2 BROKE GIRLS "And Hoarder Culture" Season 1 Episode 8 – This episode was not the best of 2 Broke Girls, and while at moments it was pretty terrible, it somehow managed to be simultaneously really good. I don’t know how that works. Watching Max surrounded by condoms and gum was one of the lower points of the episode. Caroline’s attempt to clean up a hoarder’s house was just a depressing set up for a bunch of depressing jokes featuring hoarders hoarding hoarders. The episode shouldn’t have worked. For the most part it didn’t.
2 Broke Girls has the set up, punchline, set up formula that was old back in the nineties. And this episode was a pretty major culprit:
