Jonesin’ For a Fix: Books for TV Addicts — Gilmore Girls Edition

in Fiction by

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finally has a release date and I could not be more excited. I’ve made no secret of my Gilmore Girl love and it’s only getting worse as we get closer to the reboot. How are we possibly going to wait until November 25 to find out what’s going on with Rory, Lorelai, Luke and the gang? I mean, just look at this awesome sneak peak: The new ‘season’ will be broken up into four 90-minute episodes, each one capturing a different season in Stars Hollow. When last we left our favorite small town, Rory had turned down Logan’s wedding proposal, Luke and Lorelai finally got back together, Lane had twins, and everyone else was being…

Battle ‘Ships: Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Bangel vs. Spuffy

in Fiction by

There are really no words for how much Buffy the Vampire Slayer meant to me as a teenager. Or how much it means to me even now, as a full-blown adult. On the surface, Buffy is a campy paranormal fantasy about a blonde vampire slayer who moves to Sunnydale, California, home of a Hellmouth. In reality, the show is an allegory for growing up, using monsters to represent the demons that we face at different points in our adolescence. It’s also quick, smart, heart wrenching, deeply moving, and just plain fun. The day it went off the air was a dark one all around that many fans can attest to. And while creator Joss Whedon has continued the story in…

5 New Opinions After Rewatching Gilmore Girls in My 30s

I first watched Gilmore Girls when it premiered on The WB in 2000. I was 16-years-old. Rory and I happen to be born in the same year, only 6 months apart, and her journey became my journey: traversing high school and boys and colleges and deciding what we both wanted out of the future. I grew up with Gilmore Girls, and it will always be one of those defining television shows in my life. Despite its importance, I never rewatched an episode after the show ended in 2007. Stars Hollow was frozen in time for me, marking the end of high school and my college years. But when I heard that Netflix is bringing back Rory, Lorelai and the gang…

3 Fabulous Teen Shows and 1 Book that are Totally Cheesy

in Fiction by

Is there anything better than a super-cheesy teen show? The answer is obviously no. While “grown up” shows might have drama and romance, they never quite match the intensity —or ridiculousness—that the teens bring. I’ve been watching teen dramas since I was a little girl and decades later I still haven’t grown out of them (I probably never will at this rate). If you adore over-the-top drama, love triangles that never end and enjoy regular random accidents, then you might also be a teen show addict. Join me as I binge on three of my favorites—plus one drama-filled book: One Tree Hill Oh, One Tree Hill. You’re so over the top with your car crashes, teen marriages, pregnancies, more car…
