Well people, the Gilmore Girls revival has come and gone and us super fans have watched it at least once, if not twice. Hey, we’re crazy and proud of it. We just love this show and were so happy to be back in Stars Hollow this weekend. We had it all: a snowy town, Lorelai and Rory’s banter, Rory’s three boyfriends, celebrity cameos and Luke and Lorelai still in love. It was a truly great time and we are even a little bit sad that we no longer have these four 90 minute episodes to look forward to. That’s how it always goes in life, right? We get super excited about something like a TV show or a movie or a vacation, then the thing happens, and it’s over, and we have to go back to our regular old lives. Now that it’s all said and done, it’s time to think carefully about what this revival really means to us. Did we get everything that we wanted? While it’s pretty much impossible to please everyone, we have to admit that there were a few things that we wanted to be included. Here are 15 things that are missing from the new Gilmore Girls.
15. Rory And Lorelai Eating At Luke’s
Okay, so we did see Rory and Lorelai at Luke’s. In Winter, they sit there and Rory orders take-out. Rory also goes into the diner to get some take-out coffee. But come on, that’s just not good enough for us fans. We’ve waited this long and now we don’t even get to see our fave girls eating junk food at Luke’s? It’s a bit crazy to think that this didn’t happen. We wanted to see Lorelai and Rory order pancakes and muffins and all kinds of comfort food and hang out there for a while. We also wanted to see them order cheeseburgers and fries and have Luke argue that they hadn’t eaten a salad or vegetables in forever like we have seen before. While we are okay that this didn’t happen because it’s really not the biggest deal in the world, we do have to say that we are pretty sad that we didn’t get at least one scene like this.
14. Movie Night With Junk Food
Okay, let’s just get this out of the way: we love watching Rory and Lorelai eating junk food. We especially love watching them eating junk food when watching a movie. So really, we’re talking about movie night, which is pretty much a Gilmore tradition. Remember when Lorelai invited Dean over and he crashed their movie night? He couldn’t believe that they a.) ate so much junk food and that b.) talked through the entire movie. Hey, that’s just how the Gilmores do things. We’re kind of shocked that we didn’t see at least one movie night. Maybe because now that Luke and Lorelai are living together, Rory doesn’t feel comfortable with movie night anymore? That’s pretty tragic though when we stop and think about it. We just wish that we could have seen a funny scene with Lorelai and Rory watching a movie, chowing down on some candy and potato chips, and Luke being totally confused about this whole deal.
