Have You Been Keeping Up With FiPS's Favorite Web Series, The Slope?

I sure have.

In fact, I love the two women who make this show so much that I actually clam up when I see either one of them walking around the neighborhood, much like that one time John Turturro sat three feet away from me in a near-empty Prospect Park early one morning and it was like that scene in Stand By Me when Gordie is alone on the railroad tracks and suddenly sees a deer and realizes how beautiful nature is and how fucked up life can be and he cries a little, and then the movie ends with River Phoenix waving goodbye to his friends and it's creepy as shit because he's dead.

What just happened?

Right. The Slope.

Now on season 2 of the series, creators Ingrid and Desiree have taken on Park Slope issues perfect for the short episodic format, like the morality of sneaking someone into the Food Coop, or the discomfort of running into an acquaintance while trying to discreetly shop for harnesses at Babeland.

The latest episode, featured above, is so far my favorite for no less than three reasons, but listing things in threes are sexy, so here we go: it playfully pokes fun at Beacon's Closet, stars that adorable young woman from The Squid and the Whale and lists the (presumably fictitious) "Eight Seasons of Fashion" that BC employees strictly follow, which include "fedora, ugly sweater, neon spandex, grandma muumuu and ironic t-shirt season."

In short: Watch this show
