king in on his grandparents making love: "It was like watching a mummy battle."

The show boasts cameos for the likes of Kristen Bell, Ken Jeong, Rob Corddry and Ed Begley Jr. (none playing themselves, it should be noted), but the chemistry of the Party Down crew is what causes the show to explode with laughs. If not incompetent, they are verging on it, turning every affair they work into a disaster. The series isn't played as silly slapstick, but rather smart, often dark comedy "? no surprise given that Paul Rudd is co-creator (but, as of yet, not a guest).

While its liberal use of the F-word would keep it from achieving mainstream success, "Party Down" is clearly one of TV's best comedies. "?Rod Lott
