Review of Younger

Wednesdays, 10:00 PM ET on TV Land

30 minutes

Based on the novel by Pamela Redmond Satran, Younger follows 40-year old Liza (Foster), a suddenly single mother who tries to get back into the working world, only to find it’s nearly impossible to start at the bottom at her age. When a chance encounter with a young 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 20-something Kelsey (Duff) to make it in the career of her dreams. Now she just has to make sure no one finds out the secret only she and Maggie share.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

With some of the lack luster comedies this year I was a little bit skeptical about Younger, I'd seen a couple previews but decided to wait a few weeks then play catch up. After binge watching the first 6 episodes I actually screamed at my computer because I had to wait a week until the next one aired!!

The characters are really well written and the comedy is on point. There is a definite Sex and the City feel to it (both Darren Star works) but without so much of Carries self deprecation. Glad that this has been picked up for Series 2 as it keeps getting better.
