Younger – A Kiss Is Just a Kiss (3×01)

Published

on

A kiss is just a kiss… unless it means more. In the season 3 premiere of Younger, Liza was kissing two men and it meant something with both of them.

I didn’t realize how much I missed Younger speaking to my life as a millenial. I know Liza is in her 40s and just pretending to be 26, but she really gets this life I’m living now.

And as someone with what I would like to imagine is kind of an old soul, I understand Liza’s struggle between Josh and Charles. How could you not? Both of them are so alluring and life-impacting in their own way. Josh is the young guy who breathes fresh air into Liza while showing her things she never imagined she’s experience at this age. But Charles, he’s like fine wine – better with age. She can connect with him on an intellectual level and that’s hot. And have you SEEN the way he looks at her? I’m more impressed with the fact that she’s able to keep her hands off him at work.

This season will be a continuation of Liza’s struggle between two men and her walking the line of being a good friend and a good employee, while still keeping her secret. With each episode, it’s proving to be more difficult, especially as she becomes kind of a socialite.

After that kiss at the department store, Charles proposed that the two meet at a classy restaurant to talk it out. Liza blew off Josh in order to make the so-called date, which definitely says that she’s interested. Unfortunately, when she got there, she saw Charles chatting with Rose’s parents – a couple she met that morning while shipping her daughter off to college. Her grown daughter. There was no way Liza could go in there without her cover being blown, so she blew off the date. To Charles that simply meant “i’m not interested” and he blew her off by saying “it was just a kiss, let it go.” We know you don’t really mean that dude.

Instead of a hot date, Liza ended up meeting Kelsey to help take care of a drunk Diana. Who drinks straight up vodka on a work night… or ever? Gross. Despite Diana’s drunkenness, her intentions were good as she realized Kelsey was staying late at work to avoid the loneliness. The end of the night however ended up in her sleeping in spanx and throwing her wedding dress out the window, only to find a hobo wearing in the next day. I’d expect nothing less from Diana and definitely recognize that hungover look she had the next day.

As for Kelsey, it will be interesting to see how she moves and into a character that isn’t relying on a shitty man.  She finally admitted what we all knew – she wasn’t devastated about Thad’s death, she was relieved. She was only marrying him to prove everyone wrong about their relationship and it wasn’t fair to either of them. With that realization, I hope she finds a HOT and WORTHY guy? Liza can’t have all of them!

Younger – Millennial’s Next Top Model (6×09)

Published

on

This season just keeps getting better and better.

Millennial, with Kelsey in tow, dealt with the aftermath of “42-gate” on Younger Season 6 Episode 9.

The publishing world was rocked by Pauline’s scandalous revelation that Liza, formerly known as 1 of 2 awesome millennial editors, was, in fact, a 42-year-old woman.

The company was sinking, clients were dropping, authors were fleeting, but they didn’t have to be.

This negative reaction could have been prevented with better preparation from Team Millennial.

Since they knew the truth, they were the ones holding all the cards and should have had a contingency plan in case someone exposed Liza.

And there were plenty of people who could have potentially pulled the trigger.

Instead, they were trying to catch up with the headlines, which made it harder to change the narrative already painted about the company and its employees.

Zane was the only one with an outside perspective; he wasn’t close to Liza, he didn’t have any connection to her, nor did he owe her anything.

But his advice to fire Liza also overlooked the negative impact it would have had on the company.

Liza lied because a woman in her forties wasn’t granted the same opportunities in the workforce as a thriving woman in her 20s.

If they fired her, they’d only be feeding into the age discrimination that Liza was trying to combat with her illegal move in the first place.

They’d essentially be proving her point.

Zane was right in saying that Liza lied and made everyone, namely Kelsey and Charles, complicit, but he failed to acknowledge that they all knew about her lie and helped her cover it up.

They lied on her behalf, so in a way, they’re just as responsible for Millennial’s potential downfall as Liza.

Harboring a secret is equal to assisting someone in harboring said secret.

What a big, emotionally-loaded episode.

The cast of Younger wasn’t lying when they said Younger Season 6 Episode 8 was the episode we’ve all been waiting for.

If you’re not crying happy tears after Liza’s and Diana’s “I love you” exchange, you have no soul.

Catching Up - Younger

We’ve all been so focused on Younger’s love-triangle, but the magic has always been in the relationships between the female characters.

Liza’s secret unraveled at a rapid pace and by the end, we were all in a different space mentally, physically and emotionally.

For the most part, everyone was in a better, more honest place, even if Millennial is stuck going through an identity crisis.

Diana was one of the last remaining Empirical/Millennial employees who was kept in the dark about Liza’s real age, and we all wondered when and how she’d find out the truth.

I knew that when it happened that it was going to be intense, but I had no idea it would be such an emotionally raw moment.

Diana rarely wears her heart on her sleeve, but when Pauline pubically tore down Liza, she put her foot down against the alleged slander and came to her assistant’s defense.

One might say it’s wildly out of character for Diana to be so bold since we’ve never seen her defend someone so passionately, but it really wasn’t.

Diana loves her co-workers under her icy exterior and she’d do anything for them.

Younger Merger, She Wrote Review

Someone pass the tissues because Younger Season 6 Episode 6 had me in tears from both laughing and crying.

What a work out in 23 minutes!

The mix of a comedic and heartfelt made this the best episode to date.

My expectations were high after seeing Peter Hermann and Nico Tortella tease the episode as the one “we’ve always wanted to happen.”

And the moment I heard the words retreat, I knew it was going to go down.

All of the craziest things have happened at retreats and that was when microdosing (taking small amounts of drugs) wasn’t involved.

Add drugs and the fact that Liza’s there with her ex and a current boyfriend who she’s feuding with, well, what could go wrong?

I don’t condone the use of drugs, but man, it was so hilarious to see her hallucinating.

There was no shortage of funny moments: Josh and Charles merged into one person, Charles spoke using Josh’s voice, and Liza danced with a plant.

That last one is going down as one of the show’s most iconic moments.

While I’m not a fan of continuing the love triangle, if we have to endure it, this was the most interesting way to go about it.

With the added layer of not-LCD, my interest was piqued.

What would come of their heightened reality, open mind, and unlocked unconsciousness?

Apparently, the only realization that Liza had was that she’s still torn between Josh and Charles. Go figure.

Now, I’m in no way complaining about Liza’s dance routine because they got to incorporate Sutton Foster’s real-life talents into it in a way that felt authentic and fun to the story, but I wish her altered state allowed her to finally settle for one.

Flipping between Josh and Charles in bed was great, but at some point, the show has to reign in on one and let the other one go.

At this point, I don’t even care which guy she ends up with, I just can’t keep bouncing back-and-forth.

Especially because it does seem like Josh has finally accepted Liza’s new relationship and even bonded with Charles while she was otherwise occupied.

After the retreat, Charles mentioned that he had a good chat with Josh, which convinced him to fight for his family at Millennial.
