2 Broke Girls -S1 E2 - And Strokes of Goodwill

Max and Caroline go shopping for new clothes at the Goodwill store.

Spoilers after the jump.

1 - This Earl guy... not funny...

...especially when you compare him with how they treat Han.

3 - Walked right into that one.

Delivery is a little slow, stilted.

6 - Crocodile tears by Caroline?

7 - C-line? C'mon, all her friends were white like Serena's.

8 - Wednesday at the will - good times.

(Max turns her back on her basket) She forgot her own rules very quickly after reciting them.

10 - Hmm, I wouldn't mind if they did take off all their clothes.

12 - This won't go well.

16 - Lively girl, Max is always interesting.

18 - He (Oleg) is never cooking.

(Caroline learns Max has been walking her horse) What, she doesn't know that? How would she exercise it anyway? (Max in fact asks the same questions)

19 - Not my style either, Max

20 - That shirt cost $4, damnit!

This show is quikly falling into a very predictable formula where Max is all cynical and hard, Caroline does something naive or boneheaded, Max gets mad and they have a fight, but then they each suddenly realize where they were wrong and have a sweet reconciliation. Let's shake it up a bit because there's not a whole lot else to work with here. They seem to want to be very edgy, but can't quite bring themselves to break out of familiar cliches. Kat Dennings is carrying the show on her back at the moment - she did have some good stuff in this episode, the Facebook joke, walking with the horse... thin on the ground entertainment-wise besides.

"2 Broke Girls" airs Mondays on CBS at 8:30 pm EST
