112. Parks and Recreation

I’ve recently gotten into the show Parks and Recreation, on NBC. The premise is that Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, is deputy chief of the Parks and Recreation Department in Pawnee, Indiana. She considers herself a strong woman, in the ranks of Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton. She is a mover and a shaker, the true powerhouse of Pawnee’s Parks Department.

I watched the first two seasons on Netflix two months ago. Today I am catching up on season three. The last episode I saw, Ron Swanson (Leslie’s boss) got back together with his ex-wife, crazy crazy Tammy Swanson.

The cast is full of fantastic actors and characters. April Ludgate, played by Aubrey Plaza, is a non-plussed 19 year old who works in the office as an assistant. Aziz Ansari plays Tom Haverford, a Justin Timberlake wannabe who is constantly playing tricks on Leslie. Rashida Jones, of “The Office” fame (Karen), plays Ann Perkins, Leslie’s best friend and everyone’s love interest.

I highly recommend this show. Tune in Thursdays at 9:30 on NBC, or watch it online.

    I followed this blog for quite a while. Still bookmarked. Just want to say I’m bummed to see it isn’t being updated anymore.
