Earlier today the official trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was released by Netflix. I watched it and was hit by one of the largest waves of nostalgia I’ve ever experienced. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself and tell me how you feel.

I grew up watching episodes of Full House, but aside from having a mild crush on Uncle Jesse, I don’t remember much of the series itself. What happened to Danny’s wife? Exactly how long the show was on? I recall that later I found out that the guy who played Steve, also did the voice of Aladdin. And that somehow Ted Mosby grows up to be Danny Tanner (which is a surprisingly accurate connection I hadn’t thought about until this moment). Even though I didn’t remember any exact story lines, I did remember that it made me laugh and it made me happy to watch, so when Netflix said they were doing a reboot (for lack of a better word) I was skeptical. It seems that a lot of shows and networks are hitting us Millennials hard in the nostalgia bone lately, and it is WORKING.
