I’d just like everyone to take a second to appreciate ‘The Meltdown’ for using this episode title scheme.
They’ve also greenlit, “‘Another Period,’ starring Riki Lindhome and Natasha Leggero as rich, vapid sisters circa 1902; and “Idiotsitter,” created by and starring Jillian Bell and Charlotte Newhouse as, respectively, a rich woman under house arrest in her daddy’s mansion and the woman hired to keep her out of further trouble.”

Broad City is comedycentral's newest series, starring creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer as two white girls living in Brooklyn. I already watch a show about white girls in Brooklyn, you may be thinking. And it’s on HBO, so it’s cultural and feminist and stuff. An understandable perspective, especially since Comedy Central isn’t a network known for depth and resonance. But Broad City is different — it’s fresh and funny showcasing a unique brand of feminism, and it’s not to be overlooked.
Unlike Scandal, Broad City doesn’t feature diatribes about equal rights. Unlike Beyoncé, this show doesn’t feature in-your-face girl power — in fact, “empowering” is one of the last adjectives you’d probably use to describe it. Instead, Broad City opts for a different kind of feminist expression — one reflecting how normal people actually behave. A kind of feminism that’s not concerned with the Internet’s reaction. A kind of every day feminism that feels real.
