Just saw Kat Dennings in Thor. She pulls off the cute/nerdy look quite well.

This show reminds me of Laverne and Shirley

Can anyone tell me the name of the song they were dancing to in the townhouse?

Yes, I totally agree!! She is the only reason I am still watching

I initially thought that I couldn't possibly like this kind of show, but it is actually quite enjoyable. The two lead actresses are perfect for their respective roles, and they each offer a different kind of appeal for the male audience.

Well, I'm the opposite on this one. I loved the pilot, but for me, it has entered an unfunny death spiral since then. This last episode was not only unnecessarily crude, but not funny for the most part (there were rare snippets, like the dance). This is no longer on my watch list, though I love the blonde - not so much on the brunette.

With a whole lot of 'Alice' thrown in to the mix.

What is old, is new again.

I wonder if Whitney Cummings is now wishing she had starred in this vehicle instead of her self title train wreck?

I was kind of surprised at the "wad" line. I am not sure if there is a line to "crude" references or inferences but if there is I think they are getting close. There seemed to be a weird look on the actress' face even saying the line, kinda like she was uncomfortable.

Ok, episode. Some funny moments, some not.

I know it won't work, but I'll say it anyway... Is that because your head is right there?

I think the show's rhythm has been improving and as such everything flows much better. Regarding the crude joke I thought it was funny. Not the joke itself but the actors trying to stay in character... the blonde came pretty close.

I'm done. The boobs alone aren't enough to keep me watching.
post #78 of 585
Another funny episode. Look forward to this show every week.
post #79 of 585
There certainly is plenty of crude stuff in there, tho I wonder if all of the sexual innuendo will start to wear thin. I can sort of see people saying it's the modern version of Laverne and Shirley.

They're really pushing the envelope on crude sexual ... um... jokes.
Hard to believe they get away with some of what was on the last ("And the Disappearing Bed") episode on OTA network TV.

I agree. Especially for the 8:30 pm time slot. Two episodes ago they were nonstop and this week one beyond the in your face reference. I have zero issue with it although I can see a lot of people having issue with it... must be a lot of preteens in the demographics tuning in.

“I think our tolerance for what is edgy is changing,” said Ms. Cummings, who, besides writing her own comedy for NBC, also wrote “Two Broke Girls” with Michael Patrick King, a longtime producer and writer of “Sex and the City.” “We’re getting a little desensitized, so sometimes you have to be more and more shocking because now you have YouTube and the Internet and all the rest that’s available for us to watch.”

Ms. Cummings has a special place in this year’s vagina-theme season, having worked on two of the shows using the word.

“If one day passes without me writing any more vagina jokes, my career is blown,” she said jokingly. “Vagina jokes paid for my house.”

With many of the shows yet to have their premieres, it is too early for the Federal Communications Commission to note any surge in complaints about language in them, and so officials there declined to comment. CBS did not report an unusual number of complaints about “Two Broke Girls” on Monday night.

It's hilarious how this is a problem with all the other crap that is... "acceptable" these days. You make it sound like 10 yr olds still have their innocents these days... lol...

I wouldn't know since I have zero kids. At the same time especially this week there was no way to take the beyond crude joke any other way. How would a kid not ask their parents what are they talking about? What could they tell them? It is OTA network programming at 8:30 pm. What would you tell your 8 year-old if she asked?

I simply find it a large jump from other shows (in recents years) and as I originally stated I don't have an issue with it. I'm just guessing it becomes one.

We like the show a lot, glad it got picked up.

I would NOT feel comfortable watching this show with my preteen girls. While I don't mind the jokes IMO they are NOT pre/early teen material. Of course neither are shows like the Simpsons or Family Guy which I've seen but are not currently watching.
With the hiatus of Cougar Town this is becoming one of our favorite 1/2 comedies Although P&R is still tops

I'm not stupid enough to have kids. Although, I know lots of people let their kids watch South Park. I recently saw idiocracy and since the beginning sums up how I feel about these days I'll just reference that...

When you need jokes and can't write clever ones, crude humor is the result. The impact becomes a combination of humor and shock. To often lazy writers resort to increasing the shock element at the expense of the humor, cause it's the easiest of all.

Evidence the balls jokes. They milked four or five jokes out of one decent one.

No, I'm not a prude. It's just that I've gotten over the shock element of crude humor many years ago. I'm in it now for the funny part.

It made me think of the SNL schweddy balls sketch. Four minutes from a 15 second joke. Of course that's just my take. Apparently enough thought it "clever" that there is now an ice cream.

I saw it more as an inside joke... how many times can they repeat themselves (and get away with it).

Balls jokes are funny.
