NBC's Parks and Rec, which finishes its second season tonight, has become one of the best things on all of TV, and there are a lot of factors that contributed before Sam Seaborn and Henry Pollard showed up.
Wednesday's Hawaii-centric episode put the show's hard work on full display; it was one of the best episodes of the season, and Phil and the kids stole the show.
Saturday's episode enjoyed tremendous ratings and was one of the funniest in years, but was Betty telling the same joke over and over?
She may be known for playing the sometimes-brutal, stubborn moms on Arrested Development and Archer, but Jessica Walter can't be mean to save her life.

Wednesday's stupendous episode was one of the more sitcom-y episodes, and demonstrated the kind of sitcom 2.0 that Modern Family has become.
We snagged a few minutes with actor Daniel Dae Kim to discuss his character's growth and his odd metaphor for his fellow islanders.
Whatever happened to that old adage, "Leave 'em laughing"?
Yep, even better than recent The Simpsons.
Seven episodes isn't really enough time to evaluate a budding sketch show,

ALL GROWN UP
From Wild and Crazy to Miami Medical, Omar Gooding has still got what it takes.
THE BIG SELL
Invasive TV product placement has been everywhere recently, from Chuck to Bones to Lost.
AMC's Breaking Bad is one of television's best dramas. But behind the dark drama are loads of laughs... should we feel bad for chuckling?
