You know, after so many horribly offensives outings last season on 2 Broke Girls, I was expecting much worse from "And the Hidden Stash." While I wouldn't exactly call the Season 2 premiere great, it had a beginning, middle and end that fit together, and wasn't completely horribly racist at all times -- progress!
IFC is doing a serious media blitz for Season 2 of Portlandia and there's a good reason why: the Fred Armisen-Carrie Brownstein vehicle is pretty damn funny and only improving with time. Perhaps the campaign has drawn the attention of those who aren't usually fans of IFC shows or shy away from anything that looks this hipster-y. If you're amongst that crowd, I encourage you to give it a shot (new installments return tonight at 10 PM, and if you Like its Facebook page, you can even watch the full second episode for free, right now) , especially if you like, hate or have any kind of opinion on CBS' 2 Broke Girls. Here's why it's worth your time:
You have to be cautious when you recommend 2 Broke Girls to a family member, friend or co-worker. Sure, maybe the pilot made you giggle, but if a person randomly tuned into "And Strokes of Goodwill," they might assume you're a racist, raunch-loving freak who watches that terrible CBS show that comes on before Two and a Half Men. Forever more, your taste level will be scrutinized and people will think of you differently. It's a bad scene (and a true story).
The commercials for this show featuring Beth Behrs getting shot in the face with whipped cream don't do this comedy any favors. In fact, shticky things like that were what made me fear this show. That and the fact that Whitney Cummings is a producer and Whitney was one of the most godawful pilots I've ever seen. But if you can put aside those things and just watch 2 Broke Girls, you'll find that it's actually quite amusing, largely thanks to the deadpan delivery of the incredible Kat Dennings.

The insanity of Fall TV is in full swing, and while we're busy judging shows as a whole, a lot of the new and returning shows really have us puzzled with some of the unusual choices they are making. We'll likely never get these answers, but we pose the questions that really have us stumped.
