“He was one of those people who stared at you with a meaningful smile on their face, as if he was somehow intellectually and spiritually superior, when the fact was he was simply socially inept.”
—Kate Atkinson, Life After Life
It was like a summertime romance: I heard rumors about great actors playing great characters, found it streaming on netflix, and it caught my eye. So I watched a little more and next thing I knew? I couldn’t stop thinking about them.
I laughed, I loved, I cried, (but only a little, and it was from the laughing) and just like that…after two seasons with Rob, Henry, Casey, and Roland, it was over. I knew it couldn’t last forever - that energy, writing, quirkiness, and humor - and I’m sure that 2 seasons of greatness are better than the inevitable seasons of saddening decline.
To those who haven’t watched Party Down: Please, queue up the netflix.
