Took awhile to get the announcement, since the news broke on 10/19 (but feels longer than that, somehow), but it has seemed pretty 'sure thing' since people spied the sets being reconstructed and painted...

http://www.eonline.com/news/733498/it-s-official-the-gilmore-girls-revival-miniseries-is-really-happening-and-here-s-the-scoop-on-new-characters

This is #2 on my Ecstatic To See Return list, after Twin Peaks, but above Arrested Development, the Veronica Mars movie, 24 (the first time), X-Files, and the theoretical 24-with-new-characters that has been piloted (Heroes and Full House aren't shows that matter to me...).

Memories of beginning to binge GG... This lovely, small town, sweet and funny almost modern-day equivalent to The Waltons, and we started watching it the same weekend we started our binge of Nip/Tuck, one of the sickest and most depraved shows to ever be on basic cable... It was a great contrast.

Geez, that would be like whiplash!

I've been catching some of the reruns on Up (I think). Season Seven wasn't TERRIBLE upon rewatch.

It wasn't 'TERRIBLE', no, (and I haven't rewatched, just remember at the time), it was just missing that 'spark' of specialness... The dialogue was off (like West Wing without Sorkin, especially at first). The characters behaved similarly (the actors made it all work fine), but I know the plot didn't go where AS-P wanted it to go, and since she was pretty much 'fired'/'removed' from her own show (it was a money thing, if I remember right - wiki says she wanted a short break, additional writers (that's money), and a two-year renewal, which was probably the heaviest straw), it's easy to be unhappy with WB/CW for it... But sure, the guy (David Rosenthal) who inherited the job didn't fuck things up TOO badly... It just wasn't 'his' show. Nobody could have done it 'right', because it wasn't their show, and Author's Voice mattered a LOT here...

This is a great vindication/redemption for AS-P and the cast.

(I know some fans, particularly L/L shippers, were all upset with HER over Season 6, but I wasn't one of them..)

Just talking about this (in TGW thread...) - http://tvline.com/2016/02/01/melissa-mccarthy-gilmore-girls-revival-sookie-cast/

And http://tvline.com/2016/02/01/gilmore-girls-revival-spoilers-amy-sherman-palladino-interview/

They start shooting tomorrow. Huzzah....

Melissa McCarthy is saying nobody has asked her... Amy didn't write anything for her assuming she'd be too busy/unavailable (expensive?), but will write her in if she wants to drop by...

Hope that gets worked out.

Part 2 of the AS-P interview http://tvline.com/2016/02/02/gilmore-girls-spoilers-netflix-revival-rory-dean-jess-logan/

MA >> Who’s coming back, who isn’t…

AS-P >> Deals are not done yet. [Laughs] Even though we’re filming tomorrow. This is why I’m 100 years old.

Damn. Stressful to the extreme...

>> We’ve also had certain storylines we had to [tweak] because, apparently, there are still budgetary restrictions in Hollywood. I don’t understand that. I sort of feel like, “This is the story I want to tell, and somebody should just pay for it.” [Laughs] Apparently, it doesn’t work like that. Very irritating. So, certain storylines — one of which involved one of the boys — had been taken out of our hands. We’re still dealing with who’s going to be in it. We definitely want to see them. And we have storylines planned. I just need someone to tell me they’re going to show up.

Wonder what's going to be lost, that she would have liked to have done...

>> My preference would be they would not be released at once, because I feel like there’s going to be anticipation, and I think the diehard fans would enjoy it more with a little separation.

I wonder if that will happen. Sepinwall's interview with Sarandos was pretty definite - all-at-once IS their firm policy (pretty cool that they'll have Better Call Saul week-to-week this season, though...)

http://tvline.com/2016/02/06/gilmore-girls-revival-liza-weil-paris-returning-cast-netflix/

I don't remember if I told you this before... There are two episodes I haven't seen. Dvr glitch when we were marathoning daily airings on ABC Family, so we relied on recaps, and even after we got the dvds, we didn't go back for that 'closure'... I need to look up which season, even... All I know was the big thing was Lane doing Rory's hair (or was it the other way around...?) - that one, and either the one before or after it... I'll watch sometime before the new ones (also rewatch the finale of 7, I think...)

153 in 7 seasons, 4 mini-movies to come (bet at least a couple of them WILL be bigger than 90 minutes... She's worried about them going long, but I think they'll get some leeway on the running times..)

Spoiler from Ausiello (left out of the interview from the other day) - Bishop says 'Winter' (the first episode) will take place about "four months" after Richard's death. “So by the time you get to [Episode 4 aka ‘Fall’] a whole year will have passed. And I know from my experience, that the first year [after losing a loved one] is awful. But when you hit that first year you start to emerge from it.” In other words, if a new gentleman were to enter Emily’s orbit, it would likely be in “Fall” — which, as bad luck would have it, happens to be the one script Bishop hadn’t gotten around to reading (yet).

Cool. Reunions with all of Rory's guys will happen.

And... Christopher is in.

And Doyle. (Danny Strong is right up there with Melissa McCarthy for the post-GG career arc...)

And Sutton Foster. Cool.

Glad Padalecki will be there.

Wait? Sutton Foster? Am I not remembering her in the original? Or is she a new cast member for this?


Wouldn't have cared if Christopher was MIA.....

No, Foster is the first NEW (er, kinda...) person announced. No word on the role. Ausiello hopes she'd be Michelle-from-Bunheads in a crossover, but that wouldn't work, since she'd be confronted with so many dopplegangers...

I'm glad Padalecki/Ventimiglia/Czuchry are all in. Now does that mean the budget issues AS-P talked about were all RESOLVED (she got the money), or is somebody's role SMALLER than she'd hoped for?...

Christopher - Eh. If we're gonna drop in on all four seasons of a year, I think it would be weird not to see him at least once...

Pitching - Foster plays Richard's surprise daughter from an affair. She's totally believable as Lorelai's sister, and her scenes with Emily would be spectacular, we know...

Mrs. Kim is in... Taylor, Gypsy, Miss Patty, Babette... Then a few I had to look up - Andrew (book store), Colin and Finn (Logan's friends)...

I haven't watched this yet, but I'm glad it's on-line... http://youtu.be/Dh0Tw7qyZ0o EW's 15th anniversary panel from last year...

Ausiello interviews Ventimiglia. Jess was my favorite of Rory's boyfriends, and not just 'cuz the actor's name is Milo... http://tvline.com/2016/02/11/gilmore-girls-milo-ventimiglia-interview-revival-jess/

Ha - How many are you in? 'More than two, less than four'... That narrows it down well.

McCarthy, recently >> They didn't ask. And once this came out, because people were starting to say, 'Oh, you won't do it. You're too big and busy now.' I was like, 'No. No one invited me to the party. I didn't get a single call.' And then after that, it was kind of, 'Well, she'd like to do it, you guys can call us.' I have to call and ask? And now I can't make it happen. I thought it was the strangest thing.

This makes me sad. Gotta be SOMETHING 'bad' between AS-P and McCarthy in the intervening years, but I don't know what or why that would be...

This is cool, though >> http://tvline.com/2016/03/29/gilmore-girls-revival-stacey-oristano-seasons-cast-bunheads/

frankly, I'm okay with it. I'd rather the stories for S8 be organic, and not shoehorn every single Stars Hollows resident ever into the plot, which this sometimes sounds like it's threatening to happen. GG's Stars Hollow always danced on a tightrope of being just a little too cute.

I'm just hoping they're using Sutton Foster well. :P

Within a year's span, I think it's logical enough to see most of these people somehow (especially the SH residents)... I do wonder why we're getting so much of Logan's old supporting cast... Sure hope that doesn't mean he and Rory are together...

It's a 'cutesy' town and show, sure. But I love it...

Even without her, I'm sure we'll get dialogue updating us on where Sookie is... It's just a little bit of a distraction that ALL of the show's main cast (I was going to say 'except one-season guy Digger', but the wiki page even has HIM listed as 'returning') is present EXCEPT for Sookie (and Richard, obviously, but that can't be helped). It's weird.

Ooh! Cool! http://www.playbill.com/article/sutton-foster-to-sing-in-gilmore-girls-musical-by-fun-home-composer

http://www.ew.com/article/2016/04/07/gilmore-girls-revival-melissa-mccarthy-sookie Glad Amy clarified this... the recent McCarthy-on-Howard Stern made it sound a lil' bit like she was offended (though she was careful to say that she wasn't) that she had to ASK to be a part of it...

It's Melissa's 'people'. It's not AS-P, or the show, and it may not be Melissa. I can swallow that.

My friend that does a lot of extra work (and is regularly on Code Black now as a nurse... I never did get around to watching the pilot of that, but I was happy for her that it was renewed for a second season...) is sitting next to Luke at the town meeting in slide 6. I will have to write her on facebook tonight >> OMG, you're in Stars Hollow! Yay! Tell me everything. Wait, never mind. Don't tell me anything. Except... how good does Alexis Bledel smell in person?

Edit - My friend (Justy) hadn't seen the picture yet... She worked on it a couple times ('it's okay'), but never watched the show...

Subtitle isn't the working title 'Seasons', it's 'A Year in the Life'. Okay.

There's a teaser poster, but still no date. 'Soon'.

Just watched the cute little Netflix compilation of 'first kisses'.

I'm still TeamJess, and though I've liked Czuchry for the last seven years as Cary Agos, I still hate Logan Huntzberger a lot. Crossing fingers he's not Rory's main man eight years later...

“This is my time to be rootless.” Finally we have the first footage from Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a series of four 90-minute telepics that spans the winter, spring, summer and fall seasons. Picking up nine years after we last visited Stars Hollow, CT — the original series ran from 2000-06 on the WB and 2006-07 on the CW — it finds each of the women at a crossroads.

Lorelai’s (Lauren Graham) relationship with Luke (Scott Patterson) is at an unnerving standstill, Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it’s even begun, and Emily’s (Kelly Bishop) world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard. Also back for the revisiting are such original series vets as Melissa McCarthy (as Sookie St. James), Keiko Agena (Lane Kim), Yanic Truesdale (Michel Gerard), Liza Weil (Paris Geller), Jared Padalecki (Dead Forester), Milo Ventimiglia (Jess Mariano), Sean Gunn (Kirk Gleason), Chris Elgeman (Jason Stiles) and Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger).

KMI - I just wrote for over an hour and lost the post. Internet out, and unsuccessful at saving the text. Very, very angry/frustrated and I cannot re-type it all.

I liked it.

We'll talk more after you've seen it, but... I can't re-write it all...
