Far more so than the membership of the Motion Picture or Television Academys.

The only reason people care about the Golden Globes is that the HFPA has carefully marketed it as a bellwether for the Oscars. It's basically the Iowa Caucus of the Oscars race.

Seems like every year the HFPA baffoons vote in a show based only on 6 episodes. Last year, it was "The Walking Dead," (6 episode Season 1 that wasn't even great, but had killer ratings for cable). This year, sadly, it's the "New Girl."

Of course P&R is better than New Girl. Hell, "Happy Endings," (which New Girl ripped off in terms of general concept), is better than New Girl, as well as many other comedies.

Yes, great to see the show back!

Watching Leslie and gang attempting to cross the ice and make it onto the podium as the Gloria Estefan song played over and over again was one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time

Ben's claymation short was hilarious too!

Last night's episode was hilarious!

I liked the scene where they got pulled over by the police.

I thought it was hilarious. Andy and April have become my favorite characters (ok, maybe after Ron Swanson), and the more they are featured, the better. Andy's visits to the various doctors for all his maladies had me literally laughing out loud. Running headfirst into the ambulance and then calling for an ambulance (but not the one he ran into), classic Andy.

Andy: One guy looked at my p3ni$, he touched it too, which was kind of weird.

April: Yeah, that guy wasn't even a doctor.

Andy: Wait...what

I think that's the first time that Andy 'got' something

Yup.

Andy with his medical visits was hilarious!

Agreed. Don't know what you were watching mr. wally, but no less than four times during "Campaign Ad" I had to rewind the DVR due to missed dialogue when I was laughing so hard.

Ron's "perfect" bowling game at the end was hysterical. Enjoyed the episode this week. Best sitcom on TV. Wish more people would watch it.

Best episode so far this season.

Yeah, that was great! I also loved Ron's initial reaction to Tom's bowling style..."Son, people can see you!".

Was Tom wearing the same jacket as Gosling in "Drive"?

I also enjoyed learning that Pawnee only has a monoplex...LOL!

Both jackets have a scorpion on them. I'm sure that was the reference the Parks and Rec writers were going for, if only because Tom always seems insistent on following the latest fashion craze.

It was a brilliant episode throughout.

"When I eat, it is the food that is scared."

OK. Ron's scenes did lt for me last night. I was dying. The episode was really funny, but my 2 favorites were from Ron. The first one was the "this is my favorite restaurant in Pawnee" with the menu having 2 items; his face after was gold and had me rolling. And then the second part was the end, with his perfect game. That one was great. "I was never in here." Wonderful.

ron f******* swanson was killer last night.
post #471 of 665
watched it again over the weekend with my teenagers and we were dying.

so many great lines, so many intriguing subplots, such great characters.

this is getting close to my favorite sitcom of all time.

I guessed the Lil Sebastian meeting spot when they said it was something they disagreed about but Ben had come around on it LOL.

Fantastic episode tonight.

Chris with his sadness. Playing weird obscure music at the dance. One of those pieces sounding like chanting music :lol:

Ben, Ron, and Andy looking for the clues. Ron secretly fell in love with it, and was embarrassed to admit it.

Tom and Ann's date.

April put on makeup for the night out

I thought last night's episode was a bit weaker than recent weeks but there were still a few good laughs. I got a kick out of hearing all the titles of the murals in city hall documenting Pawnee's past atrocities..."Eating the Reverend", yikes! I also laughed at Chris considering Jerry as a potential partner since he technically contributed 50% of Millicent's DNA.

The scavenger hunt was amusing and I didn't expect Ron to be so into it. The guy at the snowglobe museum looked familiar. Wasn't he in Freaks & Geeks and some of Apatow's other productions?

Hope they explore the Ann/Tom angle for a while...see some comedic potential there
post #475 of 665
Since Chris wasn't with Ann, we still need to find out why the music got changed.

Biggest laugh for us was when he "fixed" the broken snow globe.
