    The title says it all: Party Animals. This program delves into the party politics, and the partying habits of several twenty-somethings within and around Westminster.
    Originally conceived as a comedy about New Labour's spin tactics, this show has been updated to comment on the culture of David Cameron's 'New Conservatives'. The drama gives viewers a glimpse into the world of Westminster and includes Labour and Conservative characters, as well as lobbyists and journalists. The two main characters are brothers Scott and Danny. Their father was a Labour MP and Danny has followed in his footsteps - he is now a political researcher for Jo Porter MP. Danny spends his days working hard and fawning over the office intern, Kirsty. However, his brother Scott, an increasingly dissatisfied lobbyist, spends his days partying just as hard as he works and can get any girl he wants. Which ultimately causes trouble when he finally falls for one girl, a Conservative up-and-coming, Ashika Chandrimani, though journalist Sophie still has her eye on him.

The self-serving shallowness of most people involved in politics is one. The inability of people to communicate is a second, and its special sub-category of: make that double for people who are sexually attracted to one and other, makes it two and a half. A generally winning, sympathetic cast, all of whom screw up royally in one or more ways during the first season more than makes up for occasional creakiness in the writing. While open to criticism for being jejune, the status of all of the main characters at the end of the first season is far from rosy. From an American perspective, it's a nice imagining of life among the young things on the British equivalent of Capitol Hill. Expand
