    Party Down

    Im sorry if there is already a thread on this show, but I couldnt find one.

    I just started watching last week and flew through season 1 and caught up to newest episodes of season 2. For anyone who may not know of this show I would suggest giving it a chance. You can watch all episodes on Netflix or some free websites. I have heard a few people mention it, but mostly people I talk to arent really aware of its existence. I hope other people outside of my friends are watching though because this show is great and I would love it to stay on the air.

    Aside from the seemingly cheesy name, the show sports a terrific cast of familiar faces from random shows and movies like Adam Scott (the hardass brother from Step Brothers), Jane Lynch (Only in the first season though), Martin Starr (who played Bill Haverchuck in Freaks and Geeks), Lizzy Caplan (also from Freaks and Geeks), and Ken Marino (the stepdad from Role Models, he was also in Reno 911). All of these characters, plus a few others, play a group of struggling actors, writers, comedians... all of which work for a catering company to pay the bills while waiting for their big breaks. A simple premise, yet one that provides a good platform for humor. It is smart writing and silly jokes woven neatly through their bitter and yet forgiving relationships and interactions.

    Give it a chance for at least a few episodes. Hopefully you'll like it and we wont lose another quality show, while ridiculous programs like Kendra or the Kardashians get picked up for yet another season of nothingness.
    If you come at the king, you best not miss.

    i love this show... the only thing worth watching on friday nights. i also love that jane lynch isn't in season 2... because i hate that wretched btch!

    when i first watched this show during last season's premier (the pilot), i thought it would be some halfassed production with a cast full of ties to the ferrell/apayow crew. instead, i got a really well-written, hilarious show with a dynamic cast of characters that mesh well together and routinely make me laugh.

    Love this show, doubt it will come back for a third season since barely anyone watches it.

    I started watching this on Netflix streaming a few days ago. I love it so far. Its from the creator of Veronica Mars, so I always figured it would be good, just never got around to watching it since I don't have Starz. Hope it gets picked up for a 3rd season.

    I find Jane Lynch to be creepy.

    Love the show but I doubt we see another season. The ratings suck and with Scott leaving for Parks and Rec, Hansen leaving with a pilot of his being picked up by ABC (or NBC), and possibly Caplan leaving as well, the core of the show is pretty much lost. Feel bad for Marino and co.

    Thats too bad, I was really enjoying this show. I love Parks and Rec too, but Scott's character isnt even that enjoyable thus far, I would much prefer him to just stay on PD. Its kind of a shame that its on Starz because its just bound to get poor ratings since not many people have it.

    Sucks, but not shocking at all. No way it could go on without Adam Scott.
