Cherry Bang: Melanie, do the moves.
Melanie Rosen: Those are my moves, kid. I mean, they're the moves that got me cast in the porn dance party in Body Double.

Evidently, the focus will be on the rivalry between Ruth (Alison Brie) and Debbie (Betty Gilpin), which makes for great conflict. Also moved into a more prominent role is Cherry (Sydelle Noel) as the fitness trainer. And then there's Marc Maron, master agitator, putting everyone at each there's throats. So lovably hateful.

It doesn't have the nudity or action of the pilot and feels like strict setup, but that groundwork alone holds promise. And Maron continues to steal the show.

6/10
