    Parks and Recreation "How a Bill Becomes a Law" Review: A Little Help from Leslie's Frizz-ends...

    As Leslie’s mine-laden journey into the murky inner workings of Pawnee politics continued, we saw her idealism become frazzled, even a bit frizzy, but she did what she had to do to get the job done.

  • Episode Summary

    April (Aubrey Plaza) and Ben (Adam Scott) wind up unexpectedly stranded in a parking lot, trying to figure out a way to return to Pawnee. Meanwhile, Leslie (Amy Poehler) focuses all her energy on passing a bill, but she soon realizes that it might require some tough decisions on her part.moreless

      Not a bad little ep. Leslie can still be Leslie no matter where she works. Seeing Ben & April interact is fun. Lucy Lawless & Ron Swanson? I like it! But, no Rashida Jones? If there's ever anyone who's been under utilized, it's her.

      Not sure if I want a love interest for Ron, but this was still a fun episode, and that character had a lot of good lines in it. There was nothing too memorable here, but the three main storylines seemed to move at a good pace, and it was light-hearted enough to make me smile a few times. Not laugh out loud comedy, but still good.
