THE PLOT THUS FAR
Broad City follows two women throughout their daily lives in New York City, making the smallest and mundane events hysterical and disturbing to watch all at the same time.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Broad City” didn’t wow me at first. It took about four episodes before I started seeing what was making of the readers clamor for it. I’ve been burnt in the past on what Comedy Central considers to be amazing female led comedy. What we get is an American take on “Flight of the Conchords”, but substituting music with the malaise of the modern urban youth experience. Basically, you get to see shit get weird while these lovely ladies try to deal with creepers and the lame.
If Amy Poehler is willing to place a stake on these amazing ladies, then you should give the show a shot. While one can draw comparisons to shows like “Girls” or “Workaholics”, “Broad City” lives very much in the real. When you can relate to scrapping by and doing whatever it takes to make in a world of temp jobs and dead ends, Abbi and Ilana become heroes of a new age. If you’ve never stolen toilet paper due to financial constraints, then this might seem like a foreign oddity. But, those types don’t really read my site. I don’t want to say that we aim for low-rent, but I know my readers and I know what you guys like. So, check this out.
The DVD comes with outtakes, deleted scenes, video commentary and a photo gallery as the special features. The A/V Quality is on par with most standard definition release. The transfer isn’t amazing, but it beats the typical treatment that most first season comedies get. The Dolby stereo track kicks in where needed. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
