Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Dividing sitcom episodes by gender lines can be a tricky line to walk, but those in the camp of Daniels and Schur seem to really know how to pull it off. “Two Parties” takes a very straightforward premise – contrasting Leslie and Ben’s respective bachelorette and bachelor parties – and (as usual) makes the absolute most of it. Leslie of course can’t get through a party without resisting the temptation to stress over work and conduct business through panicked and ethically questionable means, and by contrast the guys got to live out their ideal evenings in what was probably the best and most egalitarian bachelor party ever. “Two Parties” didn’t necessarily make any grand statements about gender or romantic love, but it did showcase the lengths to which people will go in order to make their friends happy.

The bachelor party served to contrast Leslie »
