Critic Reviews for Younger: Season 1

At 56, Star ... may no longer be able to claim to the wunderkind tag (damn that ageism), but he retains his feel for the zeitgeist, and an uncanny ability to wed hi-gloss fantasy to real-world concerns.

Foster is so likable, she makes us care about Liza more than we would have expected.

April 2, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Any success that Younger achieves is thanks to [Sutton] Foster-who, at 40, and despite the absurd situations she's placed in-is somehow more convincing at playing a twentysomething than the 27-year-old Hilary Duff.

Younger, with its fizzy sensibility and sexual frankness, is a not-so-veiled attempt to lure younger audiences to the network, but there's a caginess to the humor.

April 2, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Once the viewer moves past whether or not a rather winsome Foster, who is 40 in real life, could pass for someone 14 years younger - she can, by the way - the real enjoyment is in watching what she learns about herself and others along the way.

It has the interesting quality of actually being about something that not many shows are about: the push-pull of aging as a tough thing in some moments and a really fortunate, glorious thing in others
