The personalities of the two characters really make the show, they banter with each other, with ease and it's incredibly easy to imagine them both being as close in real life. The only real storyline to the show is that their saving working to save money for their cupcake business but other than that it's definitely the sort of show that you can easily pick up even if you miss a few episodes.
"Broke is rich with laughs, warmth and credibility. The performances by the two lead actresses are instantly winning, both individually and as they play off each other."
San Francisco Chronicle

"Despite a diversionary opening salvo of post-feminist raunch and unfortunate racial stereotyping, 2 Broke Girls is a solid, old-fashioned sitcom about two mismatched girls taking on the big city and makin' their dreams come true."
