Gilmore Girls: 5 Things Wrong With Luke & Lorelai’s Relationship (& 5 We Envied)

Gilmore Girls ran from 2000 to 2007, and Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life dropped on Netflix in 2016. This series focuses on Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter, Rory Gilmore, as they deal with love, loss, and life. That being said, a big part of the series is romance, and one of the most notable romances exists between Lorelai and Luke Danes.

Evel Knievel Series Starring Milo Ventimiglia Set for USA Network

Joseph Baxter Sep 6, 2019

This is Us star Milo Ventimiglia will star in USA Network limited series Evel, showcasing the life of legendary daredevil Evel Knievel.

The gravity-abused life of iconic stuntman Evel Knievel (1938-2007) will be chronicled by USA Network, which has ordered a limited series, titled Evel.

Milo Ventimiglia, who currently stars on NBC television drama This is Us (which manifests under the same corporate umbrella as the cable channel), will play the eponymous daredevil on USA Network’s Evel, which he’ll also executive produce. The series will focus on a specific period in Knievel’s career, namely the preparatory build-up before his famously-failed jump across Snake River Canyon – a heavily hyped event that took place west of Idaho’s Shoshone Falls, on September 8, 1974, at 3:36 p.m. Mdt.

The limited series comes after a 2015 spate of contemplated-but-nixed Evel Knievel biographical projects from heavies like Martin Scorsese and Darren Aronofsky.

Welp, Even Scott Patterson Wanted More From Luke and Lorelai's Wedding on Gilmore Girls

  • Popsugar
If Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life makes its way back to Netflix for a second season, Scott Patterson has only one special request for the new set of episodes: a wedding for Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and his character, Luke. The actor recently caught up with Us Weekly and spoke about why he thinks fans of the series deserve to see a big celebration taking place for the couple.

"Well, I'll tell you one thing, [there] better be a big, fat wedding," he said. "I think that's what we should give [fans] . . . I think now it's time to give them, after 20 years, what they want." After building up their romance throughout Gilmore Girls' entire seven-season run, Lorelai and Luke finally got married on the show's 2016 revival. The wedding, though, turned out to be a bit lackluster for some fans, as the couple ended up eloping in lieu of having a big celebration.

Gilmore Girls: Every Season Finale, Ranked

It would have been virtually impossible to predict the legacy that a series like Gilmore Girls would go on to have. When the series first aired from 2000 to 2007 across both The WB and The CW, it was a critically beloved cult hit that generated very little in terms of audience numbers or awards enthusiasm. The feel good series followed the lives of three generations of the central Gilmore family, as they navigated life and love and work and school and all things in between.

20 Things Lorelai And Rory Did Between Gilmore Girls And A Year In The Life

When Gilmore Girls first appeared in 2000 it was a breath of fresh air. Featuring a fast-talking mother-daughter duo who live in a postcard-perfect town full of quirky citizens, the show quickly earned legions of passionate fans. For seven seasons, the lives and loves of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore captivated viewers.

The show was created and ushered to the screen by Amy Sherman-Palladino and for six seasons her imprint was on every frame. Then in season 7, she and her husband, executive producer Dan Palladino, exited after a contract dispute. This left Gilmore Girls’ final season in the hands of others and fans never got the ending Sherman-Palladino said she had planned since the beginning. Dissatisfied by the show’s final season, fans clamored for more. While revivals, remakes, and sequels abound these days, this is exactly the kind of situation they're meant for.
