A Gilmore Girls fan went from idolizing Rory Gilmore to finding her cringeworthy following the Netflix reboot
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life made Rory's "unexamined privilege" more blatant than the more nuanced portrayal of class differences from the original series, according to Susan Matthews. "A seminal show for many women growing up, the series seemed blind to how terribly entitled and overprivileged Rory Gilmore is and always has been," says Matthews. "And then the reboot did what the original never explicitly did: highlighted Rory’s immature relationship with her privilege and essentially made her the most unlikable character on the show."
