As we know from eight seasons of Gilmore Girls, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore have extremely varied taste in film and television, from watching endless reruns of The Donna Reed Show to Tears and Laughter: The Joan and Melissa Rivers Story, the Gilmore household will truly screen something for everyone.

Fans of the original series would have been particularly delighted to find that despite nine years having passed in Stars Hollow, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life proved that Lorelai's viewing habits had not changed, and in fact the selection was more bountiful than ever thanks to the Lifetime channel and a filled-to-the-brim DVR firmly installed in the Gilmore/Danes residence.

So, given that by now you've probably breezed through all six hours of the #GilmoreGirls revival, why not give yourself some time to dry those tears and recover from the shock of those final four words by choosing one of the many movies found on Lorelai Gilmore's DVR to watch next:
