Ninety-one? There are ninety other "Tiger Drivers"? Do any involve actual tigers, or driving?


A lesser show would've just kept Abbi, Ilana & Bevers in the storage locker for the whole night. Thankfully this isn't one of those shows.

I think this was the first time in the series that Abbi & Ilana weren't my favorite part of an episode, loved all the bits of Lincoln and Jaime hanging out.

Bevers is my favorite. He's like a more disgusting Zach Galifinakis. His rash scene from a few episodes ago was amazing. I love how we never his gf, Abbi's roommate.

He played Zonk in Don't Trust the B- in Apt 23 if anyone rememers that show.

Abbi has really come into her own this season.

"Chrissy, did you not call to change the confirmation like I asked you to? Did you mess up my plans once again and not call to change?"
"I'm so sorry. I forgot."
"We're trying to get on the boat. This is an important business boat meeting."

I'm not 100% sure about the not seeing the roommate thing. Works fine when it's just a silly plot device and she's never around, but having her at an event and blocking her view etc is just awkward. Plus it's been done a million times and Broad City is usually super good at flipping tropes like that. I hope there's more to it than what we've seen already.

If they use it as an excuse to hire a big name for the role for the reveal in 3 seasons time, bleh.

I agree, it was only cute when it was obvious they weren't pulling the unseen-character gag. Her face was blocked out and she was never around, but I really thought the show was going to do a switch by having her pop out of the bathroom when Abbi was talking to her.

I laughed anyways, but from just a cursory bit of research on Google... the joke is that the frat bros are from Murray Hill, which is an affluent neighborhood in downtown Manhattan, and moving to Williamsburg which is an "up and coming" gentrified neighborhood in Brooklyn.

I laughed too because the delivery was perfect and that kinda joke is relatable no matter what city you live in, just didn't know the specifics of NYC geography

With Parks and Rec over this is by far my favourite comedy. I binged watched the entire show and I'm angry that there isn't more. Abbi and Ilana are perfect and the writing consistently has me laugh hard at least once. I want to know the secret to their weirdness but I can probably guess.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE DEAD, MOTHERFUCKER?

Fallen Rib

One thing bugged me about the shop: Abbi took 900 dollars cash over $13,000 store credit but then she spent 220 of her dollars to buy back her bag. Why didn't she instead pay 14 dollars for 220 dollars worth of store credit and get the bag that way? Or 220 dollars for $3500 in store credit that way she'd never have to spend money on clothes again?

Abbi you're killin me, girl.

And again since we all like how this show subverts sitcom tropes it was great how the whole "lord a secret over someone for favors" thing immediately backfired on Abbi

AAHHHHHHH!!!!

I felt bad for Trey. Sure he's douchey, but never malevolently so. In the party episode, it was established that Trey genuinely likes Abbi and Abbi never really asked Trey about being a trainer (she may have dropped hints, but I take Trey for the oblivious type). It must've come out of left field in his perspective for Abbi to blackmail him like that. But the episode was super funny and made up for that.

I love that this was apparently shot on Christmas Day.

I like how the show actually does progress the characters without actually diving into drama. Abbi is over her crush and actually has a trainer job. They're teasing Ilana actually dealing with having a boyfriend in everything but name.

This week's Archer had a scene that was more or less pornographic. I'm sure that kind of content can get you an NC-17 from the MPAA.

That is certainly one of the things that keeps me watching this show. It's fearless about putting things on television that lesser shows would shirk away from, for fear of alienating their audience.

They take the opposite approach all together, if you don't like what you see GTFO. I think that's one thing that gives this show its credibility.
