‘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)
This show is hilarious as it is inspiring. Two girls, strapped for cash and with little to live for, manage their everyday lives in style and even work towards their dream business selling ‘Max’s Homemade Cupcakes’.
The characters are lovable from Caroline to her opposite Max, from Earl, Han and Oleg at the diner to Sophie, their upstairs neighbour and to all of their friends (and sometimes boyfriends) such as Deke, Johnny, Andy, Luis, Peach and Bebe. The cast playing these wonderful characters are also fabulous: Kat Dennings (Max), Jonathan Kite (Oleg), Beth Behrs (Caroline), Matthew Moy (Han), Garrett Morris (Earl), Jennifer Coolidge (Sophie), Steven Weber (Martin Channing), Nick Zano (Johnny) and Eric Andre (Deke).
Warning: The humour is largely inappropriate and there are a lot of strong sex references. Rating: 15. Other than that, here’s a trailer:
I can’t wait to watch Season 4 for more cupcake craziness. Enjoy!
