|I actually love this show. Gonna go out on a limb, and say it's my favorite current on-air tv show. I used to be slightly more obsessed with The Office, but really...everyone realizes The Office lost it's spark long ago. Don't get me wrong; I still watch the show regularly and delight in Dwight's craziness. But the humor is just a bit more fresh in Parks and Rec. If people "hate" the show, it's because they haven't given it a chance. As someone who publically scorned The OC in it's height of tv-show stardomn, without ever watching a single episode, I understand the view that "you don't have to bite the apple to know it's sweet" and vice versa. But with comedy so closely related to the stylings of SNL and The Office, how could people seriously hate Parks and Rec? My verdict - they just haven't approached the show with an open mind.|
Amen! Poehler wasn't nominated for an Emmy for nothing.
