Review: Parks and Recreation, “Smallest Park”

  I haven’t written about Parks and Recreation once this season. Various personal commitments typically keep me to two reviews on Thursday night/Friday morning, I’d frankly just prefer to discuss the likes of Community and The Vampire Diaries at those times. However, although I have enjoyed much of Parks and Rec’s fourth season, I’ve also…… Continue reading Review: Parks and Recreation, “Smallest Park”

Parks and Recreation, “Indianapolis”

Because of my schedule, I don’t get to write about Parks and Recreation every week and that just makes me sad. I think I’ve settled in on a schedule where I write about every other episode, which is better than nothing, I guess.

Even with my small profile as an “online television critic,” or my time at my undergraduate university newspaper, the question I’ve probably…… Continue reading No more questions: Parks and Recreation is already better than The Office has ever been

2009-10 season wrap: Parks and Recreation

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be summarizing my thoughts on many of the series that ended just as the “official” television season came to a close recently. Overview: After a short first season that felt too much like an Office spin-off that didn’t quite know how to make its characters act like real people,…… Continue reading 2009-10 season wrap: Parks and Recreation
