Younger – The Jade Crusade (2×04)

Published

on

Why is Younger only 30 minutes long? I barely get into the episode and it’s already over. Can someone at TV Land please make this an hour long show – I guarantee you, viewers will be flocking!

This week, we didn’t get much Liza and Josh drama, which was nice but it also meant there was no Josh shirtless. I know he’s not a piece of meat, but I do love me some Josh.

Instead, we got a whole lot of Charles who became an internet sensation known as the “Empiriconda.” Yes, that is the BEST name I’ve ever heard. Liza’s mission was to shut down all the picture of Charles and his goods and she suceeded for the most part with Lauren’s help. Unfortunately, in the digital age, everything that goes up (no pun intended) stays up (that’s actually not how it usually works).

Liza’s other mission was to help Kelsey land a very young and hip writer named Jade. Jade’s honest book bashing the industry for shaming people for aging was going to be a best seller and Kelsey knew it. Jade however was unsure if Millenial was the right fit for her because she was convinced Kelsey and Liza were a little too “basic.” Serious insult! Redmond gave the girls a chance to prove her wrong, but during the outing, Jade insisted on being pretty lame because she was out of molly and not drunk enough. And when Josh finally arrived, she threw a drink at his face and dipped. Yeah, she used the “work meeting” to get back at her douchebag ex!

Josh admitted to cheating on Jade, which basically squashed their chances at landing their first young author. But Liza wasn’t ready to give up yet. With Josh’s help, they kidnapped Jade and had him apoligize to her. The result – another drink to the face. Hey, at least Josh was kind enough to help his GF out. She finally signed with millenial and when she tweeted the good news, she also included a picture of Charles’s “wenis” as Diana put it. Yikes. To be honest, I think the girls should have taken Josh’s advice on this one – I don’t care how much money someone can make me, if she’s a nutjob, I don’t want to be around her. And Jade is definitely going to be a craaaaazy!

 

The star of the show this week was definitely Lauren who declared she would be monogamous with Maggie. But aside from the witty one liners, I felt like this episode brought nothing new to the table. Maybe that’s just what happens when Liza focuses on work for one episode and doesn’t break up with Josh multiple times.

Next week Liza runs into some friends from back in the day who invite her and Josh to dinner. How awkward will that be? I guess it’s not as bad now considering Josh knows Liza’s real age. But just wait till her ex gets wind of her new boyfriend!

Younger – It’s All About the Money, Honey (6×10)

Published

on

Another day, another PR nightmare for Millennial.

Kelsey, Liza, and Charles visited my hometown of Chicago on Younger Season 6 Episode 10, but things weren’t exactly a breeze in the Windy City.

The trip was high-stress from the beginning as Kelsey and Charles attempted to sway their last remaining investor in to keep the company afloat.

They’re broke now, remember?

Charles took charge in the male-dominated meeting, but Kelsey flexed her publisher muscle by explaining that Millennial’s main asset is their ability to keep up with the times. Sometimes, a little too much.

There was a mention of transparency, which was worrisome considering Millennial’s lack of transparency when it came to Liza’s lie.

However, it wasn’t something the investors, all older men, would have been made privy too.

As they pointed out in the meeting, they didn’t understand the power of social media or how it could make them money, so chances are they didn’t Google to read up on Millennial’s recent hiccups.

But they got a very detailed lesson on social media courtesy of Kelsey.

After securing the funding, Kelsey and Charles’ celebrations were short-lived as they were plagued by another social media snafu, this time not one of Liza’s making.

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

Published

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.

Out in the Open - Younger

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.

Youthfullness  - Younger Season 6 Episode 9

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.
