This was my first time watching Parks since the pilot. I decided to give the show another chance, and while they do seem to have solid direction for all of these characters, I just can't get behind them. Amy Poehler is just not fit for a lead role, she's just not funny enough, and Retta may be the most annoying person on NBC.
It was not that bad, but I think it's a matter of whether you love this show or you hate it, and I'm starting to fall into the hate it group. These actors just don't mesh well like an ensemble should. Did like the John McCain cameo.
