Meet Mr. Abrams
Broad City daringly took a step into the great beyond that is “not New York City” this week. First stop: Abbi’s native Philadelphia, more specifically the Main Line community of Wayne. The girls are there to clear out her childhood bedroom, so they crash with none other than Tony Danza, this week’s special guest, in the role of Abbi’s dad. He’s exactly the kind of sweet suburban parent we’d expect, and full of endearing revelations like the fact that young Abbi used to play in the trash.
Liza (Almost) Comes Clean
The penultimate episode of Younger‘s second season ended on one of the most endearingly ridiculous cliffhangers in recent memory: Kelsey’s douche of a fiancé threatening to out Liza… then getting hit by a freak falling beam! In the ensuing fallout, Liza blames herself, quits Empirical — and gets convinced to come back before anyone can actually learn her secret. It’s a close call, but one that includes a sweet connection between Liza and Hillary Duff’s Kelsey. Until next year!
Full Dream Sequence
Guided by the “Dream Ghost” of her therapist, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend allows its heroine the most self-awareness yet. In a journey through her own past, Rachel Bloom learns a series of important lessons: that her mother is a better parent than she gives her credit for; that love can be a passion, not a romance; and that she has a more meaningful support network in West Covina than she ever had in New York. Combined with a great, Josh-related cliffhanger and some tentative progress with Greg, it’s the most plot-heavy episode of the show to date.
