All they need to do is come up with $250,000 in start-up expenses. Starring Kat Dennings (Thor, Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist) and exciting new discovery Beth Behrs, 2 Broke Girls infuses the classic comedy with something new, current and young, proving life can be fun – even if you're broke.]]>

The series stars Kat Demmings as Max Black, a waitress in a small restaurant in Brooklyn. She's street smart, a little hardened and cynical, and has a bit of a gutter mouth, but underneath that rough and crude exterior, there's a warm caring person. Beth Behrs is Caroline Channing, a slim blonde beauty who bears more than a passing resemblance to Paris Hilton. Caroline's father Martin was convicted and sent to prison for his involvement in a financial scandal (think Bernie Madoff). In the process, the Channing family's financial assets were frozen, leaving Caroline locked out of her luxury apartment, and denied access to her rather substantial trust fund.
The setup for the series is established in the first episode, as a desperate Caroline becomes a waitress at the Williamsburg Diner. Owner Han Lee (Matthew Moy) hires Caroline, teaming her with Max, who is less than enthusiastic with being saddled with someone with zero experience. Also in the restaurant are Oleg (Jonathan Kite) a cook who sexually harasses the girls, and Earl (Garrett Morris, the venerable SNLer) the lovable cashier.Read more ›
This CBS sitcom examines how two 'different' young women attempt to make ends meet in the current American economy. Max (Kat Dennings) has always been working class, but poverty is a new and really unpleasant surprise for Caroline (Beth Behrs). She had been rich, until her family lost all of it's money from dad's ponzi scheme.
The odd-couple friendship successfully works because they are both genuinely likable characters. They are both discovering what the world is currently like while struggling in a low-paying service sector job. This is where the storylines and comedy comes in.
Caroline is gennuinely shocked to discover what a 'public dental clinic' looks like. Or some people must delay obtaining their needed treatment altogether until pain is intolerable.But she proactively realized that selling off her massive wardrobe will bring in lots of needed money for the two roomates to live on. She had already started thrift shopping at the local Goodwill.
Viewers have watched a 'struggling young roommates' storyline many times before but the creators and writers artfully balance out comedy with economic-political reality here. Timely storylines are entertaining.
Becoming low-income is something she had never expected, Caroline is however most challenged when a former boyfriend unexpectedly comes to the dinner where she now works. Having somebody from her former world now seeing her current situation is embarrassing: The rich are not expected to 'work' because of economic wealth and what it means.She however survives to tell the tale.Read more ›
My wife and I first saw her in Thor, and loved her in it (she was really the only part of that movie we liked), and we were pleasantly surprised to see her in 2 Broke girls alongside Beth Behrs -- even though Beth really just serves as the primary thing-to-be-mocked.
Make no mistake, 2 Broke Girls is raunchy. It is NOT for younger viewers. The pilot alone should send that message. And I can see where the claims of racism, etc. come from. But, if you are willing to acknowledge that all sides are getting shot at fairly, and there isn't real racism, sexism or anything else terrible on display (just uncomfortable at times), then you should enjoy the show.
2 Broke Girls certainly pushes boundries, but the show is incredibly funny, and well acted. You can totally side with either girl in any given moment, and it is easy to sympathize with Kat's character "Max" when she shows her tender, emotionally-wounded side sometimes, and it is easy to sympathize with Beth's character "Caroline" -- pretty much all the time.
Yes, the show is raunchy, and yes it can be uncomfortable at times, but it is still hilarious, and like I said, I love Kat Dennings.
