This is a comments thread about Blog Post: Aisle Seat 9-4: 15th Season Premiere by Andy Dursin

The writing is generally good

More like very variable, and the complaints some people have made about the characters surrounding Max and Caroline being cringe-makingly stereotyped have merit (and the less said about Jennifer Coolidge's "horrible, horrible" upstairs neighbour the better).

but it’s the chemistry between the appealing Dennings and Behrs that puts the show over the top

...and makes it tolerable. Frankly, in terms of Warner-produced sitcoms set in New York Suburgatory is a lot better.

The writing is pretty awful, for the most part. Every easy cheap target - 99% of them are sex jokes - is always taken on, there is no sleazy joke missed. It isn't a laugh out loud show ( for me) BUT, yeah the undeniable chemistry with Dennings and Behrs does make the show watchable. They're hot and sweet and manage to make each episode a light, agreeable affair. These two gals generate a ton of goodwill the show wouldn't have without them aboard.

That makes it pretty hard to watch before the watershed, thanks to E4 (the channel it airs first-run on in Britain) getting the scissors out for repeats if they're on before 9pm. Ouch...

Oh, and I'm with Mrs. Dursin on Once Upon A Time.

Pretty much this. I latched onto 2 BROKE GIRLS because the material on the show was leagues better than what Dennings had to work with in Thor. Even with the overabundance of smarmy sex jokes, I still believe this. And yes, the chemistry between Dennings and Behrs is rock solid. In spite of the weaknesses in the writing, I'll be tuning in for season 2.
