I don't like EVERY episode of this show, but 501 "Stories" I thought was INCREDIBLE.  I was screaming laughing the whole time.  I've never seen anything like it.  I watched some episodes of TV yesterday but this blew them all of them out of the water.

One of the reasons why I liked 501 was because I actually did the same thing in Tokyo with my dog (minus the video). No phone, just reading the maps and signs and walked the diameter of the city.

Honestly, the whole bit with Abbi's ass was ridiculous and I laughed so hard.

501 was inventive and hilarious. I'm sad the show is ending, but at least it looks like they're going all in on the final season.

LOVED the season premiere, I’m gonna miss this show so much when it’s gone. I’ve rewatched the ep a couple times and I bust out laughing every time Ilana’s face pops onscreen when Abbi mentions having kids.

Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer on Broad City coming to an end:

I've been catching up on some of the videos posted here. The story they tell starting around 3:00 on Kimmel is something I can 100% picture happening on the show.

I am going to miss this show so much! This episode was so great, I loved every second of it. The IG story was so true, I was dying! My favorite part might have been Ilana just straight up falling into a manhole, and just walking it off. They were super committed to their walking goals!

I also love that Ilana has been filming Abbis ass for years, and created a heartfelt compilation of her ass throughout the years, and Abbi was truly touched!

God, this episode was amazing. If they are all that good this season, I might pass out. Not only was it funny as hell and full of New York New Yorkiness, and brought back characters we love in a non-schmoopy way, but it began hinting at the reasons the show is coming to a close. Abbi's hitting a milestone birthday and wondering what's next, talking about kids and both of them envying Cheese, and Ilana's torn-up foot, indicating the vulnerabilities of age and the fact that they can't really get away with all the shit they got away with in their early 20s.

This show does our relationship with social media so much better than Grown-ish's slick, addicted, complicit take on it.

One of the things I loved about this episode was that Ilana wearing a tube top with unshaven armpits was NBD.

I loved Ilana telling the YouWork guys that their business is getting people to pay to rent a closet by convincing them that shitty beer is a perk. There's a WeWork two blocks from my office that I walk by all the time. Their office has huge floor to ceiling glass windows so I can see their lobby and the fancy water dispensers with fruit.

I was cracking up that one of the old ladies in Abbi's building knows Bevers because he brings her cheese. Even better was the fact that the other tenant knew Abbi as the girl who pegged Jeremy.

I didn't know We Work was a thing. That's funny. 

The "Jewish Shirley Chisholm of toilets" had got to be one of the best lines I've ever heard.

I just love learning about the big city. The show was still funny without no knowing that.

I've heard ads for WeWork, but the reference went over my head. Now it's even funnier.

I loved the fact that Jeremy trusting Abbi enough to let her peg him is what gained the trust of the all the tenants.

I loved this about the premiere, too, though I think the hair was more noticeable this episode. I wonder if it was just the lighting/whatever of the first ep or if they intentionally made her pits hairier? At any rate, I’m all for nonchalant subversion of the hairless female ideal.

I love that their phone covers matched their own hair, is there really something like that on the market??

She really did! I didn't think it was possibly for her to strut her stuff any more confidently than she usually does, but she was working it in that outfit!

That foot shaving kind of scarred me for life (feet cheese might be my actual worst nightmare!), but I loved the episode, and I am loving this season in general. You can see the characters actually growing, and we are getting closer and closer to a happy sort of ending.
