Fans have waited the best part of a decade for the return of Gilmore Girls. Now they have it, and they don’t really like it.
My #GilmoreGirls thoughts:
-Rory is the absolute worst
-Jess deserved more
-Emily is queen
-Lorelai's hair remains perfect
-Yasss Petal ?

Note how the greatest praise here is for hair and a micropig.
There are big issues, like how Rory became condescending, feckless and awful sometime in her 10-year journalism career, that quite serious fat shaming, and how Paul, a guy who remembers his girlfriend’s mother’s boyfriend’s love of antique wrenches, is sidelined in favour of cheating posho Logan. Those crazy gals!
But there’s still room to sweat the small stuff. Largely, how the Gilmore Girls propmaster couldn’t afford any real coffee to put in the empty coffee cups.

The coffee cups are just so empty on Gilmore Girls.

It’s not as though they’ve never had any practice. It’s quite heavily emphasized as a ‘kooky’ character trait.

So why can’t they hold their cups properly?
They must have forgotten during the nine year break.
It's been like a decade and the cast of Gilmore Girls still can't pretend to have liquid in their cups.

Actors carrying around obviously empty coffee cups are one of my pet peeves. I'm looking at you, #GilmoreGirls.

16 years, 7 seasons, & a Netflix special & the Gilmore girls can't hold a coffee cup like it actually has liquid in it#GilmoreGirlsRevival

Why don't they put some liquid in the coffee cups on #GilmoreGirls. They look empty. I'm so tired, guys. I'm so tired.

And how does Lorelai’s pink jacket stay so spotless when she sloshes around her coffee LIKE THERE’S NOTHING IN THE CUP.

Caffeine addiction is so much more adorable when you’re drinking air.
