Starting today, anyone with an internet connection and 23 minutes of free time can stream the season finale of The Hotwives of Orlando, the original Hulu series parodying the sprawling Real Housewives shows and the various franchises’ train-wreck stars. Like the reunion specials capping off Real Housewives seasons, the seventh episode of Hotwives reconvenes the titular narcissists (played by Casey Wilson and others) for a salacious update hosted by the show’s Andy Cohen–alike (Paul Scheer).

Six years ago, Maria Bamford launched The Maria Bamford Show, a novel web series that stands as one of the best of its era. We've seen a few new web offerings from Bamford since then, and her latest work takes her to Funny or Die, where she is the co-creator and star of a web series called The Program. The Program stars Bamford as Peace, an upbeat woman whose"PhD in Medieval Studies" and her "real problem with working" have landed her $200,000 in debt. To help combat her financial situation, she runs "Debtors Anonymous", a version of Alcoholics Anonymous catered to people who are deep into debt. Debtors Anonymous attracts a few familiar faces, including Oscar Nuñez of The Office fame, former SNLer Jerry Minor, and Melinda Hill, who co-created the show alongside Bamford. Bamford and Hill have a long creative history together; they co-founded L.A. stand-up show What's Up Tiger Lily? »

When we’re not talking about the many, many concept episodes Community has done, there’s a very specific and successful structure the sitcom has followed over the years. It’s easy to forget Community got its start with a simple three-plot formula, but “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking” should be a gentle reminder of how great that simplicity can be. While we may all rave and applaud paintball and bottle episodes, there needs to be a sense of normalcy for those more extravagant episodes to have any context. We’ve already had three concept episodes in a row, so “Networking” is a breath of fresh air needed only because to continue at the pace Community had set for itself would’ve resulted in a winded season. Think of these smaller scale episodes as necessary rest if you must, but don’t discard them as ineffective.
In fact, “Networking” is a fairly busy episode. »
