The Only Fall Show You Need to Watch

There are a good amount of fall shows out there. But only one really gives you that warm feeling of autumn, and- coming from someone who’s on their third time watching it, still does not get old.

Gilmore Girls follows the story of mother and daughter, Rory and Lorelai Gilmore, figuring out life with the help of those around them. Lorelai, who had Rory at sixteen, is still growing up herself while trying to raise a daughter of her own. The setting is placed in the small town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut, where everyone knows their neighbors and random (and borderline ridiculous) events are always occurring because it’s the only thing to do in town. The show starts off in early fall, with Rory Gilmore in her first year of high school.

It sounds cheesy, vague, and simple, and it might be, but all that somehow makes it unique.

Unlike some shows that try too hard to dramatize a story making it feel forced, this show at its core is the simple daily life of a mother and daughter. It gives you a glimpse into what daily life is like for someone else, not just the extreme highs or lows.

The episodes also do not drastically skip over long periods, and the holidays are consistent throughout the show. Because of its easy-going nature, it is a calming series to watch. It is the type you can turn on after a stressful day, knowing it is not going to add to it. Throughout the academic year, this is necessary considering how busy and complicated schedules can get.

The show also does not follow one singular storyline. Although there are main characters, to whom many of the episodes revolve around, we’re introduced to various side characters, the problems they face, and how the people around them make them easier to manage. This contributes to the incredible job the show does at making you feel like you know the characters personally, almost like many feel the show Friends does as well.

The effortless, flowing chit-chat between the characters, along with the chemistry between the cast is something I think all directors hope for, and few get so lucky as to have. At many times, there’s so much talk it can be hard to follow along, but that only adds to why it is so much fun to rewatch the show. You realize jokes you missed, or suddenly understand a reference that made no sense the first time around.

It’s not just the characters’ crazy addiction to coffee or the chilly setting in Connecticut that gives off that Fall feeling, but that cheesy warmness you get watching a show about people who’d do anything for each other because they genuinely appreciate being around them.
