  • Something for (almost) everyone

    9.0
    It's just lovable. Funny and smart and I'm very happy that shows like this exist.

    It might have overstayed its welcome a little bit though.

    As a mega fan of The Office "Parks" was a huge disappointment. The only reason I even gave it 3 stars is because Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) is the best character I've seen since Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) and Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) was another strong character. The show just became stagnant and lacked depth as it went on. The show became politically cliche. The citizens are all idiots and the "do-gooder" councilwoman played by Amy Poehler cares about people so much that she knows whats best for the sheeple. She lives in a town of obese people, who love big gulps the size of popcorn buckets with greasy burgers and see life through there own idiotic self satisfying lenses. In one episode Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) goes to a pawn shop and tells the cashier he needs his help with something. The cashier said he had just what he's looking for and pulled out a bucket of guns to sell him. It was nauseatingly obvious the message they were pushing which I can stomach if the show is funny but it only had funny moments. It was not a show where I was excited for the next episode to air and it the story line was boring to follow. Good news is "Archer" will be back in Jan of 15'.moreless

    Just so good. Wtf.
  • Wow, unbeleivable how they ruined this show.

    1.0
    I have never seen anything like what the writers have done with this show. It went from suck, to good, to really good, to so so, to sucks butt.



    Leslie's political views and general life dogma couldn't possibly be any more ridiculous at this point. If in the next episode she was somehow lost at sea, the show would actually improve probably.
  • Office Spinoff?

    7.0
    This show does a lot of things right but can't climb in the ratings too high on my scale because I feel like I'm watching The Office in a new setting. Leslie Knope is Michael Scott 2.0.



    Its not really a bad thing. The Office was great. But Parks and Rec seems to be a little ways off from creating its own identity.



    Of all the sitcoms to hook your boat to, The Office isn't a bad one though.moreless
