I am a Netflix Stream Team member, and as such I receive complimentary streaming services. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
As you are probably aware, Netflix is releasing a follow-up of the much-loved show Gilmore Girls on November 25th, the day after Thanksgiving, which is the coziest day of the year, in my opinion. Perfect timing!
But are you one of the people who has never watched Gilmore Girls? No need to be embarrassed. I’ll let you in on a little secret: this time last year I’d never watched it, either. I remembered it vaguely from my college days, and at that time I just thought all that ultra-witty banter between a mother and daughter who were much more like besties than family to be weird and unrealistic.
But earlier this year I decided to give it another try, and I just loved it! It was funny, sweet, and even rough in some spots. But I’m so glad I gave it a second chance. If you have never watched it or if you dismissed it, you’ve got time to give it another go. I have some suggestions for you to get you ready for the new release. And if you are a total Gilmore Gal, I’ve even got some suggestions for you!
- Watch or Re-watch Seasons 1-7
Has it been more than a year since you watched some episodes? Take the time to tune back in to some of your favorite episodes. If you starting from scratch, go ahead and get started! Unless you can take the next week off from work for this endeavor, you won’t be able to get through all 7 seasons in time, but honestly, that’s the great thing about Netflix Instant. The new show will be there when you are ready! 🙂

3. Gather Your Fellow Gilmore Girls
It would be a travesty to watch the new episodes all by yourself, so be sure to gather together your fellow fans and watch together. I LOVE these great ideas for how to throw the perfect viewing party!
4. Prepare Some Festive Food and Drink
A Gilmore Girls viewing is just not right if there aren’t yummy foods and drinks involved, and usually in copious amounts! Here are some great suggestions for themed drinks and the food you must have at hand.
5. Extra Credit: Get Your Read On
