I was a Gilmore Girl virgin

 I didn't watch "Gilmore Girls" when it was originally airing on television. In fact, I was completely naive about it. I really had no idea what it was about, other than a mom and daughter who looked alike. With the release of the new series, I decided to try out the show. All the episodes are on Netflix at the moment, so I started binging. 

Starting out, the show didn't really get me hooked, but something kept me watching.

Four seasons in, I realized why I couldn't stop watching, despite the high school drama class level of acting. "Gilmore Girls" is positive and calming. "Gilmore Girls" doesn't stress me out to watch. There are no cliff endings and no terrible characters. Most tv I watch today features elements that just remind me of the real world. Quite frankly, I'd much rather get lost in the eccentricity of Stars Hollow and the Gilmore's than be reminded of the world I venture into every day. 

'Gilmore Girls' characterizes simpler times

Not to mention, "Gilmore Girls" is funny.

There is a certain wit to the show, especially from good ol' Lorelai. The mother-daughter relationship is one that makes me want to ask my mom to get coffee. Watching the show on Netflix makes me feel like I'm 16 again and without a care in the world. Which is nice, considering I was a 16-year-old with every care in the world. It's nice to imagine a world where the biggest concern is your coffee not being hot enough. I dream about getting coffee and waffles at Luke's Diner with a good book.

I want to live in a world where I can wear sarcastic and goofy t-shirts with a leather jacket and still look as hot as Lorelai Gilmore. 

Netflix don't ruin 'Gilmore Girls,' please

My request for Netflix's revamping of the show is don't ruin it for me. Don't bring adult Rory back into Stars Hollow with adult problems. I simply can not handle the thought of that little world I like to escape in, is no longer problem free and sweet.

Bring Rory back in the same condition you left her. Give me hope that I too can live in the real world and stay naive and unaware. 

So yes, I am a professional adult woman, who loves "Gilmore Girls". Yes, I binged watched four seasons over the course of a few weeks. No shame.
