PARTY DOWN is a fascinating show on several levels. For one thing, it was easily the funniest new show of the 2008-2009 season. It didn't start off that way. The first couple of episodes are OK, but it quickly finds its groove and by the end of the year it is as funny as you could hope for a show to be.

If you are a VERONICA MARS fan, the show is ceaselessly fascinating. The show focuses on a group of Hollywood wannabes and wash outs who work for Party Down Caterers. The manager is played by Ken Marino, who was memorable on VERONICA MARS as shady private eye Vinnie Van Lowe. One of his employees is played by Ryan Hansen, who was the magnificently lame Dick Casablancas. Adam Scott and Jane Lynch, who play two other Party Down caterers, had guest roles on VM. And virtually the entire rest of the cast of VM make guest appearances, from Enrico Colantoni (Keith Mars) to Jason Dohring (Logan Echolls) to Alona Tal (Meg Manning) and many, many others, including Veronica Mars (who has a wonderful turn as the sadistic head of a rival catering company). The show has been renewed for a second season and I'm pretty confident that many, many others from Neptune will put in appearances in the future. None of this is too surprising. One of the co-creators of PARTY DOWN is VERONICA MARS creator Rob Thomas and two writers from that series, John Enbom and Dan Etheridge, also served as co-creators. The final co-creator, Paul Rudd, guest starred. As I said, if you are a fan of VERONICA MARS, you will get a blast at seeing all the actors you have loved from the earlier series.

PARTY DOWN is the flipside of ENTOURAGE. If the latter is about largely undeserving people basking in the glory of another's success, this is about people striving for their own success and failing abysmally.

I really hope the word spreads and Party Down is picked up for more seasons! The show follows caterers in California, as they slog from one depressing event to another. All of them numbly wade their way through tragicomic corporate events, seminars, weddings and birthdays, trying to maintain their dignity while being abused by their employers and serving sub-par food.

All of the waiters are (of course) dreaming of making it big in the entertainment industry. The one exception is their manager, who dreams of one day operating a franchise called Super Crackers (or Soup-OR-Crackers... not sure which). The actors hail from great shows like Freaks and Geeks, The State, and every awesome movie made in the past 15 years (I'm looking at you, Jane Lynch), and are pitch-perfect in every episode. I can't wait for Season 2!

On the basis of the critical acclaim it's received, I recently purchased, sight unseen, this Starz comedy series about a catering company staffed by actor wannabes and has-beens. Conclusion: in terms of intensity and frequency of LOL situations and lines, it's probably the funniest sit-com I've seen since The Office (way better in that respect than 30 Rock, which I also dig). It's a shame that it's on Starz because so few people will see it, but it's available on DVD and I encourage you to take a look.

...which is not a bad thing by any means. It takes a couple of episodes to get the gist of the short,punchy episodes (similar to Arrested Development in this way) but after a few shows, you will be hooked. A great motley bunch of characters, and if you love Jane Lynch in Glee, check out the other more manic side to her personality in this show. This is a tad like Clerks for the catering industry, but each show is so full of cameos from huge actors, it is impossible not to love it. Another great series from Rob Thomas, whose work is completely underrated in America.

....because you might just laugh it off. Party Down is quite possibly the funniest thing I have ever seen. Not for the squeamish; frequently raunchy, always hysterical. Every cast member shines.

I started watching Party Down based on a recommendation from a friend and found the show to be incredibly funny. The basic idea of the show is that a group of unemployed actors, writers, and former stars all come together as part of a catering company. In Episode 1 of Season 1, they are catering a party at the home of a couple who live in a gated community called Willow Canyon. The crew acts in a totally inappropriate manner by pretty much every defintion of the word including to the couple's daughter and guests. There is a really great pool scene that you won't want to miss either. A great start to what seems to be a great series.

Party Down is hilarious. Especially Season 1, and apparently there is a movie in the works to add a little closure to the series that failed to hit it big while on the air. I love this show because the characters are so real, and the situations they are in often start out normal before evolving into the most bizarre, hysterical situations dreamed up for a catering crew. I also love Ron and his big dream of owning a Souper Crackers. Must watch for anyone that has worked in the food-service industry, or just for anyone with a sense of humor.

I've never seen Party Down before, and I recently acquired a Starz subscription so I was really excited to binge-watch, as I've heard great things about the show. Season 1 did not live up to its expectations, it is funny-ish, but never LOL. Maybe it's because I had really high expectations, I seriously came in intending to get mad/sad/depressed about its cancellation like many people did when the show originally aired, but no. It's been a while since I finished season 1 and I am in no hurry to get to season 2.
