What to watch this weekend: New 'Gilmore Girls,' Christmas TV specials



The turkey has been stuffed and picked to pieces, the kitchen counter is sticky from spilled cranberry sauce and there's enough pumpkin pie leftover for a decadent Black Friday brunch. What better way to spend a long, indulgent weekend than with movies, Christmas specials and new episodes of Gilmore Girls?

Available to stream this weekend: Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, Netflix.

Fans have waited almost 10 years for fresh content on the Gilmore girls Lorelai and Rory. On Friday, Netflix released four 90-minute installments titled "Winter," "Spring," "Summer" and "Fall."

For many fans, like resident Gilmore expert Michelle Stark, returning to Stars Hollow means comfort amongst adored characters.

Check out Michelle's ultimate guide to Gilmore before bingeing the new episodes.
