Bringing together seventeen original essays by scholars from around the world, Screwball Television offers a variety of international perspectives on Gilmore Girls (WB/CW, 2000–2007). In this tightly focused yet wide–ranging collection, scholars discuss the show’s debt to Hollywood’s screwball comedies of the 1930s, its pervasive use of intertextual references, and its image as a "kinder, gentler kind of cult television series."

Screwball Television seeks to bring Gilmore Girls more fully into academic discourse not only as a topic worthy of critical scrutiny but also as an infinitely rewarding text capable of stimulating the imagination of students beyond the classroom.
