Public Service Announcement: Watch Party Down

Thank goodness for Netflix. I don't have any pay-cable channels like HBO, so I have to wait for all the awesome shows like Dexter to come out on DVD.

Party Down is on Starz, and I've been anxiously waiting for the DVD release so that I could check it out. Boy, am I glad I did. So far I've only watched half of the first season, but each episode cracks me up. Where else could I hear Jane Lynch describe old man's genitalia as "two eggs in a tube sock" with such disdain?

It's about a catering & party staffing service, so each episode is centered around a new party. That means new scenarios and characters for the cast to interact with. And the cast is awesome: Jane Lynch, Martin Starr, Ken Marino, etc. I'll warn you that some of the episodes are more adult themed, like the one where they work at the porn version of the Academy Awards.

Here's the best part of all though...the show is written and created by Paul Rudd. PAUL RUDD! We all know that Paul Rudd is kind of awesome.
