Younger Season 1 Episodes 1 and 2 Recap 3/31/15 – Pilot
Tonight was the season premiere of Younger and everyone is already raving about it. The show centers around Liza, the 40 year old mother who wants to jump back into work but finds it hard to do so, being that she is 40 and the market aims at a younger audience when hiring their girls. While she is smart, witty and more than experienced, her 15 year hiatus turns away her first interview which the first episode opens up with.
Younger premiered it’s first season tonight on TV Land with the first two episodes which chronicled Liza’s beginning steps into joining the younger crowd. After her interview bombs, she meets her friend Maggie, the ever so amazing Debi Mazer, for some drinks. Here we find out that Maggie is a lesbian and a bit of a party girl as she tells Liza to order 6 more drinks while she quickly runs to the bathroom. As Liza tries to get the bartenders attention, the handsome and charming Josh makes his way over to her and orders them two shots of Bourbon, proceeding to flirt with her. He is clearly into her and takes her phone to set a date for the following Thursday for them to meet and as Maggie makes her way back over, Liza decides it’s time to go. The two scurry off and back to Maggie’s apartment. Liza and Maggie share a conversation in which she tells her to stop worrying about her age and lie, to tell everyone she’s 26 and pretend to be 26 to get the job she wants, and the guy she wants. With the help of Maggie, Liza has a makeover to make her more hip and to fit into the “younger” crowd better. The next day Liza aces an interview with Diana Trout, head of marketing. In a rush to call Maggie and share the news, she runs to the bathroom and that’s where we meet Kelsey, welcome back Hilary Duff!
