On vacation with husband Jim and friends this month, Alexis showed off her sinful body at one of Sin City's hottest venues.Taking in a Pitbull and Neyo concert, she flaunted her bikini body while getting ready to get her groove on.In Stars Hollow, she meets Mia, the owner of the Independence Inn.She begs Mia to hire her though she has no experience of any kind.The early sections of the first episode dwell heavily on cameos from returning characters and spend a lot of time recapturing the vibe in the small Connecticut town of Stars Hollow, where grumpy diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) sighs at freeloaders who want his wifi password, and where the sweetly wayward Kirk (Sean Gunn) is excited about yet another preposterous money-making scheme.But for those who want a retreat from reality in order to spend time in this beautiful little Brigadoon of a town, where a scheme to install a new sewer system is one of the most pressing issues on the local agenda, these “Gilmore Girls” episodes will feel like a warm blanket on a cold winter night.
Alexis posts a lot of her pictures from various photo shoots, mainly in bikini and lingerie. We tend to think, that as soon as she turns 18, we can expect some major leaps in her career.
The good news is, despite some structural wobbles, its singular combination of screwball patter, self-aware whimsy and barbed WASP drama remains more or less intact, and 16 years after the show debuted on the WB, “Gilmore Girls” continues to owe a great deal of its success to Lauren Graham.
She slips back into creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s rat-a-tat dialogue without missing a beat, and her nuanced performance as Lorelai Gilmore supplies the show’s beating heart.
Breathe a sigh of relief: The “Gilmore Girls” we knew and loved is back, and at its best, it’s the equivalent of a platter of powdered donuts and extra-crispy french fries.
Maybe it’s a little too much at times — and rapid consumption of the four 90-minute episodes Netflix commissioned is not advised — but when it relies on the notable strengths of its core ensemble, it is television at its most warm and reassuring.
