2 Awesome Girls

Imagine if Nyssa and Tegan toned down the sexual tension between them, were dumped in 21st century Brooklyn and found themselves in an American version of "Bottom", then improved like hell trying to make each other corpse via slapstick and verbal abuse, you'd have 2 Broke Girls.

72 episodes of it so far and not once has it betrayed me like Moffat-era Who!


*hurls a brick at passing Scotsman*

Meh. Could've been him.

It's arguably more Australian than anything Chris Lilly did - the GST jokes, the Edna Everidge gags, the "as welcome as a priest at a Wiggles concert" metaphor...

Oh yeah. They're totally in love.

This is the darkest timeline.

It is never the darkest timeline while a version of Community still exists.

He's got a point there.

Inspector Space-Time, my duodenal ulcer.

And when have I ever recommended substandard stuff? You ever see me rave like this about Kaldor City? Or DWADs? Or Miracle Day?

But no, in all serious, I am in a dark place right now.

Hey, what were the sweets that Ben Chatham used to give people that gave apparent psychedelic experiences? I suddenly started thinking about it at work and I couldn't remember.

Youth of Australia said...

Fox's Glacier Mints.

Interestingly, they were mentioned on screen in DW, during Ten's stream of consciousness nervous breakdown in "The Waters of Mars".

...

Oh, and, heads up, spara's triggered a total shitstorm with his latest (non BC) story where UNIT are secretly funding a corrupt monastery who abuse special needs children for nefarious purposes identical to those in "Invasion of the Dinosaurs".

But the last straw was the idea of Capaldi in Bessie, running over one of the kids with Down's Syndrome and then driving off on the argument they'd been "dumped" there.

Spara still doesn't get why anyone's offended.

This is why I've turned to 2BG, which is awesome, incidentally.

I looked.

Jesus Christ, is his life so empty?

Youth of Australia said...

Nope.

His letter to Steven Moffat is actually even more offensive...

I dunno, I've read what Mad Larry used to say on his blog and right now, I think I'll keep my relation with Ben Chatham as it's been the last few years, just killing him off every November.

Youth of Australia said...

Larry at least didn't offer Moffat some hookers in return for letting him write all the episodes and giving other writers credit because "why have a dog and bark yourself".

...

This has what has driven me to American feminist romcoms.

Miles Reid-Lobatto said...


Are you jealous I've never offered hookers?

Youth of Australia said...

Well, I never thought the situation was practical. Plus I always think of Joe Swanson at the strip club...

"Oh, look at her. Oh, I would do things to her that... would probably make her laugh. THE BITCH!!!"

I'm more jealous of you having Rhi.

I admittedly I have not seen 2 Broke Girls. Big Bang Theory has turned me off US Sitcoms big time.

Although what I've seen of Parks and Rec is good.

Youth of Australia said...

I like Parks and Rec.

And BBT counts as better than the add breaks, but 2BG just has my demented sense of humour.

Caroline: See Max, one quick change and we went from polyster and pitiful to powerful and proud. Just like Superman.

Max: Except, Superman changed in a phone booth not a stall that says "For a good time call Max."

Caroline: Well, if you had a problem with it, why did you write it?

Max: Because I didn't have enough eyeliner to write "For an interesting time call Caroline".
