When I tell you that this show airs on TV Land, you're going to think - TV Land, isn't that that the channel that just plays reruns of The Brady Bunch and The Andy Griffith Show? Well, it used to be. In the last few years, TV Land has attempted to transform its brand, now hoping to appeal to a younger demographic. It's newest show Younger, is doing just that.
Younger follows Liza Miller, a 40-year-old mother, who pretends to be a 26-year-old in order to get a job in the publishing industry. After landing a job, she immediately befriends several twenty-somethings, including Kelsey Peters (played by Hilary Duff!!!!) and Josh, a very handsome younger man. Attempting to balance her 40- and 26-year-old self obviously proves challenging and makes for an entertaining show.
If the intriguing plot doesn't convince you, let me just show you a picture of Josh...
I was not expecting this picture to be so huge, but you're welcome.
The main character, despite her age, is pretty relatable for me and most twenty-somethings, balancing her career and her relationships, oftentimes unsuccessfully. As a 22-year-old living in New York City, I not only understand plenty of the situations she winds up in, but appreciate the humor that the show's writers bring to them.
While the sitcom is not necessarily "quality TV", it's light-hearted, fun and only thirty minutes, so really what do you have to lose?
You can find episodes here.
@redridergirl - Yes, I love the actress from Entourage, Shauna was always one of my favorite characters! I'll have to look up her cooking show, that sounds interesting.
@beywatch - It's sort of like that yeah, but the main character a bit less nerdy than Drew Barrymore's character. Similar premise though!
I'm OK with all of this, I think.
Oh see I can't even correct my own typos before I sent my comment off! Oops sorry! Tech crap!
I like this show and the actors/actresses! And did you know that dark haired actress who who is her best friend and was on Entourage has her own cooking show with her husband and family. And being older I have to say ah we 40/50 yr Olds may not always be up on all the tech cap but we're definitely experienced and can do anything! We are the new 20/30! Just wait ladies you'll soon know what I mean! It's great to be older not young! It's total freedom!
