Where the Gilmore Girls lead, we will follow! It’s been nine long years since super mother-daughter duo Lorelai and Rory Gilmore drank all the coffee in Stars Hollow, gorged on junk food and Chinese takeout, fell in and out of love, and dropped every pop culture reference imaginable in their rapid-fire banter. Now the Gilmores are back to drink even more coffee, talk even faster, and charm us more than ever in Netflix’s continuation of the series, which premieres Nov. 25.

In four 90-minute episodes, titled “Winter,” “Spring,” “Summer,” and “Fall,” Lorelai (Lauren Graham), Rory (Alexis Bledel), and grandmother Emily (Kelly Bishop) all face big changes in their lives. To get ready for the revival, we’re highlighting all the things we love about the show with our official “Return to Stars Hollow” coverage, from the wacky supporting characters to the insanely clever dialogue to the girls’ complicated love lives. Check back here every day until Nov. 25 to obsess with us over all things Gilmore.

Call them the Gilmore Guys.

Yahoo TV forced , er, asked nine men (all Gilmore newbies) to watch the beloved series before Netflix streams the revival on Nov. 25. Would the guys understand Lorelai and Rory’s unique relationship? Empathize with their romantic travails? Pick up on their pop-culture-laden banter?

As seen in this Superfan video… uh, sort of?

The guys whiffed at least one pop culture reference (“Who’s FloJo?” one asks) and definitely did not get butterflies from the scene where Lorelai gets a thousand daisies from Max (Scott Cohen).

“In a week, she’s going to have a thousand dead flowers,” one guy remarks. The only thing that captivated them more than the question of what Lorelai would do with the dead daisies is how much they cost. Siri even gets called into action!

Even the romantic scene where Lorelai proposes to Luke (Scott Patterson) doesn’t seem to faze them. The guys just wonder why Luke has no champagne or wine to toast their engagement.

“If you owned a store, wouldn’t you have some alcohol in there somewhere?” one wonders. His friend jokes, “If I had a daycare, I’d have alcohol in there somewhere.”

Gotta love guys watching Gilmore Girls!

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres Nov. 25 on Netflix.
