    There's really nothing especially clever about the skits, and while it's not as bad as some of these other reviewers are making it out to be, after getting through 3 episodes it's pretty obvious all these two have to go on is cheesy weed jokes and self humiliation scenes. What's most discouraging about this show is the positive reinforcement we are seeing by the critics.

What's most discouraging about this show is the positive reinforcement we are seeing by the critics. It's as if standards have been lowered to the point where shows like this are considered smart and witty. Again, it's semi-watchable and offers the occasional chuckle or gasp, but the same repetitive skits surrounding these girls' lives isn't going to cut it for a full season. Expand

    As opposed to a more mainstream comedy like The Mindy Project or Two Broke Girls, Broad City sits at the margins of comedy and doesn't muddle its humor by sticking its conclusions about the human condition right under the audience's nose.

    The premiere does feel a tad stretched at times. But next week’s episode gets deeper into the girls’ money troubles with the help of guests Rachel Dratch and Janeane Garofalo as oddball yet oddly authentic employers. By then, the humor is humming along nicely and--what do you know--Broad City” has found its rhythm.

    Problem is, these same episodes lurch between nuanced observation of real-world trivialities and goofy sketch comedy exaggeration, and their flashes of spiky personality don't alleviate the feeling that, content-wise, the show is stuck in that regrettably familiar commercial cable bind: not safe, exactly, but not dangerous, either.
