I seriously cannot wait and I've been counting down the days by re-watching every season of Gilmore Girls on Netflix (luckily they're all on there because my DVDs are starting to get a little worn) for the umpteenth time.
I wouldn't say I'm addicted to Gilmore Girls (OK, maybe I am) ...but I have seen every episode more times than I can count. Somewhere in college (which was five years ago now at this point), I started watching every episode again for the 20th time and just stopped keeping track.
I realize that most of you (unlike me) probably have lives (and sleep more than I do), so it might not be possible to watch all 153 episodes. So instead, here are the top 5 (or 6 in season one's case) episodes from every season that I think are must watches.
— Ep. 1 Pilot
— Ep. 2 The Lorelais’ First Day at Chilton
— Ep. 9 Rory’s Dance
— Ep. 15 Christopher Returns
— Ep. 16 Star-Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers
— Ep. 21 Love, Daisies and Troubadours
— Ep. 1 Sadie, Sadie
— Ep. 4 The Road Trip to Harvard
— Ep. 5 Nick & Nora/Sid & Nancy
— Ep. 13 A-Tisket, A-Tasket
— Ep. 22 I Can’t Get Started
— Ep. 1 Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days
— Ep. 7 They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?
— Ep. 9 A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving
— Ep. 13 Dear Emily and Richard
— Ep. 22 Those Are Strings, Pinocchio
— Ep. 2 The Lorelais’ First Day at Yale
— Ep. 18 Tick, Tick, Tick, Boom!

Congratulations, you've officially been Gilmored!
It was hard to pare it down to just five episodes. Obviously there are other episodes that may be funnier, wittier, or more charming, but I think these 36 episodes are essential to understanding the plot and essence of Gilmore Girls.
What do you think? Agree with the list? Any you'd add or take off? Tell me in the comments below! Happy binge-watching!
