Speaking of Parks and Recreation...

Oh, who am I kidding? I need no excuse to fangirl about Adam Scott, Paul Rudd, or anything tangentially Party Down-related.  Favorite actors/comedies are pretty circular in that a) I like things they're in because of them and I like them because of the things they're in and 2) most of them can be connected and re-connected in an infinite loop of one or two degrees of separation.

That being said, I have been anxiously awaiting the promised Party Down reunion episode on Children's Hospital, and thanks to friend and TV-nerd Merigan, I now know it's coming up, really soon. Like, at midnight EST soon, on Cartoon Network.

Rudd and Scott have an interview in BlackBook magazine (the people who hosted that Grey Goose party we weren't invited to?), promoting the upcoming Our Idiot Brother. I mean, look at this photo, people:


And because these two movies are connected by Elizabeth Banks, I'm gonna mention it: I watched Zach and Miri Make a Porno recently, and it was surprisingly good. That is, surprising for how poorly it did at the box office. I'm not sure if this is an unpopular opinion or not (i.e., I'm too lazy to look up the Rotten Tomatoes score), but I'm just putting it out there.

Get thee to a television!

UPDATE: Here it is, the Party Down reunion, in all of its 30 second glory

It made my brain hurt a little, but I'm actually glad they didn't try to reconcile Megan Mullally and Ken Marino regularly playing different characters on Children's Hospital. And that Lizzy Caplan played Mullally's daughter once. Mostly I'm just glad to see those costumes again. And so many Jew jokes (Merigan pointed out that the unusual color of the bow ties may be Bar Mitzvah-themed).
