Hello and happy Tuesday. I feel like I haven’t sat down and talked about TV shows in a minute, but here we are, with a brand new Mila Watches. Today I want to talk to you about Younger, a show my best friend told me to watch a long time ago and I never did until I found myself at an Airbnb that had Hulu and thought “why not?”. Teachers was actually my first choice because I absolutely live and die for that show, but I guess it got cancelled or it actually isn’t in Hulu anymore because I couldn’t find it.
Anyway, Younger is this show about a woman called Liza who’s 40 years old, recently divorced, with a daughter in college. She needs to find a job, but after so many years without working, and considering her age, the job thing is not happening. Can you guess what happens? Yes, she creates this new life for herself in which she is 26 years old, and once she does that, she gets the hot boyfriend, the awesome job, and a new BFF. Cute, right?
Now, I wasn’t emotionally in the best place when I (binge) watched this show, so I might have a distorted view on it. All in all, it’s one of those harmless shows that are basically just there for entertaining. I mean, I don’t think I got a valuable lesson from it other than “don’t lie about your age,” but it did make me laugh at times, so I’ll give it that.
The huge highlight of the show for me is Josh, interpreted by Nico Tortorella. That guy is absolutely perfect and delicious, and I could have him for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He could totally be my midlife crisis (if the plan of being happily married and with kids doesn’t work for me), and he could fill my body with tattoos (at a girlfriend discount, of course). Honestly, though, I got to a point where I was just sort of waiting for Josh to appear shirtless, kind of what happened with Prison Break and pretty much any other show with a hot guy in it.
Younger is still releasing episodes, and you all know how much that annoys me because it means at some point I’ll have to wait for a new one to be released. I think I stopped watching halfway through season 4, and right now the episodes being released are from season 5, but I think I’m done with the show, at least for now. I think when the drama is too obvious, shows get boring. I mean, you get the big “will everyone find out about Liza’s lies?” and then “are Josh and Liza meant to be together, or should they both find someone their own age?” and that’s basically it throughout every season. I’m seriously done with that right now.
Have you watched Younger? What are your thoughts on it? Let me know in the comments.
Love, Miss Camila
