Watched an episode of Girls. Not bad. They're all really rich and privileged.

My sister's grown semi addicted to "How Clean is Your House?" and I watch the odd episode myself.

Whenever I'm cleaning the house I adopt yer one's mannerisms and start saying "Now my love, I've just taken some warm water and Some Bi-Carb and an ordinary cloth my love, and I'm just going to wipe it over this stain.. do you see my dear, that's lift the stain clean off, now isn't that better, Now my love, you can finish the rest"

Quite liked Girls. First episode was decent and the second was hilarious. I'm pretty sick of the idea that TV and plays are only gritty if they focus on the working class. The main character is probably going to have money woes for a while. Do we really want to watch 4 women financially struggling every week?

I taped it, can't wait to watch it later. I am bound to be disappointed.

If you're expecting the new sex and the city I think you will be. So far it seems less of an ensemble piece. It's pretty much all about the main character. I can't even remember the other characters names.

Why would I be expecting the new Sex and The City?

Because its been marketed that way. Every article I've read about it. The main character is a writer. Another character is extremely uptight and works in a Gallery. Another character likes having and talking about sex. There are four main characters. It's set in NY and regularly mentions what NY is like. I could probably go on.

To be honest all I saw was the advert and a few articles on Buzzfeed but I didn't make the connection.

One of the characters is a SATC fan, has a SATC poster in her room and talks about SATC characters in the first episode, so the writing directly invites the comparison. But the idea is - I think - that Lena Dunham does this to acknowledge a debt while also teeing up scenarios that contrast with Samantha & Co's hi-jinks.

Well, I still haven't seem it yet. It's a bit shit though, because when SATC was out I was too young to identify with the characters and now that Girls is out I am too old.

Well there is evidently an appetite for 2 Broke Girls. Whether the public want 4 broke girls is hard to say.

This could be market-tested by incrementally increasing the number of broke girls in the show. Bear in mind, it is not necessary to increase by 1 each time. Two And A Half Men have shattered the whole integer ceiling. So you could have a show called 3 And A Half Broke Girls and then add in another half and see if the average couple on the couch will go with it.

Who watches 2 Broke Girls?

Anyway being broke is the whole premise of 2BG. And it's a sitcom. A more serious/realistic comedy like Girls would suffer if it concentrated on money woes.

It sounds embarrassing. If Sex and The City hadn't irradiated ones brain cells quite enough this show has arrived to finish the job.
