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
