I can’t believe the2 Broke Girlsseason finale is already upon us. It doesn’t seem possible. This freshman CBS comedy has been a great addition to their successful line up. I look forward to seeing what laughs and tricks the girls bring to their sophomore season in the fall.
Until then, I will have to enjoy the one hour two part finale guest starring Martha Stewart.
Is it just me, or did the girls’ waitress uniforms get a little shorter?
2 Broke Girls “And The Very Christmas Thanksgiving” was a great episode of the show. Recently the series has been focusing on Max and her relationship with Johnny, which lead to Max’s relationship with Caroline taking a side seat. However, tonight’s episode brings Max and Caroline’s growing friendship to the forefront.
I always enjoy when the series discusses how Caroline is doing. I can’t imagine going from having everything to nothing and handling it as well as she does. It was nice that through exhaustion, disappointment and realization, she had a momentary melt down. No one expects her to be brave and levelheaded all the time. I think having the cupcake business (well trying to start it) is a distraction to keep Caroline from realizing everything that has happened to her. However, when she does realize how much she has lost, she always remembers what she does have. I think that is very important and a great message.
I love the relationship that Max and Caroline share, and how much they both appreciate each other. Tonight’s episode shows the greedy/money side to the holidays, but also the caring and giving that it really should be about.
I have been a fan of 2 Broke Girls since the pilot, but my appreciation for the show has started to fade slightly. I’m not sure if the writers are running out of content and relying more on sexual related jokes over other humor than they had earlier in the season, or if the jokes are just getting old.
Over the passed two episodes, I’ve noticed the abundance of over used sexual jokes and references that I don’t remember in earlier episodes. Some were funny the first time, but when the joke was used repeatedly over the course of the episode, it got stale. Last week brought us the vagina bed and tonight’s episode brought several penis and 69 related jokes. These jokes can be funny if used correctly, but misplaced or over used makes them feel crude rather than funny.
Although the humor in “And Hoarder Culture” was lacking, the drama aspect of the story was far more interesting. Viewers were privy to seeing a couple different sides of Kat Dennings’ Max, who usually only shows her witty, sarcastic defense mode. Kat Dennings and the writing surrounding her character were the only things that saved this episode. We saw the sarcastic tough exterior that we’ve known, but we also saw her experience joy, sadness, love, and broken heartedness. The emotional journey she experienced over the course of the 22 minute episode was interesting and well done.I look forward to seeing how this effects her character in the future, now that she opened herself up and was rejected (sort of).
While “And Hoarders Culture” failed to deliver comedy, it delivered story and character development. In the long run, story and character development are less important than the humor for this type of television series, but for an episode here or there, it serves to enhance the show.
