'The Hapley Group': NBC's Attempt at Getting You to Not Forget About Them

Continuing with NBC’s Please Don’t Forget About Our Regular Shows During the Olympics Campaign, they’ve put up another webisode, this time for Parks and Recreation. I don’t know if they’re trying to keep these web installments a secret, but if so, good job NBC. First, they released all four installments of Friday Night at the Luncheonette without really telling anyone. And to get to this video, after first searching on NBC’s website, I had to do a Google search and go through Buzzfeed.

The Parks and Rec web spin-off is The Hapley Group, “an unrehearsed and largely uniform roundtable discussion of the day’s events,” featuring Pawnee’s elite.

I love seeing Ira and The Douche outside of their studio (they’re just the worst), but if I were to cast my ideal talk show with the show’s minor characters, I’d have a different group in mind.
