Party Down

Postby JimmySkip » Thu Jul 01, 2010 2:34 pm

I have to throw out a recommendation for the STARZ series Party Down. Funniest show I've seen since Arrested Development. Just got cancelled after its 2nd season, but those 2 seasons are worth a look. If anyone has Netflix, the entirety can be watched instantly from Netflix's site. You won't be sorry.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble as it is a great show BUT Starz just announced that they are not renewing the series for another season along with Gravity. Really goes to show you what the television execs know even for the pay-for channels.

EDIT: Just realized the cancellation was mentioned in the original post. This is what a July 4th weekend of brain/body damage will do to you.

I'm pretty sure they were interested in bringing it back, but the actors who play Henry and Kyle have signed on for other shows. Now if only Martin Starr would get launched onto network TV, I'd consider the show a success.

I think I've seen most of them find new roles on TV... Ken Marino and Megan Mullally are ready to go on Childrens Hospital (Adult Swim). Show looks great. Adam Scott has taken a full-time role on Parks & Rec I believe, another outstandin comedy. Not sure about "kyle" but my guess is that he will go on to films.

I'm just trying to find myself some more Lizzy Caplan.
