Dating Parody

I decided to start this month by watching a comedy all about dating. I especially wanted to watch this because it was written in part by a couple of my favorite writers from College Humor, Emily and Murph. This particular show isĀ Hot Date. I’ve been meaning to watch this for a while when it was announced on YouTube, so I’m happy to have finally gotten around to watching it. The two of them are absolutely hilarious together. It was also hilarious that the majority of the characters are portrayed by the two of them. All of these characters would be a part of the same friend group, but somehow never showed up in the same place at the exact same time. For no reason what so ever, I found that the funniest part of the entire show. I also played a bit on popular culture and “standards” of dating and bringing it into the millennial culture. It’s a short 10 episode series on Netflix so you can make an afternoon out of it. I think the only thing you will regret is not watching this show sooner.
