/Scott Baio movie, get the songs stuck in our heads, and muse on whipped cream, hot dogs, and giant cakes along the way.

    I used to love Dark Shadows

    I used to love Dark Shadows

    It's another spooOOooky episode from your favorite Italian vampires(?)! We're biting into a classic soap opera all about vampires, time travel, and how soap operas haven't changed a bit since the '60s. Join us as we look into how this show changed the trajectory of vampire pop culture, compare it to some of the other refs we've covered, and maybe get tricked by the WB's marketing team once again.

    I've seen Oxford Blues

    I've seen Oxford Blues

    Christopher has seen Oxford Blues, but...has anyone else? We are now 2 of the approximately 12 people that have seen it not named Rob Lowe or Christopher Hayden, and we are HERE FOR IT. We try to find any info we can on this forgotten '80s Brat Pack flick, any understanding of its confusing plot, and any reason why this movie is Christopher's best understanding of college life.

    Eve Harrington has arrived (All About Eve)

    Eve Harrington has arrived (All About Eve)

    Eve Harrington has arrived in your earbuds...and at Yale? Rory is hosting a Chilton student Paris is sure we need to watch out for—here's hoping there's less drama than in the epic #GirlSquad featured in All About Eve! We're talking all about this 1950 Best Picture winner, including how its legacy overlaps a lot with another movie we watched in season 3, how this fictional story overlapped with the actors' real lives, and whether Rory and Paris need to be watching out for this up-and-coming high schooler.

    A great Norma Desmond style breakfast (rebroadcast)

    A great Norma Desmond style breakfast (rebroadcast)

    So it's a...rebroadcast? That's right! We're bringing a favorite episode back to the top of your podcast feed because who doesn't need more Norma Desmond in their life?
    We are big—it’s the podcasts that got small! We’re cruising down Sunset Blvd. to figure out what kind of breakfasts Emily Gilmore likes to serve on Saturday mornings. Were the people who made this 1950s movie even more high maintenance than Emily? Was the actress Gloria Swanson just as scary as her character Norma Desmond? And how does this film noir classic tie in with film history and film future? And while we spend awhile on those questions, don’t worry—we get to the most important one of all: Does Norma Desmond even eat breakfast?

    Good thing we ditched that Audi in Marseilles (The Bourne Trilogy)

    Good thing we ditched that Audi in Marseilles (The Bourne Trilogy)

    Lorelai may have ditched the Audi in Marseilles, but Jackson has yet to ditch some needy Stars Hollow residents...and we've yet to ditch our for love the Bourne series! We love the fights with random objects, awesome female characters, and the Matt Damon of it all in this '00s action spy trilogy, but what the hey does it have in common with Gilmore Girls? We investigate the books that inspired the movies, where these flicks rank in the history of spy movies, and whether Jason Bourne even ditched an Audi in Marseilles.

Better than the coffee at Luke’s!

This is such a great concept for a podcast! If you’ve ever wondered what in the world Lorelai and Rory are talking about, this is the podcast for you! Kyla and Taylor are so enthusiastic about each pop culture reference and I learn so much each episode. Great work, ladies!!
