A GIL­MORE EN­CORE!

In Touch (USA) - - Slipups -

Catch up for cof­fee — and lots of talk! — with old friends by watch­ing this wel­come re­vival (four new 90-minute episodes, each span­ning one sea­son: Win­ter, Spring, Sum­mer, Fall), which finds mom Lore­lai Gil­more (Lau­ren Gra­ham) and daugh­ter Rory (Alexis Bledel) deal­ing with the death of Lore­lai’s dad, Richard. “I’ve been mar­ried 50 years, half of my life is gone!” ex­claims Lore­lai’s mom, Emily, whose idea of mourn­ing in­volves a wall-sized por­trait of her late hus­band and even ( gasp!) wear­ing jeans and a T-shirt. Mean­while, Lore­lai thinks she’s still happy with Luke (Scott Pat­ter­son), while Rory is in a ca­reer cri­sis. “I have no job, I have no credit, I have no un­der­wear…i coulda been a con­tenda!” she con­fesses to Luke’s nephew (and her ex!) Jess (Milo Ven­timiglia). But it’s not all angst: There’s also plenty of pas­tries, pop cul­ture ref­er­ences and the re­turn of many fan fa­vorites (in­clud­ing Melissa Mccarthy as Sookie). It’s ob­vi­ous that the Gil­more Girls need each other more than ever — and we need them, too!

Jess has a sit-down with Luke at the cor­ner diner.
