Comedy Central’s Broad City is one of my favorite comedies on television, mostly because — much like Workaholics — it nails what it’s like to be a 20-something, post-grad fuck-up living in New York City. Last night’s episode went there shattering taboos, including Abbi raping Seth Rogen after he passed out from heat exhaustion during sex. There’ some controversy over the reverse-rape scenario scene on Twitter today, but a few bloggers have weighed in with commentary, including Amanda Hess on Slate, Sarah Seltzer on Flavorwire, Patti Greco at Cosmo, and Kelsea Stahler at Bustle.
Look, what I loved about the episode was the dorm room scene. Abbi and Ilana desperately need an air conditioner, so they raid an NYU dorm room where everyone proceeds to get baked out their skulls. It’s College Dorm Chillaxing 101, until Abbi makes it weird by making out with a 16-year-old. The scene is one of the best in the show’s history.
If you’re not watching Broad City, you have no idea what you’re missing out on. Abbi, if you’re reading this, when are we going to that Phish show, yo?
