I want to start by saying that I like the show 2 Broke Girls. In fact I found their crude humor down right funny. But there are a few flaws with the show that really bug me.
First and foremost is that fact that Caroline Channing has a degree from Wharton Business school and yet she chooses to work as a waitress in a dive.
Really? Why? At the very least should could use her degree to get an office job which would pay way more than waitress and be better working conditions.
Next is their apartment. We all know that New York City rent is insane. There are people who tell stories about living in a studio apartment (with no bedroom at all) for more than a thousand dollars a month.
Their extremely high NYC rent is one of the reason why I assumed they are always so broke.
But in the episode from 2012 called “And The High Holidays” they mention that if they sold all the cupcakes it would be $540 which would cover their rent. How in the heck is that possible? $540 a month for a huge, albeit one bedroom apartment in New York City? Really?
That can’t be right. If their rent is only $540 a month, between the two of them how are they broke? That’s INSANE!! That’s only $270 each. I’m sorry but no way can their rent only be $540 a month in New York City.
I checked out Zillow and found a ton of 1 bedroom apartments available in New York for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000 but not a single one of them were as big as the one they have in 2 Broke Girls
Anyway, just wanted to rant about those things because they were annoying me. Now I’m going to go back to watching re-runs of 2 Broke Girls.
I get that TV isn’t meant to be 100% real, but at least they can make an effort to be somewhat realistic. Don’t you think?
