Critic Reviews for Party Down: Season 2

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (8)

Party Down's appeal lies in its acute understanding of actors as insecure extroverts, writers as bashful narcissists, and unfulfilled artists of all types as quick-draw cynics.

The world of Party Down - and the bizarre smaller worlds the waiters travel to each week - is so entertainingly silly that the show deserves a chance to try going on without its leading man.

Party Down took awhile to jell, but it has hit its stride as one of TV's most finely observed comedies.

The comedy never quite lifts into giddiness, but there are lots of solid, unexpected laughs. And isn't that cause for celebration?

Party Down's strength lies within its wide range of characters. They each represent a different subset of the Hollywood dream, but they also each manage to go behind their face-value archetypes and form an utterly impressive whole.

There is not a single episode in Season Two that is not funny and well written, and not one that isn't also pretty depressing.
