  • Emerging as one of the comedies to watch

    I'm still new to this show, but of the 3 episodes I've seen so far, I've been enjoying Parks and Recreation more than many of the other comedies on TV, and the show seems much funnier that what we got last season.

    Leslie get's to judge a beauty pageant this week, which is an easy plot device, sure, but I still liked it. I like Leslie here, who continues to impress me with how different she is from a similar character- Michael Scott from The Office. Her pro-feminist views give her a layer of intelligence and integrity that make her a winning lead. But most of the laughs will come from Tom who gets himself to be a judge too, only to oogle the eye candy. "36A? How'd you get in here?" Lol!

    Also very amusing was Andy crashing in on Ann and Mark's dinner date. Mark seems very dull to me. I loved his musings back in the pit afterward. This character could be a major standout
