  • Disappointing episode.

    Party Down has had some really, really funny episodes, but they have also had a plethora of not so good episodes during its brief run. The show should really look into bringing in some new writers because having the same people pen every single week is going to result in some filler episodes, and with only 10 a year that is unacceptable. British sitcoms are often written by one writer, but they only have 6 a season. Larry David writes every episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, but since the dialogue is unscripted that allows things to maintain freshness and originality.
  • Another good example

    I have to disagree with the previous review. Babes and mobsters... They sounded more like Romanians or smth. And their names... not slavic. Still I totally agree that it was one of the best episodes of the season. Watching the celebrity-team dealing all the criminals and stuff was very funny. Or Roman reading the script - very good as well.
    The start of the show wasn't that brilliant, but then it got better and better. I started watching it because of Lizzy Caplan, I've liked her a lot since The Class. So now she is very cool as Casey. At first I didn't like some characters that much, like Constance for example, but now I'm a big fan of the show and I can assure you the show is very funny.
  • The funniest episode so far!

    Couldn't disagree more with the previous negative review: to me, this episode is the funniest of the whole season; the one that really made me laugh out loud several times. Sexual tension, jealousy, fear of dismemberment, hot Russian babes… what more do you need?!? Steven Weber as the retarded, psychopathic Russian mobster and his cohort of henchmen obsessed with Hollywood celebrities are just hilarious, as are all the little inside jabs at third rate movies and actors ("I saw Dingle Berries a hundred times!").

    Let's hope the show keeps this awesome level during the second season (too bad Constance is leaving; the new waitress is more annoying than funny).
