Whatever you say about 2 Broke Girls’ wackadoo portrayal of Brooklyn (and I say a lot about it), the show always accurately depicts that Kat Dennings is awesome. She was particularly funny in this week’s episode, in which Max has a delightfully specific awkward encounter with her bartender/street artist crush: When Johnny pretends to be interviewing Max with a celery stalk, she seductively bites it while looking him right in the eyes, and everyone gets all weird. Awkwardness, hijinks and believable girl-bonding follow.
And of course, lots of deets about Brooklyn:
KEEPING IT REAL
Great Outdoors: Everyone knows that Brooklyn backyards are not for storing horses, they are for wooing love interests by providing a picturesque outdoor drinking location. Max makes good use of hers when Johnny comes over with beers and they sit out there in perfect banter heaven. Ah, to be young and in a backyard…
Sleep Tight: Caroline wants to find a way to not have to sleep on the couch, while still letting Max maintain the “Williamsburg I-don’t-care-about-anything-nice decor” of the apartment. There’s no room for a second bed, so Caroline installs a Murphy bed (the kind that folds into the wall). I’ve never heard of this set-up in real life, but it makes sense, and definitely makes a higher roommate-to-bedroom ratio more palatable.
