  • Not the best episode ever.

    7.0
    As much as the episode was funny, I couldn't help but feel it was a silly episode to come back with. The plot is pretty throw away, as opposed to episodes like "The Trial of Leslie Knope", which pushed the story arc forward. This episode had some great moments, I particularly enjoyed the April and Andy "Champion" story, but even that will more than likely become a throwaway gag.



    On the downside, I hated the Chris/Ben depression storyline, it just seemed like they needed something for those characters to do, but I feel the airtime used for that story could have been used for a more deserving character, like Ron or Tom, both of whom's appearances seemed too brief to count.



    I'm glad Parks and Rec is back, but I hope we get some better episodes. This one was lacking too much Ron and Tom.moreless
