Did You Know?


Michael Showalter taught screenwriting at New York University film school for six years. During his time there, two students (Sarah-Violet Bloss and Charles Rogers) impressed Showalter and wanted to work more with them, so he brought them on to the staff of his Netflix show, "Wet Hot American Summer" and began developing "Search Party".

Fun, different, and worth a chance!
22 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

I just finished binging all 10 episodes on demand and I really enjoyed it. I think this is a show that is best experienced consecutively! The writers did write this show with the end in mind! Bravo! This show is hard to love at first because the satirical characters are hard to enjoy. This story soon becomes an exciting vehicle for character development. As the season continues, the characters and plot become really exciting. The season ender will leave you wanting more! The entire cast was great but Alia Shawkat is phenomenal! I could watch her for hours! .C. Framke from Vox sums up the show perfectly in her review when she says "While much of the show's first season feel needlessly twisty and jerky, the way the mystery eventually comes together while allowing for sharp observations about the show's characters speaks to Search Party being much more incisive — and worthy of a 10-hour marathon commitment — than it might appear at first glance"
