Storyline

Like most twenty-somethings, Scott, Danny, Ashika and Kirsty spend much of their day worrying about love, sex, friendship and paying the rent. Unlike most twenty-somethings, the rest of the time they're worrying about running the country. Party Animals takes a look at Westminster from the ground up - the young researchers and advisers shouldering huge responsibility in a frantic, high-stakes world. It's no wonder their personal lives are so messy. Starring Doctor Who actor Matt Smith.

"This Life" in politics
2 December 2008 | by ennorSee all my reviews

This series is made for the 20 & 30 somethings out there who like their stories to be laced with a little sex, deception, politics (which often = sex + deception), nice bodies, fresh faces, bars, booze, and some dabbling in illicit substances. Now, my 20, 30-something days are far behind me, but I love this show, even only having seen the first episode.

Like "This Life" of 15 or so years ago did for the law profession, 'Party Animals' gets inside the lives of a handful of (mostly quite young) researchers and would-be lobbyists attached to Westminster in London. The behind-the-scenes goings on seem hard to believe, but believe it you must. This is just a tiny window into the workings of the British political system, like hiding backstage to see what goes on behind the scenes. So much responsibility seems to be in the hands of the very young, most of whom have to unwind with alcohol, drugs and sex, and of course this frequently adds further complication to already complicated lives.

The cast are attractive, and all more than competent in their respective roles. The script is quick and sharp, and altogether this series is worth a look.
