This post is going to be a short one.
I’d just like to express my profound love for Parks and Recreation.
It’s a TV show that ran for seven years (2009-2015). Leslie Knope, played by the fantastic Amy Poehler, is a protagonist who is the hard-working, most earnest and sincere government official in the town of Pawnee, Indiana. Despite her best efforts, the town itself always finds itself to bring her down a notch. Despite it all, her idealism and tenacity allow her to get back up again and help Pawnee with everything she’s got.
I love the show because of its oddball humor. It runs in the same mockumentary style as The Office, both shows that are also produced by the same guy. I like both shows, but P&R has been a much more consistent show that plays off the talents of its ensemble cast.
If there’s a video about P&R that I’d show to a non-watcher, it’s this sex-related zinger below that captures the spirit and essence of the show.
I’ll probably talk more about the show once I’ve finished it, but this is all for now.
Hope you have a great Sunday ahead of ya!
