Broad City Continues to Fucking Rock

After getting turned on to Broad City last year by Nicki, Larry & I were definitely hard-core fans.  Hell, we even went to Broad City Live a few months ago!  The worrying thing about an amazing first season of a television show is that you never know if that was a beautiful fluke or if the show can maintain and even improve in its second.  Well, for Broad City, it seems there’s no sophomore slump!  Holy shit.  This show is so fucking good.  The first episode was an awesome return to a wonderful show but then the second episode was funny but for me, it wasn’t aMAZing.  But then last week’s episode, “Wisdom Teeth,” and then last night’s episode, “Knockoffs,” came into our lives, and holy shit, they are possibly my favorite episodes of this show up to this point.

Abbi’s drug-fueled post-wisdom teeth adventures are absolutely epic in “Wisdom Teeth” but the whole episode is just so damn funny.  Here’s a clip from her Whole Foods escapade….”They WANT to be knocked over, Abbi!”

I’ve included this scene from the episode where Abbi meets up with Ilana at a shiva for Ilana’s grandmother.  It’s fucking amazing:
