Gilmore Girls was a comedy-drama that ran for seven seasons starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as the beloved and witty mother-daughter duo of small-town Stars Hollow. Full of “warm fuzzy feelings” and laugh out loud moments, the show explores topics like friendship, family, love, class, disappointment, and ambition. It still has a cult following, with fans spanning generations, and remains on TIME magazine’s 100 greatest TV shows of all-time list. This classic show was so missed that a four-party mini-series revival called “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” was filmed and released in 2016 (though, with mixed reviews).
