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”

Post-hiatus musings: USA Network edition (Burn Notice and Suits)

After nearly a month, my fairly substantial hiatus here at TVS is over. I am happy to be back providing content for you folks on a regular basis. In my time off, I’ve missed all sorts of television, both viewing- and writing-wise. To combat that, I’ll be whipping up a number of random posts with…… Continue reading Post-hiatus musings: USA Network edition (Burn Notice and Suits)

Parks and Recreation, “Harvest Festival”

I think “Harvest Festival” might be my favorite episode of Parks and Recreation ever. I’m not really confident in that opinion since I’m still basking in the afterglow of watching the episode twice in less than a few hours and I’m mostly confident that it isn’t the “best” episode ever, but good lord do I…… Continue reading Parks and Recreation, “Harvest Festival”

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. Although it’s moderately disappointing that I didn’t have time to write about…… Continue reading Parks and Recreation, “Indianapolis”

Parks and Recreation, “Ron & Tammy: Part Two”

Bringing back successful supporting characters is always a  bit of a crapshoot. If their initial introduction to the series and its world is so tremendous, it’s always going to be hard to top or create a story that lives up to the fans’ expectations. And one of the easiest ways to try to avoid any…… Continue reading Parks and Recreation, “Ron & Tammy: Part Two”

Parks and Recreation, “Flu Season”

There’s been a lot of hype about Parks and Recreation’s “Flu Season.” Showrunner Michael Schur has consistently said that it is the series’ best effort to-date, the critics were all buzzing about it once they received screeners near the end of 2010 and in general, this is supposed to be the episode for the series.…… Continue reading Parks and Recreation, “Flu Season”

No more questions: Parks and Recreation is already better than The Office has ever been

Note: I have not seen any of season three like many real critics. This argument is based mostly on season two and just a bit on my own assumptions/critical acclaim for season three. 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
