The Gilmore Girls Netflix revival called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life comes out this Friday. And I am peeing my pants.
In approximately 3 days, 4 hours and 29 minutes from the time I am writing this, we will get to revisit Stars Hallow. We will get to see Luke, Lorelai, Rory, Taylor Doose, the Dragonfly Inn, the gazebo, Miss Patty’s Dance School, and the Gilmore House. We get to see Rory as I always wanted to see her: adult and struggling to find herself, just as I am also trying to do. We get to see Lorelai (hopefully) settled with Luke. We will try to find solid ground in a world without Richard Gilmore. Now it’s only 3 days, 4 hours and 27 minutes.
But whatever, I’m not that excited.
As I may be watching these episodes with some of my family members this weekend- and in an attempt to stem the almost nausea-inducing excitement and anticipation I’ve been feeling lately- I decided to get a little interactive with this. Why not make this monumental event into a game? Bingo!
I created 5 different bingo cards just for the Gilmore Girls Netflix revival. Each card is filled with some well-known Gilmore-isms that I anticipate to see in the four 90-minute episodes based off the last 7 seasons, as well as some new things that I hope to see. Feel free to use the Luke’s logo as a free space. Play against your friends, or yourself. Swap cards after each episode, and see who wins the most. Loser has to make the new pot of coffee.
Or, if you’re alone and coffee isn’t your style, turn the game into something a little more adult. Have yourself a Shirley Temple Black or a martini with a twist and drink every time you cross off an item. And give yourself bonus points if you understood those references too. Because if all goes well, you may forget to shout “Bingo!” when you fill your card.
If you do download the cards and play, make sure to tag me (@iamkelskels) and use the hashtag #CKGilmoreGirlsBingo so I can follow along! I’ll definitely be playing too and would love the competition.
Happy binge-watching! Are you excited for the Gilmore Girls Netflix revival? Let me know if you’re #TeamJess or #TeamLogon. Because let’s be real, nobody should be #TeamDean.
