Younger – Get Real (3×12)

“I just don’t understand what happened” Kelsey said to Liza as they were checking out from their unsuccessful vacation in the Hampton’s. Kelsey was well aware of the proposal happening but so unaware of the other messed up stuff going on like Liza’s real age and that the proposal didn’t happen because she made out with her boss. That’s when it clicked for Liza too – Josh saw her lock lips with Charles.

Back in New York, a distraught Liza tried her best to get in touch with Josh but he was MIA. Can ya blame him? He put his heart on the line for her and ended up seeing the woman he loves cheat on him. Low blow.

And if that wasn’t enough to bring Liza down, Empirical was looking to score a book deal with a motivation speaker who was really good at telling people to “get real” about what they wanted out of life. Liza and Kels attended a seminar and turns out, Liza’s heartbroken ex-husband was also in attendance. He got pulled up on stage and began talking about how his ex-wife who he was still in love with was out living this teenage life and dating a younger man and completely abandoning all family responsibilities. Not David can really talk  because he’s the reason their marriage fell apart; he cheated and he had a gambling problem.

The speaker encourages David to call his ex-wife right then and there so of course Liza books it into the bathroom. There she is confronted by both of them and comes to a shocking realization – she’s actually in love with Josh. It isn’t just a hook up for her and she isn’t using him either, she’s just in love. But being hurt so badly before, she’s self destructive and sabotaging a good thing before it hurts her. And can we blame Liza? At her age, dating a younger man is pretty scary and you never know when he’ll leave you for a younger woman or blame you for screwing up the best years of his life.

With that realization, Liza texts Josh who allows her to “come over.” She tries to explain that she made a huge mistake but realized she’s actually in love with him but he wasn’t ready to hear it. Listening to Josh really made me sad because well, he had a point. He accepted that she was older, he accepted her daughter, who is in college, he accepted her ex-husband and he accepted that she didn’t want kids. “I chose you,” he exclaimed. And in that moment, it was pretty clear – Liza hadn’t done much for him in return. It was always about her.

Then came the real kicker – Josh called her a “liar and a cheater” who didn’t realize her lies were hurting everyone around her. With that, he reluctantly kicked her out. Sad part is that it’s all true. We like Liza so we’re rooting for her – how can you not, this woman has been through a lot and for the most part, lied in order to get her life back on track. But at the same time, she’s doing exactly the same thing her husband did to her.

At her lowest, she trudged home to cry to Maggie only to find a heartbroken Kelsey, who lost Colin’s love as quickly as she’d lost his book. Damn that Pippa! Before Kels was even able to vent about what was going on in her life, Liza hit her with the truth bomb. “This is my daughter, Caitlyn. She’s in college,” she said. “And I’m not 26, I’m going to be 41 in a few weeks,” she added.

“I don’t understand,” Kelsey replied.

“Then let me explain,” Liza answered.

Powerful words considering Josh never let her explain. And in order for anyone to understand why Liza did what she did, she needed to explain from the beginning.

Things just GOT REAL and the writers weren’t lying – this changes everything. We’ve all been preparing ourselves for this moment, so has Liza. She knew she had to come clean eventually. The question is – will everyone be as forgiving as Josh was when he found out? Will she keep her job? Or will she be down in the dumps worse than when we first met her in episode 1?

Other Thoughts

  • I’m sure Kelsey feels betrayed by everyone around her. Colin “paused” their relationship because after Netflix reached out for a series deal, he let it get to his head and didn’t want love to get in the way of success. Meanwhile Lauren betrayed her by allowing her new Jewish med doctor to move in and not even asking Kels if it was ok. At this point, the only person she has in her screwed up life dynamic is Liza.
  • Surprisingly, things are going well for Diana. She posed nude for her new man, who she’s also living with. Her parrot also learned a few words…. all the ones she screamed during the best “sex” ever with Richard, which Elpheba politely re-enacted in front of a bunch of kids and Charles. Oh boy.
  • As for Charles, last we saw, he told Liza he was fond of her but wouldn’t be getting in the middle of happy couple again. Although really too late and I swear we’ve heard that before from him. Will things change when he finds out Liza is actually his age and that’s why they get along so well?

What is going through your mind after that Younger finale?

Why Isn’t ‘Younger’ Season 7 Returning This Summer?

Published

Younger Sex Liza & Rock and Roll

For six seasons, Younger has been my favorite summer series. Liza’s love life feels like an endless summer romance, so while the series, which premiered in March of 2015, didn’t start off as a summer staple, it’s transformed into one with the past three seasons all premiering in June. 

The lighthearted half-hour sitcom finds Liza Miller, a 40-year-old woman struggling to to re-enter the world of publishing after hiatus. When she keeps getting shown the door, she devises a plan to pretend that she’s 26, and her lie takes her on quite an adventure.

The series is fun and flirty, giving you the kind of vibe you want during the summer months. 

And as the weather heats up, so do Liza’s relationships as she’s caught between composed and accomplished, Charles, and free-spirited, Josh.

However, there’s no sign of season 7 of Younger anywhere, and that’s because, it isn’t coming this summer.

The ‘Lizzie McGuire’ Revival Only Succeeds If It’s a Mature, Authentic Reflection of Adult Life

Despite being renewed for a seventh season on July 2019, the series hasn’t even begun production on the upcoming season.

If production hadn’t been derailed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns, the series would have likely finished filming in time for a July premiere.

Debi Mazar (Maggie) told ET  that the series was set to have their first table read on the season on March 24 with production kicking off on March 30, which is around the time all TV show and film productions shut down. 

While it’s unclear when production may resume, Mazar said they are eyeing August or September, which would push the series back to a 2021 premiere likely in January.

All of this means that we’re going to be waiting a lot longer than intended to get an answer to that season 6 cliffhanger — will Liza Miller accept Charles’ proposal or will she’ll decide that her heart still pines for Josh?

And can the series ever move on from the love triangle? Do we even want it to?

While Younger season 7 would have been a great escape for all of us who have been cooped up at home and hoping to get lost in Liza and Kelsey’s world’s again, we’re just going to have to exercise some patience. 

The summer won’t be the same without the series, but don’t lose all hope. As you look for your upcoming summer shows to watch, you can check out our list here! 

And be sure to add The Bold Type to your list as it returns for the latter half of season 4 on June 11.

Sexy and Steamy TV Shows to Watch During ‘The Bachelor’ Hiatus

Published

Shows to Watch During The Bachelor Hiatus

With The Bachelor taking a hiatus (well, until their spinoff Listen to Your Heart premieres in April), you need to fill that reality TV dating void in your heart with some shows that are equally as hot and steamy.

While there are plenty of choices to make from the Bachelor franchise, if you’re looking to shake things up the same way Peter Weber did on his season, we suggest these shows!

 

What/If

Young scientist Lisa is strapped for cash and needs it to fund a life-changing project when Anne Montgomery (Oscar-winner Renée Zelwegger) approaches her with an offer she can’t refuse: one night alone with her husband. The only condition: she cannot ask what happened.

Grand Hotel

The telenovela lasted only one season before ABC canceled it, but it was a sizzlin’ drama focused on a forbidden love story and a who-dun-it murder mystery. Two of our favorite things.

Younger

Liza, a 40-year-old single-mom struggles to re-enter the working world. But when she meets a 26-year-old guy who believes she’s his age, it all becomes so clear as she fakes her age, gets a publishing job, and gets a second shot at her crazy 20s… that is until people start figuring out her secret that she’s trying desperately to protect.

 

The Bold Type

Fashion meets sex on The Bold Type. Three besties — Kat, Sutton, and Jane — are living their best lives in New York City and working for a fashion magazine, Scarlett. As they “push the envelope” in their career, they’re also doing it in their daily life as they find themselves, have plenty of sexual experiences, and learn how to be comfortable in their own bodies while feeling as lost as most millennials do.

Good Girls

Sisters Beth and Annie and best friend Ruby get fed up with playing by the rules and constantly losing, so they get a crazy idea to rob a grocery store. One illegal decision suddenly lands them in hot water and starts a dangerous life of crime and even a crime of passion with one sexy “gang friend.”

The Affair

The series explores the emotional and psychological effects of two affairs. Newlyweds Alison and Cole are experiencing problems in their marriage and she finds solace in the arms of Noah, a teacher vacationing at his in-laws’ Hamptons estate with his family. What starts off as a summer affair quickly becomes much more complicated.

True Blood

Described as the “adult Twilight” and the more intense version of  The Vampire Diaries when it first came out, Sookie Stackhouse, an oddball at school who can read minds, falls for a 173-year-old vampire named Bill Compton. Bill and his vamp clique have joined the land of the living after a new synthetic blood allows vampires to survive without human blood. Sex, lust, and bloodlust all fuel this HBO series.

Elite

A private school in Spain becomes the scene of a murder brought on by a clash between the rich and the poor. The murder mystery begins as no one knows who’s responsible, and there’s a lot of sexual tension between the good looking students that leads the storyline.

Reality TV Shows

Love Island

In the same vein as many other dating reality shows, Love Island brings together a cast of hot singles ready for love and romance that’s fueled on by warm weather on the island and a grand prize of £50,00o.

 

Married at First Sight

The title of the series is pretty self-explanatory, but in the case that it needs to be explained, a group of strangers looking for love get married to a complete stranger the first time they lay eyes on him/her. They’re paired up with the help of a spiritualist, a relationship coach, and a sociologist who use “scientific matchmaking methods.” The remainder of the season documents their honeymoon and life after marriage. Following several weeks, the couple gets the option of staying together or splitting up. 

 

Are You The One?

The tagline of this series is my favorite: if your perfect match was standing in front of you, would you know? A group of singles tries to find their soulmate using a dating algorithm that processes a ton of information including a compatibility test. It then pairs the couples it thinks have the highest chance of success, but it’s kept from the participants who instead mingle for weeks and try to find their ideal significant other. If they choose the wrong person, they start over, if they don’t, well, love and money are involved.

Love is Blind

The Netflix series is a new kind of dating experiment that finds strangers meeting via cubes and falling in love without ever seeing each other. The whole idea is to remove looks from the equation and find your soulmate based on connection alone. If finding someone you vibe with is successful in the pods, the couples get engaged, have a honeymoon in Mexico, and walk down the aisle a few weeks later. Who will say yes? And who will walk away?

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

on

Liza takes on New York City after modeling for Infinitely 21 on 'Younger.'

Younger had some great moments and some less than great moments on Younger Season 6.

On a broad level, the storylines weren’t as fleshed out as they should have been, plenty of story arcs got condensed for the sake of time, the characters weren’t as empowered, and the love triangle got pushed so heavily, both Team Josh and Team Charles teams were over it by the finale episode.

But the magic that made Younger the fresh, inspiring, and addictive show is still there hidden under all of that.

We’re looking back at the best, worst and funniest moments of Season 6.

Most Frustrating Thing About the Season

The love triangle.

We all dug the Charles vs. Josh conundrum in the show’s early days, but we can all agree that Liza’s indecisiveness is tiring.

The best thing that can happen come Season 7 is for Liza to make a choice and stick to it.

 

Funniest Moment

There’s never a shortage of funny moments on Younger.

Ironically, two of the funniest moments involved vaginas: Maggie sticking garlic up hers to get rid of a yeast infection delivered plenty of laughs on Younger Season 6 Episode 4 as did Lauren getting her private parts stuck to an ice sculpture on Younger Season 6 Episode 12.

But my personal favorite was Liza’s micro-dosing experience.

On Younger Season 6 Episode 6, Liza hallucinated Charles and Josh morphing into one person — it would make things easier for her — and then ballroom danced with both men when in reality, she was dancing with a plant
