Bye Bye Li’l Sebastian: Remembering the Top Ten Recurring Characters of Parks and Recreation

25 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

During its rocky first season, Parks and Recreation faced much criticism for being too similar to The OfficeLeslie was just a female Michael Scott, and Ron Swanson was the new Dwight Schrute. Setting it in the vibrant and weird Indiana town of Pawnee instantly assuaged some of these fears. Even during that first season, it was clear from the town hall meetings, where Leslie and company had to defend themselves against the many residents of Pawnee, that Michael Schur and his writers had dreamt up one of the most vivid communities for a sitcom. So, in honor of Parks and Recreation’s end, here are the ten best recurring characters on the show.

1. The Tammys

While it may seem unfair to group three characters together, especially in the top spot, Parks has too many amazing recurring characters to properly showcase in ten slots. Ron Swanson’s two ex-wives and »

How Parks and Recreation Outshined The Office

24 February 2015 12:33 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It's hard to remember now, but back in 2008, Parks and Recreation — before it was Parks and Recreation — was maybe going to be a spinoff of The Office. That's not how things ended up, clearly, but the shows share plenty of DNA: creators Greg Daniels and Mike Schur, a mockumentary format, Rashida Jones, etc. While The Office held much stronger ratings and a longer run, Parks will close its seven seasons as the more successful show. Best episodes versus best episodes, The Office and Parks are perhaps evenly matched. But The Office had so many bad episodes in its nine-season run, whereas Parks' lowest lows are pretty mild. Legacy-wise, Parks is going out pretty close to the top of its game. The Office went out … not that way.Here in Parks' final run, I've been thinking a lot about the show's place in the canon, and that means thinking at »

Retta Remembers: How I Got to Know the Parks and Recreation Cast

24 February 2015 8:24 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Donna Meagle and her real-life counterpart Retta didn’t have much to do (or say) when Parks and Recreation began its run back in 2009. “That was part of the pitch to me for the show,” the actress explains. “It was going to be a lot like The Office, where there wouldn’t be a lot in the beginning.” Creators Michael Schur and Greg Daniels promised that would likely change as the show took shape — and they were true to their word. Retta has been a series regular since season three, and Donna is easily one of the show’s most beloved (and meme-friendly) characters. (Two words: Treat yo'self.) “I personally see her as the voice of the audience,” Retta says of her on-air alter-ego. “She sees the ridiculous stuff everyone does, and she kinda says to the audience, ‘I get it. I know they’re crazy, too. But they’re family. »

Emma Watson Declares Her Love for Steve Carell in Handwritten Note

24 February 2015 7:28 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A handwritten thank you note can go a long way.

Emma Watson proved this when she took the time to write Steve Carell a sweet message to thank him for his fashion choices at the Oscars. It turns out the 52-year-old Foxcatcher actor was wearing #HeForShe cufflinks, designed to support Watson's gender equality United Nations campaign.

The 24-year-old Harry Potter actress took to both her Twitter and Facebook to personally thank the Oscar-nominated comedian.

Video: Taylor Swift Supports Emma Watson's Speech on Feminism

"You were pure genius in Little Miss Sunshine (one of my all time favorite films), my brother became obsessed with you after Anchorman, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after Crazy, Stupid, Love, I hated that guy you played in The Way Way Back, and then you were mind-blowing in Foxcatcher," she gushed. What about The Office, Emma?!

New on Netflix Streaming: March 2015

24 February 2015 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What will March bring to Netflix? Plenty of great TV shows, some killer recent and classic movies, and a slew of highly anticipated Netflix Originals.

First off, there's more amazing TV coming to Netflix in March than we've seen in the past six, with new seasons of "Mad Men," "Glee," and "Archer" coming to the streaming service. What's more? The complete series of "3rd Rock From the Sun" (Yes!) and "A Different World" are also being added. For the latter, I plan on queueing up some "very special episodes" that remind me of my childhood. Also, Marisa Tomei was on it. Remember?! In addition to the shows you know, some spankin' new Netflix Originals are being added: Tina Fey's half-hour comedy "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," starring "The Office's" Ellie Kemper, and "Bloodline," a dramatic thriller starring Oscar-winner Sissy Spacek.

In terms of movies, Netflix is not disappointing. Recent releases »

How Parks and Recreation served up prime-time feminism amid the laughs

24 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Pawnee’s Parks and Recreation department is finally closing its doors on Tuesday when the show ends after seven seasons. We speak to two of the show’s writing team Aisha Muharrar and Megan Amram about what makes Pawnee tick

Parks and Recreation is an outlier on the television landscape. A small, originally unloved spin-off of The Office, over seven seasons it has become a cult hit that will leave a hole in NBC’s programming – and Us television – when it finishes tonight.

Led by Amy Poehler, the show was shamelessly idiosyncratic, focusing on the ennui of small-town politics and managing to find the funnies in planning regulations, while giving the world stars such as Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones and Nick Offerman.

How Parks and Recreation Managed to Survive for 7 Seasons

23 February 2015 2:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Being a fan of Parks and Recreation over the past six years has meant loving a show that almost always seemed on the verge of cancellation. During the early seasons, journalists interviewing creator Michael Schur were pretty much required to bring up the show’s low ratings and ask him to gauge its odds of survival — so much so that Schur eventually began to paint life on the Nielsen bubble as a positive. “I’ve come to really enjoy the uncertainty. I think it breeds good ideas,” he told HitFix’s Alan Sepinwall in 2013. And yet, when Parks signs off tomorrow, it will have run seven seasons and 125 episodes: That’s a short run, perhaps, compared to other classic comedies (200 for The Office), but more than enough to avoid the dreaded label of “critically beloved but short-lived” (we will never let go, Happy Endings). So how did Parks manage to »

How 'Parks and Recreation' found all-time greatness in simple goodness

23 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Early in the debut episode of "Parks and Recreation," Leslie Knope turned to the camera and announced, "It's a good time to be a woman in politics: Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, me, Nancy Pelosi. I like to tell people, 'Get on board and buckle up, because my ride's going to be a big one.'" At the time, Leslie (Amy Poehler) was a low-level functionary in the small town government of Pawnee, Indiana — moments before that declaration, we saw her at work, trying to coax a homeless man off of a playground slide — and that speech marked her as delusional. In hindsight, she was prophetic. Leslie began the series a powerless civil servant who was an object of derision and/or pity. She ends it (the series finale airs tomorrow night at 10 on NBC) an influential federal official who counts Madeleine Albright as a confidante and scares the bejeezus out of John McCain, »

Dan Aykroyd Still Wants To Make A “Conventional” 'Ghostbusters' Sequel, But Is Still Down With Female Gang

20 February 2015 10:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There was always that kid in school whose gum would drop out of his mouth, into the dirt, and he would pick it up, dust it off, pop it back in and go, “it’s still good.” Or, to give a more current example of desperation and denial, there’s that episode of “The Simpsons” where Homer has the spit roast pig and it’s fired through the air, through mud, dirt, garbage etc. and poor old Homer insists it’ll still be ok to eat. Dan Aykroyd is a little bit like that. Sure, a “Ghostbusters” movie is going forward and he’s happy about it, but in many ways, it’s not his “Ghostbusters” movie at all. For four or five years now, Aykroyd and a slew of different writers tried to write “Ghostbusters 3.” They did in fact several versions of it, Etan Cohen came on board to write a draft, »

Justified’s Timothy Olyphant Boards Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden Film

20 February 2015 6:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX’s Justified is just weeks away from the finale of its sixth and final season, but star Timothy Olyphant doesn’t need to worry about being out of work once it’s curtains for the acclaimed drama. Deadline reveals that the actor is negotiating a deal to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley in Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden pic.

Olyphant will portray a CIA agent who befriended Snowden before the American contractor, who leaked thousands of classified documents that he acquired while working for the Nsa, fled to Russia seeking asylum.

The actor was last seen on screen in ill-received dramedy This is Where I Leave You, but he’s known to TV aficionados not only for Justified but also for his stints on Deadwood and The Office. This latest project is sure to send his stock soaring even higher.

'Parks and Recreation': Ben Schwartz's memories of Jean-Ralphio

20 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With “Parks and Recreation” only a few days away from ending, we’ve been running a lot of stories about the show’s history, including Jim O’Heir recalling the strange life of Garry Gergich, and Mike Schur explaining the show’s weird recurring characters and running gags . One of those weirdoes was Jean-Ralphio Saperstein, Tom Haverford’s best friend and a monstrous human being. Earlier this week, I emailed actor Ben Schwartz a few questions about how he got the part, the origin of Jean-Ralphio’s hair, love of singing, and more. The “Parks” series finale airs Tuesday night at 10 on NBC. Before then, I have one more big interview to publish, plus a look back at what made this one of TV’s best comedies. Mike said that Jean-Ralphio was born out of you spending an hour in his office and making him realize you were funny enough »

What You Can Learn From New Streaming Service Shout! Factory TV

20 February 2015 3:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Streaming video is a godsend if you want to catch up with recent seasons of TV series. But what's a TV fan to do who wants to stream older shows? Netflix has very little from before the millennium, and Amazon Prime has very little from before 1990.

That's not a knock; the big streaming services know their market. Still, it's worth remembering that Amazon's initial appeal as a bookseller was it's long-tail catalog, the notion that comprehensiveness was worthwhile because somebody somewhere would want that obscure or ancient title, that the markets for all those titles were collectively significant and worth catering to, and that the Internet had at last made it easier to connect those customers with what they wanted.

But until the big streaming services step into the long-tail breach, Shout Factory TV (at shoutfactorytv.com) is ready to make a home there. The boutique streaming service, which is free and requires no subscription, »

'Parks and Recreation' history, Part 2: Bill Murray, Burt Macklin & more

19 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, I published the first half of a long email exchange with “Parks and Recreation” co-creator Mike Schur looking at the origins and evolutions of some of the show’s most memorable supporting characters and running gags. That discussion concludes today with talk of DJ Roomba (who came very close to never being a part of our lives), Li’l Sebastian, Burt Macklin and a lot more. But we start out with the first — and last — appearance of Pawnee’s greatest mystery man. I know you had talked in the past about wanting to get Bill Murray to play the occasionally-mentioned but never-seen Mayor Gunderson. How did that actually come about? And if he had said no, was there a back-up Gunderson plan, or would he have simply remained a mystery forever? Mike Schur: We wanted to do an episode in the final season where someone died. We settled on Gunderson, »
