Netflix’s newly released ‘Gilmore Girls Revival’ subtitled ‘A Year In The Life‘ went down a storm with the public upon release, trending worldwide on Twitter.
The heavily hyped revival of ‘Gilmore Girls’ featured 4 feature length 90 minute episodes, with each episode set during and named after one season of the titular year. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life set a clear promise to give Lorelai and Rory a befitting ending after its controversial seventh season.
The opening episode of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival definitely isn’t bashful with its popular culture reverence, and it takes both DC Films and Marvel Studios to bat. In episode one “Winter,” both Lorelai and Rory reference to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Lorelai is seen speaking to her daughter Rory about a phone booth in town, and she says, “There’s a debate going on whether to take the phone booth out.”
Not missing a beat, Rory jokes, “But where would Superman change when he comes to save our town from Ben Affleck?” Lorelai laughs and says she made the “same excellent point” about the plans.
Towards the end of the episode, Lorelai returns to the world of superheroes when she turns to the hit out at the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The mother is talking about someone who she finds utterly forgettable, and she says “He’s like a superhero, but his power is you can’t remember him no matter how much time you spend with him. Kind of like every Marvel movie ever.”
The show even references HBO’s Game of Thrones when it casually mentions Khaleesi and Whitewalkers.
