2 Broke Girls: Average in Every Way

I thought that this was a pretty typical episode of 2 Broke Girls, which is nice in the fall because it attracts new viewers. It might have been a little light on the sexual innuendo, but worse things have happened. As is the norm with this series, it is very dated, between the flip phone upgrade requirement and the multiple mentions of crowdsourcing funding from strangers for projects of every type and size. Being evergreen is not a focus for this comedy, however, the lack of activity with anyone other than the title characters gets a little boring. Earl could crack more jokes, Sophie could be a little more exuberant, and Han could absolutely take on more airtime. Not to dis the show, but it could do better.

2 Broke Girls "And the Kickstarter" (S03E02): Max tries to serve a couple of inventors, but they're too wrapped up in candles with arms. [yep, no idea.] It makes Caroline decide to start a Kickstarter of her own to be able to afford some new $1500 pants, but she winds up useing "gofundyourself" instead. [are you KIDDING me with that cost??!?] In order to fund those silk brocade pants, she makes an anonymous video where she offers any $500 donors the chance to slap her, and, sure enough, it works!

The entire situation is annoying Max, so when she is forced to upgrade her flip phone to a smartphone, she doesn't realize she bad-mouths her roommate and business partner with Caroline's number receiving the message. [this is 1999 AIM mistake, guys. you ALWAYS check who you're sending a message to if it trashes someone!] Caroline gets upset that Max talks behind her back, but they eventually make up. [I think Caroline is taking it a little too seriously... she can't possibly believe that nobody ever gets sick of her, right??] Max even takes the bag-headed slap for Caroline. [why?]

Cupcakery Savings Total: $1,010.00 [up $285 somehow...?]
