When worlds collide
If you were a fan of Gilmore Girls, you should definitely, one hundred percent be watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, the brains behind the beloved Gilmore Girls, it tells the story of the brilliant Midge Maisel, who when life as she knows it shatters, turns everything around to pursue her a career as a comedian. Set in 1950s New York, it’s utterly charming and endlessly funny.
And if you’re a Gilmore Girls fan who isn’t sold, with the brains of Sherman-Palladino behind it The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel share more than a show runner, there has also been a Gilmore Girls reference that will delight fans.
In Gilmore Girls Emily Gilmore is speaking to her daughter Lorelai, about the wedding she had wanted to plan for her. In the season two episode ‘Dead Uncles and Vegetables’ Emily tells Lorelai “Yours was going to be a Russian winter theme” going on to say there would have been “snow-white roses” and “snow everywhere”, adding that “it would have been beautiful”.
And eagle-eyed fans have noticed that there is a bit of a similarity between Emily Gilmore’s proposed wedding for Lorelai, and Midge Maisel’s wedding in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
When explaining her wedding, Midge revealed it had “a Russian winter wonderland theme” which included tons of snow (“Everything was white, and there were trees painted like they were covered with snow”), adding, “It was really beautiful.”
Coincidence? We think not.
