I don't know what terrible thing I did, but clearly having to watch an entire hour of 2 Broke Girls must have been some sort of CBS-mandated punishment, right? Both "And the Big Opening" and "And the Silent Partner" were forgettable, nonsensical and just plain bad episodes filled with gross sex jokes and lots of fat shaming. In the first installment, I don't understand what the point was of bringing Johnny back. I'd all but forgotten him, and he was never that great of a character nor such a wonderful match for Max that I felt that we were missing something without his presence (can't say the same about Andy, who has an abundance of sexual chemistry with her but barely any with Caroline). As for "And the Silent Partner," I didn't really buy that Caroline would be disgraced by "only" having one small cupcake shop in a popular mall in one of the trendiest parts of New York City, especially at the age of 25 after her family lost all of their money and possessions. But whatever; clearly this show isn't supposed to make sense logistically, so let's just get to the groans:
As is the case with most penultimate episodes, "Leave Me Alone" was primarily a set-up for Girls' Season 1 finale, which we're going into with Hannah and Marnie no longer living together, Jessa maybe actually trying to get her life together and Shoshanna internet dating. None of the storylines are particularly enthralling, but the teaser for next week included Elijah, so my hopes are cautiously high. Until then, let's look at the episode's highs and lows.
Something I really liked about "Hard Being Easy" is that the writers made it clear in this episode that our Girls leads are supposed to be selfish and completely unaware of what other people actually think of them or how they present themselves to the world... who knew?! That said, it wasn't my favorite installment so far this season -- I'd chalk it to up to too little Shoshanna -- though it did finally get me to realize that Jeff (Jessa's babysitting boss who obviously wants to sleep with her) is a dead ringer for Sister Wives star Kody Brown. So there's that. Let's get down to business and look at what did and didn't work.
