2 Broke Girls: Season Two Thread *spoilers*

Back for Season Two of 2 Broke Girls...

Spoilers allowed for any episode that's aired on CBS.

I liked this first episode, they're off to a good start. I read where the time change from 7:30 to 8:00 (add an hour if you're an eastie) means they can ratchet up the raunch level another step. Hard to imagine how it could get any raunchier, but they're gonna try. I see where one of the upcoming episodes is called "The Pearl Necklace", so maybe they can.

{Oh hush, leaking the name of an upcoming episode for a sitcom is not a spoiler. Sit down and find something else to complain about.}

When Sophie cried out, " I want a golden shower", my wife asked my why the rest of the cast was laughing and making funny faces. I told her to ask her facebook friends what a GS was, but she didn't fall for it. I can't wait for the PN episode.

I wasn't looking at the TV when she made the golden shower comment..... but I heard it and said WTF (but not the abbreviated version of that) and then laughed!

Great episode. I love this show! Did you see the brunette at the Emmy's. She had a great dress, but all I could think was her tata's where going to jump out of her dress!!

Me too. Steven Weber. And I like that they didn't play him as the wronged innocent. He was a thief and they all acknowledge it.

It's funny how Max was creaming for Caroline's dad. On any other show, that would be creepy; on 2 Broke Girls, it fits right in!

The father was fine, but he seemed kind of young to me. I would have expected them to cast a slightly older man for the part.

Some really nice stuff at the auction.

I never heard of this before? I thought as long as it was after prime time, then it was all the same (OTA channels only).

I don't know if they are "allowed" to but they are doing it anyway. From an interview with Beth Behrs (Caroline).

TVLINE | 2 Broke Girls is taking over the Two and a Half Men time slot, airing a half-hour later at 9 o’clock. Does that mean the humor might get even bawdier?

I would venture to say yes. I mean, they let us get away with a lot last year, but so far this year I’ve been shocked by some of the stuff we’re allowed to do. We’ve shot six [episodes] so far and they’re some of the most hilarious, shocking, wonderful ones we’ve had. It’s going to be a really good season.

TVLINE | I’m rather surprised it took [series creator] Michael Patrick King this long to title an episode “And the Pearl Necklace.”

[Laughs] Well…. You’ll have to watch that episode [airing Oct. 1], because it’s not all about what you would think it would be about, but…. Uh….. There’s definitely…. Yes, there is some…. Yes, you hit it on the nose. [Laughs]

My wife didn't understand why "a golden shower" was funny.

We've been married for years, but I was still a bit embarrassed trying to explain it to her. But nowhere near as embarrassed as she when she finally understood what some kinky folks like to do.

Her expression was priceless.

It's after 10pm when there's a true dividing line.

The golden shower joke was just word play, the opening bit with the breast feeding kid was cruder IMO.

I love how they let the characters evolve over the course of last season. When people live together they end up rubbing off on one another, and Max has definitely become more optimistic while Caroline has become a bit more cynical. But not enough that they become too much alike to ruin the comedy.

And it was great how Max was being so cool and aloof and then gets totally charmed by Caroline's Dad. This is going to be a fun season.

I thought he was young too.. But the actor is 51.. and they're both supposed to be late 20s, right? That's perfectly reasonable time-wise then.

He is 24 years older than the actress playing his daughter.

The reveal was kinda weak. In all the previews they had his face covered as he walked out. I expected crowd reaction from the laugh track when Steven Weber walked out, but there was nothing. I just felt like, "We waited for THAT?"

Other than that, I liked the episode. Man, the cook is creepy!

Yeah, I found myself skeptical at that claim too.

20 bills tri-folded to fit in the 57mm wide can is about 6mm thick, and the can is only 20mm deep.

One of my biggest laughs actually came from one of the cleanest jokes.

When they entered the auction and Max introduced Caroline as "Zooey Deschanel" I had to laugh, because the moment she appeared on screen in that particular wig and that particular dress, my first thought was that she looked remarkably like this:



They then morphed the joke to imply that she looked like any generic young brunette Hollywood star. She didn't look anywhere near as much like any of the other names they came up with as she did like Zooey.

I agree. I thought the joke was that we never saw the father. I expected when we finally did it would be someone a little more famous than this guy.

You do realize he's been on tv in one form or another for the last 20 years, he may not be a big star, but I'd say he's pretty famous.

$20k in an Altoids can was more likely $1k bills. Given the flashy lifestyle they were leading that makes more sense.

I'm no prude but I gave up on this show because it's just too blue for me. Especially for its time slot.

Whatever you do, don't look at the latest episode of South Park.
