If you’re reading this story, that means you have made your way through all four installments of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. (Our recaps of “Winter,” “Spring,” “Summer,” and “Fall” are now live.) And if you’ve made it through all four installments of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, you’re probably looking at my headline and thinking, “How the hell did you narrow it down to just 10?!”
