Really fun show
I have to admit, I'm not a fan of Rob Thomas. I was done with Veronica Mars by a few episodes into the 2nd season. The Cupid remake was pretty awful despite some decent memories of the Jeremy Piven original. I never have or will see the new 90210; hell, I only ever saw fifteen or twenty minutes if the original. Party Down, on the other hand, is a real fun and funny show. PD presents us with a broad range of characters and situations rife with comedic (not to mention humiliatingly uncomfortable) potential. The characters are exactly the sort of people you might expect to find working for a Hollywood caterer: hasbeens and wannabes. With Henry and Casey, they even managed to toss in a bit of a non-contrived romantic subplot a la Pam and Jim from The Office. I wish we could get full 22 episode seasons of Party Down. Good going Rob Thomas and company.
