2 Broke Girls (CBS, 2011)

CBS' new sitcom 2 Broke Girls stars Kat Dennings (The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist) as "Max" and relative newcomer Beth Behrs (NCIS, Castle) as "Caroline" in an old-fashioned The Odd Couple-styled friendship. Unfortunately, if the premiere episode is any indication, it is terrible. I had high hopes for it, as despite my imaginary Twitter feud with Kat Dennings, she is still a favorite who I find funny and ridiculously sexy. Also, one of the creators, Whitney Cummings, can be quite funny. The show did not give me much of either.

There are a few decent jokes, but frankly, the delivery is pretty stale, and there is not really much original about it. I am not sure Kat Dennings' boobs and creepy beauty will keep me interested in this one; and frankly thus far that is all the show has going for it. Clip below has every good joke, and most of the bad jokes, from the premiere.

You have a Twitter feud with Kat?

A fake one. I forget what made me mention it originally, aside from her never responding to me. It is pure fiction. :-)

She's never replied to me either! You'd think she was getting millions of replies a day or something!

I know she's popular and all, but yeah. I believe it all started here, and I just keep it as a running gag of sorts. :-)
