LUFTHANSA YOU FUCKING DICKWEASEL

Season 2 Premiers tonight, January 14th, at 10:30pm EST

Broad City is about two 20-something girls hanging out in New York. That's pretty much it. The first season is already out and you can watch all 10 episodes on Amazon/GooglePlay/itunes. You can also watch the original shorts on Youtube. Not sure how it compares to the show though.

Here's a Grantland profile that Y-Hat posted. It gives a lot of background on the show's development and Ilana and Abbi themselves.

Characters:

Ilana Wexler
(Ilana Glazer)


Marijuana enthusiast. Slacker. Oblivious to almost anything that isn't Abbi.

Abbi Abrams
(Abbi Jacobson)


She's a cleaner in a gym even though she wants to be a trainer. Dreams of being an artist. Trying to balance being an adult and having fun.

Lincoln Rice
(Hannibal Buress)

Dentist who is Abbi's and Ilana's friend. In a sexual relationship with Ilana and wants to take things to the next level even though she's unreceptive.

Other characters:

John Gemberling as Matt Bevers – Abbi's roommate's boyfriend who seems to never leave. He is a messy, disgusting freeloader, and in general a constant nuisance to Abbi. In spite of this, he has shown on a couple of occasions to have a sweet, sensitive side.

Stephen Schneider as Jeremy Santos - Abbi's neighbour from across the hall and secret crush; he is mainly portrayed as a polite and easy going guy, usually seen in passing. He appears to like Abbi but merely as a good friend and neighbour.

Arturo Castro as Jaimé – Ilana's drug dealing gay roommate. Jaimé is an illegal immigrant from Venezuela. He does Ilana's taxes. Jaimé exhibits extreme guilt over what he perceives as wrongs he has committed against his friends, however they are usually minor transgressions.

Paul W. Downs as Trey – Abbi's boss at Soulstice. He is a hardcore health and fitness enthusiast. Although he is fundamentally a nice guy, he is humorously oblivious to Abbi's desire to be a trainer and is constantly badgering her to clean various things around the gym (mostly pubes). Paul is also a writer on Broad City, having written "Working Girls" (episode 1.3).

Chris Gethard as Todd – Ilana's boss at the web "deal" company. He is frustrated by Ilana's lack of commitment to her job but has yet to reprimand her in any way.

I looked up the Colin Farrell sex tape and of course the times Ilana said were accurate.

Also I just recently learned that Creepy Locksmith was actually the guy who voiced Trevor in GTA V. Maybe the previous thread/comedy show megathread/whatever figured that out already, but it was news to me.

I realized that as soon as I heard his voice.

I guess that explains why they aren't roommates.

I tried watching You're The Worst and ended up hating it. To me it had this odd combination of being obnoxious, fake, manufactured, and try-hard; like a by-the-numbers show aimed at getting the 20's crowd. Broad City feels like it has way more heart put into it and feels more natural.

I dug this episode a lot. Really surprised more people didn't. I was dying at Alana as she said she would kill herself if Abbi doesn't wake up.

I have the biggest loving crush on Alana. I just wanna get blazed all day with that girl.

Ilana.

gently caress, I missed the episode because I fell asleep. I wish Broad City switched times with workaholics so I could go to sleep earlier on Wednesdays.

Great episode. Definitely up there as one of my faves. I like when they get surreal but I also like when the weirdness is more grounded.

He was in DTTB? Thank god I blocked that part out of my memory.

I think he was the Australian guy's friend when they were trying to trick Chloe.

Abbi has been killing it this season. In a strange way she's become the wildcard of the duo.

I missed the first five minutes of this episode and my cable was hosed up. As other people said I love Illana and Abbi's friendship in this episode. Chill episode.
