** The TV show's pilot episode, credits, and finale all end with the same shot: Rory and Luke at Luke's Diner, the camera slowly zooming out. Likewise, the mini-series revival begins and ends with Rory and Lorelai chatting in the town gazebo.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: In "Like Mother, Like Daughter", Lorelai says that the quickest way to get from Stars Hollow to Hartford involves taking I-5. The RealLife Interstate 5 runs from all the way from the Canadian border in Washington State to the Mexican border in California, meaning that it's on the opposite side of the country from Stars Hollow.

* [[FirstGirlWins First Guy Wins]]: Sort of between Dean and Jess. [[spoiler:Rory eventually hooks up with Jess, but since Dean broke it off with her as abruptly as he did, she never really got the chance to get over him. Eventually, Jess suddenly disappears after problems with school, causing Rory to lose her trust in him and miss the reliability she always had with Dean. Because of this, she rejects Jess' advances when he returns, and eventually sleeps with Dean [[YourCheatingHeart despite the latter being married at that point.]] However, after Dean has left his marriage, it doesn't take long before Rory remembers the lack of excitement Dean had eventually failed to offer her, and he ends up PutOnABus to make way for her relationship with Logan.]]

** Played straight for Luke. The show's very first scene is Lorelai at his diner, many boyfriends before they got together; [[spoiler:the revival's last scene is at their wedding]].

* PerpetualPoverty: Rory, despite having no stable job, no credit, and even ''no underwear'', drives a recent-model Prius, always flies back and forth between Stars Hollow and London, and also seems to never worry about finding a place to stay, as she can always stay at Paris's in New York, Lane's, her grandmother's, Logan's in London (he even at one time gives her a key to his family's house in Maine), and at her old home in Stars Hollow.

The show, like many popular properties, suffered its share of ExecutiveMeddling. After the sixth season, contract disputes resulted in the departure of the creators and showrunners, CreatorCouple Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino. (They had begged for a larger writing staff--something the studio was obliged to hire after they were let go.) After the seventh, the show was canceled, without a real ending. On October 19, 2015, {{Netflix}} announced that it has closed a deal with Warner Brothers to release a limited series revival, entitled titled ''Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life''. This six-hour, four-episode mini-series was released on November 25, 2016. Basically every actor who was or had ever been important to the show expressed an interest in returning, though many (particularly Milo Ventimiglia, Jared Padalecki, Liza Weil, Melissa [=McCarthy=] and [[Series/SwitchedAtBirth Vanessa Marano]]) had very limited screentime due to the compressed narrative and their own commitments to other projects. All episodes were written and directed by the Palladinos, and included the specific four words with which Amy had intended to close the original show with.

* WhatTheHellHero: Rory, who was pretty much a paragon of virtue in the original series, spends the entire year casually disregarding and cheating on her boyfriend. Somehow, the disregard is PlayedForLaughs, though fan reaction suggests that [[HumorDissonance the screen writers are the only ones who found it funny]].

** The nasty letter that Emily brings up in joint therapy which she believes Lorelai sent her, but which Lorelai vehemently denies. The letter is made out as TheLastStraw, setting up their distant relationship at the start of the original series, but it had never been mentioned before, wasn't mentioned after that particular therapy session, and we never find out who really wrote it.

** Parallels can also be drawn between Lorelai and Emily, as much as Lorelai would hate it being pointed out. One of the most obvious is in ''A Year In The Life'' where Lorelai is seen to be constantly throwing out chefs for petty reasons in the same way Emily used to fire maids in the original series. Ironically, the revival is when Emily finally finds a maid she likes.
