美國勵志影集|影集《破產姐妹》2 Broke Girls

看似瘋瘋癲癲的女主角Max其實非常有一套她個人的做人法則,她不走真善美那一套。如果誰的行為很流氓或惡霸,她沒有機會讓別人把她當軟柿子。她的名言像是 “If you’re going to act like an ass, I’m going to treat you like an ass.” “ I don’t take crap from anyone, so that makes people think I’m rebellious. I’m not. I’m just not a pushover.”而生於富裕之家但父親入獄頓時無家可家的Caroline因為Max的收留,而成為室友並在同一間餐廳工作。


《新世紀福爾摩斯》愛情喜劇《A to Z》英劇《Mr. Selfridge》《塞爾福里奇先生》 美劇House of Cards《紙牌屋》 (Parade’s End)《隊列之末》   2 broken girls《破產女孩》這些都是很多人討論的影集。

這一篇要介紹的是美國影集 2 broken girls《破產女孩》,這一部詼諧和勵志的成分都很高,好像亂能夠打亂觀眾一些鑽牛角尖的細胞。劇情提要:迷數兩位女服務生白手起家奮勇逆流而上的勵志故事,她們活的很有味道很有志氣,兩位女主角的友情大概就是這部戲最迷人的地方。

▲pushover的英文解釋:  a person or anything which is easily taken advantage of or defeated

    After a bad break-up, Jess, an offbeat young woman, moves into an apartment loft with three single men. Although they find her behavior very unusual, the men support her – most of the time. Schmidt is the funniest character on the show. He always makes me laugh!
    You can watch new girl @ or any other shows.
