2 Broke Girls Thinks It's 2005, Relies Heavily On The Hipster Jokes


Maybe it’s supposed to be a running gag. Maybe one of the LA-based writers thinks Brooklyn is chock-full of hipsters (FYI: many, many other people live there — 2.6 million residents!). Whatever the case, 2 Broke Girls has made a choice to have its characters relentlessly mock hipsters. Oh, there are jokes about rich people and sex, sure. As well as the groan-inducing racist character stereotypes (making the Asian man a virgin seriously taps into the vile, pervasive untruth that Asian men are not sexual; these people should be ashamed). But most of the “laughs” come from hipster jokes. How very mid-aughts! I know I said I kind of liked this show. I may have spoken too soon.

Special thanks to Roger Cormier and Aimee Lutkin for enduring these jokes and putting this footage together.
