Review - Party Down Season 2 Episode 2 Precious Lights Pre-School Auction

Are there really kindergartens out there that can fast track kids in the Ivy League? According to "Precious Lights Pre-School Auction," there are. Parents are willing to go to any length, including shelling out thousands of dollars.

It's funny to see Ron as the new underling, undermining the boss, Henry, at every turn, switching their roles last season. The difference is that Ron is making an intentional effort, and it makes him seem more like a buffoon. He still has the work spirit in him, but there's not much he can do other than get back at Henry. Pretending to have sex with Lydia like Henry did with Casey has the funny effect of getting Henry in hot water and letting his girlfriend run off with his sports car. There's really no break for him.

At the end of the episode, Henry and Casey are back to that rapport that made their relationship so great last season. If they can't be together, at least Casey won't be antagonizing Henry for the remainder of the season. It looks like Casey will touch stardom for a while with his casting in the Judd Apatow movie. It'll be interesting to see how that pans out and if it affects her relationships with her coworkers.

Score: 9.2/10
