2 Broke Girls sets itself apart with its sex and foul language which is a breath of fresh air in a somewhat stagnant television lineup.
Film making 4/5
Bonus Features 2/5
Recommendation 4/5 Stars
2 Broke Girls stars the foul mouthed Max played by Kat Dennings and the fallen rich girl Caroline played by Beth Behrs. 2 Broke Girls follows the tale of two would be cupcake entrepreneurs who struggle to raise enough money to fund their business.
The episodes end with a total of the current cash on hand toward their business but it’s the journey and not the destination that is fun. 2 Broke Girls Season 2 even sees them get their dream business through a series of lucky breaks but the dream comes to a screeching halt when their business runs into a serious setback.
Just when the pair of hot business enthusiasts start in on their dream of Max’s Homemade Cupcakes the shop gets an offer to vacate and an insurance scam. The half hour episodes include plenty of humor that does come close to the line but on the other side of it.
Kat Dennings is quick with the sarcasm while Beth Behrs adds sophistication to the diner waitress couple that adds a lot to the show. 2 Broke Girls has a wicked sense of humor and does add a lot of politically incorrect humor which is probably why I like it.
2 Broke Girls: The Complete Second Season has 24 half hour episodes on the DVD edition with very good video and audio quality but not perfect. Quality for both video and audio are without any really memorable problems but being a DVD the quality is not perfect.
The Complete Second Season of 2 Broke Girls has four extras on the three disc set with the one feature “Max’s Homemade Cupcakes: Go Big or Go Broke!” being the best. The gag reel is short while the deleted scenes are average and the Sophie Kaczyinski extra is merely a quick talk with the oddball star as her character.
The “…Go Big or Go Broke!” piece is a half hour series of interviews about the show and character development which is the only really worthwhile piece of bonus content. The extras are not a great part of the DVD edition and the one does make things better but it would be nice to have more bonus features.
2 Broke Girls is a funny sitcom but it also crosses lines a lot which makes it risqué which may be a reason it is so popular. Two hot girls also add to the show’s popularity but I think it the wit and humor that keep people coming back for more.
2 Broke Girls: The Complete Second Season is a great show and with the third season firmly in production the series is going strong.
