Favorite 'Broad City' lead character: Abbi or Ilana?
Who can't relate to Abbi? She's demeaned by her faux-spiritual gym boss, dissed by lame dudes, and semi-horrified by constantly having to sacrifice her dignity in her quest for work and love. We've ALL brawled with that roommate's nightmare boyfriend who's taken up permanent residence on our couch. We've all been regularly rendered speechless by that gorgeous neighbor. We've all suffered the humiliation of that toilet that won't flush. Abbi is our everywoman anti-hero.
"I'm an adult and I'm responsible. Let's go get some candy." —Abbi
Ilana, on the other hand, is either a trainwreck or a glorious feminist freedom fighter (or both). Proud stoner and sexual adventurer, she couldn't give less of a shit about her job or what anyone thinks of her wildly inappropriate outfit. When Ilana wants to dance, she dances. When she wants to smoke dope, she gets high as a kite. The constant in her life is her devotion to Abbi, whom she kind of wants to marry (or at least hook up with). Ilana lives life without shame. She just DGAF and for many that makes her a total hero.
"Who would you rather go down on you: Michael Buble or Janet Jackson?" —Ilana
