Well, at least 2 of the 4 shiatty, unfunny characters have left. Now if Amy Pohler and Adam Scott would leave the show it would be perfect. The character of Leslie Knope is so painfully unfunny, and I LITERALLY fast forward through her parts unless it has Tom. Ron, April or Andy in it. I can't remember a show where the main character was so anti-funny but the secondary characters were so good.

Mad_Radhu: Wellon Dowd: FlashHarry: Wellon Dowd: I tried to watch P&R but found it so painfully unfunny that I gave up after three episodes despite the presence of Ms. Plaza.

season one is quite slow. season two onward, the show becomes pure comedy gold.

I've heard that before but I fail to see why anyone sat through all of season one. The first episode of Orange is the New Black left me in the same position; "it gets better" they say but I have no interest in watching more.

I have better things to do than watch crappy shows that I'm promised will get better, like getting to the gym in 26 minutes. Besides, I don't even own a television.

Comedies often take some time before the cast chemistry gels and the writers get the characters figured out, so it generally pays to be patient if the show has good buzz. Even Seinfeld had a TERRIBLE first season before everything gelled.

Just skip to season 2 and go from there. If you still don't like it, then it just isn't your cup of tea. It's just silly to dismiss a show that is so widely regarded as being one of the best comedies out there right now.

Yeah season 1 picked up when they got rid of Leslie's schoolgirl crush on the city planner guy and stopped trying to be "the office".

Also Ron Swanson is just epic.

Ron Swanson is one of the greatest television characters of all time, up there with Archie Bunker, Jimmy James, and Jack Donaghy.  As long as he's still on the show, they'll literally do okay without Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins.

Mad_Radhu: Mugato: Aubrey Plaza is leaving to do softcore?

This may be relevant to your interests.

Wife and I saw this over the weekend. Even though she doesn't like coming-of-age sex comedies, she loved this.

I really don't understand actors/actresses  who leave jobs with a steady pay check:
