'LAST DAYS OF BOOKS'In between writing a screenplay and packing for a two month long filming, a few days ago I finally managed to catch some free time (I actually said no to Criminal Minds in order to see Younger) to catch up on the last two episodes of my favourite show.
But I must admit (and it hurts me to say this) that I'm not really into this season so far.
It's not as funny as it used to be and almost everything seems to be a bit forced in order to look cool and shiny. But maybe that's just my exhausted head doing the talking. I know it's only been three episodes but I remember watching the past two seasons and having a blast with every single episode.
So far I'm not feeling it.
Right now it's completely obvious that the big romantic plot is gonna be build all around Charles and even though I can't wait to see them together, there's also a big part of me who's strongly cheering for Josh because in this season he's actually more perfect than ever. Please choose Josh.
Most importantly, let's not forget about the elephant in the room - Liza's big secret. I feel like this show cannot go back to the amount of awesomeness it used to have until they decide to resolve this matter and focus on what happens after everyone learns that she's been lying about her age this whole time. To me, at this point, that plot twist is far more important than the good old love triangle.
So in the third episode, during the helicopter ride when Liza freaks out that her friends and co-workers might find out the truth in the most unflattering way, she almost spills it all out and I was like 'yeeees, do it, do it!' but even this time it didn't happen. Blah, once again.
On the other hand, the whole story about their attempt to save the old little bookstore in Liza's hometown was actually lovely and I liked the whole ending of an episode when the owner said that there's no need to feel sad about them not succedding to rescue it, the journey was good while it lasted, so many amazing memories have been created at the place and now it's time to focus on making a new ones.
Hopefully, in that spirit they will continue with the storyline.
If not, I'm afraid that Younger might become one of those shows that fall apart after only a few seasons and that would be such a shame. Please prove me wrong.
