1 Work in Younger (TV)
My friend was amused when I described Younger as "milk and cookies." It's a show that has a fairly simple setup with a central secret (the lead character Liza is 15 years older than she pretends to be), and an ongoing set of characters with no major dramas in their lives. It has neither particularly good nor particularly bad writing, but set in the NYC publishing industry as it is, I daresay it has very little resemblance to the reality. So while I wasn't all that engaged with it, it was one of those shows that's easy to watch if one is doing other things.
That is until S4 Ep5, "The Gift of the Maggie." In short, this episode was all about appropriation and the view of fans was pretty infuriating.
