    I am a big hater of bangs on women. Almost no women can pull it off, even very attractive ones. That being said I have a bit of a crush on Lizzy Caplan even with the bad hair.

    Jane Lynch was good on there... and Megan's character might be too over the top.

    Lizzy's hair was better in True Blood

    I agree that Jane Lynch was great, and Megan Mullaly needs to be replaced. She's just not entertaining here.

    I think Megan M w/b much better if they gave her a better character. Her character is just plain stoopid and unnecessary. I really like MM and would LOVE to see her have a stronger character. Although actors don't want typecasting, I think a character kind of like Karen Walker would be fun in this...at least something with a lot of moxie and a personality!

    Jane Lynch was really good though. Unfortunately I only got to see half a dozen eps of S1, but THAT was a character!

    I agree with this. I don't dislike Megan Mullaly as an actor. She can be funny. But the Lydia character is completely useless and unfunny. Also, they need to get MM's real life husband, Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson from Parks & Recreation) on the show.

    By the way I will say the Steve Guttenberg episode was awesome. Stevie G was very awesome.

    I finally got around to watching Season 1 about a week ago or so, and it was so good that I just started right in on Season 2 and finished off the S2 finale yesterday. A really good show.

    I'd recommend this one. I saw the great reviews for S2 at metacritic, but I thought both seasons were really, really good. Jane Lynch was good.

    Anyone hear about a Season 3, or if it's been renewed?

    With Adam Scott and Ryan Hansen both leaving for other shows and an average demo rating of 0.1, it isn't likely.

    It's official. Both Party Down & Gravity have been canceled (or not renewed). I never got into Gravity, but it is sad to see Party Down go.

    I saw the news at The Futon Critic.

    That sucks.

    I did see Lizzy Caplan on Jimmy Kimmel though, and she said the public awareness numbers for Party Down went down. She joked that means people who know of the show completely forgot it existed.

    It is too bad, I really enjoyed it.

    I can't blame Stars, they did quite a bit to try and promote it from having it on Netflix Streaming, to pusing it on DirecTV 101 channel, and releasing episodes early on Demand etc, plus running ads for it.

    So it is not like they did not try to get it going.

    Argh! I just found out about this show and tore through the two seasons on Netflix. I even contemplated a Stars subscription to catch season 3.
