watching: younger

Darren Starr surprised us with Sex and the City in 1998, and then tried unsuccessfully to foist its knock-off, Cashmere Mafia, on suspicious audiences ten years later. In 2015 he did finally shepherd a worthy successor to his signature series: Younger, a breezy, glittering half-hour on TV Land (of all goddamn places) that I’ve quietly been enjoying for the past year. And while Younger deserves credit for being very much its own thing, it also manages to revive and update the cynical-yet-hopeful esprit de corps that made Sex and the City such an emblem of its pop cultural moment twenty years ago.
