Consider Yourself Roasted, '2 Broke Girls'

03.19.12 7 years ago 15 Comments

The lazy jokes and casual racism that fuel “2 Broke Girls” have been discussed ad nauseum. They’re bad even for a CBS show, which is saying something. This is the network that brought us “Rob” (“Aren’t people with accents weird and hilarious?”) and “Two and a Half Men” (“Can you believe the sex thing I just did or said and also did someone fart LOL [laugh track].”) And, if you recall, the show’s co-creator isn’t exactly apologetic about any of it.

That’s why I love this parody trailer (NSFW audio). I’ve read high-minded takedowns of the show that discuss the way it perpetuates a ton of negative stereotypes, I’ve heard comedians complain about the way it continues to dumb down the viewing audience rather than challenge anyone, and I myself have bemoaned the way this kind of show can bring in ratings that far better comedies would need mind-enhancing drugs to even think about. This video does none of that. It takes aim and kicks the show square in the nuts. Sometimes that’s much more satisfying.
