My Top Ten Gilmore Girls Episodes!

If you’re new to my blog then I’m about to tell you that Gilmore Girls is my favorite show ever. Rory and Jess are my ultimate ship, I love them both so so much! I first started watching this show when I was 13! I related to the characters so much and fell in love with the town of Stars Hollow. Honestly if it were a real place I’d move there in a heartbeat. I love to re watch it every year in the Fall, it’s just the perfect show in my opinion.

Trying to narrow down to my top ten favorite episodes of my all time favorite show it’s nearly impossible. For the most part this list reflects my favorites of the whole show. I could go on and on about how much I love Gilmore Girls, but I won’t so let’s get into the list! Just a warning if you’ve never seen the show and are planning to watch it or you’ve never seen all the seasons yet, there may be some major spoilers.

I’m also very bias towards Jess and I’m sorry if he’s not yours but I love him with my whole being and a lot of this episodes will feature him.

Okay, I could talk about this show all day, so lets get into my top 10 favorite episodes !


Top Ten Gilmore Girls Episodes

10. Lorelai Graduation Day Season 2 Episode 21

9. There’s the Rub season 2 Episode 16

Lorelai and Emily spend the weekend at the spa, while Rory is left at home. I really like this episode, we don’t get a lot of happy Emily and Lorelai moments. I love the moments at the spa but my favourite is when there at the restaurant. Then there’s Rory she only wants to stay home, do laundry eat Indian food. Her plans are derailed when Paris shows up in a panic over a test. Rory agreed to help her study, when Jess shows up with a ton of food. Seeing Paris he invites himself to stay and eat with them. This has to be one of my favourite moments, I love the three of the together. Things end badly though when Dean shows up to surprise Rory. They get into an argument and Paris saves Rory by telling Dean Jess was there to see her not Rory. Ugh my heart so good!!

8. A-Tisket, A-Tasket Season 2 Episode 13

It’s the Stars Hollow annual Picnic Basket auction, which by the way sounds amazing and I’d totally participate in this kind of event. It sounds like so much fun! Anyways, it was to fun for Dean when Jess outbids him. Rory and dean get into a heated argument when Rory agrees to have lunch with Jess as it’s part of the rules, Dean over reacts and says it’s because Jess likes her that he messed with him. This leads to an even bigger argument between Rory and Lorelai when she accuses Rory of spending to much time with Jess. Rory and Jess have so much more in common than with Dean, and they are so sweet together.

7. “One’s Got Class and the Other One Dyes” season 3, episode 4

Lorelai and Luke get ask to speak at Stars Hollow High career day. Things get a bit off track when the kids start asking about Lorelai being a teen mother. After the presentation some of the other mothers corner her and gives her hell about the topic of discussion. This episode also focuses on Lane, this happens to be my favourite Lane episode. She discovered her mother wants to send her to a religious conservative college, well she rebelled by dying her hair a bright purple. It looked amazing and seriously badass. In a moment of panic though she does it back to black. It’s such a fun episode.

6. The Bracebridge Dinner season 2, episode 10

This episode is centred around a winter themed event, haha see a pattern I love me a good festival. Sookie and Lorelai are palming a bracebridge dinner except they find out that the actors have been snowed in and are stuck in Chicago. Instead of cancelling because they already have all the food prepared, they invite the whole town to come and stay at the inn and participate in the dinner. Rory suggest they also invite Richard and Emily. Dean is visually upset when Jess arrives with Luke, believing that he can’t get away from the guy. Lorelai surprises the guest with a horse drawn sleigh ride. Which is perfect I love the sleigh rides, it’s so beautiful. When it comes to Rory’s turn Dean is with his little sister and Jess takes this opportunity to jump in the sleigh with Rory. I can’t get enough of Jess and Rory moments.

5.You Jump, I Jump, Jack season 5, episode 7

Originally I never liked Logan I thought he was spoiled and I am a Jess shipper so of course I was rooting for him. Upon my many re watches of the show Logan began to grow on me and I give this episode all the credit. Rory receives an envelope from the life and death brigade telling her to be blindfolded and ready to go. Logan and his friends pick her up and the venture off into the woods. I have to say this was a very pleasing aesthetic episode, Logan’s smile included! The next morning she is to put on a ball gown and head out to a field where there is a huge wall set up. On top of it are 4 people in tuxedos and umbrellas. Soon Logan and Rory join them as they jump from the top. This is such a powerful episode, where Rory relishes she needs to take more risks.

4. “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?”  Season 3, episode 7

Lorelai is determined to win the annual 24 dance marathon, she forces Rory into being her partner. During the whole even Rory and Jess can’t stop arguing with each other. Even Jess looking at Rory sets her off, a fact that is not lost on Dean. No longer being able to handle there obvious chemistry Dean breaks up with Rory right there on the dance floor. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it loudly for all of you that hasn’t heard that Dean is the absolute WORST! He could have taken Rory to have a private conversation but no he has to be a jerk and have everybody overhear them. At the end of the episode Rory and Jess finally admit to each other that they have romantic feelings for each other. This is one of those episodes where I love the crazy festival as the setting.

3. Nick & Nora/Sid & Nancy season 2 Episode 5

I really love this episode, this is where we get to meet Jess, Luke’s troubles 17 year old nephew. Luke has agreed to take Jess in and off his sisters hands. Lorelai offers Luke some parenting advice and invited them over for supper, so Jess can meet Rory. Of course the dinner didn’t turn out as planned Jess is moody and quiet, Rory finds him in her room browsing her bookshelves. Jess complains about wanting to leave and grand a beer from the fridge. Later on Jess is accused of stealing money for the bridge repaid. When Luke confronts him words are exchanged and in the heat of the moment Luke pushes Jess in the lake. This is the scene I most think of when I think of this show.

2. A Deep- Fried Korean Thanksgiving -Season 3, Episode 9

When I think of Gilmore Girls it’s always the holidays and festivals that come to mind. In this episode Lorelai and Rory are to attend 4 thanksgiving dinners. Starting with the Kim’, where Lane has gotten her mother to hire Dave to provide the music, Luke’s where they have dinner with him and Jess. With Sookie, where Jackson and his family are deep frying a turkey out in the front yard. Finally they end the night at Emily and Richards, Tory announced that she has applied to Yale. This is such a classic episode, Kirk also gets a cat who ends up scratching him to pieces.

1.The Lorelais’ First Day at Yale season 4, episode 2

After a lot of re watching I have decided that this is my favourite episode. Rory is moving into her dorm room at Yale with Lorelei’s help. I really love this episode as it’s a transition from Rorys teen life into her adult life. It’s her first time living away from home and everything she’s comfortable with. One of her roommates turns out to be Paris per her request, Rory is unsure of how living together will pan out. I absolutely love it, there banter and friends everything! But the gem of the episode is the Yale mattress, Luke unwillingly agrees to let Lorelai use his truck to move Rory but what he didn’t expect was it to returned with an old mattress. The whole exchange is hilarious, I love it.

This list was insanely difficult to pick only ten episodes as I wanted to include so many more. I really hope you enjoyed this post as it took me so long to write and search for the episodes I wanted to include. Let me know in the comments are you Team Jess,Dean or Logan?

Netflix Shows to Binge Watch // Spring 2018

Today I’m here to bring you a post about my top 10 Netflix shows that I’ve been binge watching.Being home with a new baby leaves little time to read, so I’ve been watching a lot of TV. It’s easy to throw on Netflix while feeding Emmy or cleaning up. If I don’t mention your favorite show make sure to leave me a comment as I’m always in search of new shows to try. I’ve narrowed this list down to only 10 because I have tons and I don’t want this post to be huge. These are in no particular order.

1.Jane the Virgin

Jane is a young latinix writer,working as a waitress in a hotel. Her life drastically changes when she goes to the doctor a virgin and accidentally gets artificiality inseminated with her boss’ sperm. I was not expecting to love this show as much as I do. This show is hilarious, the jokes will have you laughing out loud. The dialogue is so fun and the character’s are great.

2.Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is an older favorite of mine, I started watching it while still in high school although I never saw the final season until now. The show follows a group of privileged New York teens. This show is not meant to be taken seriously, Serena is the stereotypical blond party girl, Blair is a queen of the school, Nate the pretty boy, Chuck is a womanizing party boy and Dan the outsider. The actors/actresses are gorgeous and the setting is glamorous. I love this show so much, I will forever ship Blair/Chuck!!

3.Supernatural

I’ve watched this show for 13 years now, its a drama that follows two brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester. They hunt supernatural creatures, the show takes a turn in season 4 and starts to include biblical character’s. Dean will forever be one of my favorite character’s. If you’re new to this show then you’re in for one crazy wild ride.This show has everything; love,friendship,family. But it’s the character’s that will keep you coming back.

4.Shameless

This is probably my favorite show, it has it’s problems but I still love it. This show follows the Gallagher family, Frank is an absent alcoholic father played by William H Macy. Fiona(Emmy Rossum) is the eldest daughter of six children, she holds the family together while dealing with crazy situations that her family goes through. The casting is terrific, I love these character’s so much. Some have left the show and it has gone slightly down hill but I still love this show so much!

5.The Office

This show is pretty new to me, I first watched it 2 years ago. I’m usually not a huge fan of comedy shows, but this one is perfect. It’s filmed as if it were a documentary, about a paper company and it’s employees. Steve carrel plays Micheal Scott the manager of the company, and he’s brilliant!! The character’s are all well developed and funny in their own way. Jim/Pam’s relationship is adorable, and there pranks on Dwight is the highlight of the show. This show is perfect for a self care binge watch.

6.Jessica Jones

It’s been 2 years since I watched season 1, I’m currently in the middle of a re-watch as season 2 was released last week. This show is incredible ! Jessica is a kick-ass PI with super strength, after going through some major trauma’s she tries to rebuild her life while suffering from PTSD. Killgrave (David Tennant) is one of the best villain’s ever. He is a sociopath with the ability to control minds. This show is just so good !

7.Gilmore Girls

What kind of list would this be if I didn’t include Gilmore Girls. I come back to this show every fall,it’s my comfort show. Gilmore Girls is my favorite TV show of all times. The story follows a mother/daughter relationship, in a small town in Connecticut. I love the witty dialog, and the complex relationships of the character’s. I could write pages and pages about these character’s and why I love them so much, but I wont do that right now.You won’t regret watching this show, you will laugh and cry, its just so good.

8.Heartland

A Canadian show about Amy Fleming, a teenage girl who has a special gift for understanding and treating troubled horses. This is a heartwarming, family centered show. I love the characters and love the horses. The setting is in Alberta and it’s a beautiful backdrop for the show.Once you see a few episode’s it will pull you in to keep wanting more.I strongly recommend this show.

9. Outlander

Claire Randall,a combat nurse from 1945 who is transported back in time to 1743 Scotland. I had never read the book’s before watching the show, as of now I’ve read half of book one. The show follows the book pretty closely. I loved their choice of actors to take on the roles of Jamie and Claire,there perfect. The costumes and scenery are gorgeous. The show has the right amount of action to romance.

10. This is Us

The lives of Rebecca, Jack and their three children – Kevin, Kate and Randall – are followed at different points in time. The Rebecca and Jack stories generally take place during the early stage of their marriage. Separate stories for Kevin, Kate and Randall are followed in their adult years. I was hooked right from the first episode.I LOVED IT ! It was wonderfully written,the acting is excellent. This show will continue to break your heart, but you will keep coming back.
