Broad City "Philadelphia" Review - AVClub

AVClub: New York is its own character on Broad City. Tonight’s episode, however, takes Abbi and Ilana out of their natural habitat, out of the hustle and bustle of the city so essential to the show’s voice and style. Scored by Sleater-Kinney’s “A New Wave,” Abbi and Ilana take the train on down to Philadelphia—for a quick vape stop—and then over to Wayne, Pennsylvania, where Abbi Jacobson and her fictional counterpart are from. What happens when you take Abbi and Ilana out of New York? Well, they really just get up to their usual antics. Despite the change in scenery, “Philadelphia” unfolds like a fairly business-as-usual episode of Broad City. It’s a solid episode, one that spirals through a series of unfortunate and weird mishaps, but it does feel a bit like a missed opportunity for the show to have even more fun with the location change. Philadelphia only really provides some characters from Abbi’s past and a few Will Smith jokes. Oh, and Tony Danza.

The story is too old to be commented.
