TV Corner: Younger, Season 3 / Episodes 02 & 03

'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.

  1. ponekad je tako sa serijama...nove sezone su nekad neodržive. Ne znam zašto je tomu tako, ili se netko ulijeni ili je jednostavno teško neku priču održati jednako zanimljivom, a možda su i pritisci na pisce scenarije od strane Tv kuće.... tko zna...možda se odjednom popravi pa opet u njoj budeš jednako uživala. Možda su ove tri epizode samo priprema za nešto, ali bolje im je da to nekako riješe, ne može žena vječno skrivati godine...to ne bi imalo smisla.

    1. Uvijek su te treće sezone kritične i stvarno rijetko koja serija uspije održati zanimljivost, ali sam se baš nadala da ova neće zapeti, kad ono...Ali nada umire zadnja, vidjeti ćemo što nosi ovaj tjedan, ponekad sezona naprosto loše krene pa onda negdje na polovici dobije novi uzlet :)

    2. da:) ja se sjećam jednoga dobroga filma s Kirstie Alley na temu godina i naše percepcije istih. Ona je tom filmu scenaristica/spisateljica koja ne može pronaći posao jer svi misle da je prestara pa nagovori svoga nećaka koji ima oko dvadeset godina da njena djela prestavi kao svoja i naravno on postaje jako popularan...ali ne sjećam se više kako je film završio, trebala bi ga ponovo pogledati.

  2. I'm seriously DYING to see this show. I'm sorry to hear that Season 3 isn't living up to your expectations - that's how I felt about Season 4 of The Walking Dead. Hopefully it redeems itself soon!

    P.S. Apologies for not responding to your comments over the past week or so. My Internet went down on Friday, and it only just started working again {after repairs from the technician}. So glad to have it back - and to visit your blog again! :)

    1. I'm so hoping that the upcoming episodes won't be so average, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for both of our shows! :)

      Oh honey, it's ok, don't worry about it! I'm glad to hear your Internet is back on, welcomeee back! :))

  3. Nisam gledala tu seriju pa ti nisam najbolji sagovornik na tu temu, ali da, baš je bezveze kad se pojavi neka loša sezona. Razumem da nije lako uvek biti na visini zadatka, ali nekad je možda bolje i prekinuti nego snimati po svaku cenu. Ipak se nadam da će krenuti ka boljem. Ja sam tako npr. bila opsednuta serijom Arrow, a poslednje sezone gledam skoro na silu :/ Sad gledam Twin Peaks i prija mi taj ambijent iz 90-ih, krimi priča i malo uvrnut smisao za humor :D

    1. Ja isto nisam u toku, ali te kužim...potpisujem Tijanu jer sam ja odustala od puno serija jer krenu razvlačiti ili jednostavno postane bezveze...od Arrowa sam tako i odustala jer su svi toliko bili opsjednuti s Oliverom i Felicity da mi je pozlilo! :P
