Why do so many of us love 'Broad City' and hate-love 'Girls'? - Los Angeles Times
This broad is married! Ilana Glazer is best known for her ultra-tight relationship with her Broad City costar and IRL comedy partner-in-crime. The creators and stars behind Broad City, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, shared in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly how they. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer's forays into directing this season have been an excellent evolution for both artists and for Broad City.
Tellingly, in the final moments of Season 5, we see each of the titular girls on their own, pursuing lives that increasingly split them further from each other and — possibly — closer to maturity and happiness. By Meredith Blake Mar 16, 8: Created by comedians Jacobson and Glazer, the series centers on two characters who are best friends forever as they smoke weed and find themselves in ridiculously crude, sometimes-hallucinatory, perpetually amusing situations.
Both Abbi and Ilana struggle, often fruitlessly, to drag themselves forward into something resembling progress, only to end each episode as developmentally arrested as they began. Yet that predictable haplessness that audiences love about "Broad City" often spurs consternation when it crops up on "Girls.

When Ilana loses would-be boyfriend Lincoln in the episode called "Burning Bridges" it devastates her, but nowhere near as much as the thought that she might be losing Abbi as well.Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson take Chelsea Kayaking - Chelsea - Netflix
It's a sentiment that also arises in the "Girls" season finale when, in the midst of an apartment-destroying argument, Jessa tells Adam that she hates him for taking her away from Hannah. While part of Jessa does seem to mourn the loss of her relationship with Hannah, when the episode concludes, she's still by Adam's side, not Hannah's.
Abbi and Ilana, however, are as solid as ever at the end of the "Burning Bridges" episode, and when the season concludes, they're still side by side even if they are in police custody.

Abbi and Ilana's relationship is the type of forever friendship so many of us yearn to cultivate, one that stands the test of time whether we grow as people or not. Plus, it just looks like fun to be them. By Robert Lloyd Apr 20, 1: As we watch Hannah sabotage opportunity after opportunity or Jessa self-destruct for the thousandth time, their lives seem caught in a hellish loop, a Sisyphean fate we actively fear. We look at Hannah and her friends and worry, "They're just like me; I hate them.
Compared to her best friend Abbi, she is more free-spirited, sexually liberated and much more bold and confident. However, every escapade has unintended consequences—which usually impact Abbi, who is reluctantly dragged into Ilana's schemes.
