Aside from the same scheduling complaints I have for Hawaii Five 0 (and all other CBS shows), “And the Drug Money” was a great episode of the freshman comedy. When Max and Caroline are in need of some quick cash, they enter a drug trial in order to make $500 each.
In “And the Spring Break” Caroline and Max take a break from the diner and life by spending a small vacation dog sitting for a rich gay couple in their lavished apartment.
“And the One-Night Stands” offered a delightful episode of 2 Broke Girls as Caroline and Sophie deal with their one night stands, and Max plans a birthday party.
2 Broke Girls latest installment “And the Kosher Cupcakes” brought Max and Caroline a cupcake job for a Hebrew bar mitzvah.
2 Broke Girls honored Garrett Morris this week, by featuring the first Earl centric episode of the series. So far, Earl has been more of a background character, but it was great to see him a more significant role.
After a couple weeks on hiatus, 2 Broke Girls started off strong with “And the Blind Spot.” I have a few minor criticisms about the episode, but as a whole, the episode was well done.
When their neighbor upstairs is found dead, Caroline decides it’s time to meet the other people in the building. However, things don’t go well when she finds the man across the hall wearing a dog collar being pulled on a leash by someone off screen. Things get more uncomfortable when a new woman moves in above them. The girls are caught in a big misunderstanding when they assume their new upstairs neighbor is a prostitute.
While “And the Upstairs Neighbor” was quirky and had its moments, as a whole I wasn’t feeling it. It seemed to lack some of the show’s charm. Perhaps it was the predictability of the plot, but the episode left me unsatisfied.
After a very short winter hiatus, 2 Broke Girls returned with a busy episode. “And the Secret Ingredient” had its moments, but overall, the episode didn’t impress me. Between the many storylines being told, and the lack of connection I felt with said storylines, something about tonight’s episode left me wishing it hadn’t come back just yet. The freshman drama has been very successful thus far, so a few less than desirable episodes here and there are expected.
There were four stories being told throughout the course of the episode.
“And the Pop-Up Sale” marked the mid-season finale for CBS’s freshman comedy 2 Broke Girls. Like every episode prior, the girls must work through a certain situation, to better themselves and their future cupcake business.
Last night, the girls decided they needed a new oven, as there’s rarely lit and was becoming a danger. When Max says they can’t afford a new oven, Caroline pulls out a secret stash of expensive one of a kind designer rings. While I find this a plausible storyline, why wait until this point to bring them up. Several weeks ago, the girls were struggling to buy a mixer which is far less expensive than a new oven. Also, last week, they could have used that money to work something out with Chestnut.
Regardless, the oven problem brought to light the question as to what extent and duration Caroline and Max’s relationship would last. Max who has never had anything good in her life, expects Caroline to leave her, just like everything else she’s had. When Caroline’s old friends threaten their relationship, Max relies on her tough exterior to push Caroline away. Although on the exterior she is cold, it is easy to see the heartache and betrayal she is feeling.
When I first saw previews for tonight’s episode of 2 Broke Girls entitled “And the Reality Check,” I was a bit thrown off when the previews made it seem like Max was unattached to Chestnut. In fact, through the course of the season we’ve seen Max bond more with the horse than Caroline.
Over the course of the episode however, this issue is put into context and is handled well. I don’t think the previews for the episode did the story any justice, but in the end, at least the episode itself kept a sense of continuity.
“And the Reality Check” isn’t my favorite episode of the show, but it was a necessary one. There are so many aspects of the series that are unrealistic, but at least they addressed the issue of having a horse in New York City. I was beginning to wonder what state the horse was in, being that it never gets to go out, and how they were going to keep caring for it through the winter.
I was disappointed that we didn’t really get to see Caroline say goodbye (for now) to her horse. The way she talks about him, he means the world to her, but we never really see her bonding with him. The scene between Max and the horse was beautiful. I hope we do get to see more of the girls with the horse, and perhaps more interactions from Peaches and Caroline. There is something about their fake rich media friendship that I find hilarious.
While I didn’t catch/find all the Real House Wife references, as I have never seen an episode of any incarnation of the franchise, the hipster Instagram joke was spot on. I remember when people first started using it, and was like that’s cool, but five minutes later, and its everywhere. Take a normal photo people. I am very sick of Instagram.
