I have to throw out a recommendation for the STARZ series Party Down. Funniest show I've seen since Arrested Development. Just got cancelled after its 2nd season, but those 2 seasons are worth a look. If anyone has Netflix, the entirety can be watched instantly from Netflix's site. You won't be sorry.

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble as it is a great show BUT Starz just announced that they are not renewing the series for another season along with Gravity. Really goes to show you what the television execs know even for the pay-for channels.

EDIT: Just realized the cancellation was mentioned in the original post. This is what a July 4th weekend of brain/body damage will do to you.

I'm pretty sure they were interested in bringing it back, but the actors who play Henry and Kyle have signed on for other shows. Now if only Martin Starr would get launched onto network TV, I'd consider the show a success.

I think I've seen most of them find new roles on TV... Ken Marino and Megan Mullally are ready to go on Childrens Hospital (Adult Swim). Show looks great. Adam Scott has taken a full-time role on Parks & Rec I believe, another outstandin comedy. Not sure about "kyle" but my guess is that he will go on to films.

I'm just trying to find myself some more Lizzy Caplan.
