5 Reasons We Love Watching: Younger

TVLand used to be the network for your grandmother, so what better than a show that is actually called Younger to change your outlook? The series — about Liza Miller, a 40 year old divorcee who pretends to be 26 in order to get a job in publishing (because they won't hire any ancient 40 year olds) — is undeniably charming. It also reminds us that age discrimination towards women is 100% real, and we therefore are willing to suspend whatever disbelief we have in the premise, and root for Liza to succeed. Younger airs on TVLand on Wednesday nights at 10PM.

5. Hilary Duff is back on TV! While she's certainly had a variety of guest starring roles in recent years, we've all missed Hilary's regular TV presence since the days of Lizzie McGuire:

4. The show reminds us that it's never too late to achieve your dreams. (However, we aren't advocating lying on your resume.):

3. The clothes are on point. Did you know that the costume designer is none other than Patricia Field of Sex and the City fame?:

2. These twentysomethings (and fake twentysomethings) know how to drink! It's just like real life (j/k. Not really!)!:

1. Sutton Foster kills it. Really. She is so insanely talented (and genetically blessed) that the show's preposterous premise doesn't even seem quite so far-fetched.:

Bonus: Nico Tortorella is smokin'. Also, his last name sounds like pasta, which is delicious.

I'm going to watch strictly based off the pasta-sounding last name. Nom.

After reading this I really think I am finally going to check out Younger. A good premise plus HIlary Duff, no way it won't be awesome!

Possibly one of my favourite shows of all time. You forgot to mention Charles who is so swoon-worthy with that smile and those blue eyes... Then I found out the actor who plays him, Peter Hermann, is married to Mariska Hargitay AKA THE OLIVIA BENSON!!!! This show could not have a better cast ♥
