'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: Friends with questionable benefits

It’s the "friends with benefits" tale as old as time. Well, it’s at least a tale as old as the pair of romantic comedies from 2011 about the precarious arrangement. Adding a new spin on the story, Young & Hungry’s Gabi and Josh introduce the revolutionary yet slightly psychotic idea of a Sex Punch Card™ (copyright Gabi Diamond, 2016). The season finale picks up where Gabi and Josh left off: naked in bed, post regrettable make-up, spur-of-the-moment sex. Theirs is a love story built on true fire and passion. Kidding, but one of these days, they do have to get it together and stop avoiding the inevitable. The question is: How much longer will they allow their issues to ruin their chance for actual romance? READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: Mismatched matchmaker madness

We all saw it coming, whether we believed in their breakup or not. We all knew that Gabi and Josh couldn’t keep their hands to themselves much longer, and a friendly game of high-stakes speed dating only expedited their unavoidable connection. We see what you’re doing, Young & Hungry. And it’s perfect. Ever since Gabi and Josh broke up and vowed to remain friends and coworkers, somewhere in the distance, a countdown clock was ticking. They would inevitably slip up and succumb to the sexual tension, the same tension that had them waking up the morning after they met asking, "Huh?" Well, time’s up. All it took was a bet and a bribe — how all great ’90s teen movies begin. But will Gabi and Josh have the same nostalgic ending, complete with the Sixpence None the Richer soundtrack? Fingers crossed. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: The devil wears clickbait

As the title of the episode suggests, this one isn’t about Gabi and her tendency to make a mess. For once, it’s about Sofia and her tendency to make a mess. "Young & Sofia" acts as the backdoor pilot for a Young & Hungry spinoff starring Aimee Carrero and Ashley Tisdale. Although it would be set in the same world as Gabi and the gang, Sofia would finally be able to shine on her own as she follows her newly discovered passion for journalism. If Young & Hungry without Sofia is unimaginable to you, imagine her as the face of her very own show. Aimee Carrero is far too talented to be the sidekick anymore. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: Lucky strike

When Gabi entered her aunt’s blueberry sour-cream pie in a relative recipe contest, she never could have imagined that she would win the competition or that she’d be forced to reconcile with her estranged family member. She also never could have imagined that her aunt would become a completely different person than she remembered. Young & Hungry has been one of the most diverse and inclusive shows on the air since the day it began. Even in its fourth season, it continues to open doors that most shows barely crack. "Young & Bowling," while obviously still humorous, tackled weighty subject matter that walked the tightrope between respectful and offensive. But not once did it teeter into distaste. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: The cook blocker and the dirty rocker

This week, Young & Hungry zigs when we think it will zag. When Gabi and Sofia withstand the incessantly loud music of their upstairs neighbor and he ends up being: 1) cute and 2) British, odds are Gabi will make a play for his affections. But not so fast … It’s Sofia’s turn for a catch of the week, but it seems like with Gabi and Sofia, a catch of the week translates to mistake of the week. Who can’t relate to getting caught in weekly — who are we kidding, daily — mishaps? (Unfortunately, these mishaps don’t always have an accent and are usually more of the "I spilled coffee on my beige car interior" variety.) Fittingly, Sofia’s plans to sweep Upstairs Rick (Faking It’s Gregg Sulkin) off his feet don’t pan out quite as swiftly as she imagined. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: Stoned soulmates and sassy tweens

When you’re expecting life to hand you lemons, sometimes life just might be fresh out. Sometimes life will hand you a lime, an orange, or perhaps a grapefruit. Similarly, when you’re expecting to foster a three-year-old, sometimes a sassy tween arrives at your doorstep instead. Young & Hungry prepared Elliott and Alan for fatherhood by teaching Elliott how to camp, but learning how to rough it in the wilderness could never prepare Elliott for Keisha. Already weathered from the foster system, Keisha’s none too pleased to find herself in the hands of a gay couple who were anticipating a toddler and will probably put her card back in the deck and go fish again. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: Pig wars

Gabi, Gabi, Gabi …. Once again, Gabi proves that being a hot mess isn’t just a way of life. It can be an enviable artform if you really believe in yourself. When Mr. Fancy fires the diner’s manager for holding an herb that notably wasn’t oregano, Gabi is first in line to snag the higher-paid position. But she’ll have to fend off Sofia, who previously scored a waitressing job thanks to Gabi. The war for manager is brief, due in part to Mr. Fancy’s pervy hiring process. Gabi gets the job based on looks, even though Sofia has experience and a degree. America! READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: Giada De La-drama

One month after their category-four breakup, Young & Hungry finds Gabi and Josh slumming it in dire straits. No longer employed by Josh, Gabi punches the clock as a fry cook at a greasy spoon diner. And without Gabi to prepare him balanced meals, Josh has packed on the pounds post-split. Clearly, neither of them have won the breakup. But they don’t have a second to spare when it comes to making the other believe they have. It’s Yolanda’s 50th birthday (though her birth certificate may tell a different story), and Gabi and Josh are eager to make their current states appear less depressing before they reunite at the big celebration. Enter Gabi’s ever-loyal friend in waiting: A good old-fashioned fabrication. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: The hurricane-force winds of change

What was the missing ingredient in Gabi’s Hawaiian hookup mess? An actual hurricane to symbolize the rabid chaos swirling around Young & Hungry. Gabi’s latest Josh-related controversy began with a chance meeting on an airplane, continued with an unplanned kiss, and will end in heartbreak. But who’s heart will break? For one, Elliott’s heart temporarily breaks after Alan fails to save his life during high tide. Nearly swallowed by the sea, Elliott laments having to be saved by Yolanda — of all people — rather than his own husband. Alan once again doesn’t save Elliott’s life while he’s choking on a chunk of pineapple during a disagreement. Instead, Alan misreads his signs for the Heimlich maneuver as aggressive gesticulations, and Yolanda steps in to save Elliott. READ MORE...

'Young & Hungry' catch of the week: A handsome hookup in Hawaii

For someone who knows how to cook, Young & Hungry’s Gabi sure hasn’t mastered the recipe for not only finding but maintaining a healthy relationship. A healthy meal? Sure. But a stable relationship with Josh? Forget about it. Those two can’t seem to stoke more than a low boil. Seeing as Young & Hungry has proven that you can take the mess out of the kitchen, but you can’t take the mess out of the chef, it doesn’t appear as though Gabi and Josh will get it together any time soon. Until they definitively answer "will they or won’t they," let’s revel in their fresh catches of the week. Because we know they have a few more disastrous dates in them while their relationship preheats. READ MORE...
