Parks and Recreation Review

without comments

I just caught NBC’s latest attempt to get out of the ratings basement, Parks and Recreation. Half-way through the first episode, I had formed my initial opinion on the show; Parks is an unfunny version of The Office. By the end of that first episode, my initial opinion was replacement with my current opinion of the show; Parks is a mostly unfunny version of The Office. I think I chuckled once when Tom, a character with Indian or Middle Eastern ancestry, describes himself as a redneck.

Parks and Recreation takes place in the fictional town of Pawnee, IN. Amy Poehler plays the character of Michael Scott Leslie Knope, Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation Deputy Director. Rashida Jones plays Ann Perkins, a nurse who’s boyfriend broke both of his legs after falling into an abandoned construction site.
