Jane Lynch, Lizze Caplan, Ken Marino, and Adam Scott star in a show about hapless caterers trying to make it big in Hollywood. Under-appreciated and very funny.

This show was recommended to me by a friend and boy did it not disappoint. If you like the Office, Parks and Rec etc you will find this show really funny. It's a bummer that it's only two seasons.

Maybe I'm just the wrong age group for this (too old) ... I did not find it very funny or very enjoyable - or very creative.

Lots of profanity and sexual references - (might appeal to those still mentally in Junior High School)

There are many, many jokes - but most of them are those negative kind of jokes that rely on something bad happening to someone to be funny. Just not my style.

Basically this is a group of mess-ups - disrespectful, sex obsessed, drug using, inconsiderate, selfish and uncaring - Ha Ha Ha! Really? What so funny about that? I read and hear about people like this in the news everyday ...

I liked "The Office" because of its absurdity whereas this show goes too far for my comedic taste.

The best and funniest I ever saw was "Flight of the Concords".

But to each his own.

If you're a fan of 30 Rock, The Office, or Parks and Rec - check out this hilarious series. You'll recognize lots of familiar faces including Adam Scott and Jane Lynch.

The difference between this show and Entourage is that Party Down is very funny, whereas Entourage is boring and nothing happens. Oh, except maybe Turtle goes golfing. What a plot!

Hilarious, especially for anyone who's ever worked in the service industry. Its an awkward kind of humor that may not appeal to everyone - but the first season had me laughing out loud. The show falls a little flat during the second season.
