    Nothing else comes close, amiright?

    Hey people of the internet, it's the 20th anniversary of the first time we ever got to meet the Gilmore girls, and I'm sorry, but I just can't let you forget that glorious fact!

    Gilmore Girls first landed on US screens on The WB on 5th October 2000. It pulled in 4.6 million viewers and became a sleeper hit with American audiences. It didn't make it to the UK until 2003, when the first three seasons started showing on Nickelodeon for some reason.

    It's easy to see why this show is such a cult phenomenon. Fans will say Gilmore Girls is an institution with its quirky characters, cosy New England setting, and deeply individual sense of humour. Honestly, it's the best TV show of all time!

    1. All of the amazing cultural references.

    2. The fashion.

    3. All of the references to coffee and food.

    4. The fast-paced dialogue.
