            If sexual innuendo and jokes at the intelligence level of a fifteen-year-old boy are still humorous to you, or if you still are fifteen, “2 Broke Girls” will make you laugh. I watch the series with mild amusement, mostly because I have met girls like the foul-mouthed and sex-obsessed Max (Kat Denning), as well as the superficial and self-involved Caroline (Beth Behrs). I watch the show because I can turn it off after twenty minutes, reminded why I no longer date those girls. After three seasons, both have grown slightly. Max has her first real relationship and takes steps in achieving her dreams. Caroline is also humbled with time from wealth, though her disgustingly greedy side still emerges with any hint of wealth in men, even despising Max’s boyfriend when she thinks he is poor despite having no money herself.


            Max and Caroline work in a Brooklyn diner, although it often appears much more like the trendy hipster cities of Los Angeles than New York. Global location aside, the diner is a dump which is run by a small and young Asian man named Han (Matthew Moy), with a few rarely working employees that include Earl (Garrett Morris) and the lecherous cook, Oleg (Jonathan Kite). Max and Carline also have a sex-obsessed neighbor named Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge). In fact, the only time the characters in this show aren’t discussing sex on some level is when they talk about cupcakes.


            Attempting to escape their job, the girls try and start up a cupcake business. This season they open a store in the back of the diner, after failing at a larger venture in the previous season. The series is full of many devices to keep them from succeeding too soon, because what kind of show called “2 Broke Girls” has successful entrepreneurs. Max starts going to pastry school this season, which falls apart as quickly as the shop from the previous season. Although the sexual innuendo and puns are clever, the plot of the show quickly discards storylines with absolutely no sentimental regret, making it even more impossible to care about these polar opposite tragedies of human beings.


            The DVD release for the third season of “2 Broke Girls” has all twenty-four episodes on three discs. There are also a handful of special features dispersed among the discs, including unaired scenes and a gag reel.
