Party Animals is the 2007 TV drama about young politicians, starring Matt Smith as Danny, a brilliant minister’s researcher who makes a massive mistake in the opening of the show. We also follow other characters from all sides of the political spectrum, including Danny’s brother Scott (Andrew Buchan), Scott’s new friend Ashika (Shelley Conn) who had been sleeping with her boss, and Danny’s incompetent competition Kirsty (Andrea Riseborough). Although the ending of episode 1 was quite moving, I had a little trouble keeping track of the characters–who is friends or roommates or brothers with whom–and where they were in government. The show’s not bad, but I’m not really into straight dramas, so I probably will not be watching more episodes.
Teaser posts are reviews based on just the first episode.
