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.
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.
