Deeper and Deeper (Younger S01 E06 Shedonism)

younger-jane

This week’s “Younger” episode. “Shedonism” puts Liza in a situation: a party situation. She gets tasked to organize a party for author Annabelle Bancroft, played by Jane Krakowski. That’s always good news – Krakowski is one of my favorites – but I just wished they had a little more imagination as to what character to give her, as I feel her Annabelle Bancroft is not much different from the characters she played in 30 Rock and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. But no matter, she can play this role perfectly even in her sleep. She steals the episode here with a great mix of character and physical expertise – the scene where she bangs her face in glass to get to her coke dealer is comedy gold.  Elsewhere, Liza’s ex-husband shows up and she has to deal with him and more monetary problems and Hillary Duff’s character starts going deeper and deeper into an affair with the Swedish author. But I hardly noticed all the other stories, it was all about Jane last night for me.
