I’ve recently finished watching 2 Broke Girls Seasons 1 – 3, so guess what? That’s what I’m recommending today.
‘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!
This week I don’t just want to rave about one TV show, so here are my top 5 favourites of right now:
My entire household loves NCIS, that’s me, my parents and my granddad, and a lot of my friends also watch NCIS avidly. We’ve been watching odd episodes here and there on several TV channels and now my Dad has recently purchased Seasons 1 – 8 on DVD so that we can finally watch them in order. I think one reason why the show is so good is because of its characters; their relationships are what keep the audience interested after all.
2. Death in Paradise.
This is a brilliant BBC One show. It’s set on the fictional Caribbean island of Saint-Marie and is currently into its fourth season. The show follows the islands police and homicide detectives who solve various murders. Again, I think the characters are what keep the audience watching.
This show is so flawlessly put together with an amazing cast displayed so stylishly that it’s hard not to be enthralled in it. It is a very popular show but if you are in the minority and don’t know what it’s about, it follows corporate lawyer Harvey Specter and his relationship with fraudulent lawyer Mike Ross.
4. Happy Endings.
I feel like this show has been underrated and thus only spanned three seasons from 2011 until 2013. It is staged alike popular shows such as Friends, and How I Met Your Mother, with a cast of six friends following their various relationships and comic problems. I enjoy this show so much and as thus have been trying to buy the seasons on DVD.
5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
My final recommendation today is, of course, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I couldn’t not mention Buffy as it will always be my favourite TV Show. Although it has been little over a decade since Joss Whedon ended the series, it is never too late to start watching it. I remember when I was a lot younger, that I watched Buffy with my Dad but I was too young to fully comprehend what I was actually watching. So, when my Dad bought the series, I started to watch it all in order and fell in love with it. I love the concept and the characters and I just think it’s a seamless mix of horror and comedy with that ninety’s/noughties feel and for me it’s the perfect show.
