Often, I find myself coming back to the same questions after I watch an episode of 2 Broke Girls.
Just when I thought we’d get out of this season nice and peacefully, riding out a wave of mind numbing, lazy comedy like last week’s episode, along comes ‘And the Tip Slip’, which certainly can make its case for the single worst half hour of comedy in 2013.
Tonight’s review of 2 Broke Girls will be a short one.
On a night like tonight, even I can appreciate a terrible show like 2 Broke Girls that allows millions of people to take their minds off the living nightmare at the Boston Marathon.
It’s a major stretch – but if I squint real, real hard, there’s a microbe or two of character in the final half of ‘And the Big Hole’, and it’s presence (whether real or imagined in my head) makes an otherwise lazy episode nearly tolerable.
Inherent in 2 Broke Girls’s premise is this idea that these two girls were perfect for each other, two women whose life experiences and personalities not only made them unique from each other, but brought them together as strangers to become close friends.
Is Max a character anymore? Throughout the second season of 2 Broke Girls, Max has felt less like a three-dimensional person, and more like a checklist of jokes: parents sucked, she’s a whore, let’s do drugs, repeat.
Tonight on 2 Broke Girls: hipster jokes, doll rape… and Andy Dick!
Was this episode supposed to air before or after the Grammys?
At times, the lack of thought that goes into writing a 2 Broke Girls episode is actually impressive – having two character that adhere to the broadest of stereotypes at all times completely prevents the show from having to try and convey any kind of actual emotion beyond proud vulgarity.
