Default Parks and Recreation



A synopsis from Wikipedia:

"The series follows the ambitions of perennially upbeat mid-level bureaucrat Leslie Knope, on her quest to better the town of Pawnee, Indiana. As deputy director of the city's Parks and Recreation Department, her sense of enthusiasm is rarely shared by her unmotivated colleagues, who include the wisecracking Tom, placid city planner Mark Brendanawicz, deadpan department head Ron Swanson, and his droll assistant April Ludgate. Leslie's newly found best friend is a local nurse Ann Perkins, whom she meets when Ann's immature boyfriend Andy Dwyer tumbles into a large pit near their house. Leslie takes on the quest to turn the pit into a park, which becomes her ultimate personal project. However, she finds herself repeatedly frustrated by bureaucrats and townspeople who stand in her way. While the pit-park storyline occupied the show's first season, the pit was filled in during second season, and the plot gradually began to explore Leslie's other projects and personal issues, including a fledgling romance. The second season also focuses on the personal lives of all of the Parks Department employees, as well as Ann's new romance with Mark and April's affections for Ann's ex-boyfriend, Andy."

When the show first premiered last spring, it mostly received negative reviews. However, much like the American version of The Office, this show has steadily improved in its second season. In my own humble opinion, it's the best prime time comedy on network tv right now.



Does anyone else here watch the show?

You know it man , definitely one of my favorite shows now, and has replaced The Office as my favorite sitcom. Ron Swanson's my favorite character. And I agree with Questlove(drummer for The Roots), this show's like the Wu Tang Clan of comedies. Granted, you could say the same about The Office, but I like Parks' ensemble cast more at this point.



Saw the picnic episode last night,

Leslie - '....I made you some bacon to snack on.'

Ron - 'I ate it already....I smelled it before I got out of my car. And now it's gone and I hate everything.

Felt bad for April though, she looked so hurt/disappointed when Andy left her at the bar.

Funny that you should mention that...

I have a feeling their will they/won't they relationship will be left on a cliffhanger during the season finale. I also feel like all that build up will be wasted if Andy just gets back with Anne(which could be a possibility).

That's where I got it from, evidently Questlove wrote an essay analyzing the similarities between the Parks cast and Wu Tang.

Amy - '...I've heard the Wu Tang Clan ain't nothing to fuck with.'

RZA - 'That's right...bring the motherfuckin' ruckus baby.'

Yea, genuinely don't know which way it's going. Ann seems pretty unenthusiastic about Mark, and she's thinking about Andy a lot more.

I'm glad Ann finally realized what a boring couple she and Mark are. The audience has known that for quite a while.

It's too bad the show's on a month-long hiatus right now, just when things were getting really interesting.

EDIT: I just found a pretty good bio of April on the Parks and Recreation website.

http://www.pawneeindiana.com/parks-a...talog/#catalog

"April Ludgate was born in Björk’s house in Iceland and grew up on Easter Island, where her parents were giant stone heads. She has the ability to fire beams of tacos out of her hands and she can turn her legs into tigers. On Sundays, April enjoys reading Family Circus and traveling through time. Her favorite color is greenish-transparent and her favorite movie is the one you just watched. April is in charge of uploading the staff bios to the website, and no one has checked over her work."

Yea, even when Mark does have a funny line, it's usually eclipsed by someone else. Like when Ron taught everyone self defense,

Andy - '...Should I put Mark in a headlock to show how to escape from a pervert?'

Mark - 'In the scenario you laid out, you're the pervert. You understand that, right?'

Andy - 'Tssst...you wish.'

I think she's adorable.

After Jerry got 'mugged,'

Jerry - '...I was walking Lord Sheldon...'

April - 'Eww, is that some kind of weird sex act?'

Jerry - 'Lord Sheldon is my dog, my wife named him.'

April - 'Eww.'

Mark's sort of the straight man of the group, which doesn't work as well now that they've toned down the wackiness of characters like Leslie.

It's a fact that anything involving tigers is hilarious.

Yeah, this show has some great lines.

I wouldn't mind if the show had more merchandise available (I saw a couple Pawnee shirts and a thermos available online).

I kind of want a MouseRat cd.

This show is great. Love the cast. Think the fairway frank episode might be one of my favorites.

I remember reading a review for that episode that described Tom running away from the possum as being "pure Simpsons".

Pretty much, and it's not like Jim in The Office where he can constantly play off of the other characters' weirdness.

I gotta check that stuff out, I'd get a Pawnee t shirt.

I like MouseRat, I kinda like Ann's idea more though, Baby In A Straightjacket.
