This is a nod to episode 10 of season 3 where Emily can't find find vases for the flowers she brought to Lorelei's house in preparation for Trix's (Richard Gilmore's mother) arrival. Instead she places the flowers in a Betty Boop canister. See more »

Overall writing
14 December 2016 | by ronaldhaynesSee all my reviews

First, I loved the series. Watched every episode with my wife and my son. We all loved it and waited with anticipation for the four new episodes to air.

The first episode was terrible. Sure, it was great to see our friends, nearly the entire cast. How great! But while they had the cast, did the producers get some high school kids to write this stuff? The overall writing was drool at best. The dialogue did not have wit at all. The writing was simply incredibly bad.

Episode 2 was so bad that I was indifferent to the characters. I frankly don't care what happens to them in the same way I used to look forward to the story of their lives and their relationships. It was very unrealistic, ridiculous greetings, no affection shown one member to the next and no chemistry between the characters.

They should have left it alone. I am not even up for the next two episodes-forget it. It was a total bust.
