2 Broke Girls has always been one of those stock standard half-hour sitcoms. They jam in as many sex jokes, racist jokes, size jokes, sexuality jokes, and whatever other kind of one liners they can into the half hour, while sort of following a plot.
The second season ended recently, and to be fair a lot more happened in terms of overall plot than in the first, although somewhat less happened character wise. While the first season had a lot of Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) warming up to each other, Caroline constantly pushing the business idea on her, and Max pretending not to care, during the second season they hit somewhat more of a lull.
The second season saw them finally acquire a cupcake store, and then that business failed. Now, don’t get me wrong, it made sense that they failed on the first go, because who really thought they’d be able to pull that one off?
Regardless of the logic of the matter, their failure resulted in a stagnation of the tail end of season 2. Caroline, the character that was normally so gung ho, lost all of her drive – which is quite understandable.
And after all this time, Max and Caroline ended up right back where they started. It feels sort of defeatist that they have to restart, considering it took a season and a half for them to get there.
The last episode of the second season points towards them opening up their cupcake business in a secret back room of the diner. Gosh isn’t that convenient? Well, as much of a plot device as it seems, at least it means it won’t take another season and a half for them to get to the shop point again.
2 Broke Girls is a routine show, something where you know exactly what to expect. Now, that doesn’t mean it has to change, but hopefully the show shifts out of the somewhat stagnant area that it found itself in during the last part of the season.
