A year ago, I made a deal with my girlfriend: I’d watch three episodes of Gilmore Girls; she would do the same with The Shield. Today, I’m six seasons into Gilmore Girls, and she hasn’t seen Vic Mackey murder a single honest cop. I don’t mind—it turns out Gilmore Girls isn’t just for girls. It’s not an off-brand Everwood; it’s like a CW Simpsons, with a little Shutter Island mixed in. The Gilmore Guys—L.A. comedians Kevin T. Porter, who’s been obsessed with the series for more than a decade; and Demi Adejuyigbe, who’s watching the series for the first time—have realized the same, launching their recap podcast right as the series’ Netflix release has made it easy to binge. In this D.C. taping, they’re talking season 5, episode 3, wherein the town reacts to Luke and Lorelai dating. What will those Gilmore Girls get up to next, and what will those Gilmore Guys have to say about it? The show begins at 8 p.m. at Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. NW. $15–$18.
