It’s not as simple as attributing the show to “woman power” (Buffy is certainly held up in that respect), as Gilmore Girls was explicitly about women’s lives in a contemporary setting, which made it radical and paved the way for shows like Ugly Betty, The United States of Tara, and Girls. Sadly, its female-centric focus is why it’s often relegated into “women’s television” or “chick shows” by those who haven’t seen it, but programs like Orange is the New Black are continuing to prove that stories about women can be compelling and vital for all audiences, as well as enormously successful.
Fun fact: Jenji Kohan is the executive producer for OITNB, as well as recently departed Weeds. What was her previous job before those shows? She produced 12 episodes of Gilmore’s first season.
You didn’t socialize me properly. You made me a mama’s girl. Why don’t I hate you? Why don’t I want to be away from you? It’s going to be very hard to be Christiane Amanpour broadcasting live from a foxhole in Tehran with my mommy. I guess you’re just gonna have to learn how to operate a camera ‘cause I’ll need you there with me.
