  • MOVE THAT SCOOBER!

    Parks and Recreation "Soda Tax" Review: Super-Sized Silly

    "Soda Tax" hilariously showed how a comedy about small-town government can hold a mirror to larger political and social issues facing our country.

  • Episode Summary

    As her first official act as a city councilwoman, Leslie proposes a tax on soda to combat Pawnee's rampant obesity, but the restaurants counter by threatening to lay people off if the tax passes and Leslie is torn about how to vote until Ron reminds her of her true nature. Chris and Tom help Andy train for the physical entrance exam into the police academy. Ben and April are still working in Washington D.C., where Ben struggles to gain the respect of the interns on the campaign.
