BROAD CITY
Aug. 10, 2014
Broad City is a web series by Illana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, which started out in 2010 and I have no idea how it took me whole 4 years to come across these two geniuses.
 
If GIRLS HBO(2012)is the anti-Sex And the City, then Broad City is the anti-Girls, anti-Sex and the City, anti-Charlies Angels and everything before that.  

Illana and Abbi play an exaggerated version of themselves, two girls in their 20s, living the full New York City experience. This experinece is not the one from the books and films, or the one Patti Smith and Debbie Harry had, but the life people actually end up having, people with regular jobs and clothes,  who goes to laundromats and eat full fat cookies.  Despite of the surrealism and absurdity of most of the episodes, this is as real as it gets.  

This year they have been hired for Comedy Central and Amy Poehler is now executive producer of the show.

Bellow,  some of the best episodes (average duration, 5 minutes) :
