420: Comedy Central’s Pot-filled Programing with Broad City Season Finale and Time Traveling Bong Premiere| 0
This 4/20 is a particularly epic one for the Broad City squad. Tonight marks the season 3 finale for Broad City (10 p.m. ET/PT), capping a season full of weed induced antics and hijinks. Immediately following is the premiere of Time Traveling Bong (10:30 p.m. ET/PT), a history-trotting comedy starring Paul W. Downs, Ilana Glazer, and a time traveling bong, making for one kushy hour of television courtesy of Comedy Central.
Broad City’s Abbi and Ilana have been through some tribulations this season, with the finale finding the BFFs escaping NYC and on a trek to Israel. It’s been interesting to watch Abbi and Ilana navigate more difficult situations and cope with the consequences of their seemingly consequence-free lifestyles. How Abbi and Ilana come out the other end of a season filled with break-ups, breakdowns, and Hillary Clinton has yet to be determined, but if their current arc is any indicator of what’s to come, Glazer and Jacobson are poised to take their series in new directions.
Time Traveling Bong was created and written by Glazer, Downs, and Lucia Aniello (Broad City writer/director). The show centers around Jeff and Sharee (Downs and Glazer), two bored stoners who find themselves in possession of a bong that allows them to travel to the past, giving new meaning to #hightimes. When the bong breaks the heroic potheads find themselves bouncing from historical event to historical event, as they try to toke back to the future. The three episode miniseries premieres tonight and will roll out over the next three nights.
In honor of Comedy Central’s night of pot-filled programming we revisit three of Broad City’s finer marijuana moments of the season for your 4/20 pleasure.
Episode 1: Two Chainz
Opening montage split screen of Abbi and Ilana going about their daily bathroom business, which consists of smoking spliffs in the tub and hitting bongs on the pot.
Episode 4: Rat Pack
Ilana throws a party to raise money for an exterminator. She scours her apartment for weed, finding nugs in her vibrator, a secret hole in her wall, inside a rotting bell pepper, in the smallest of Matryoshka dolls, and even in her own curly locks. #WeedKween #WhereDaBudAt
Episode 6: Philadelphia
In a bowling alley in Philadelphia, Ilana bums a vape hit off an elderly bowler then proceeds to aggressively negotiate the sell of a priceless JonBenét Ramsey Beanie Baby in flawless Mandarin, all while rolling a perfect strike.
