She also loves the townies. I wasn't sure she'd like the show but I'm glad we've been able to get through it. There were days we would watch more than half the season because she couldn't wait to see what happened. The revival has been a bit slower for her. I had to spoil some things to make her want to keep watching but she still thinks Luke and Lorelai are cute together and loves Kirk.
Wow. You got through the series very quick!

My mother was never a fan of any of Rory's boyfriends, so, I didn't have to fight her for anyone. She did ship Lorelai with Christopher () which got me frustrated but what can ya do? She loves the idea of the nuclear family. It's funny how you can get such a different reaction from an older or younger generation watching the same material.
A lot of sleepless nights were now trying to get back. My mom loves Paris too and loves Dean and liked Jess but couldn't really stand Logan because he reminded her of Christopher who she didn't think much of. I wish I could get my dad to watch GG but it's far from the kind of show he's into.

My mum liked the show, but they talked too fast for her, so she stopped somewhere during S1. My dad saw some episodes, but he just watched because he thought Lauren Graham was sexy...yeah nice to know dad :/
She didn't like how Rory turned out.

They talk too fast for both of us. I remembered some stuff but had the transcript on my phone so we didn't have to constantly rewind lol

Ya never know with Dads, I didn't think mine would like it but he ended up loving it. I did have to include subtitles because my dad is hard of hearing and misses a lot of that fast dialogue. My parents didn't like Dean cheating and being adulterous although they did love him in the earlier seasons. They didn't care for Jess at all because he had no respect for Rory or Rory's loved ones and Logan was a player and too much of a party boy type. They felt weird about the revival because of Rory and it ending on a more fretful tone but they enjoyed the Lorelai/Emily SL and were okay with L&L finally getting hitched (although they thought it was weird they weren't married by then).

Yeah, my parents were never into watching it. But my aunt and uncle loved it. I don't know if they ever got around to watching the revival though.

You should ask them. Some friends of our family who used to be our neighbors watched the show and loved it. I'm not sure if they ever saw the revival? I should ask her.

I'll have to ask when I see them. I did tell my aunt what happened though. Cause she wanted to know.

My parents always commented on how fast the girls would talk.

Yeah, my poor, deaf father couldn't keep up, even with subtitles.

Has anyone had a different reaction each time they rewatch the show? I'm curious because my reaction now has changed a LOT since my initial viewing.

How is it different?

I know I pick up on different things during rewatches sometimes.

It’s different because initially I was only really interested in Lorelai and her SL and Rory was simply a supporting character for me. Now, watching it, I’m seeing much more nuance to all the characters and Rory especially.

I see, Jen. I've always been interested in Rory's SL too.
