Whether you loved or hated Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, there is one thing we can all agree on: the lack of opening credits is a travesty.
Carole King's "Where You Lead" is as synonymous with the WB-turned-CW-turned-Netflix hit as coffee and talking fast, which is why fans were heartbroken to discover creator Amy Sherman-Palladino decided not to update Gilmore Girl's iconic title credits for the revival. Sure, the theme song played over the final credits of "Fall," but it just wasn't the same without heartwarming shots of the Gilmore girls and their friends sipping coffee, hanging out in Lorelai's (Lauren Graham) jeep or strolling around Stars Hollow.
Thankfully, dedicated Gilmore fan rose tyler on YouTube fixed the intro, giving us a near-perfect new title sequence that makes us feel as though it's 2000 again. Sadly, it's still missing the comforting sepia tone coloring that always made the opening credits feel as though it was filtered through the lens of fall. But if A Year in the Life taught us anything, it's that nothing will ever be exactly as we imagined, and that's OK. A little change can be good sometimes.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is currently streaming on Netflix.
