What to Watch: 5 Web Series Worth Checking Out

Front Desk Fred ArmisenFred Armisen (Portlandia) gesticulates wildly while attempting to check into a hotel, Yelp reviews go viral, Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld) takes Ricky Gervais (The Office) on a fear-filled joy ride, and Marvel All Winners Squad makes its debut.

The Front Desk | Bradley Fishbourne’s (Armisen) vow of silence combined with a mistaken identity problem make this episode the funniest one to date.

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee | Gervais holds on for dear life as Seinfeld zips him around New York in his 1967 Austin Healy 3000.

Real Actors Read Yelp Reviews | Actors (real ones, mind you) hilariously perform dramatic readings of yelp reviews on camera. Our fave evaluation was the one containing the phrase “incinerated everything in my intestines.”

Coffey Chat | Shannon Coffey has a really weird sense of humor. And we dig it. In this episode, she talks about drawing. She also introduces us to her handsome Cat Boyfriend. For real.

Marvel All Winners Squad | Featuring non-mainstrean superheroes such as Howard the Duck and Squirrel Girl, this motley crew answers to a guy named Mr. Fish. We anxiously await their first assignment.
