Parks and Recreation on NBC HD - Page 21

Very good episode indeed. I laughed many of times biggrin.gif
post #602 of 665
I didn't think this was among the show's best offerings, but it was funny enough. All of Ron's moments were hilarious, however.

As usual, the Ron moments were indeed hilarious.

I liked how the chief spoke of Andy as if he's some kind of genius simply for getting a perfect score on the written police exam, and the look on Chris' face as he was hearing the laudatory comments. It was a similar look of bewilderment after first seeing Jerry's wife.

The 1-hour wedding episode is tonight. Should be hilarious biggrin.gif
post #606 of 665
very enjoyable wedding ep.

once again, ron steals the show. love the ringmaking.

i thought the wedding ep was going to be a one hour show, turned out we got 2 half hour shows.

Just catching up on this show on the DVR. I think Ron taking phone calls on the talk show, while the passed out host was planking across the chairs, was one of the funniest moments in the entire series. "First ditch the terrier, and get a proper dog. Any dog less than 50 lbs is a cat, and cats are pointless".

I think Ron is my favorite sitcom character since (I’m dating myself)

My misanthropic viewpoint on life would be slightly alleviated if I knew that there is a real life Ron Swanson somewhere in the world.

Head on over to The Offerman Woodshop and click on the Who We Are link, check out Nick's bio and tell me if you don't think there's a lot of Ron Swanson in Nick Offerman and vice versa. Almost a crime that one man can have such diverse and abundant talents.

P&R, still a fun ride.

Loved the hand carved mustache comb.

Has there been any talk in regards to the future of Parks & Rec beyond the current season? I'd almost would have to think that NBC is renewing the show for another season given what felt like what should of been the series ending storyline suddenly got moved to the middle of the current season.
post #614 of 665
I would tend to lean in the direction that it will be renewed.

With NBC losing both 30 rock and the office this year, and given the loyal following this show generates, as well as the pundits appreciation of the show, it just seems to make too much sense to just keep this Thursday night special around to try and anchor some new sitcoms around it.

Also Amy getting a higher profile, vis a vis her co-hosting of the golden globes,also helps.

With that being said, look for it to be cancelled next week.

P&R and Parenthood. 2 NBC shows that are not ratings juggernauts (although the latter has picked up & retained a good amount of viewers in the last year or so, and...well...the former features Ron F**king Swanson!!), but tend to be favored by both critics & their loyal viewers. And they both appeal to the various coveted ad markets.

You may be right - NBC will pull a brilliant network-saving move & cancel both.

But I hope that is wrong. Why ditch a relatively solid performer w/ a good track record? Keep 'em both & build programming around them. That would be the logical move, IMO.

Parks and Rec is not going anywhere. It's NBC's highest rated sitcom besides the ending-this-year Office.

Good episode this week. Loved the two celebrity cameos. Ben Schwartz and Jason Schwartzman. Then again, Ben has been featured on this show before as apart of Rent-A-Swag's thing.. or something (One of Tom's business partner's)
post #618 of 665
The porn angle was predictable but still hilarious. "Too Big to Nail"...LOL!

Also enjoyed watching Ann trying to bond with April. Best rendition of "Time after Time" I have heard in a long time smile.gif
post #619 of 665
The producers and writers missed a big opportunity to have Rashida (Ann) sing in the wedding episodes. She's a great singer.

It's time they phase out council member jamm

He's become a one dimensional foil which the writers for this show are too good to keep recycling.

Time to introduce some new characters if they need an antagonist.
They've been very successful at working new characters into the cast.
Some new characters with their own peculiar personality quirks which has been this shows formula for success

Hey, mr. wally.

I agree.

mr. wally,

Did you like this week's episode? I loved it biggrin.gif

Ron was hilarious at the Doctor's office.

post #624 of 665
When isn't Ron fantastic?

I like how April and Andy are doing different things now. Not that I don't like them together, but it expands the possibilities when you put the two of them with others.

Yep very good episode. Laughed many times.

That's usually how I judge an episode, by how many times I laugh out loud. Just about the only sitcom on tv that makes me do so.

The week before when Ben went back to his hometown, I didn't laugh out loud till the final scene when me got cited for throwing his award into the water.

You get it. Ron is all-time classic sitcom character. Completely one of a kind.

It would be nice if the Emmys gave him some recognition.

And yes, I like pairing up Ron and April

Enjoy

Yeah, that was an 'OK' episode.

The scene with Ron answering questions at the hospital generated more laughs than the entire season of the Office so far.

"Do you have any history of mental disease in your family?"
"I have an uncle who does yoga."
'Sexual history?"
'Epic....and private."
