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.Read more ›
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!

This show is great and all the characters are a hot mess. Wish they never stopped making it!Published 2 months ago by Dakota
Funny, great to see so many familiar faces, but not the absolutely essential, seminal comedy I was led to believe it was. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Devourer of Books
