SO IT’S A SHOW is a biweekly podcast I co-host. In each episode, we examine a new pop culture reference in an episode of Gilmore Girls. This episode was published. Feb. 24, 2017.
“DON’T TAKE THE PILLS!”
Kyla and Taylor are talking Valley of the Dolls, both the ‘66 book and ’67 movie. We try to explain the crazy plot, get into why author Jacqueline Susann was a groundbreaker, and compare Patty Duke’s real singing voice with her (gasp!) fake singing voice. Plus, this story seems to have way too many overlaps with Gilmore Girls to be coincidental, which we promise to get to amid our tangents about 30 Rock, 20th Century Women, and SNL.
