Fake mil­len­nial

Fairlady - - FLY FINDS -

I’ve ba­si­cally been telling ev­ery­one and their mother to watch Younger on Show­max. The show is pro­duced by Dar­ren Star

(Sex and the City) and it’s about 40-year-old Liza (played by Sut­ton Fos­ter) who can’t find a job in pub­lish­ing af­ter years as a stay-at-home mom. So her friend Mag­gie makes a so-crazy-it-might-just-work sug­ges­tion: why not just pre­tend to be 26? Pre­tend­ing to be a mil­len­nial, how­ever, has its chal­lenges – es­pe­cially when you’re not that well-versed in so­cial me­dia and peo­ple from your real life pop up un­ex­pect­edly.

The show is now in its fifth sea­son (so there’s plenty to binge-watch if you’re only join­ing in now) and #TeamCharles is fi­nally get­ting some ac­tion – google ‘Peter Her­mann’ to see why fans are ex­cited about that par­tic­u­lar de­vel­op­ment.

If for no other rea­son, watch it for Liza’s boss Diana’s with­er­ing in­sults (‘Liza’s gen­er­a­tion has no con­cept of style – it’s all rompers and fanny packs’). Liesl
