2:20 am
couldn't have anticipated we'd get a chance to actually do it, but, no, we would talk over the years and see each other. >> see each other at events, too. right? >> yeah. but still a lot of catching up to do. i mean, ten years. >> kelly, did you worry, it was such a magical time. did you think to yourself, wow, if we try to reboot this and it doesn't go over well, should have just left well enough alone? >> no. i'd been wanting to do this, i had been bri >> the original founder. >> we should do a movie. i was so jealous of "sex and the city." they got a movie! we want a movie. >> they got two actually. >> well, we've got four chapters. >> there you go. >> so, no, i was just so excited about it. >> and did get to finish it with amy. it always felt like we'd been left in midair, a little bit. >> yeah. >> a little weird. the way people watch tv now and
2:21 am
it, you can sit down and watch the whole megillah. what do you think the way they're watching now? >> the creator of the series so wanted netflix to release them one at a time, because we all come from a time where you look forward to the next one. >> yes. can't wait. >> and sort of digest it, the first one. >> right. >> but this leaves it up to fans. so you can kind of do it the way you'd like to do it. >> this is an impatient civilization. we want everything instantaneously. is. sort of started with the jet age. i'm a little older than you are. and then -- >> you look better. so you win. >> thank you. no. we are, our attention span is very short. >> yeah. >> but at the same time, i've noticed that dealing with younger people, they grasp very quickly. the things that took us like, oh, yeah. i see what you mean. oh, yeah. i got it. and then they're moving on so --
2:22 am
and is captivating people again today? what is it about it? >> oh, i think now it's particularly comforting, given the times we live in, but it always had this very comforting feel. the town that we live in is just a place where everyone supports each other and is kind. and helps each other out. that's something i think is just timeless, and you can always go back to it. >> those kind of communities still exist today. >> of course. >> when you live on the east coast, kind of hard to remember that exists in most of the country! >> yeah. >> and usually you need tension. like a horrible guy or somebody who everybody hates. that wasn't part of the drill of your show at all? >> it never was. our show was always about sparkly dialogue and people having the amount of joy. the loss of ed gave the story a little more weight this time, because we're all dealing with that, that loss in our own ways, and so i think it was perfect
2:23 am
it needed something a little more cinematic, and -- and something with a little more weight to it. >> when this ends, at the end of these episodes, if you binge watch and see the very end, is there a period on it or is there -- >> she wants the question. >> there is an ellipses. >> ellipses. >> dot, dot, dot. >> in the business 40 years what is that? oh, the dot, dot, dot, dot. oh, okay. >> we learned something new today. one question from our fans? we had a bunch of fans who wanted to ask a question. hear one? oh, they're on the card? oh. we're reading it. glasses. greg from sacramento wants to know if you had to play another character on the show, who would you want to play? >> oh, a different character. >> if you had to switch characters. >> emily. >> i mean -- >> emily. >> really? both of you? >> i couldn't do it. i'm too, like, ooh -- ooh!
2:24 am
>> yeah. >> i think we each kind of have a part that we're very right for, hard to switch. >> one more question, ray from arkansas asks, do you get to keep the outfits you wear? >> no. we give them back. >> do you want to keep them? >> some of them. lorelai and i wore some wacky stuff in this last one. >> thanks for coming in. >> thank you so much. >> so glad you made it. >> we love you alexis. "gilmore girls: a year in the life" is streaming right now as we speak on netflix. get ready to stock up your makeup back, drug store finds under $20. >> and speaking of beauty, we're going to get up close and personal when we go fishing with "vikings" star travis fimmel. oh, gosh, he's cute. >> right after this. >> fine.

2:43 am
website, list things that their children would like for christmas and then every day americans can go online and decide to sponsor a child and purchase a gift for them. >> reporter: mom lyette got the idea to start the program when she noticed a social media post from a military widow feeling cash strapped wondering if there were programs available to help families like hers at the holidays. realizing there were no programs in place, she and her family sprang into action. the options to shop for their gifts themselves or to donate money or gift cards that the rebacks use to make the children of fallen soldiers feel special at this special time of year. we spent time with the family as they hit the stores playing the role of santa claus. checking the kids' lists. >> good job. >> picking what's nice. >> no. orange is my favorite. >> bringing the items home to wrap and seal with a customized touch.
