    I love these two girls and the finale did not shortchange of the laughter and some-touching moments specially when Sophie offered to buy girls clothes.

    I think what has made this series successful so far is the chemistry of the two lead stars and their supporting crew. Olek and Sophie bather never gets old so is Earl telling Han 'too short to be a jockey?" that's hilarious. More than being broke and struggling for money and new lifestyle these girls has made us laugh and cry at the same time. And somehow works as a dysfunctional family.

    Finale was not a disappointment specially when they are on the line and the receptionist keep saying "Caroline Channing" and she ended up being punched... there was of course Max saying her piece to Johnny and lastly girls meeting Martha.

    Isn't MPK part of Sex and the City and knowing that they have good stylist in that show, I was hoping that he might have tapped to one of his designer friends. The gowns are a let down not Met gala material. But what we can all learn from Max, just like this I can let it slide this season since it's the first... they don't need to be pretty they compensate by having great sense of humor and this how the two girls won us over.moreless
  • 1.23/1.24 - 'And Martha Stewart Have a Ball (Part 1 & 2)'

    Absolutely hilarious and a perfect send off for the #1st season. Best hour-long episode in a long time. I loved the shopping sequence with all the music, trying the dresses on, eating fast food, drinking champagne :D it was a little tribute to Pretty Woman, only as Sophie put it: ''I am the Richard Gere character and you two are whores!"

    Do you remember Max's hot BFF Johnny? He's getting married to some new gal and moving to Manhattan, Max even got to meet him at the Ball. The most hilarious thing was when they had to wait (they were NOT on the list) and the annoying lady kept shouting the name CHANNING and one rich woman punched Caroline straight to the gut and Max shoved her LMAO ;) And the appearance of Martha Stewart was flawless as well.

    I had a blast watching this 40-minutes long season finale, looking forward to the #2nd next September. Have a great summer. 10/10moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Max: (to the cops while she and Caroline are riding Chestnut) I can save you the time on the breathalyzer test, no we are not drunk or on some bachelorette party scavenger hunt. Our car broke down in Brooklyn and so we rode over the Brooklyn Bridge and up.
      Officer James: You rode a horse across the Brooklyn Bridge? That's bad ass!
      Officer Mars: Yes, and illegal.
      Max: In that case we took the tunnel.

    • Francine: (after Max and Caroline bring food cart into the ladies bathroom) Hold up, just hold up. What is going on right now? You can't bring food in here.
      Caroline: Oh, it's not food, that would be weird. It's dresses. We have to change into these, 'cuz she has this guy she wants to impress, and I have to change into it, because I'm stalking Martha Stewart. Oh, I'd be a terrible spy.
      Francine: Usually I don't get the long stories until the end of the night, and by then the girls are crying and begging me for wisdom and tic tacs.
      Max: (to Caroline) I'll go first, I have to get two of these (points to her breasts) in one dress. (to Francine) Miss, do you have a shoehorn?

    • Tony, the Cook: Hey pretty girls, I like the way you push around that big steel box. Why don't you come over here and I'll have sex with you!
      Caroline: A display like that really makes you appreciate Oleg's nuance wit.

    • Max: OK, so we can't get in the actual building without being caterers, so we have to change into those uniforms.
      Caroline: Wait, You never mentioned anything about a rent-a-clothes situation.
      Max: Small price to pay for us making it.
      Caroline: Is it? Is it a small price to pay?

    • Johnny: From now on, when I think of you, I'm gonna think of you in this and not the uniform.
      Max: You know from now on, maybe you shouldn't think of me at all.
