So this new TV show just started and holy crap am I in love! Are you watching ‘Younger‘? Because if you’re not I think you need to rethink your life choices.
“Younger” follows 40-year-old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find out it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a 20-something guy at a bar convinces her she looks younger than she is, Liza tries to pass herself off as 26 — with the help of a makeover, courtesy of her best friend Maggie (Mazar). Armed with new confidence, she lands a job as an assistant to the temperamental Diana (Shor) and teams up with her new co-worker and fellow 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams.
I originally saw the trailer for this new show while I was cruising Hulu looking for things to watch (I started to watch an ep of ‘Party Down’ but the trailer for this played and I was like “bye Felicia”… and I never looked back). First what caught my attention was “from Darren Star, the creator of ‘Sex and the City'”, and then I stayed for Hilary Duff, I’m not going to even try and lie. Lizzie McGuire is my home girl and always will be. But in any case I’m glad I stayed because it’s all “YAAASSSS”!
But in all seriousness, watch this trailer and then if it tickles your fancy like it did mine, go seek out the first two episodes and then set your DVR to capture Tuesday night’s new ep. Side note: where has Sutton Foster been all my life?!
Despite what that trailer says, ‘Younger’ aired its back to back series premiere eps on March 31st on TV Land. You can find ‘Younger’ on Hulu, I’m sure you could catch it On Demand, watch it live on TV Land Tuesdays at 10/9c, or through the glorious magic of the internet you can watch it right on TV Land’s site! There is no escaping this show, and quite frankly why would you want to?
Once you’ve fallen in love, come back here and chat with me about it!
