Sassy, streetwise Max 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 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 they first need to raise the start-up money. Written by CBS

An easy to watch, enjoyable show
17 November 2019 | by sprice_boySee all my reviews

Recently got into 2 Broke Girls as it was on Amazon Prime, and have now watched the entire series.

It's basically about two friends, the sarcastic, streetwise and busty Max and kooky riches-to-rags Caroline, who both have aspirations to run their own cupcake business one day, and take on a variety of jobs throughout the show's run to help realise their dream. Mainly they work as waitresses at a diner in Brooklyn, run by their boss and sometimes-nemesis Han, a likeable enough and short Korean man. Also working at the diner are crude Ukranian cook Oleg, and elderly and forgetful Earl, the diner's cashier. Finally, the other main character is Sophie, a Polish neighbour of the girls who frequently visits the gorls at the diner or their apartment. The humour of the show is very crude and in your face, but it's not pretending to be something it's not.

I find the show easy to watch, the story lines are not complicated and the humour is not too clever for its own good, if you want a show that's easy to get into, you can have on in the background with a few laughs guaranteed, give it a go. To be honest, the only thing I don't really like is the character of Sophie, her accent and voice annoy me and the audience cheers every time she enters the diner are slightly baffling to me. I never liked Jennifer Coolidge's characters in Friends or Seinfeld ether, maybe I'm just not a fan of hers.

Anyway, to summarise, it's a crude, in your face show that's pretty easy to watch with not too-confusing plot lines, and features the wonderful Kat Dennings, watch it for her and her ample bosom alone, you'll not regret it.
