Everybody’s talking about… #Gilmore Girls

Sound the Stars Hollow klaxon! Netflix has confirmed that all episodes of Gilmore Girls will be available from October (the deal is for US Netflix only at the moment, but we know that’s never stopped you before).

The Washington Post has articulated why this is such a big deal, describing the show as “brilliant” and one which “never really got the recognition – or farewell – it deserved”.

Gilmore Girls is like a heartfelt hug from your telly, focusing on the lives of Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory. It’s witty, smart and well worth a watch.
