The Internet erupted in a shrill whirl of fangirling when rumors began circulating that Netflix was planning to reboot the much-beloved Gilmore Girls series. We have some questions.
Memorial Day weekend signaled the beginning of Citi Bike season in New York City, and everyone wants to look their best with the breeze blowing through their hair. After months of dark stationary indoor cycling, it's time to get back out there.
Television is our safety, our constant. Much like reality and real relationships, we can't always count on it not to hurt us. Just like our own selves, these characters have flaws.

Let's put aside the more commonly-asked question these days -- that is, should you be Facebook friends with your children -- and get down to a much more basic quandary: Can you be real life friends with them?
Whether you are a die-hard Gilmore Girls devotee or a curious television vagrant searching for a new show, I suggest you give Bunheads a watch and take a vacation to Paradise, CA.
The show isn't quite "Gilmore Girls" plus dancing, but it's pretty close, and that is not a bad thing at all. "Bunheads" comes from "Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, and you'll find a lot of familiar elements here.
