The Hotwives of Orlando: Season 1 Reviews

February 6, 2019
As a result, this parody shows just how little these characters care about one another, while revealing how toxic our relationship as viewers is with the Real Housewives.

That's why the Hotwives seems like it could be the lowest form of comedy, making fun of something that is already a parody of itself. However, it's the astute attention to detail and the obvious love of the genre that saves it.

The series is amusing enough to qualify as a good summer diversion-if not exactly must-see TV.

Hotwives has nearly the same tone, style, and feel as Burning Love, making it a wise choice for Hulu to push so aggressively.

I have so few complaints about this show, I'm kind of shocked. Everything works for me, from the always-changing opening to the non sequitur "Coming Up" segments to the over-edited flashback clips.

Hotwives is knowing and funny, and a great showcase for many talented comedians who both star in it and appear as guests.

The spoof gives some of Hollywood's best comedic actresses room to play.

Much like a low-budget reality show, Hotwives is a low-budget parody; even the scenes' movement from funny to awkward and back to funny could be seen as a faithful adaptation of the unscripted genre.

The plotlines here - a fund-raiser for a charity that provides high-heel shoes for dogs occupies the first episode - are kind of amusing, but in general the show looks as if it were far more fun to make than it is to watch.

If you love the comedy stylings of Burnett, Gilda Radner and Kristen Wiig, you will want to visit Hotwives.

The half-hour episodes feel a bit like a Saturday Night Live sketch stretched to its limits - fun for a while, then a trifle repetitive.

Writers Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider clearly know the source material they're mocking and do a great job of getting laughs out of the absurdities of the Real Housewives shows.
