First, Gilmore Girls is a 7 season-long series that started in 2000. It is about a young mum, Lorelai, and her young daughter Rory in their life in Connecticut, navigating through old and new familial, friendship or romantic relationships, school and careers. This mother and daughter duo have an exceptional bond with trust and true friendship. I love this series, it's a great series to watch during Autumn/Winter, and I am about to tell you my reasons.
1. The New England style and appearance with orange and brown leaves on the trees is very the whole show aesthetic, full of nature and the outdoors. This makes the show just so pleasing to watch with that orange hue colour grade/ tint; it feels like you are constantly in Autumn all year long, even in the hotter seasons. The show is very pinteresty and warm it is just a great series to get cosy on the couch with some hot chocolate.
2. Gilmore girls is one of those feel-good shows that put you in a better mood and is just excellent to wind down too, as I mentioned earlier. The show's plot is so sweet, simple and suburban that its whole synopsis is realistic to most people's everyday life with a hint of fantasy. With so many fairytale like aspects that create for an entertaining show. Some examples are ... Lorelai and her work college/friend Sookie opening up their own Inn, Or Rory planning to go to her dream college, having a cute corner local cafe to go to every morning, being a part of the community attending town meetings. It's all just pleasant with relatable aspects, such as experiencing heartbreak in different forms which also allow the viewers to connect with the storylines on a deeper level. I feel like the show is the embodiment of romanticising mundane life and finding ways to make it fun and exciting.
3. Lastly, it has a light academia vibe. This is something I'm deeply into as a concept. The whole Rory being studious, trying to get into Harvard. She wears a uniform and goes to a private school in the first couple of seasons, this series is such a Pinterest mood board and I love it. I love that Rory loves to read and finds passion in it, and I just connect with this show because it reflects my blog and what I like. I associate well with Rory regarding her personality- she does show herself a bit awkward in the beginning. Still, I feel like most of the time she's in her own bubble, and she is just at peace with everything around her and who she is, and when things change, so does she.
If you are into the light/dark academia aesthetic, this show is for you, and it's great to watch for those colder, rainier darker months.
