It was okay. It was good. I'm not saying I didn't like it. But it's like one of those one-season Comedy Central shows that's good and then doesn't get renewed. I don't see how Parks & Recreation can go five seasons. It's a stupid concept, beyond the idea of being about very low-level government workers. That works. That's fine. But it's called Parks & Recreation. If The Office starts being about a different office, it's still The Office. But Parks & Recreation always has to be about parks... and recreation. Who wants to keep watching that?

And I mean I LOVE the good one-season Comedy Central shows. Those are some of my favorite shows. I loved Halfway Home and American Body Shop and Stella. Naked Trucker was okay. And Lovespring International, though that's not a CC show. This feels like one of those shows. And I don't think it's going to have a turn around like 30 Rock. That always had potential.

So I don't get it. This isn't formulaic comedy, but it's not "wow, great concept" either. And it's not full of comedy stars. It's like, okay... anything can be funny, but why make a show like this? Spur-of-the-moment whim? Fetishistic gamble? How much thought went into this? Why does it exist? The Office works because it's got good writers on a concept that's proven. If I'm not mistaken, the good writers of The Office still write for The Office, and this is from the producers of a show that's someone else's concept, except now they're trying to create something themselves. It's like a solo album you listen to and think, "Electric banjo... huh... that's different."

My point is, hurry up and BRING BACK THE MUPPET SHOW.

I really liked it too.  It only had a few really funny moments but I feel the same way about the first few episodes of The Office.  I look forward to watching this show develop.

And yes, Amy Poehler is adorable.  I hope Will Arnett has some guest appearances, too.

Caught up with S3.  "Eagleton" is the standout for me, if only for the Ron's birthday stuff. I was crying at his face when Ann listed the things Leslie did for her birthday.

Second best was the Snake Juice one. Hilarious.

I'm -so- glad they got rid of the nerdy "straight guy."  He was a lead weight.

I love the hell out of this show. Both of those are fantastic episodes.

Parker Posey was perfect for that guest role. The Eagleton jail was classic.

I couldn't agree with you more about Mark. The Ben character proves you can play a straight man and still be an interesting character with personality.

"Snake Juice" is probably my favorite from S3; laugh riot X1000! I love when they're rehearsing their parts as shills for the product. Ron's official product recommendations! Jean-Ralphio always going one line too far with his rhymes. I seriously laugh my ass off watching this episode.

"Cover charge? $5000!!!"

"Pre-broth...is an AMAZING STAGE!" Rob Lowe is in top form in this ep.

"What the hell is in Snake Juice? Demerol?!?"

Another of my favorite eps from the season is "Road Trip". Obviously, I was rooting for Leslie and Ben to get together, and their awkward flirting scenes were great, but the subplot of Tom's attempt at a game show and Ron's mentoring of the little kid really put it over the top for me.

"Damn! This game's got juice!!!"

I'm so glad this show got dicked in favor of that undeniable comedy classic...Outsourced. Clean up your mess, NBC.

I thought the premiere was pretty average, which is still good, just not great. Seems as if they may have been focusing a little too much on establishing stories rather than making a great episode. Ron fleeing to the woods was really funny , and Ann's phone blowing up with dick pics was classic.

The campaign should provide for some high hilarity.

What a performance! This guy had better win an Emmy at some point or somethin' just ain't right. Leslie telling him they were going to lunch was classic, and then they pull back to reveal Tammy 1 is at the table with them!

I also thought Ben reacting to all the stuff in the Entertainment 720 offices was damn funny.

I've got seasons 1-3 on DVD but don't really want them any more because I find the show lacks rewatchability value.  Also I'm growing to detest Ron Swanson.  Anybody wanna buy them for 50 bucks?
Title: Re: Parks and Recreation
Post by: D.B. Barnes on November 22, 2011, 01:54:07 PM
Man, I've watched them probably three or four times by now. And I think Ron Swanson has only gotten better with time. I've contributed nothing to the conversation, have I?  :-[
Title: Re: Parks and Recreation
Post by: Thrifty on November 22, 2011, 01:56:10 PM
Having already seen them once and with the first 3 seasons available on NF streaming, I'll pass.  Trying to keep my actual DVD library to a minimum these days in favor of BDs that I'll rewatch.

That sounds odd coming from you.  Aren't you usually an advocate of hard, physical copies of movies and TV shows over streaming, because you get to keep it forever instead of being beholden to the whims of the companies that provide the content?

Anyway, if I don't get any takers here I'll probably just toss them up on Ebay.  I have a rather nice collection of DVDs that I'm proud of, but one of the problems is that if I have a show in there, I can't NOT buy every season released.  It's sort of a personality quirk of mine.  A few years ago, I had seasons 1-6 of Family Guy, but as that show began to get worse and worse, I decided that I would be forever beholden to buy DVDs I didn't want unless I got rid of them.  So I tossed the ones I had on Ebay.

I don't have the same enmity toward Parks and Recreation.  I still like the show.  It's just that I don't really want to OWN it any more.  One viewing is really enough for me I think.  Also I'm running low on shelf space.

I keep having this recurring dream that I beat the shit out of Ron Swanson, to the point where he obviously needs to call 911 and get an ambulance.  While doing this I say, "government's not so bad, is it Ron?"

Post by: D.B. Barnes on December 22, 2011, 02:04:11 PM
Caught up last night with this season.  It's pretty weak, in my opinion, compared to what has come before. Waaaay too heavy into relationship drama for my taste.  The only consistently funny character this season has been Jean-Ralphio.

They have hit that pretty hard. I guess I just got really caught up in it. I think Poehler did such a fantastic job portraying the conflict between her undying devotion to her job and her love for Ben. It made for a lot of really nice moments. Jean-Ralphio was indeed awesome. Tom actually started to annoy me. His act just got a little tired.

Dave Sanderson is coming back!

Louis C.K.'s Return To NBC's Parks And Recreation

Quote
Perhaps the best sitcom on television is NBC's Parks and Recreation. Saddled right in the middle of NBC's scheduling and ratings woes, the show continues to deliver some of the best emotionally resonant comedy on the small screen. And emotional might be the best way to describe the return of Officer Dave Sanderson to Pawnee. That's right, as reported a few months ago, Louis C.K. is coming back to the NBC sitcom .

Officer Dave's reappearance on the sitcom next week couldn't have come at a worse/better time. Worse in terms of Ben and Leslie's budding relationship and better in terms of, well, adding conflict to Ben and Leslie's relationship as well as some assuredly awkward laughs. Oh, and it is Louis C.K. so obviously it's highly anticipated.

Officer Dave Sanderson is perhaps a more important character for Parks and Recreation than first glance might suggest. His arc at the beginning of the second season really helped the show turn the corner from bland The Office spin-off and into it's own, heartfelt and funny series. Unlike a lot of other comedies that achieve their laughs at the expense of any semblance of heart, Parks and Recreation is hilarious and yet, still manages to be supremely sweet.


Oh, and this:

So Ann is suddenly dating Tom now?  Do the writers have nothing better to do with her than just set her up as girlfriend to each male character?  What happened to the Ann from the pilot who was disgusted by Tom?  I guess she's lowered her standards because Tom sure hasn't changed one iota.

Who's this sorry Charlie, this sad sack of potatoes?

Yeah, I was a fan of hers leading up to "The Fight" but afterwards, I kinda fell in love. She killed it. The combination of her Janet Snakehole persona and hangover head-gear, I was pretty much hers.

Secondly, the sight-gag w/ Andy vomiting was hilarious in the television cut of "The Fight". However, it's spit-take worthy in the producer's cut of the episode. I lost my junk; it was so funny.

Onward to Season 4....

I wouldn't doubt it for a second. Apparently, the writers included Ron's affinity for woodworking based on Nick. He even has a DVD out titled Canoe Building with Nick Offerman. The canoes on the site are amazing.

She tried to teach it to me when I was a kid, but I didn't have the patience. I was never much for card games, anyway. I tried to get her into the show, but it wasn't really her cup of tea. She has pretty good taste in shows, but prefers the standard sitcom format.

Parks and Recreation
The Thursday night comedy starring Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman and Aziz Ansari will return for a fourth season (22 episodes) after boosting the network's fortunes in the Thursday at 9:30 slot after its midseason move. The comedy created by The Office's Greg Daniels from Mike Schur remains a critical darling, with Poehler earning a pair of lead actress nominations and the series scoring one last year as well.

Fuck yeah! Full season!!! WOOOOOO!!!

Here's some surprising news
http://www.cardboardconnection.com/2013-press-pass-parks-and-recreation-trading-cards

Quote
2013 Press Pass Parks and Recreation is the first trading card set for the popular and critically acclaimed sitcom. The show mixes traditional elements like autographs and relic cards, but the freshness of both the license and the signature lineup make for a big first impression for collectors.

Autographs fall two per box with all being signed on-card. Regular cast members and guest stars have signatures in the release including several first-time signers who are making big impressions on the Hollywood comedy scene. Amy Poehler (Leslie Knope), Rob Lowe (Chris Traeger), Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins) and Aziz Ansari (Tom Haverford) all have autograph cards in the set. Press Pass promises there will be more signers announced, both regular cast members and guest stars, before the set is released. Poehler and Lowe also have rare variation autographs.

Inserted one per box, Relic cards include pieces of show-worn costumes.

The 2013 Press Pass Parks and Recreation base set has 90 cards. They will focus on episodes from the first four seasons, capturing many of the quirkiest moments of the sitcom about municipal politics.

Boxes come with 24 packs, sticking with a traditional distribution format rather than a premium offering.

The Pawnee Animal Control's Flintstone workwhistle may very well be my favorite thing the show has done to date. That was so fantastic.

"Tougher than it looked though"

And of course Wittels worked there! :D

Too bad about Rob Lowe, but yay for Rashida.  They ran out of things to do with Ann several seasons ago.

Sad to see them go, even though yes, they've been unsure what to do with Ann for a long time. Still, she made a great confidant/foil for Leslie, and I'll miss their dynamic.

Rashida Jones ... leaving
Well that's the hotness quotent of the show cut by ~58% then. Not that the other 42% (http://l.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/wkg.1.C7rZgo0sFRDoTcGA--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7Zmk9aW5zZXQ7aD02MTI7cT04NTt3PTQwMQ--/http://media.zenfs.com/en-US/blogs/partner/470_2663757.jpg) isn't a draw but still.

Make sure you watch all the way to the end for a hilarious joke about women drivers. Thelma & Louise gets 5 stars.

Anyone else excited for the doppelganger-doings that's happening's this season? The casting has been outstanding.
