I like The Money Pit.

Also, a sitcom with nothing left to say forced one of the dating couples to get married?  That's a new one.

Was there a show on another channel at the same time explaining why Parks & Rec is one of the best written shows on TV?

I'm still trying to parse that headline.

I'll get back to you if I make any progress.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: Mike Chewbacca: I'm not going to sit through 48 episodes of crap and "awkward humor" (think of Ben Stiller and Jim from American Pie) to get to the good parts. I'd rather watch Better Off Ted for sixth time.

That's also why I don't like the Office.  I just don't like 'humiliation humor'.  They did it 20 years ago called it Boy Meets World.


That, and I worked in a soul-crushing cubicle job for nearly 12 years. There's no way in fark that after a long day in my drab gray cube I'm going to watch a bunch of OTHER pathetic cubicle drones on TV.

/yes I was a cubicle drone
//Veronica also called us hobbits

ReapTheChaos: Couldn't care less.  Only reason I watch that show is

[i2.listal.com image 600x400]


Besides wanting to tonguepunch her fartbox just on general principle, she does a fantastic job with her relatively underwritten role in the show: disdainful of everyone but fiercely loyal to her husband, even though she knows he's a dimwit. I'd suggest that the entire show should be about April and Andy, but I realize that the only reason her character works so well is because she's doled out in tiny doses, and thus, doesn't become overexposed.

/wishes Aubrey Plaza would get overexposed...

pudding7: Shadow Blasko: "Did you catch Leslie and Ben's wedding on Parks and Recreation last night? If so, you missed the reason why this show is one of the best written on TV right now"

I'm still trying to parse that headline.

I don't understand the confusion.


the headline is saying that if you watched the episode, you missed why it's a good show.

headline doesn't make sense.

-1

without re-writing subby's headline too much, headline should've said,

"Did you catch Leslie and Ben's wedding on Parks and Recreation last night? If so, you saw why this show is one of the best written on TV right now."

or, going the other way,

"Did you miss Leslie and Ben's wedding on Parks and Recreation last night? If so, you missed the reason why this show is one of the best written on TV right now"

cameroncrazy1984: But that show still has Aziz Ansari in it, right? And that guy is just  TERRIBLE.


He makes me stabby.

I watched the first three episodes of P&R and did not laugh once. I've heard its great but I didn't see it.

After the completely horrible shiatpile season 1 was I just can't watch it any more.  I hear it got better, but every time I see it I just want to set off an EMP so that no one in a 5 mile radius will have to suffer.

Should have started with season 2.

loveblondieo: That was a wonderful episode.


Agreed.
I really like the optimism of this show. Once they figured out that Leslie's limitless sense of hope that she could make her little corner of the world a better place was the beating heart of the show, it all really came together around season 2. It is a nice contrast to The Office, which has just turned into a cynical, nihilistic mess, especially now that they seem to be trying to kill the one little light of hope on that show, the Jim and Pam relationship. I don't mind dark comedy, but The Office almost makes you want to kill yourself in the later seasons because it is just so utterly hopeless
