I’m back for a second round of “What’s on?“, where we take a 180° degree turn from horror to comedy with CBS’s newest hit show, 2 Broke Girls!
Genre: comedy / Seasons (so far): 1 / Status: currently on tv
“2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about two young women waitressing at a greasy spoon diner who strike up an unlikely friendship in the hopes of launching a successful business – if only they can raise the cash. Sassy, streetwise Max Black works two jobs just to get by, one of which is waiting tables during the night shift at the retro-hip Williamsburg Diner. Sophisticated Caroline Channing is an uptown trust fund princess who’s having a run of bad luck that forces her to reluctantly give waitressing a shot.
At first, Max sees Caroline as yet another in a long line of inept servers she must cover for, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she sees a lucrative future for them, but first they need to raise the start-up money. While they save their tips, they’ll stay at the restaurant, working with Oleg, an overly flirtatious Russian cook; Earl, a 75-year-old kool-kat cashier; and Han Lee, the new, eager-to-please owner of the diner. Working together, these two broke girls living in one expensive city might just find the perfect recipe for their big break.”summary & pics by cbs.com
What do you get when you put a naive cheerful blonde from the Upper East Side and a sarcastic grumpy brunette from Brooklyn together? A darn good show! These two girls couldn’t be any more different, and yet they are so compatible. While Max helps Caroline get a taste of what it’s really like in the ‘real’ world, Caroline shows Max that it’s okay to dream and more importantly, try to achieve your dreams.
Together they start to save up money to build their own cupcake business. Soon Caroline discovers that making money isn’t that easy when you have to start from scratch and they barely make enough money to get by. Of course this series is more than just troubles and struggles. It’s topped with an extra layer of comedy, also thanks to a number of hilarious figures that appear on the show like Oleg, the over-flirtatious cook from Ukrain, and Peach, the germ-freak socialite.
Watch the trailer below to get a preview of the show! (Notice the hipster- & rich people jokes!)
