The Ultimate Gilmore Girls Watch Party Schedule.
By. Emery W.
Where you lead, I will follow…. STRAIGHT TO NETFLIX.
Anyone else out there a massive Gilmore Girls fan? If you’re not, you should be and soon! Netflix is releasing a four-episode special of the popular CW show entitled, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on November 25th. In preparation for such a momentous occasion, I’ve decided to re-watch the entire series in 34 days. That’s right; 7 season, 153 episodes, in 34 days.
If you’re like me, and have a full-time job, semi-regular workout routine, and somewhat of a social life, this is a rigorous binge-watching challenge, but totally worth the time. The best part about it is, it’s all on Netflix so I can watch while I’m on the treadmill.
Of course, you don’t have to follow this exact schedule. This happens to be fixed to my regular functioning hours, but if you have more time, more power to you to watch. Plus if you’re an insomniac, you can watch through the night, and pull a classic GG move, and load up on coffee the next day. It’s your choice.
*Each episode is approximately 45 minutes long (give or take) which is where my time line came from.
Beginning Friday, October 21st:
- 8 PM – 11 PM Season 1, Episodes 1-4
Saturday, October 22nd:
- 10 AM – 11:30 AM; Episodes 5 and 6
- 8 PM – 11 PM: Episodes 7-10
Sunday, October 23rd:
- 9 AM – 12 PM; Episodes 11-14
- 3 PM – 4:30 PM; Episodes 15 and 16
For the following six weeks, the schedule will go as follows:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday; 7 PM – 10 PM (4 episodes)
Wednesday*; 6:45 PM – 9 PM (3 episodes)
Friday; 8 PM – 11PM (4 episodes)
Saturday; 10 AM – 11:30 AM/2 PM – 5 PM (6 episodes)
Sunday; 9 AM – 12 PM/3 PM – 4:30 PM (6 episodes)
*Wednesdays are carved out this way so that I can still have my American Horror Story fix.
You see? There’s plenty of time for lunch breaks, Sunday football, and a weekend social life if you so choose to have one. If you follow this schedule, the last episode of season seven would be watched on Thursday, November 24th. One day before the new episodes are released.
Sound complicated? Don’t worry. Like I said, it’s not a must that this schedule be followed to a T. Watch at your own pace. But I do highly suggest watching the series because I’ve got a feeling, these new episodes are going to be great.
