New Yorker and new doctor Zoe Hart accepts an offer from a stranger, Dr. Harley Wilkes, to work in his medical practice in Bluebell, Alabama. She arrives to find he has died and left half the practice to her in his will.
I admit I would have been dissatisfied if I had stopped 30 minutes into the first episode. But somewhere along the line (like having coffee with someone I haven't seen in 10 years) I was pulled in and was moved by the earnest connection of these women trying to be, and be celebrated for who they are and what matters to them. I particularly liked being reminded, again, that there are actually 3 Gilmore Girls. Emily's transformation is every bit as groundbreaking and heartfelt as Lorelei and Rory's. Reconnected me to what mattered about the show to begin with. I honestly feel issues with first episode was getting familiar with rhythms of new format. 8 out of 10 overall. Individually: ep 1=7; ep 2=8; ep 3=9; ep 4=10...worth 6 hours...like an old friend. Would be happy to see more.
