You know how there are just some shows that you know you are going to love, before you even see the first episode? That’s how I was with 2 Broke Girls. Heck, even the title is funny, right? It instantly brought back memories of my college days in Boston. We used to love going out on the town, but even back in the nineties (ouch, I feel old!) going out was expensive.
I can remember wanting to go out with one friend of mine near the end of the month when there wasn’t much left in the checking account. We wanted to “go some place nice” for dinner, not just grab a burger or eat Ramen in our rooms. We quickly figured out that we couldn’t afford a nice restaurant that weekend, so we ate at the cafeteria and then got dressed up and plopped down in a ritzy bar somewhere near Copley Square. We each had about enough money to buy one drink, and we nursed those babies for hours! Hey, at least we got our nice night out – and without spending too much too!
If you can relate to my story at all, you would probably love 2 Broke Girls. (Although I don’t recommend watching while the kiddos are still up – it’s definitely grown-up humor!) I love the whole debutante and girl-from-the streets juxtaposition and the supporting characters at the diner where they work add a lot to the show as well. The whole story of two girls trying to start their own business has a ring of familiarity with me too. Basically, trust-fund baby Caroline has lost her fortune due to her father’s Wall Street scandal. She met up with sassy waitress, Max, who also turns out to be an amazing cupcake baker and together they are working toward raising the $250,000 they need to start up their own business. Each week end with a tally of how much they have saved so far.
2 Broke Girls is moving to a new time on Mondays at 8:30/7:30 c. That reminds me – I better go check and make sure my DVR mad the necessary adjustments so I don’t miss the next episode when the girls are going to come up with their own take on the Cronut – Cake Fries!!
