  • Pretty good episode.. and Tom is just proving over and over that he's the best part of this show.

    Parks and Recreation will never reach the comedic levels of The Office, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock or other elite comedies, but it is definitely entertaining nonetheless. And this episode proves that Tom Haverford is easily the best character on the show.

    The episode revolved around Leslie and Tom attempting to do a stakeout near the pit to see who planted weed at the pit (which has been turned into a community garden by the Parks and Recreation department). Meanwhile, Ann finally goes on a date with Mark and realizes that.. it actually wasn't that bad. These two plots were the most interesting.

    The worst part was the weird side plot with Ron and April. There were a couple of funny moments with Ron's hernia, but they weren't the greatest. It seemed filler compared to the stakeout plot. It was also nice to see Andy come back, even if he did seem to go a bit psychotic (seriously, he was going to have a rock fight with a crazy dude.. but that actually made me laugh)

    I'm liking this season so far.. definitely funnier then last season.
