Imagine yourself being completely broke together with your best friend. What kinds of creative ideas would pop up to pay for the rent or to buy a new set of pants? Would you steal the plates of the place you work at to be able to eat in dignity and would you work together with a mentally unstable person to pay for the tuition of your roommate? No? Well, in that case, Max and Caroline have much to teach you!

In the previous seasons of 2 Broke Girls, we’ve met Max and Caroline, two broke waitresses who’d try anything to make some money. This quest for wealth continues in season 3. For those not familiar with the series, I’ll explain briefly what the main characters are all about. Let’s start with Max. Max (Kat Dennings) was born in a family who didn’t know what it meant to have money and her mother kind of totally abandoned her for guys and booze. Max is not afraid to speak up and she doesn’t take too kindly to rich folks and this is where Caroline comes in. Caroline (Beth Behrs) originated from a well-known and very wealthy family but because of her criminal father, who tried to make his fortune by scheming several people and who’s now in jail because of it, she’s left with nothing. Eventually, Max ends up inviting Caroline in her home and since then, the two live together as best friends.

And The Soft Opening

In season 3, there’s a lot of stuff going on. Caroline finds out that Max wants to go to the pastry school and as it suits a best friend, she decides to work in the school to pay for Max’s tuition. However, it doesn’t take too long before both girls find a love interest there and what kind of love interests at that! Caroline succeeds in getting together with a married Frenchman (although she doesn’t realize this after the cat’s out of the bag) while Max finds a copy of herself, but in the form of a male. Through these events, the two girls also open up a cupcake shop at the back of the restaurant they work in. Here too, you’ll see a lot of hilarious situations unfold themselves.

Story wise, the series brings enough variation in the plot and keeps the series from getting uninteresting and boring. However, the narrative is pretty predictable and very simple depth wise. That’s normal for series like this but sometimes, it felt like there could’ve been more depth here and there to strengthen the base on which the series stands.

Of course, if you watch things like 2 Broke Girls, you’re watching them because you want to laugh. Well, the humor is pretty alright with some really good moments and some with less success. At several times, you might roll your eyes at the silliness of certain one-liners as they feel cheap and cheesy. However, 2 Broke Girls season 3 knows a lot of brilliant humour and even though it’s a shame the same level of performance isn’t steady throughout all episodes, you won’t want to miss the really good stuff.

And The Wedding Cake Cake Cake

The cast of 2 Broke Girls knows some fine actors and actresses. Kat Dennings, who portrays Max, plays her part pretty well but sometimes, her acting feels a bit too artificial. While Beth Behrs plays her role like no cameras are around, Dennings looks a lot more affected by the fact that this is all fiction. Of course, it might be part of the game and a choice of the directors, but it would be a lie to say it didn’t feel weird at times. Time to shed some light upon another actress of the series and surely the favorite of many: Jennifer Coolidge. Coolidge takes up the role of Sophie Kachinsky, a sturdy and candid woman with a Polish accent who will automatically make you smile at the least sight of her. She’s really brilliant in her acting and you’ll notice that the audience in the series itself goes wild every time she comes into play, and so they should!

With the DVD box come a couple of general extra features like the gag reel, where you’ll find more funny things to watch and deleted scenes. Like always, there’re a nice addition to the general DVD box and extend the view time a bit more.

2 Broke Girls season 3 is a worthy successor to the series and succeeds in bringing a nice variation of events and new characters. Although the plot is often predictable and misses some depth, it’s just good enough to keep the audience from getting bored with it. The humour is sometimes a bit too cheesy but there’re some great, hilarious situations which will make you laugh aloud. Overall, 2 Broke Girls season 3 is the perfect series to watch when you want a quick laugh without thinking too much about an interesting storyline.
