      Heather Havrilesky This comedy not only features great jokes and dynamic dialogue but also rolls out provocative stories week after week, thanks to the depth of the show's central premise. May 16, 2018 Full Review Dan Fienberg HitFix The writing, which simulates the illusion of off-the-cuff improv while being, by all accounts, tightly scripted, has been matched flawlessly to the individual comic talents of what is an exceptional cast. May 15, 2018 Full Review Genevieve Koski AV Club It's not like anything else on TV. Rated: A May 15, 2018 Full Review Tom Gliatto People Magazine The comedy never quite lifts into giddiness, but there are lots of solid, unexpected laughs. And isn't that cause for celebration? May 16, 2018 Full Review Anna Deavere Smith Paste Magazine 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. May 16, 2018 Full Review Chen Hadad PopMatters 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. Rated: 7/10 May 16, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Edgar V i thought season 1 was a tad funnier, but 2 is a lot more well rounded Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/23/23 Full Review Andrei D Cannot sustain the pace Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/23 Full Review Corey W A noticeable vacuum was left by the departure of Jane Lynch's character Constance, but the void was filled by other comedy legends like Megan Mullaly and Jennifer Coolidge, saving this party admirably. Season two is a lot more of the same, though some of the dynamics have shifted to keep it fresh. Adam Scott has been promoted to Party Down team leader, against his better judgement, whereas Ken Marino is off running his Super Salad restaurant... or is he? Party Down continues to be a wholly original and hilarious put-down comedy with a stellar ensemble cast. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review kim y i don't laugh often. but this, really made me laugh a lot. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review georgan g Great comedic acting! The entire cast was terrific. The more the characters were developed the funnier things got. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Tom F Absolutely hilarious show and looking forward to the 6 episode reboot. Can't believe I never saw it until now. I guess there was just too many funny series on during that time period opposed to the comedy drought we live in now. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/09/21 Full Review Read all reviews Post a review
