While I still don’t have a complete handle on what/why Pop is, I do know that the hilarious new show Florida Girls airs on it. Having just spent a month living in Clearwater and being no stranger to Florida trailer park madness, this show hits close to home. It follows four 20-something roommates who share a trailer and a workplace in Clearwater, FL. They are slightly on the trashy side, but the most responsible of the quartet, Shelby, is determined to get the money together for her GED to get the heck out of the town eventually. They’ve been airing 2 episodes every Wednesday, so the ten-episode season one will be done quickly.

Last week’s second episode started with the girls dressed in super fashionable black outfits, scraping together the $2.79 for a small soda and a lottery ticket. They won $800 with the scratch-off lotto ticket. They were in the fash black outfits cause they were going to the funeral of local party guru, Josh Travis. Shelby tried to encourage the other girls to invest in GED classes too. Jayla noticed a guy that was in an expensive watch, and it turned out to be Erica’s brother, Matty, all cleaned up and sober. Jesus saved him. Shelby roped the other girls into going on a kayaking trip with Matty. She hoped that maybe religion would inspire them to invest their lotto winnings smarter. Jayla pretended to be Christian to get Matty interested in her. Erica found a blunt roach in the sand and thought Jesus wants her to invest her money in becoming a pot dealer.

Kaitlin accidentally let all the kayaks float away, stranding them on the island. Matty snapped and lost his shit, telling Jesus to eff off and then chasing the pastor who convinced him of his new faith around the beach. When Kaitlin realized they had been on Josh Travis’s party island the whole time, she declared that Jesus wanted her to invest her money in an island party. The girls pointed out to Shelby maybe she just was too scared to get her GED without them, and she confessed they were right. The episode ended with Shelby deciding to swim for the mainland as her friends cheered her on. About ten yards out, she paused to turn and give them the finger. Why is this so relatable?

On tonight’s first episode, “What’s Your Favorite Boat,” the girls get a taste of the privileged life when they visit Breezy Lopez, a rich girl from high school; a glimpse of Breezy’s idyllic family makes Shelby realize the cracks in her relationship with her mother.

Then on the second episode, “Stop Pretending to Read,” when Shelby buys a book that makes her realize the girls have been objectified by men, she tries to tackle the issue at her bikini bartending job.

Don’t miss the Florida fun tonight on Pop at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I guess Wednesdays are my strongest TV night right now, ’cause I’ll also be watching the penultimate Archer: 1999 episode plus Full Frontal with Samantha Bee & Krypton.
