Two female friends. Living in New York. It sounds like every other show you’ve ever watched, right?
Wrong, friends. Oh so very wrong.
Broad City, the Comedy Central series, is probably like a show you have NEVER watched before.
It’s crude. It’s feminist. Season Three has just started. And it’s bloody hilarious.
On the latest episode of The Binge, Rosie Waterland and Laura Brodnik did a deep dive into why everyone should be watching it.
“If you ask me, it’s just perfection” Rosie said.
“It’s essentially a comedy, I would say low-brow in some senses, it doesn’t really have an overarching story line. It’s not like Girls or Sex and the City – they’re very much stand-alone episodes.”
The main characters, Illana and Abbi aren’t like normal ‘women in New York’ characters. They live in a tiny apartment. They get stoned. They masturbate. They’re broke as broke.
“This show is not pandering to male sensibilities in any way, shape or form….it’s showing women as real human beings, not this depiction that men would like women to be,” Rosie says.
