Trivia

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".

SO good!!!
23 November 2016 | by erolsabadoshSee all my reviews

7 episodes in and I'm hooked! This show is absolutely HILARIOUS!!! The style of humour is somewhere between Broad City and Louis; it's quite dark and weird at times but also fun and irreverent. The cast is awesome, doing a really good job portraying characters who are deeply flawed and making them entertaining to watch. A lot of the comedy stems from making fun of them and the often ridiculous things they do but it's not mean spirited; the show has a real charm to it that makes it ideal for binge watching. Every episode adds another layer to the mystery and we watch the characters unravel and get into ever-increasingly bizarre situations that all had me laughing out loud and often cringing too. One of my new favourites!
