What the what? I want to see some Jane Lynch on Dr. Who.
Party Down should win the Arrested Development prize for “Amazing Comedy That Probably Won’t Get the Recognition It Deserves Until It’s Cancelled.”
Season 2 premieres Friday on Starz. Yes, Starz. They also post new episodes on Netflix Instant Watch. I simply can’t recommend it enough, it’s got the exact right amounts of everything I like. It’s one of the few TV shows (and even fewer comedies) I’ve watched twice.
I am currently watching the pilot. I can’t believe I never knew about this show. Thanks to video on demand, I will be caught up in no time. And after one episode, I know Jeff Rubin is correct. It has nothing to do with him actually being funny, even though he kind of is. Just kind of.
The first season of Party Down was hilarious, I loved it. I was so relieved when I heard there would be a second season. And yes, Gleeks, that’s Jane Lynch. And yes, that is Dick Casablancas. And yes, I did spend a good part of my time watching this series pretending it was an odd, yet satisfying, season of Veronica Mars.
Last night before I went to bed someone that I follow on tumblr posted a list of reasons why they will never watch an episode of Glee. I waited a minute because they have a pretty big following- This is the first thing I saw.
Julia Child: Last week, I dreamed that I made cassoulet for Dad, and he hated it, of course. He doesn’t understand any of this.
Dorothy McWilliams: I almost feel sorry for him. He wanted so much for us to stay in Pasadena, marry Republicans, and breed like rabbits.
Julia Child:Why didn’t we?
Dorothy McWilliams: Too tall.
Let’s face it, it’s true. From the beginning, you just don’t fit in. Literally. So then, you don’t.
Julia Child: I know, it’s true.
jennhoney: What? No, I didn’t guffaw with laughter during this scene. What could I possibly identify with in this scene? Well, I do like rabbits. Yes, I can get that off the top shelf for you. No, I do not play basketball.
