Orgasms are down 140 per cent since the election — in the Broad City world. On the heels of episode five where we saw Peri Gilpin (a.k.a. Roz from Frasier) playing Abbi’s mom and struggling with her sexual life, comes Ilana’s conflict: the self-professed “cum kween” hasn’t had an orgasm since the election.
“You’re traumatized by the fact that a sexual assault ragging steak salesmen has become our president,” says Ilana’s coach, Betty (played by Marcella Lowery).
The episode attacks Trump, bleeping his name out the entire time as promised, while paying homage to female leaders like Oprah, Serena Williams, Hillary Clinton, Malala Yousafzai, Yoko Ono and Rihanna to name a few.
Taking the whole bleeping thing to the next level, show creators Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer announced that they have a new Google Chrome extension available on Broadcity.com.
“Y’ALL!! introducing our T*#&p-No-More browser extension — it bleeps out his name whereva ur surfing on the web. Check out how-to. LOVE YA!!”
That’s right, the word “Trump” will be changed to “Tr***p” wherever you go on the web. Glazer has said their decision to bleep the “game show president’s” name is about not wanting to share air time or hear the word.
“We just got to a point in real life where we’re talking about the current administration, we’re talking about Trump, and it just feels so gross,” Glazer said at the Broad City TCA talk.
Season four has been full of surprises, from cameos by Shania Twain and RuPaul, to a half-animated episode four. Next week Abbi, Ilana, her mom Bobbi, and her brother Eliot take a trip to Florida to clean out their grandmother Esther’s apartment. Rumour has is Fran Drescher will be guest starring.
