Netflix wants “Gilmore Girls” to be your ‘mommy and me’ date night
The revival of the Gilmore Girls is finally here, and Netflix wants you to use the new series as a special time with the lady that loves you most. They even made you some e-cards to send out the invitation.
Binging on Netflix is usually a solo affair, late-nights falling asleep to your favorite series only to lose track of which episode you were on, mixed with the occasional night on the couch with a significant other. What you probably don’t think of, is the mother/daughter combination that Netflix says is bringing families a little closer together.
Recently Netflix conducted a survey leading up to the “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” premiere. The survey revealed that more than half of women (53%) wish they spoke to their mother more often, and an amazing 59% of the mother-daughter duos surveyed reported that post-show discussions are the best part of sharing a show together.
In fact, watching together is so important that despite the distance, almost half of moms and daughters (41%) think watching together brings them closer. Even though one third of moms and daughters surveyed live thirty or more minutes apart, over half have gone out of their way to physically watch together on many occasions.
As one of the ultimate mother-daughter pairs, Rory and Lorelai know the benefits of sharing show-inspired inside jokes and witty one-liners. Whether you and mom are die-hard fans or looking for your next binge together, Netflix is letting you send an invite for Date Night with Mom.
No matter what kind of mother-daughter relationship it is, Gilmore has something for you. The survey found that globally, almost equal portions of mother-daughter relationships fall into the following three groups:
(39% of respondents say they’re two peas in a pod, and are BFFs like Rory and Lorela), (31% say they may be polar opposites like Lane and Mrs. Kim, but they just want what’s best for each other) and (30% know it can be complicated like Lorelai and Emily, but they can’t imagine life without each other.)
So using the link above, you can make the Gilmore Girls revival a mother-daughter day.
