Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

A strong return to the style of the TV show, which ambled pleasantly through a hyper-detailed, well-confectioned world of fantasy, privilege, and delayed emotional gratification.

I've read a lot of entirely deserved criticism of the show's politics, and its primally self-absorbed protagonists. I wouldn't argue with a word of it. But this is a case of having my critical cake and eating it too: the world of Stars Hollow was a safe and comforting place to escape to for a few hours, even though it's a walled garden I'd never actually be invited into.

P.S. Best scene is when Paris high kicks the bathroom door shut.
