ALUR | Gilmore Girls: The Risks in Reviving Television
By ANITA ALUR
For this week, I’ve decided to take a break from my typical music-centric columning to discuss two topics that are of great importance to me: Gilmore Girls and Netflix. One of the hot subjects of this week has been the alleged return of the 2000-2007 dramedy Gilmore Girls via Netflix. If you’ve watched the show, you’ll know that the final season was lackluster at best. Due to the ‘07 writer’s strike, the highly acclaimed writer and show creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino, did not supervise its production and the season lacked in plot development and wit. The season ended on an ambiguous note, with Rory embarking on a cross-country campaign, and Lorelai reconciling with Luke without making any concrete decisions on their future.
