Netflix Instant Pick – Vol. 2 – Party Down

Almost everyone I know is a big fan of the show Parks and Recreation. If you’re not already watching that show, you really should be.  If you gave up on it in Season 1, it is SO much better than that now.  I had given up on it in Season 2 because I was boycotting NBC after what they did to Conan.  Except I wasn’t really boycotting because I still watched 30 Rock and Community. Long story short, watch Parks and Recreation.

What was the point I was trying to make?  Oh yeah, since Adam Scott joined the cast of Parks and Rec last year, he’s become one of those people that you want to know more about.  (Or maybe that’s just me.  He is darn cute, isn’t he?  Just look at that punum!)

He’s got those elfin features and spiky hair and a smirk on his face.  IT’S IRRESISTIBLE.  A girl can only be so strong.

I was in search for a new Adam Scott fix, and I found out he was in another TV show that was on Starz for two seasons.  It’s called Party Down, which is about a bunch of wanna-be actors who work for a catering firm in Hollywood.  Everyone is trying to get their big break except for Adam Scott’s character, Henry, who is remembered for being “that guy” in “those beer ads”.  He has given up on acting and is resigned to being a bartender.

Because this show was on Starz, there is cursing – they actually say the actual F word, which is awesome – and there are boobs and butts.  If you think you can handle this sort of naughtiness, then you will enjoy the show.  (Disclaimer:  you do not see Adam Scott’s butt.)

I’ve just finished watching Season 1, and started Season 2 tonight.  I got totally sucked in and watch the entire Season 1 this weekend.

It’s fun to try and spot the guest star.  My favorite was the appearance of one of the McPoyle brothers from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia as a goth rock star in the first episode of Season 2.

I’d also like to know if it’s weird that I think the blonde McPoyle brother cleans up really well and is actually really sexy in a strange way.  I think I need help…

Oh and another connection to Sunny is that the shows are directed by Fred Savage.  So all in all, if you like off-the-wall TV shows, you’ll enjoy this one a lot.

One last bit of information for those of you who like Glee – this show also features Jane Lynch.

Here’s the trailer:
