t's a concept that shouldn't work at all, but somehow, Foster and the rest of the cast - including Hilary Duff and Debi Mazar - elevate Younger into something both silly and special...
June 26, 2018
A really excellent freshman season, in which every episode passed the Bechdel test.

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.
October 26, 2015
Whether you relate more to the 40-somethings looking back on their youth, or the 20-somethings dreaming of their future, we can all settle on one universal truth: None of us have any idea what we're doing. Ever.
October 26, 2015
Younger is fine. But in a TV universe of ever more scripted series, it also feels unessential.
October 26, 2015
She's charming and so is this show.
October 26, 2015
Younger feels like it belongs on a different network. And that's probably a great thing for TV Land.

Sutton Foster enchants as Liza.
October 26, 2015
An amusing new TV Land comedy about recapturing lost youth.
October 26, 2015
After a while I could just enjoy Foster being charming and doing her best with the material. It's in no way essential, but if you like the performers involved, you will be okay if you pretend that the pilot doesn't exist.

The series surely delivers, as the incomparable Foster is wont to do.

For a funny, frothy half-hour of comedy, Younger raises a multitude of questions about the pressure women face to hide signs of aging instead of embracing the experience.
April 7, 2015
The gimmick wears thin fairly quickly, but Foster is such a charmer, she practically wills you to invest in the premise.
April 2, 2015
Despite the fact that there's a tired "I'm going to die alone with a cat" joke less than three minutes into the pilot, it's pretty irresistible.
April 2, 2015
While its themes suit the network and its style is reminiscent of past sitcoms, Younger does not feel like a rerun at all. It holds its own with a charming cast of characters, sophisticated and smart writing, and great style.
April 2, 2015
Foster is sweet, wistful, conflicted, exhilarated and exhilarating; she lets the viewer see the 40-year-old inside 26-year-old, but also the 26-year-old unleashed within the 40-year-old.
April 2, 2015
Younger is from Sex and the City creator Darren Star, which in this case means it's a well-done but not earth-shattering excuse to watch actresses wear clothes on location around New York City.
April 2, 2015
While never likely to become as culturally resonant as the exploits of Carrie Bradshaw and her saucy posse, Younger at least doesn't make you feel like a crabby old fogey.
April 2, 2015
Foster is so likable, she makes us care about Liza more than we would have expected.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 2, 2015
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.
