Bring home ‘Younger – The Complete Series’

Category: Blu-ray's and DVD's

In 2015 the series Younger captured the hearts of viewers of all ages. Sutton Foster is adorable as the 40-something woman who is at a crossroads in her life. Now all of the seven seasons along with some bonus material are available in one 10-disc set.

Foster is Liza Miller, a newly single mother getting back into the job market. She has always loved books and publishing and dreamt of a job in that profession. Now it’s time for her to realize her dream. The problem is her age. No one wants to hire a 40-something year old woman. So she decides to pass herself off as a 20-something year old and ends up getting a job as an assistant in an established publishing house. With the help of her old friend Maggie (Debi Mazar) who is an artist and with whom she now lives, her appearance is relatable as a younger woman. And who does not want to look younger?

Liza’s boss Diana (Miriam Shor) is dubious of the younger generation. And soon Liza finds herself working with Kelsey (Hilary Duff) in a new division of the company geared toward millennials. Now not only does Liza have to keep up her appearance as a younger woman, but she also has to learn all the new technology, lingo, and basically this whole new world.

Charles Brooks (Peter Hermann) is the head of the company and is attracted to Liza however he knows he cannot pursue a relationship with a much younger woman. In the meantime Liza meets Josh (Nico Tortorella), a young tattoo artist and the two begin a delightful affair.

How long can she keep up this charade? Juggling her life from the suburbs with the life of a young and free millennial in New York City is a struggle, but Liza enjoys it. And she enjoys being in the business she loves. Publishing is in her heart and she is good at it. As she rises in the company her charade is in jeopardy. But will revealing the truth be the end of her career? And what will it do to her relationships?

This adorable and even addicting series is one to binge over a long weekend. The set comes along with a bookmark (after all, it does center on a publishing company). One side of the bookmark is #teamjosh and the other side is #teamcharles. Which one of these men will she end up with?

While Liza deals with her life and career, the other characters in this show each have their own personal dramas, yet they all intertwine. And Liza is at the center. Ups and downs for every character leave viewers wondering what they will do next and with whom.

The bonus features include deleted scenes and some fun bloopers. It’s clear the actors truly enjoyed each other and had a ball working on the show.

Younger: The Complete Series is not rated however with mature subject matter, visuals, and language, it is definitely not suitable for young viewers. My suggestion is 18+.
