    broad city

    Most disgusting pathetic tv viewing ever.
    Its supposed to be about two lesbians living in the inner city. Lesbians who obviouslywere raised by dogs. Worst fifteen minutes of tv in my life. Once seen you cant unsee it.

    Surely female writers and comedians can do better than this.

    Re: broad city

    Was this a program shown on Aussie TV ? Is Broad City it's title, because I don't think it is or has been shown on UK TV so I don't know anything about it. I must say, though, that certainly on UK TV the trend seems to be towards including 'gay/lesbian' characters as often as possible in various dramas. Also 'camp' is more and more a generally accepted ingredient on many TV shows.

    When did Brits start saying 'TV' instead of 'telly?'

    Its an American show Gill, i think they are supposed to be in New York? maybe?......just didnt see any humour in it at all. Nothing, just grotesqueness.
    You could probably see snippets of it on youtube or something but be warned. Im not sure theres a lot of validity in the 'gay' aspect of the show unless its a deliberate attempt to paint them in a bad light as unclean sordid and objectionable.

    I had quite a few laughs while watching this show but it's nothing special really. Yet, it's still better than those sitcoms with a laugh track added...

    Broad City concerns Abbi and Ilana. They are thieves, they consume illegal drugs, they blackmail people, they have pointless sex with innumerable men (who behave like, and occasionally turn out to be, porn stars) all of which qualifies as comedy in America. I don't recall either of them being remotely describable as lesbians.

    And before anyone starts on about American camp humor just bear in mind that the most famous Australian woman is a bloke in a dress.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Hi Anne, I think it must have been when Ena Sharples left Coronation Street in the UK !

    OI! You leave off Dame Edna!...... Youve got got Mrs Brown!
    Edna has been around since the sixties in the same vein as monty did middle aged women better. Humouristically. Most famous australian female is a bit of a mysoginistic opinion of Australian women! .... can think of loads actually. But history is still written by men obviously.

    The women in Broad city have a reason to sleep with men....but for satisfaction you sleep with a woman. Bi? Maybe?.... but definately a distinction in these women characters lives.

    You mean "Hello possums" Dame Edna Everidge ? Actually, I'm really surprised that you watch American TV shows, Mr. spot, and certainly that sort of program as well ( at least it seems to be a very edifying sort of show - not. LOL ). It certainly wouldn't appeal to me one bit, not from the description you so eloquently gave ! By gum you must have watched the show all the way through, and maybe more than one episode, to be able to detail the contents like that ! I am surprised, and if you look carefully you may notice how high my eyebrows are raised !

    Actually, I watched "Mrs. Brown" once and didn't find it very funny - perhaps I caught one of the not-so-good episodes. I do think that Dame Edna is far better than "Mrs. Brown" though - at least Dame Edna makes me laugh !
