We’ve waited so long for the return of Lorelei (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel), and Emily (Kelly Bishop) Gilmore - and now we’ve got it! Thanks to Netflix, we were treated to the four-part mini-series event, “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” with some surprising results.

If you were a fan of any part of “Gilmore Girls,” you’re going to enjoy this mini-series event. It is very crowd-pleasing and even has some twists that’ll boggle your Stars Hallow-obsessed minds.

And yes, Sookie (Melissa McCarthy) is still one of the most lovable characters of all time.

Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelei are living together, but not married. Rory is all over the place as a writer and journalist, but still hasn’t truly found herself, which is a situation rife with drama, plot, and silliness.

The boys of “Gilmore Girls”

Fans of the popular series spend most of their time arguing over which boyfriend of Rory’s would be the best for her.

The obvious answer is Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), and then you could move on to Logan (Matt Czuchry). Don’t even think about talking about Dean (Jared Padalecki) while reading this review.

All joking aside, the love interests of Rory make their own mark on her new life in the four-part miniseries. Logan plays the biggest role. He and Rory are living out a romantic affair throughout the mini-series, providing fans and haters of Logan alike a great treat.

Sure, he’s engaged to some French heiress, but he truly loves Rory. Unfortunately, we all know she’s not going to settle for mistress status.

Jess plays another big role in Rory’s life, even though he’s only featured in two episodes for mere minutes. Obviously, there’s still something there. How can two people so perfectly in-tune with each other not feel that pull, right? Anyway, Jess is the one to push Rory forward in her life, explaining that she should write a book about her relationship and life with her mother.

Boom! We love you, Jess!

Oh, and Dean runs into Rory at the grocery store in the final episode. Yes, Dean was always so sweet to her and was very, very tall, but as this miniseries shows, he’s Rory’s past.

The drama between the “Gilmore Girls”

Lorelei and Emily are still at each other’s throats most of the time, but Emily is going through a huge life change after the loss of her husband, the “lion,” Richard Gilmore (previously portrayed by Edward Herrmann, who passed away recently).

A gigantic blow-out between mother and daughter takes place, but what else would you expect from this series?

Plus, Lorelei isn’t too thrilled that Rory wants to write a book based around their lives. Yes, we even get a fight between this pair, which wasn’t rare in the original series. They eventually make up, but only at the end of the miniseries. Speaking of the ending - did you see those “last four words” coming?

“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” was good, you guys.

Nothing’s perfect - especially in the mind of “Gilmore Girls” fans - but this four-part series was sure close.
