    Parks and Recreation "Sex Education" Review: Pawnee Is for Perd-verts

    Parks and Recreation killed it this week. All three storylines were smart, funny, and topical. The satire sang, and I was listening.

  • Episode Summary

    The sex education classes for seniors run afoul of Pawnee's morality watchdogs when they attempt to teach more than simple abstinence.

      I tried to give Parks and Recreation a chance this season, but the comedy just is not there. Too many stories that go nowhere and jokes that just fall flat. Aziz Ansari actually made me laugh with a few lines, but that was another dumb plot for his annoying character.



      The sex education issue was really bothersome too. Didn't find that funny, didn't find it intriguing either.

      • Tom: 9:20. Just hit a fire hydrant, but i survived. #unbreakable.#WhatsMrGlass uptothesedays? #Whynosequel?


        This is a refernce to the 2000 M. Night Shyamalan film Unbreakable. Samuel L Jackon plays the villian Elijah Price, also known as Mr. Glass, who suffers from a disorder which causes his bones to be extremely fragile.  This character searches for a man who is the exact opposite of his affliction, or is "unbreakable," and discovers Bruce Willis' character David Dunn who is convinced by Mr. Glass that he is a superhero.


        This also references a line from a 2004 Kanye West song Through the Wire in which Kanye discusses surviving a major car accident.  The line says, "Unbreakable, what you though they'd call me Mr. Glass?" Tom had just been in a minor car accident and Kanye is one of his favorite artists.
