Gilmore Girls

Many fans of Gilmore Girls have been counting down the days until they are able to return to Stars Hallow on Netflix and now the wait is over. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is now streaming on Netflix.

The show features many favorite characters returning to the small screen like Lorelai and Rory, large amounts of coffee and multiple pop culture references. Why does this matter to fans of all things comic book related you may be wondering? Early on the series, Girls takes aim at Batman v Superman. Fan and critic reaction to the film was mixed and Girls pokes fun at the film. The conversation goes as follows:

Lorelai: There’s a debate going on whether to take the phone booth out.

Rory: But where would Superman change when he comes to save our town from Ben Affleck?

Lorelai: I made the same excellent point.”

Not to be left out of the pop culture references, Girls also comments on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Lorelai: He’s like a superhero, but his power is you can’t remember him no matter how much time you spend with him. Kind of like every Marvel movie ever.

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is now available on Netflix and stars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson and Kelly Bishop. 

The DCEU will continue with the upcoming Wonder Woman and Batman will be seen in Justice League which hits theatres on November 17, 2017, and stars Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher.

    Well, they were definitely right about marvel movies.

    • SAMURAI36

      Definitely. But I’m sure the Zombies will take issue with it, even though they know it’s true. LOL.

        I’m just waiting for someone to bring up the box office and what critics say. Like I care what some hollywood dropouts think, and box office, well, people these days are a lot more ignorant than they were before. To put it in context, “oh hey a marvel movie came out, lets see, heroes defeat a villain by dancing and holding hands, oh wow praise.”

          Yeah…a girl comedy drama is a much better source for cinematic insight than film critics…

          • Nightwing

            You can’t deny they were right about marvel.

          • Axxell

            No more right than critics and audiences are about the DCCU movies.

    • Carl

      Nah, that line left me scratching my head trying to find the sense in it.

  • Darthmanwe

    Not that these things are not funny-proof, for superhero movies as a concept is silly and highly comedy-prone…

    But Gilmore Girls isn’t the show to do it. If there’s something to be made of, that show needs to look in the damn mirror.

    I’ve been making the same point about Marvel movies since I’M 2

    • Chris W

      You were critiquing film when you were 2?

      • Kelly

        Since IM 2.
        Damn auto correct.
