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".

A breath of fresh air
23 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

If you go into this for a cookie-cutter Bones, SVU, CSI type show or constant one-liners you will be disappointed. The characters aren't meant to be likable, but serve to rustle up emotions like annoyance and frustration. The brilliance of this show is its commentary on what it means to search for meaning, fulfillment, and actualization in a post-modernist society. The jokes are subtle and character based. There is a heady dose of nihilism, which is done in a style unlike any other show I've seen, and it's deeply existentialist. This show serves as a mirror into our own lives. That's the kind of mindset it should be viewed in--don't expect to like the characters or a mystery.
