Primeiras Impressões Younger

Bringing back Sutton Foster, who has become a fan favorite of Bunheads, and Hilary Duff, comes the comedy premiere Youngerchannel TV Land.

Satirizing the current scenario of the job market, where the older and more experienced are being replaced by younger bosses, creating the need to update themselves in the trends to be employed in good positions,  Younger show us the life of Liza Miller (Sutton Foster), a woman in her 40s that all she was being in life was a mother and wife. Now divorced, Liza realizes she is meaningless in life, too focused on her daughter's life,Caitlin (Tessa Albertson)  who is in the last year of college, on exchange in India and so decides to go back to work. But soon in her first interview, Liza discovers that it's all reversed, young people of entry-level age are taking the highest positions and bossing people of Liza's age, who are being quickly replaced.

Liza had already given up hope when on a night out with her friend Maggie (Debi Mazar) knows Josh (Nico Tortorella), a 26-year-old who takes an interest in her, judging by their appearance that they are the same age. Maggie then advises Liza to take advantage of the situation and pretend to be 26 again. With the help of a little makeup and a hair change, Liza convinces her that she's in her early twenties and gets her job, working for Diana Trout (Miriam Shor), who is basically the same age as Liza, but because he thinks she is much younger, he makes it clear that he will make her life hell. Now we will follow the saga of Liza, who with the help of her new co-worker Kelsey (Hilary Duff), will have to convince everyone that she's young and attuned to social media (including Josh, whom she decided to give a try).

The premise is very original and Foster delivers a role that suits her well, we already know that the actress is good in the 'innocent clumsy' way. Hilary, on the other hand, delivers the same role as always, with the same face (really the same, since she played Lizzie she hasn't aged at all) and expression. During the pilot we have some funny references, but nothing that makes us roll with laughter. In short, it's a nice series to watch and relax, but nothing that will stand out as the best comedy of the year. The delicate plot ends up leaving the series very close to crossing the limits in jokes, bordering on prejudice in some scenes, but it is something that was well managed and I believe that nothing serious happened.

As I've said before and I'll say it again: comedy is made to amuse. What's not funny for some may be for others and as long as it has a good premise, it can convince. I don't know if Younger will be able to go far with Liza trying to pass herself off as young, but it's a light comedy that I liked in this pilot and I intend to see where it goes.
