Four, and three, and two, and one (one), and Broad City is back; Abbi and Ilana troll the NYC streets — and their respective bathrooms in a sweet opening montage — and in an outcome that shocks exactly no one, take the fictional golden ring of last night’s best reviewed program, and our second ever perfect score. It’s a good night for high-concept dramatic serials — as American Crime and Supernatural both nab good grades (however, Arrow suffers another tepid episode). Last week’s victor, Younger, gets lost on a romantic trip to a bluegrass festival.
Wednesday, February 17th’s Best: Broad City (10.0/10)
“The greatest semi-platonic love story of all time” (as proclaimed by newly ordained Vulture Broad City reviewer Rose Surnow) returned to Comedy Central last night with its usual flourish. It’s raves all around, as Surnow sums up: “The day was full of hijinks, embarrassment, and fashion faux-pas, but it was still awesome. Every day is awesome when Abbi and Ilana spend it together.” Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya gives thanks and praise to its opening montage — a split-screen bathroom affair — as the “best sequence the show has tackled to date.” Considering the majesty of last season’s opening subway strut, that’s saying something.
The Rest of the Night:
Supernatural – 8.5
American Crime – 8.3
Younger – 7.8
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – 7.4
Black-ish – 7.0
Arrow – 6.6
