Here is how UP describes the original Gilmore Girls TV show:
Set in a storybook Connecticut town populated with an eclectic mix of everyday folks and lovable lunatics, “Gilmore Girls” is a humorous multigenerational series about friendship, family and the ties that bind. Thirtysomething Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) has made her share of mistakes in life, but she has been doing her best to see that her college-bound daughter — and best friend in the world — Rory (Alexis Bledel), doesn’t follow in her footsteps.
That may be easier said than done, considering that the two share the same interests, the same intellect, the same coffee addiction and the same eyes. Rory is more serious than Lorelai, but there are tendencies, especially in the love department, that clearly indicate she is her mother’s daughter.
UP airs the original Gilmore Girls TV series, in three-episode blocks at 5:00pm on weekdays. The complete Gilmore Girls TV series is also available to stream on Netflix.
