Parks and Recreation

Anyone still watching? I know it got criticized a lot during the first season (And probably to the point where people think once it's bad, it automatically stayed bad, which isn't true) but this season has been hilarious. Last night's episode (Guest starring Megan Mullally) was probably the best this series has done to date. Hell, I'd say it was a lot better than 30 Rock, since I got so much laughter out of it than ever before. That, and last week's Halloween episode, and the one with the Venezuelans and this season has seen a massive turnaround for this show. The first season was funny, but this season just got even better.

While it doesn't hold a candle to Office and 30 Rock, it is a cute show I enjoy watching. And it's got the best. theme song. ever. I think it's shown great improvement in its second year.

It feels like the only show that still has a theme song. 30 Rock is pretty good too, but P&R better sets the mood.

I too think season 2 is much better than season 1. Everyone and everything is just... funnier now. I wouldn't have predicted that Swanson would have become my favorite character.

Re: Parks and Recreation

I didn't like the first couple of episodes, but the show has really grown on me. The practice date episode is probably my favorite up to this point. Both the A story of Nope going on a practice date and the B-story of the office trying to dig up secrets about each other was probably more entertaining than anything I've seen on 30 rock this season. Actually the only comedy episode that was better was probably the jim/pam wedding episode. I think this show got a little squashed by high expectations, I hope they keep it on the air because it's a quality show.

P&R is pretty hit and miss for me. Some episodes (the Venezuelans) are comedy gold, some (the Halloween prankster) fall pretty flat for me. They've got a really good cast, but I think the writing is kind of uneven.

I'm still watching. I like it, but it can be really silly and stupid at times, like the whole Andy living in the pit thing. My favorite episode is the one where Leslie marries two gay penguins at the zoo.
