  • Parks and Recreation's Season 5 Premiere: Knope vs. Reality

    Leslie may have won the city council election in the Season 4 finale, but now she must face her biggest challenge yet: dealing with bureaucratic red tape.

  • Episode Summary

    Leslie and Andy travel to Washington, D.C. to visit Ben and April as they work on a congressional campaign. Leslie is intimidated by the national politicos she meets, and feels like her work is unimportant after she is denied a meeting with a senator, however, she gets to meet some of her heroes. Back in Pawnee, Ron throws the annual employee appreciation picnic in Leslie's absence, and it's not quite what people are used to. Ann and Tom fight with each other as they try to hide their breakup from their friends.
