It has been eight years since the final episode of Gilmore Girls aired on national TV. The show reigned strong for seven seasons. The mother/daughter duo with their quirky, too much coffee drinking attitudes was a huge hit for many fans alike. The characters were relatable to a lot of fans too. However, a lot of fans of the series hold a lot of hate towards the final season and especially the series finale. There are many different opinions about the final season, some bad and even some good ones.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the finale for Gilmore Girls was done right. The entire article explains the final episode in pretty good detail from scene to scene. Reading the article, I felt that there was still a lack of emotion from the author. Her opinion was clearly stated, but at the same time it fell flat in personal emotion. Comparing the Entertainment Weekly article to another article posted on a site called "Welcome to Ladyville", the difference in emotion is astounding. The author to the Ladyville article series finale of Gilmore Girls left the author going “That’s it?” The author claims that the finale sucked, that it was poorly done because the shows original creators, Daniel Palladino and Amy Sherman-Palladino, left the series before the final season was even aired on national television.
Below is a clip of the series finale if you are familiar with the series. You can make your judgment on the authenticity of the actual final scene.
