Rob Thomas’ ‘Party Down’ Available on Netflix Instant

April 13, 2009

          A while back I linked to a story about Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas, who was creating a new show for Starz.  Well the show, Party Down, has been out for weeks now, and although I don’t get the Starz channel, I was able to catch the first four episodes via Netfix Instant.  Click on the link below to add it to your instant queue.  It’s a half-hour comedy about a group of aspiring/ failed-actors/comedians/entrepeneurs.  The show is pretty much a Veronica Mars reunion,  The entire main cast (except for Lizzy Caplan) was on Veronica Mars: Ryan Hansen (Dick Casablancas), Adam Scott (Veronica’s scandalous teacher who got fired for sleeping with a student), Jane Lynch (she played the evil teacher who didn’t want Veronica to recount the votes for the student election), and Ken Marino (the slimy P.I. Vinny Van Lowe).   Guest stars have included Jason Dohring (Logan), Enrico Colantoni (Sheriff Mars), Cliff (I don’t know the actor’s name, but I loved that guy!), Alona Tal (Meg!), and Martin Yu (Mr. Wu) so far.  No Kristen Bell yet, but I think she will be on a future episode.  Anyways, I’m not in love with the show yet, but it’s fun and worth checking out.  Let me know what you think.
