Have you seen a celebration scene in a movie and wondered what it was like for the catering team at the event? No? Not surprising as catering and hilarity aren't usually associated.
Revolving door of tremendous one-and-done characters keeps the show fresh, because it's always about the party. Even each team member provides a different kind of humour. Don brings the cringe, Henry has his deadpan sarcasm, Kyle and Roman have their jock vs. geek dynamic, etc. They're all struggling actors / comedians / writers hoping their `real' careers take off
Jane Lynch mysteriously disappears for the last 2 episodes and gets replaced by Jennifer Coolidge, which is like trading in a Bentley for a pair of tramp's shoes. Even she can't drag this show down.
