Younger – Summer Friday (3×09)

Published

Who else wishes that it was actually a summer friday today? When I look out the window, all I see is cold darkness and some light flurries.

But over in New York, everyone has been hit with a heat wave, literally and physically.

As everyone is ditching work to vacation in the Hamptons, Diana is stuck seeing her therapist who advises her to get out and live life. She takes it a little too literally and goes on a date with the therapist next door, which doesn’t sit well with her doctor because well, he knows this dude is trouble. The red flags were all right in front of her: he picks up emotionally unstable women, his wife kicked him out, he’s living in his office and washing his hair in his sink. Yet her need for male company trumped logic and after just one night, he was using his psych lingo to trick her into letting him live with her for a little. And you know what happens, you let them stay for a day and they never leave. Don’t say we didn’t warn you Diana!

Things were also heating up between Kelsey and her new BF, Colin. She loved his book and wanted to get it published as soon as possible, but knew an agent was necessary since you’re never supposed to mix business with pleasure. Her intentions were in the right place but the excitement of Redmon’s agreeing to take on the book got the best of her and she over shared a little too much during her EW interview. Before the ink was even dry, EW posted a huge chunk of the book, enticing other publishing houses who were eating it up and tripling Empirical’s offer. As she propelled him to greatness, she left herself behind and virtually screwed over Millenial. It does say a lot about her though, putting Colin’s happiness before the success of her company. Either she’s not all wrapped up in business yet or she’s really into this guy. And if they stay together and he scores a $1.2 million dollar deal, she still wins, even if her imprint doesn’t.

Charles was noticeably absent this week, but that didn’t stop the tension from running high with Liza and Josh. Their relationship has so many layers that you can peel back – so many stories that can be told and so many avenues to explore… and that’s not a reference to anal sex, which Josh definitely proposed. Much to his disappointment,  Liza denied it because “she’d been there and done it” and it just wasn’t her thing. That’s when Josh had this really big realization that Liza had a life before him and nothing they’d ever do together would be her “first.”  Liza however is a mastermind at fixing messes and gave Josh a first – her tattoo.

Josh was thrilled especially since he thought the symbol, an hourglass on it’s side with the sand equally balanced, represented “time stopping” when they were together. To me, the tattoo was much more; a representation of Liza getting the best of both worlds – her 40s and her 30s again – all meeting in the middle.

Other Thoughts

  • Did Charles ever get back together with Radha?
  • What’s going on with Liza’s divorce? Is David still trying to make things work?
  • I’d definitely like to see them have more screen time and see how he reacts when he sees the new Liza!
  • Truthfully speaking, Liza did NOT look 40 in that bikini. I dream of having her bod when I’m her age.
  • Anyone else miss Lauren? Now that she’s not dating Maggie, she hasn’t been around as much!
  • Will anyone ever find out Liza’s real age?
  • Speaking of Liza and Josh’s relationship having so many layers, we never even thought about what would happen if they accidentally got pregnant but it seems like something that will come up in next week’s episode. Despite Josh thinking he’ll never have any firsts, I feel like their relationship is a whole bunch of firsts that are just as meaningful to her as they were in her marriage.

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

Published

on

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?

Season 7 HERE WE COME! #YoungerTV

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
