If you’re a fan of feel-good comedies and haven’t seen Gilmore Girls yet, stop whatever you’re doing and start tuning in right now! Netflix has had all seven seasons for a long time now and we hope the series never leaves! The beloved series is one of the absolute best shows of all time, following a mother and daughter duo navigating life together.

The series focuses on Lorelai, a single mother who had her child as a teenager but makes a life for herself independent from her parents, along with her daughter Rory, an incredibly smart and driven young lady. Their relationship is no doubt the highlight of the show, including their witty one-liners and all the shenanigans they get into.

Gilmore Girls delves into issues like familial relationships, societal pressures, tradition, education, romance, and coming of age. It’s incredibly relatable even if you’re living a vastly different life than Lorelai and Rory. It’s a show I can watch over and over again and never get sick of.

The four-part revival series, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, is also streaming on Netflix. — Natalie Zamora
