Anybody watch Parks And Recreation on NBC here?



It's not very popular (compared to the other shows on at that time), but imo it's the best comedy on TV, not including cable shows (like It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia which is also great). I didn't care for Amy Poehler until watching this show. I personally think it's even funnier than the Office, as The Office tries to make the viewer cringe all that time which gets annoying. I like The Office, but it's gotten sillier and a lot less subtle in humor over the years. Parks And Recreation and The Office have the same creator by the way.

Also, Parks And Recreation gave us this little gem a couple weeks ago.



Discuss.

I've watched it a couple of times but I don't know the times it comes on so I never get to see it when I'd like. But from the episodes I've seen it's deinitely hilarious as all hell.

The Office (seasons 1-5) is a lot funnier in my opinion.

I love NBC Thursday, period. Plus Rashida Jones and Aubrey Plaza make me feel warm and fuzzy in all the happy places.

No, I have. Wasn't into it. And even setting aside my hatred for Amy Poehler, her character is such a blatant rip-off of Michael Scott. "Oh hey, I'm an obnoxious, socially awkward, incompetent person who has somehow gotten into a position of moderate power." It's ridiculous. I know they have the same creator but come on.

EDIT: Now Community, on the other hand, definitely rivals the Office in my opinion.

I stopped watching because it was a total Office rip-off, but I heard it got better and have enjoyed it very much. Also, that chart is gold. Plus, it's between The Office and 30 Rock, so why would you not watch it?

At first it seems that way, but the big difference is that Amy Poehler is actually very smart and hardworking. Michael is stupid and not good at his job. And Community is just too smug about itself.

THIS, SO MUCH.

I've had both of them as my avatar since I started watching it.


as for the NBC Thursday block, I love Community (probably because I'm at a community college myself), I loved the first few seasons of The Office but it's clearly declined, love Parks and Rec, 30 Rock is somewhere between like and love for me, I don't like Outsourced, and that new Perfect Couples show is really bad.

Yeah, I don't get Community. Granted, I've only watched a few episodes, but I don't get the hubub it receives here.

Perfect Couples isn't great, and Outsourced is just stupid racism. Not funny at all.

I HATE OUTSOURCED. I've seen probably 5 episodes, and 90% of the jokes rely on middle eastern stereotypes about how they're prudish and don't get our culture.

first season was mostly pretty bad. the second season was great.

this season is shaping up to be pretty great, too. i mean, how can a show with Adam Scott go wrong?

It definitely takes a while to sink in, but once you come to accept it, it becomes the greatest show ever.

I'm glad this show has finally seemed to catch on. Now hopefully it doesn't go downhill like the Office did when it caught.

Get the dvd, it's great. It's just like the second season in that it has about an hour and a half of deleted scenes, all just as good as the material shown on tv. Plus it's just as funny as season 2 which is an achievement all on its own.

Anyone else have a tough time picking a favorite character? It's seriously a four way tie between April, Ron, Andy, and Jean-Ralphio

The only season I watched was whichever one ended back in May (or sometime around that) but it was definitely one of the funniest shows on television.

Pissed my pants when Aubrey Plaza started talking about Neutral Milk Hotel.

I'll probably just torrent it or something for now.

My favorite character is probably April. The writing for her is fantastic.

Chris Treger is the best. Lit-erally.

Also, went to the NBC store over the summer and got a shirt with the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness. It's awesome.

Aubrey Plaza (April) looked absolutely gorgeous on Conan the other night.



What's surprising is that she's a lot like her character IRL. One of the creators met her before they had the idea for the character and wrote it based around her.
