I have seen the commercials promoting the show and didn't bother to watch for it--it's not that it looked 'bad,' just that it didn't appear to cater to me. I happened to catch episode seven, though, and it had me laughing several times with its circumstantial comedy. I decided to seek out the rest of the series and have seen up to episode three so far--I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I've noted some people liken it to Workaholics and I can attest that it has that pace and comedic tone. Though frankly, Workaholics has lost its luster to me after season two and I no longer look forward to new episodes. I do, however, look forward to continue watching this show. I could also see it compared somewhat to New Girl. If you like either of those shows, Broad City is worth a try.
If you hate the idea of hipsters (as so many other reviews have pointed out and because of which have given scalding ratings), don't be put off--it's very easy to overlook once you get into it. Rather than the whole condescending, superiority-complex-laden attitude of the prototypical hipster, the two main characters set a vibe that they're just being the way they are.
