News of the Gilmore Girls revival spread like wildfire. That is, when my friend texted me about the news, I literally thought there had been a major fire or earthquake in the state of California. "Are you okay," was all it said. It took me a minute to register that he'd been talking about the reboot of my favorite television series and not a natural disaster.
Yes, Gilmore Girls is coming back, in the form of four 90-minute "mini-movies" on Netflix, according to reports from longtime Gilmore-insider Michael Ausiello. Initial fan reactions ranged from emotional to cautiously optimistic, but the consensus was overwhelmingly positive.
