Maybe it’s because I’m still smarting from the fact that the Caprica pilot (the unrated version being released on DVD, anyway) doesn’t shy away from showing multiple topless women writhing and kissing, but Eric Stoltz keeps his wifebeater undershirt on during most of a sexual encounter. Or maybe I’m just a wuss. But this week’s Party Down, set at an “adult film awards” party, is a bridge too far for me, thanks. I quit at about the point a fringe market that may or may not actually be popular in another country was described in excruciating detail. I can’t even go with our typical food-related tag line for this post, because those were all filthy-but-not funny, too. Smoke ’em if you got ’em and that’s your thing, I guess, but I’m passing, thanks. Better luck next week, I hope.
For the record, this week’s Veronica Mars alum was Jeffrey Vincent Parise, who played Dylan Gorman in “Hot Dogs”. From beating up Trina Echolls to hawking coke at the Sin Say Shun awards–that’s quite a career arc.
