Gilmore Girls is coming to Netflix!

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably heard something this week about the possibility of new Gilmore Girls episodes.  My Facebook feed erupted today with everyone and everything talking about it.

So of course, I had to look into it. And what I found sounds promising for us fans!

According to TV Line and  The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has reportedly closed a deal with Warner Bros. for a limited run revival of Gilmore Girls, which would be penned by creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Dan Palladino. Unlike previous GG seasons, which had the full 22 episodes or so, and unlike other Netflix exclusives that have between 10-12 episodes,  this limited run would only be four 90-minute long episodes, or “mini movies.” While most series seem to come back to brand-new seasons, this would essentially serve as the goodbye it deserved — and a closure to all those wondering what happened to the characters.

I’m back!!

Hello, there!!  Yes, you!!

I know, I know, it’s been so long since we’ve seen each other…but hopefully that’s all about to change!!  Yes, you heard it right, I plan to update this blog much more often.  Let’s be totally honest, it probably won’t be as often as I’d like, but it’ll definitely be much more of then than I’m currently doing it!!

So what to talk about??  So much has happened!! What’s new in the world of pop culture that I love and want to discuss??

Oh, the obsession…

So to continue on my Supernatural obsession (yes, it’s totally turned into an obsession), I found this video that I wanted to share with you all.  It’s done incredibly well.  It’s all scenes from the 5th season, which, in my opinion, is the best season.  It was an incredibly crazy emotional roller coaster – there were so many hilarious ups and heartbreaking downs, I actually felt my heart tear a little with every new episode.  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever laughed and cried so much, and felt happiness and sadness to such extremes, from any other TV show I’ve watched.  Ever.  And it had the best ending to a season I’ve ever seen.  If they’d ended the show there, I honestly would have felt it was a good place to end, even if it was technically a cliffhanger.  In case you’re interested, watch this one and then this one.  There’s about ten seconds missing between those scenes, but all you miss is Castiel healing Dean.  And honestly, the Chuck part of the ending just added to the awesomeness, I think.

Anyways, this is almost like a trailer for the season, and hopefully you love it as much as I did.  Or, if you don’t watch the show, it’ll get you interested.

Of course, it helps that the song is “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons.  Awesome song!!

And yes, my obsessions has gotten pretty bad.  I think I’m on my fourth viewing of the series (as in, start to finish), and I just can’t seem to stop!!  I’ve also started reading fan fiction and I’m always on the Supernatural Reddit.  I know there’s also a big Tumblr thing for it, but I dislike Tumblr and so haven’t ventured into that yet.

I’ll be writing fan fiction soon too, you’ll see.  Seriously, obsessed.  I’ve also found charms I totally want to buy.  I’ve discovered Etsy (which was a bad, bad thing) and I’ve got like 15 Supernatural-related things I want to buy.  Also, I now want to get an anti-possession tattoo.  Honestly, I’m gonna end up spending a lot of money.  And while the crazy obsessiveness may eventually fade, I know I’ll still love this show years and years down the line.

Anywyas, this video is pretty good too.  It’s got scenes from all the seasons except the current one.  The song used is “Demons,” also by Imagine Dragons.

I’m not gonna lie, that video makes me want to make everyone watch this show, because it reminds me of just how good it is.

I’ll probably write about Supernatural again, because, you know, obsessed.  So give it a watch so you know what I’m talking about, okay?  And if you already watch it, watch it again!!

The One About “Friends”

Friends+castSo recently, I’ve rediscovered Friends.  Now, that’s not to say that I’d forgotten about it, or that I hadn’t been a fan in the first place.  it’s just that so much time had passed and so many new shows had come around that I’d sort of let it gather dust in the corner.

Well, a few weeks ago I decided I was in the mood for some comedy (I know, weird, right??) and I dusted them off and started watching them.

ustv_friends_cast_shotAnd man, had I forgotten how awesome they are or what??  It’s making me happy to revisit the happy (and not so happy) moments of my favourite dysfunctional-and-crazy-yet-loving-and-loyal group of friends.

In case you spent the decade the show was on TV living under a rock, it follows the lives of 20-somethings Ross Geller (David Schwimmer), Monica Geller (Coureney Cox), Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston), Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), and Joey Tribiani (Matt LeBlanc) as they try to make a life for themselves in New York City.

The show lasted for ten season, from 1994 to 2004, and had viewership in the 20 millions each week.

Friends-friends-69087_1024_768On the show, the friends had their ups, their downs, their good relationships, their bad ones.  They were happy and successful.  They had shitty jobs, and were unemployed, and at times had no idea what they were doing with their life.  It’s weird, because I couldn’t really identify with them when the show was on (I was 10 in 1994), but I can now.  Now I can see why it was so funny, or so sad, or so happy, or so heartbreaking.

I can totally understand why it’s hard to let them go.  But yesterday and today have been crazy with rumours and stories about a new season of friends coming in 2014.  Star Media, an outlet I’ve never heard of, seems to have “confirmed” with NBC there will be a new season.  Since I immediately called bullshit, I decided to do some research.

Sadly, that research was not only super easy (way to be gullible, Internet!!) but also sad: there will be no reunion.  In fact, Marta Kauffman, the series creator, has confirmed to E! Online that not only is there no reunion planned, there will never be a reunion.  Never.

It’s sad that it’s not coming back, but honestly, I’d rather have it end the way it did than have to remember a badly done movie where they all try to get the same chemistry they had ten years ago.  It would never work.

But it doesn’t mean I’ll ever stop re-watching them!!  And you shouldn’t either.

Welcome to the world of Supernatural!

So I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before or not, but I don’t normally watch too much TV.  While some people I know are hooked on ten shows at a time, I really only have two or three, and most are shortened seasons (like 12 or 13 episodes) and I can’t obsess for more than three months at a time.  But now I’m here now to tell you all about my new obsession: Supernatural.

Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam and Dean Winchester.

Now, I’m clearly very late to the Supernatural bandwagon.  It’s on the 8th season!!  According to Wikipedia‘s Supernatural page, they’ve just aired the 168th episode.  So yes, I was very, very behind.

I’ve been meaning to watch it for years.  I’ve had the first season sitting in my room for years, and my brother had the next three in his room, just waiting for me to watch them.  But I always found something else, something better, something different.  And to be honest, the idea of having to catch up on that many episodes was daunting enough to make me not want to.

And then one day,  I was bored.  So I flipped through Netflix, and I decided, “Hey, why not?” and watched the first episode.

And I was hooked.  I caught up in about two weeks or so.  I watched them almost non-stop.
