Review - Party Down Season 2 Episode 9 Cole Landry's Draft Day Party

Before writing this review, I wanted to watch the season finale which was on the Starz website some time last week. Unfortunately, it's not there anymore, so I have no idea what will happen. The writers surely provided a way out for the departing actors or even the ending of the series.

"Cole Landry's Draft Day Party" started moving in that direction with Casey going to Apatow's premiere without Henry--possibly her big break into stardom, leaving behind everyone else. Kyle departs before the party is over for a band gig, so that could be his break. Party Down ending on success might be a little off-tone since the show is based on self-deprecation and people getting screwed; however, the writers can put a spin on their success, if there is any and in the end, there will always be the losers catering.

Aside from the annoying fact that players who expect to be drafted in the top 5 go to the actual draft, "Cole Landry's Draft Day Party" was an awesome episode. Roman, again, was schooled by reality. A football player knows more about science fiction than him, and sadly knows English rules as well. So how is Roman better? Well, at least he didn't have to hold Ron's ejaculate. Kyle completely punks Ron to the point where he thinks he was "ball cancer," a fact that is emphasized over and over on national television. Cole doesn't get drafted and is confused until we learn that he's gay. Eventually he is drafted and already has endorsements lined up.

Score: 9.4/10
