'2 Broke Girls: The Complete Fourth Season'
(Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs, et al / 3-DVD / NR / 2015 / Warner Bros. Home Entertainment)
Overview: The comedic duo that goes together like cupcakes and frosting is back in business and more hilarious than ever! It's season four of '2 Broke Girls', from Emmy® winner Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as two fast friends and roommates who work together at a Brooklyn diner where they dish up sarcasm and smarts.
DVD Verdict: The reason I love '2 Broke Girls' is that each season beforehand has stayed, relatively consistent throughout all the episodes it presented us. A storyline, of sorts, was always there, never really deviated from, and combined with great performances by the two leads - Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs - we still got en mass of pop culture jokes, sexual innuendos, and funny situations for our two broke gals to have to work their way out of.
That all said, this fourth season is where the show seemed to struggle story-wise, because in the first half of the season the characters stayed focused on their expanding cupcake business, whilst they still managed to get involved in some crazy-ass personal situations. But by the last few episodes, the focus changed a LOT, and it kinda got lost. It also seemed to become the Oleg and Sophie Show, with the one story line episode, "The High" completely outshine Caroline and Max's cupcake venture thread. The show was still funny during the whole season, don't get me wrong, and I loved the whole Victoria's Secret episode, but some of the last episodes were to watch and forget; sadly.
Indeed, season four threatens from the off to serve up sweet success for Brooklyn’s hottest waitresses, Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs), as they plan to strike it rich with their new cupcake T-shirt business! The shirts are selling like hot cakes, until a couple of unfortunate situations happen, and the two entrepreneurs are back at square one — and broke again!
Love is in the air as Sophie (Jennifer Coolidge) and Oleg (Jonathan Kite) plan their wedding, with Max and Caroline as the bridesmaids and Earl (Garrett Morris) and Han (Matthew Moy) along for the ride. The girls still worry about ways to make money, but their friendship is worth a million bucks. Literally, as it turns out!
I also loved the whole How-Caroline-Had-To-Work-Her-New-Shorter-Haircut-Into-The-Show episode, but if you just don't care for Whitney Cummings' brand of comedy (as she is the co-writer/co-creator of this show, well, you're just not gonna be happy with anything these two funny gals get up to. Also, all the stereotypical characters from the show are good in their own way: Oleg with his sexist comments, Han with his height issues, Earl's smart ass "back in the day" comments, and then there's Sophie ... ahhhh, dear, sweet, tell-it-like-it-is Sophie!
As I'm sure you know by now, the girls DO have very good chemistry. Kat Dennings is always hilarious and Beth Behrs fits quite well with her. They're basically the female 'The Odd Couple'. They do run into a few problems with groan worthy sitcom stories, but that's half the fun of "ordering" the cheese in the first place! Oh, and these fourth season of 22 episodes also features special appearances by guest stars Kim Kardashian West, Lily Aldridge and Sandra Bernard!
