I thought I'd sit down and check out the first episode last Sunday; twelve hours later I had watched then entire series.
Anyone who has been or known an aspiring actor will get this. It's so farcical and yet accurate at the same time.
If you like off-colour humour, check it out.

I picked up Party Down after burning through the complete series of Veronica Mars in about 2 weeks. Rob Thomas is amazing, and his most recent project (Kickstarter campaign; Veronica Mars The Movie) is a testament to that. Party Down is hilarious, quick and smart. Plus, there are a ton of great cameos and all of the actors do an incredible job.

All the episodes are very entertaining, excellent first season, anyone from 17-50 years of age will more than likely enjoy this! Great Cast, Funny, makes you wanna watch the next episode rite after the other.

I was introduced to Party Down after it was cancelled. It speaks to me on so many levels - the style of humour, the acting - and of course for the overall theme. The idea of people striving toward a seemingly impossible end (acting, screenwriting), even after a lifetime of essential failure (Jane Lynch's Constance) or continual frustration (Casey, Roman), is really appealing. I'm not happy that it ended so prematurely, though the final episode offers a sort of hope all the same for at least one of the characters.
From season one, my favourites are probably the pilot ("Willow Canyon Homeowners Annual Party"), "California College Conservative Union Caucus", and... okay, pretty much all of them. Anyway, watch and enjoy and celebrate Ricky Sargulesh together!
