Before Stars Hollow, Part Two

On to our second gallery of Gilmore Girls luminaries, and as you'll no doubt notice, the names here are decidedly bigger than yesterday's, not that yesterday's were too shabby or anything. Again, I had to make a lot of deep cuts, but it's all good. Off we go... Liza Weil (Paris) Two years before she donned Chilton's … Continue reading Before Stars Hollow, Part Two

Before Stars Hollow, Part One

November seems to be Gilmore Girls Month on Taking Up Room. I don't know why. Maybe it's because November is when their limited series hit Netflix. Anyway, I was watching The Sentinel a few months ago and saw a familiar face pop up. Who was it? I'll tell you all later. Long story short, it occurred to … Continue reading Before Stars Hollow, Part One

Anyone who's spent any time watching Gilmore Girls knows Lorelai and Rory like to eat. A lot. Stuff that would make the rest of us gain weight just … Continue reading Cuisine, Stars Hollow Style

Back To Stars Hollow, Part Two

Warning: Sorry, but you're no safer from spoilers today than you were in Part One. Less so, in fact, since I will be revealing the mysterious final four words Ms. Amy's been holding in her head for years. If you haven't watched A Year In the Life yet, well, you know what to do. When we … Continue reading Back To Stars Hollow, Part Two

Back To Stars Hollow, Part One

Warning: There are spoilers a-plenty here, so if you're planning on watching A Year In the Life and haven't yet, go watch first. Unless you like spoilers, which I totally get. Anyhoo... If you remember my review of the MacGyver redux, you already know my position on Hollywood's reboot craze. Retreads, prequels, sequels, and adaptations make up more … Continue reading Back To Stars Hollow, Part One
