Now she just has to make sure no one finds out the secret only she and her best friend Maggie share.

Review: The guiltiest of guilty pleasures on this list, Younger is an easy and fun watch for when you don’t want to think about anything. Younger isn’t groundbreaking or sensational, but its honest characters, solid premise and sporadic hints at a razor-sharp wit will no doubt hook fans of creator Darren Star’s previous works and should net in a few converts as well. Foster is charismatic and likable, the supporting cast is strong, and the show’s version of NYC is as magical (and unrealistic) as anything Carrie Bradshaw ever experienced.
