5 Reasons Why Party Down Season 2 Should Be Today's Impulse Purchase
As you wait idly for Lone Star: The Complete Series to wind up on Amazon -- those unaired episodes have to go somewhere -- why not invest your hard-earned paycheck in another canceled-before-it's-time gem: Party Down. Ahead, five reasons why you should probably add season two of the series to your TV-on-DVD collection immediately.
1. This Is Your Last Chance to Show Starz that Party Down Has (Lots of) Fans: Will the network suddenly order a third season of Party Down after pulling the plug on it this summer? Probably not but that does not mean that you and Party Down nation shouldn't try. Think of it as a middle finger to the establishment. And if Starz still doesn't reverse its decision (they won't)...
2. This DVD Is Your Only Evidence That Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Ryan Hansen and Megan Mullally Ever Collaborated: Sure, part of the gang could reunite to shoot the occasional Funny or Die video, collaborate on the odd feature film, or guest star on each others' future TV project. But to get the entire gang together again would take a rare aligning of the stars' schedules or an Oprah-ordered summons to Chicago.
3. Orgies, Homosexuality, NFL Drafts, Bathroom Humor, Alcoholism, Recreational Sports, Child Actors, Accidental Anti-Semitism, Mobsters, Hallucinogens and Groupies: These are just some of the topics explored in the ten episodes found on this DVD.
4. The Best Patrick Duffy Cameo of All-Time: Kristen Bell, Joey Lauren Adams, J.K. Simmons, Thomas Lennon, Rob Huebel, Tamala Jones, Brad William Henke, Matt Walsh, Alex Rocco, Michael Hitchcock, Steven Weber, Jennifer Coolidge, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Steve Guttenberg, Rachel Harris and Paul Scheer all appear during season two of Party Down, but nothing can top the appearance of Patrick Duffy in the finale. Yes, it's even better than his appearance in Walk Hard.
5. If Enough People Buy the DVD, Maybe Kristen Bell Will Threaten to Fund the Feature Film: The Veronica Mars star is already campaigning hard for the big screen adaptation of Rob Thomas' other television series, so why shouldn't the optimistic starlet spearhead a campaign for the Starz series on which she guest-starred both seasons? Stranger things have happened.
