The workplace comedy.  It’s funny how work place comedies entertain us through something that we’re supposed to be confronting with everyday.  For those who don’t know what the workplace comedy is, it’s like a movie or television show that is primarily set in a single business and follows the antics of its employees, using jokes that are relatable to anyone in a similar situation [queue the entire workforce].  The comedy is written around office norms and situations and the antics that can occur.  While some movies and television can be solid escapism, workplace comedy juggernauts like Clerks, Office Space, The Office, etc. can certainly point out some of the funnier aspects in what many of us consider mundane.

Queue the most recent workplace comedy I’ve been fortunate enough to watch: Starz’s Party Down, starring Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, and Ken Marino.  This show aired in 2009 and was cancelled after 2 seasons.  There have been talks about a movie release, but it doesn’t seem enough gas is on the burner, so I’m writing this article to maybe get 1 or 2 of you involved with watching to increase the cult following.  Set is California, the comedy revolves around a party catering company that primarily consists of failed/working actors using the catering company Party Down as a means of making money before finally making it big.  Self-centered, lazy, horny, ignorant and [often] drugged up, the Pardy Down crew ‘caters’ to a myriad of hilariously great situations that involve brushing with a Russian Mob, a Porn Star Dinner, and an orgy.  Read more as to why I recommend you become a follower of this cult hit [more cult followers = more likely chance of a movie getting made, just look at what Arrested Development accomplished].

Spring TV may be over, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop talking about it.  With most television shows, I often fall in love with some of the leads, which lends it itself to about a thick 30-40% of why I’d watch any given television show,  with story and humor/drama being the other 30% or so each.  So today, I kinda compiled some of my favorite crushes from this past season and some of the reasons why I fell so hard for them.

The criteria of why I chose some of the women include the following: 1) Attractiveness – most people in this industry are fairly attractive.  From this category, I’m looking for unique looking people who behold beauty in their own special way. 2) Personality – Most of the people on this list will make me laugh.  It’s truly the gateway into most men’s heart.  And when you have to choose from a list of all beautiful looking women, character personality is a good way to divide the lines. 3) Plot Driving – Whether they’re actually essential to the story or just a pretty face is kinda important to me.  It makes it so much more intimate when the characters you care for actually mean something to story.  4) Fashion Sense – I’m a self confirmed Metrosexual, so I value the way women look and carry themselves.  Their choice in wardrobe is very important to me.

Each girl will be based on a scale of 1-5 for each category.  However, each girl only has 15 points to be spent on the four categories, so I had to choose carefully.  Read below how I rated all my crushes.
