With that being said, I think the show has gotten much worse in having obnoxious characters. Yes, Olig and Sophie had always been obnoxious, but now they are making Han an obnoxious hipster, instead of a late trend follower. Caroline has taken a really obnoxious turn as well. Which in itself wouldnt be that bad, but Beth has lousy comedic timing for those more goofy jokes. Max has always been Max. Other than Earl, she is the only character that has not changed.
I really think the move to 9/8c was not good for the show. The biggest difference at teh beginning of the season was the jokes were a lot more blue and edgy. I think that made a lazy writing staff even more lazy. Why write plot, when we can toss in another rape joke?
2 Broke Girls has gone from a guilty pleasure for me to background noise while making dinner.
