Critics Consensus

Glazer and Jacobson give the people exactly what they want in Broad City's final season - relatable content, questionable intimacy, and ingenious escapades through the glorious squalor of IRL NYC.

It's sweet and sincere, and though it feels real to them in the moment, it's only for TV.

Broad City is in some ways a studiously small show: Its focus, over its five remarkable seasons, has been the wacky adventures and, more often, the wacky misadventures of its two protagonists... The pair's friendship is total, and totalizing.

It was their itchy youths that made us fall in love with Broad City, but it's also been a bittersweet delight watching Abbi and Ilana evolve.

Overall, though, most of the episode comes off as refreshingly unstressed about social media's effects. Or, at least, it leans into what makes something like Instagram Stories so addictive and joyful.

Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are taking us out on a high, with a series of episodes that capture their warm, raunchy friendship as strongly as ever.

It's exactly the kind of thing these professional storytellers should deliver to their target audience.

Broad City [...] repeatedly asserted that the primary, most beautiful, intimate, and meaningful romance of your life can be the relationship you have with your best friend

Broad City, if I ever take the time to look back and take stock, will likely rank as one of my favorite shows to write about, and most definitely to watch.

Broad City's final season is funny, gross, and wonderfully touching, just like the other four. Strap on, I mean in for the last adventures with our so very special girls.

Mar 21, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

For all its ridiculous plotlines and borderline homoerotic odes to female friendship, Broad City has always been most poignant about its generation's economic anxieties.

It's such a flex to put not only DuVall but also Sasha Velour and Alan Cumming... playing ALAN CUMMING in your "coming out" episode.

What Broad City is (and Ilana would undoubtedly be happy to hear this) is a mood.

    Abbi and Ilana have done it again and that final episode had me in a ball. These two are ridiculous but everything feels so real.

    Garbage. Is the one word I would say suits this show. Two girls who think being ugly and gross are ingredients to being hilarious.
  • Apr 17, 2019
    So I was in jail and this came on. You think being in jail, that things can't get much worse. Nope. This made it worse.

    Highly satisfying final season with many fun call backs.

    Broad City concludes with perhaps its strongest season, giving fans exactly what they want while also being a bit more tender in the presentation. Abbi and Ilana's adventures through millennial-grazed New York are as funny as ever, and while at times one could wish that it was a little more observational and a little less preachy (admit it, the cursory feminism can be grating), the writing is at a creative apex this year. From the premiere episode that's almost completely told through Instagram postings, the show's creativity never diminishes, and there is a melancholy behind the laughter, as we know this pair won't be together for too much longer. Early on this season, it's announced that the two will be going their separate ways, but this arc to the finale is the most emotional the series has ever gotten, and it ends in a cyclic way that really captures the importance of friendship. Broad City will be missed, but with the 2010s nearing an end and many millennials entering their 40s, the show has reached an end both symbolic and logical.

    These ladies lost their way after the second season. The whole Hillary cameo was the point where I was fully out. The actors are the opposite of charismatic and only garner attention through pity or self indulgent relation to characters people don���t even realize are losers. At least workaholics was funny.

    I have been a fan of these talented comediennes and watched every season of Broad City but after two episodes of season 5 I have already turned off the auto-record. Episode one was obviously done on the cheap using their own phones as cameras and the script was woeful. Episode two was almost back to the form of old but lost me at the 'city office' routine, I mean that is just lazy script writing and the acting again was quite bad. I can see why the show was not renewed for another season as the girls have just run out of ideas I think. I do wish them well in the future as they are both great talents, with Abbi Jacobson the stand out and sure for a bright future. Ilana Glazer just continues to go for the cheap laugh and can't help but to over act but she shows promise in some scenes. Best of luck girls, time for something new !!
