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.

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.

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.

Remember the Adam Scott from Step Brothers?

Remember the Adam Scott from Party Down? You will after this.

It's a shame when TV series exaggerate their original characters to such a warped and unpleasant version of themselves in later seasons of what started out as a promising series. Think Friends, Parks & Rec, Community, blah blah blah.

This is solid, situational comedy, with great characters, some awesome cameos, and very well acted and sharp writing.

I own both seasons. Not a lot of humor out their in my wheelhouse. But this cast, the various environments they cater in and no one character is type cast. Each character has ups, downs, moments of triumph, of failure, of being the hero, the villain, the observer, the indifferent.

Buy it. Do it.

I was up one night after work and saw this show on tv on demand so i watched the entire first season in 1 night,then the following week the second season came out on showtime(or starz) and i was like oh sweet. So i watched it every week,and i just love this in every aspect. It has humor that is just over the top while still carrying a story that is deep. I enjoyed it thoroughly and i hope they make another season,which i don't think they will. Or at least a movie. There are alot of todays best comedians and actors/actress in this show,cameos in every episode by different great people.This show literally makes me laugh hard. If you know about it i suggest you grab it.
