Broad City is like a funnier less brotastic version of Workaholics. The main characters from the two shows are essentially interchangeable. I ultimately end up respecting Abbi and Ilana from Broad City more than the guys from Workaholics because it must've been a lot harder for them get their show greenlit. I'm actually not entirely certain why it's so much funnier to me to watch a show centered around women when they are pretty much doing the exact same thing as a show centered around men. Either way the first season is only 10 eps long and can be plowed through in 2 afternoons (or in one 3 and a half hour long session if you're really that into it), and is absolutely worth watching. I laughed more during the last 3 days watching this show than I did for entire seasons worth of other similarly lauded programs (cough....Veep...Modern Family....cough), so I'd probably put this one up there with Louie and Archer as best comedies currently on the idiot box.
Also, and I don't know if this matters, but Amy Poehler produces and directs a lot of the episodes.
YO. Modern Family has dipped a bit but VEEP is awesome. It's a show that too clever for its own good (BOOYAAAH I WENT THERE, but I can see it not sitting with people).
Broad City is awesome. 'Girls' felt a little too much for me (sometimes it's good, sometimes it's a little pretentious), so I'm glad BC picks up on being just more for straight shits and giggles without the occasional drama that Girls needs to add. A lot of it is true in terms of the gross stuff, but then I love when it goes into full "NYC odysseys" where absolute bizarre shit happens -- and it's awesome. Great show.
wait...so the "nature's pocket" thing is real???
