2 Broke Girls Review: Chunky Chinese Cherubs

by at . Comments

Nothing could dampen Han’s Valentine’s Day spirit. Not the lack of customers, not Max’s snarkiness, not even the matching panties to his Cupid wings riding up into dangerous territory.

In fact, for an episode where nobody ended up with a date on Valentine's Day, "And the Broken Hearts" offered a good amount of heartwarming emotions. Of course, that was tempered with the base line crude humor that is the show’s bread and butter. 

Max, Caroline, and Cupid Han

Not that crude humor is bad. Like many sitcoms before it, 2 Broke Girls does a great job of skating along on the curb - just staying out of the gutter - and just when you think we’re heading south into the muck, they pull a rope-a-dope and hit us with a touching moment. 

After all, how moving was it that Caroline’s father was able to send her flowers even from jail? How cute was Oleg offering Sofi the box of chocolates? And, of course, my heart strings were being tugged at gently when Max read the card from Caroline’s father... right up to the point she reminded us what show we’re watching with the comment about sleeping with Caroline’s dad. 

However, this week’s MQA (Most Quotable Award) goes to Earl. He had the best lines of the night, starting with his banter with Sofi and ending with his comment about Han being a chunky Chinese cherub.

While the girls didn’t make any progress on their cupcake business, it is always nice to take a holiday off from being driven. I hope all of you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day – now go get your hearts on!

Does anyone remember exactly what Sofi said? "No one can take care of me better than me!"

My favorite line from that show was the one about "'Sticky Icky Ricky', who delivers exclusively after midnight.".

What a poor review really? ANY THOUGHTS ABOUT CAROLINE AND THE FACT THAT MAYBE SHELL SEE THAT DOCTOR AGAIN, I THINK IT COULD BE A LOVE INTEREST. I MEAN, IF HE CHANGES HIS MIND. PLUS I LOVED HOW EARL TOLD THE NURSE MAX WAS FAMILY, AND HOW MAX RUNNED TO DEFFEND CAROLINES HONOR! LOVE THIS TWO! AND LOVE SOFI!

What kills me are the shoes they wear on the job! Heels and the boots! I'm a waitress too and when I even think about wearing Chuck Taylor's instead I'd tennis shoes with some support I regret it for two solid days! I'd be dropping trays, falling in spilled tea and ranch dressing and would have to buy stock in band-aid! And all the jewelry! I don't even wear my wedding rings...wet fingers from the towel bucket and rings are a bad combination and my stupid watch always gets hung on my tray. I always look at their shoes and just laugh and laugh. Have they addressed that on the show? I have missed several episodes.

I know Denning's humor is the point of the show but it's too much. Her acting is flat too. I liked the touching moments.
