Editorial Reviews

The catering crew from Party Down is back. And they’re all dressed up and going nowhere. The all-new season finds our dreamers stuck working for tips while struggling to get the life they really want.

Now that Henry (Adam Scott) is finally the manager, he’s not sure how to feel about it. However, after failing to start his own business, Ron (Ken Marino) would trade places with Henry in a heartbeat. Back from her stint doing stand-up on a cruise ship, Casey (Lizzy Caplan) is hoping to break out as a comedienne. Kyle (Ryan Hansen) is handsome, talented, and on the verge of being a star. At least in his own mind. And Roman (Martin Starr) is still waiting for the world to see his genius. The newest member of the staff, Lydia (Megan Mullally), is in L.A. to achieve stardom for her 13-year-old daughter, Escapade.

Follow this ensemble cast as they work all-new parties, mingle with the guests and dabble in their dramas.

There aren't words to describe the anger I felt when I heard Party Down was canceled after such a solid second season. While I'll admit the first few episodes weren't the show's strongest, the second season ramps up and culminates in a more mature - and hilarious - fashion than even its stellar inaugural season.

Buy these DVDs and make Starz realize what a mistake they've made.

After seeing Season 1 and the way it ended, I figured there was no way Season 2 could live up to its pedigree.

It does. Oh, it does.

The biggest change this season is a reversal of Ron and Henry's roles...which may seem jarring at first, but it's done so well you can hardly complain. Seeing Henry have "Ron moments" is hilarious, through and through...and seeing screw-up/doesn't-care Ron is similarly awesome. Constance (Jane Lynch) is no longer a recurring cast member (she has a guest appearance on the Season Finale) but her replacement, Lydia (Megan Mullaly) is even better imo. While Constance was just a bit too stupid and insane to really be believable, Lydia is that overly-nice Mom type and adds quite an amusing dynamic to the group. She has a few accidently-racist lines that catapulted me into laughter.

Season 2 definitely feels a bit different than Season 1, especially at the beginning (first 4 episodes), but it's in no way a bad change. Sadly, the series was cancelled by the powers that be, probably due to the fact that the show is on a network known for receiving the left-over scraps that HBO passed on. It also aired new episodes at night on Friday if I remember correctly--did they want the show to fail or something?

But yeah--this season's season finale is actually the series finale. That said, it ends on an amazingly positive, wrapped-up note that gave me that feel-good warmth that only a genuinely well-told story can give you.

Not to say I wouldn't lie, cheat, steal, and murder to get even one episode of a Season 3.

I've watched this show start to finish loads of times--probably approaching the 30s now, and I still find new things I didn't notice and it's still funny. This is comedy at its absolute finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprise laughs and hidden depths September 29, 2010
Format:DVD
As with many shows, Party Down will most likely attain mainstream popularity after its demise. Witty dialogue, engaging characters and a slightly skewed sense of humor makes this show a hit. While Jane Lynch's character was practically irreplaceable, the addition of Megan Mullally helped add its own twist to season two. If you didn't watch it on STARZ and you loved shows like Veronica Mars, Cupid, Arrested Development or My So-Called Life, you will love Party Down.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly not renewed. October 27, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Better than a lot of sitcoms on these days it's disappointing it wasn't picked up for a third season, especially since there is no solid resolution to most of the major stories. Season 1 just felt more "conclusive" (if bittersweet) in its ending. Wasted potential. Only having Jane Lynch for one episode of season 2 hurts, because while Megan Mullally was fine she's definitely a downgrade. Lynch and Hansen played off each other so well in season 1, I feel that type of dynamic is largely missing in Season 2. However Season 2 certainly isn't bad. It did have my pick for best episode of the series (Steve Guttenberg's Birthday) as well as a few other very strong episodes.

Created by Rob Thomas it's not nearly as good as Veronica Mars (Season 1 of that show being one of the best seasons of television I've ever seen), and not nearly as bad as his 90210 reboot. I think Thomas just does better when he takes the time to fully flesh out an entire season going in. For fans of Veronica Mars, there is definitely something here for you. As you get to see nearly the entire cast of that show as cast members or guest stars over the course of this series.

The DVDs themselves are pretty bare bones. No commentary (unlike Season 1 which had commentaries for 2 episodes), just a gag reel and a promo. It feels like they're not trying (and I'm guessing, since it didn't get picked up, they weren't). Feels like Starz took the "just be happy it's getting released at all" approach which, while understandable to an extent, is a disservice to the fans.

4 stars for the show
2 stars for the DVD treatment
3 star total.

Our favorite lovable characters are back for a second season of "Party Down," with new gigs, more nudity, and just as many laughs!

"Party Down" plays upon the common stereotype of the Hollywood waiter slash actor. In this comedy series, a group of aspiring young actors, writers, comedians, and musicians work for a catering company named "Party Down," while they are desperately searching for their next big break.

This season starts out a little slow, but be patient! When Ken Marino's character "Ron" returns, the show goes back to being funny. If you caught last season, you know that Team leader Ron (Ken Marino) left to pursuit his dreams of running a "Soup 'R Crackers" restaurant. Well, to his devastation, the business fails miserably! And he comes back to join the crew once again this season (thank goodness!). Also, Casey (Lizzy Caplan) was away performing stand-up on a cruise ship in hopes of finally getting her big break. Unfortunately, things don't really pan out, so she also returns. Not soon after her enthusiastic welcome back, Casey discovers her friend with benefits Henry (Adam Scott) has moved on, and moved up in management. This season we are also joined by a new face and fresh crew member named Lydia (Megan Mullally), who delights us with her sweet attitude and unique voice.

Episodes include:
1. Jackal Onassis Backstage Party
2. Precious Lights Pre-School Auction
3. Nick DiCintio's Orgy Night
4. James Ellison Funeral
5. Steve Guttenberg's Birthday (probably my favorite!)
6. Not on Your Wife Opening Night
7. Party Down Company Picnic
8. Joel Munt's Big Deal Party
9. Cole Landry's Draft Day Party
10. Constance Carmell Wedding (Jane Lynch returns!).

Question!? Doeas anyone think this show was cancelled because...
No, they would not have down CH if PD was still on the air. Besides, they are working on a movie to be released in 2012.
