Young & Hungry (Quick Review)
Regular readers know that when I’m really busy, TV-watching is usually reduced to shows that I can kind of ‘play in the background’. Nothing too heavy. This week’s lucky contender was Young & Hungry, a sitcom that isn’t exactly laugh-out-loud worthy but will definitely make you feel something.
For me it was one part amusement, one part annoyance. Before I get into that though, here’s what it’s about: Emily Osment stars as “Gabi”, a food blogger who lands the amazing opportunity to work for millionaire tech entrepreneur “Josh” played by Jonathan Sadowski. When Josh thinks his fiancé is leaving him and Gabi’s there with a comforting shoulder, things get hot under the covers . . .until his wifey-to-be comes back. The result is a first season filled with Gabi putting her foot in her mouth, Josh somewhere between being madly in love and acting properly jealous whenever Gabi gets her boots shone (leave it alone guys), and culminates with them both realising they have a deep thing for each other.
Back to the slight annoyance — I’m not a fan of shows that draw story arcs out just for the sake of it and as this happens with the two’s ‘love affair’, I’ve spent some times rolling my eyes at the screen. However, I think the writers are pretty clever with their banter and innuendo.
As for the supporting cast, for the most part the chemistry works: Aimee Carrero plays “Sofia” – Gabi’s best friend and chief ‘no-bullshitter’; Kim Whitley plays “Yolanda” – the straight-shooting housekeeper with enough sass for everyone, including viewers; and Rex Lee plays “Elliot” – Josh’s publicist and best friend, who’s probably in love with him too.
Other than being young and hungry I’ve been . . .
Quickdates (quick updates)

With my book, each episode ends this way but you can continue on until you reach the end of the first season! The first season of this series has been optioned for film. Use the contact form below to send me your Name, Email and preferred format and you’ll get a copy of The Wardens Series Season One completely free. What’s the catch? Simply leave a review on Amazon by September 1 and we’ll call it square ^_^. Additionally, everyone who signs up for this offer, will get to read Episode 6: Home before everyone else. Yup, you read right! So send me your info and we can get started :).
