    You forgot that Lizzy Caplan was also in True Blood.

    I’m not sure I would lump Party Down in with Lizzy Caplan’s other one season wonders. That at least has a second season under it’s belt, even if each season is only 10 episodes long.

    But if anybody deserves a hit series at this point it’s her. Unfortunately the synopsis of this new show doesn’t sound too intriguing.
