Party Down has taken it on the chin many times over the years—first getting the dreaded Friday 10 p.m. time slot, then losing Jane Lynch to other, bigger shows, then being canceled (by Starz of all places) after only two seasons. But these are all badges of pride for a cult comedy, really, and the show’s reputation will only continue to grow, thanks to a new distribution deal with Hulu. Beginning this Friday, every episode of the series will be streaming on Hulu Plus, with the first five episodes available for free on Hulu’s website. Those free episodes will only be available for a limited time, though, meaning you’ll have to binge-watch them all while hiding in the bathroom at work.
