Parks and Recreation #1- Because Amy and Rashida are sure to be a winning team

Parks and Recreation
Welcome to the 1st thread dedicated to NBC's newest addition to the comedy Thursday lineup


Description from NBC.com: From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels (NBC's "The Office," "King of the Hill") and Michael Schur (NBC's "The Office," "Saturday Night Live") comes a new mockumentary that looks at the exciting world of local government. The new half-hour comedy will examine the mundane but necessary ways that people interact with their government, and ask why it's frequently so complicated, as everyone knows from standing in line at the DMV, applying for home construction permits, or trying to get the city to fix a pothole. The documentary cameras follow Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler, NBC's "Saturday Night Live," "Baby Mama") a mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana. In an attempt to beautify her town, and advance her career, Leslie takes on what should be a fairly simple project: help local nurse Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones, NBC's "The Office," "Unhitched") turn an abandoned construction pit into a community park. Opposing them are defensive bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, real estate developers, and single-issue fanatics, whose weapons are lawsuits, the jumble of city codes, and the very democratic process that Leslie loves so much.

Cast:
Amy Poehler - Leslie Knope
Aziz Ansari - Tom Haverford
Rashida Jones - Ann Perkins
Nick Offerman - Ron Swanson
Aubrey Plaza - April Ludgate
Paul Schneider - Mark Brendanawicz

Fans:


So is anyone else excited to see how this show is? I love Amy Poehler, so I can't wait to see if this show is any good.

Thanks for the new thread. Been seeing a lot of promotion for this show. Got it edited in the thread guide.

I cannot wait for this. I'm excited because it combines some really great elements- the team behind The Office, Amy, and Rashida. The previews look hilarious.

I agree. I wouldn't even be considering watching it if it didn't have all of these elements to it. Hopefully it doesn't disappoint.

I like that it takes place in a small town in Indiana. Those shows that aren't set in LA or NYC always draw my attention because it seems like there aren't very many of them.

Well if the same writers as the office did it, I have to check it out.

I noticed that poster too, IndyFan!

I enjoyed it! I think it needs a little bit of time to get it's footing and get settled, but I think it can be really good. Also, I understand the appeal of making it very similar to The Office, but I think it needs something to distinguish itself from The Office. Every time I saw Leslie, I felt like I was watching Michael Scott (which, again, has some appeal, but it needs something that makes it different other than just the actors). I think it will become its own show in time, though. I'm definitely going to be watching again next week to see how this continues.

I thought the pilot was ok. I don't think I laughed once though. But, the pilot of The Office wasn't the best thing ever at first either, so I will keep watching and see if the show finds it's own footing/groove.

The best thing for me was the Mark/Leslie stuff...........already loving that vibe.

And it was great to see my girl Rashida.
