    "Mom and daughter stories always have interesting twists and turns and fun and sadness and joy and grief and Gilmore Girls is no exception. First aired several years ago by CW, should be on everyone's list of 'best' mom and daughter shows. You'll agree."

    "One of the funniest written and well acted sitcoms of our generation. They find a way to weave modern sociological topics in society and make them humorous. It's a great show to watch with the whole family and is one of the few sitcoms left that doesn't disappoint. "

    "All the years of watching telenovelas with the two women who raised her - her sexy, young-at-heart mother, Xiomara ("Xo"), and her still - devout grandmother, Alba - have given Jane a slightly unrealistic view of romance. Although she is determined not to make the same mistake Xo made - becoming an unwed mother at 16 Jane could not be closer to the two wonderful women who have shaped her life."

    "I felts like this show was more centered on Eric and the teams struggles. As opposed to the mother daughter relationship with Tami and Julie. Not a go to for me when I want to watch a show with a heartfelt mother/daughter story line. "

    "The Handmaid's Tale is one of the single best TV shows about mothers and daughters. The show is about the struggles of a mom and daughter pair as they challenge the system and conquer it together. As I watch the show, I can't help but feel closer to my own mother, I'm reminded that that bond is sacred and transcends time and space even on TV."
