10 Best Parks And Recreation Episodes

7 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

NBC

Now that Parks and Recreation is off the air, it’s time to pay tribute to the show that has made audiences laugh more over the past seven years than any other program on television. It had an unlikely climb to success, after a shaky first season with low ratings and mixed reviews from the critics.

But just like Leslie Knope herself, Parks and Recreation found a way to keep going and, after some minor retooling, was back on the air for the second season, better than ever. Since then, it’s been a comedy juggernaut, never managing to become NBC’s ratings darling, but steadily gaining viewers as people discovered the show on Netflix and realized just how hilarious it was.

The show lasted for an impressive seven seasons but alas, all good things must come to an end. It just aired its season finale earlier this week, »

7 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy Thursday, Boys & Girls! Wait. Didn't we just give you a podcast yesterday? Aren't y'all lucky! It's a double-dose of Firewall & Iceberg this week. In this podcast, we have reviews of "House of Cards," "The Last Man on Earth," "Secrets and Lies" and "Battle Creek." One show we strongly endorse. Two shows we strongly reject. And the third? Well, you'll have to listen to find out.  And then we had a few minutes, so we made fun of the Oscars a little. It's not the longest of podcasts, but combined with the 80 minutes we did on "Parks and Recreation" yesterday? Yeah. Seems sufficient. Here's today's breakdown: "House of Cards" (01:00 - 13:15) "The Last Man on Earth" (13:15 - 20:40) "Secrets and Lies" (20:45 - 31:35) "Battle Creek" (31:35 - 42:55) The Oscars (43:00 - 51:20) As always, you can subscribe to The Firewall & Iceberg Podcast over at the iTunes Store, »

House Of Cards Season 3 Review

13 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review was based off the first six episodes of season 3, which were provided to us prior to broadcast.

After two seasons of plotting and scheming to get what’s owed to him, Frank Underwood spends the first few episodes of House of Cards’ third season trying to pass an agenda that only he could give America: a proactive foreign policy and a vicious new jobs program that aims to roll back entitlements. Disagree with President Underwood? So long, you’re off the team! Please don’t make a scene as you leave the White House, we’ll bring your things to you in the lobby. Hardball is fun when you’re leader of the Free World, but even the President of the United States has his limitations, as Frank learns to his growing frustration.

House of Cards‘ third season truly owns the dark side of politics, and with Frank »

How Parks and Recreation Gave Chris Pratt the Platform to be a Star

14 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s a version of this article that tries to argue that Chris Pratt is the secret Mvp of the Parks and Recreations universe, combing through all the previous hours of the series to show just how Pratt’s performance as Andy Dwyer provided it energy and jokes that flushed out the show’s comic tone better than almost any other character. The article would then end with an impassioned plea for Hollywood to take notice and not waste this clearly singular comic talent. That article doesn’t exist because Chris Pratt did the unthinkable and went and made himself a big ol’ movie star.

The notion that a relatively low-performing sitcom airing on broadcast television could have within its stable of stars two McU superheroes (Ant-Man, coming this summer) is relatively ridiculous, even given that one of those stars is Paul Rudd. But Chris Pratt has spent seven seasons »

Parks And Recreation: we love you and we like you

19 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We wave a fond goodbye to one of the funniest, kindest sitcoms in recent memory, NBC's Parks And Recreation...

On Tuesday night America bade farewell to the people of Pawnee, Indiana for the last time as NBC sitcom Parks And Recreation reached the end of its seven-year run.

The final episode, One Last Ride, sees Leslie Knope unite with her former Parks Department colleagues to mend a broken swing, celebrating the good old days as each of the gang prepares to move on to the next stage in their lives. As the friends (or, as Ron puts it, ‘workplace proximity associates’) enjoy their last day together, we get a glimpse ahead at the future to learn what becomes of our beloved heroes (And Garry/Larry/Terry/Jerry).

If you were expecting something more explosive and dramatic for Parks’ double-length finale, then you’ve probably been watching a different show for the last seven years. »

Michael Schur Answers Your Lingering Parks and Recreation Questions

25 February 2015 3:40 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hello, Vulture Readers, My apologies for the delay in responding to these thoughtful questions about the end of Parks and Rec. The answers were intended to go up much earlier, but the last week has been a little nuts, and a lot sad, and I couldn't answer them until today. Thank you for watching the show, and caring about the show, for the last six years. It's a rare thing, and the entire staff and crew were extremely aware of how lucky we were to have passionate fans who were invested in the work we were doing. Best,MikeEditor's note: The first two questions for Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur are from the Vulture editors. The rest were submitted by readers. In 2011, Vulture credited Parks for pioneering a comedy of super-niceness. In ten years, how would you feel if that is how it were remembered? Is it a fair »

Amy Poehler Made a Pilot With the Godfather of Improv When She Was 23 and It Is So Weird

25 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In honor of the Parks and Rec finale, Second City unearthed an old pilot that Amy Poehler made in 1995 alongside improv guru Del Close and fellow future famous person Adam McKay. It's called Rvtv, and it is very strange. Co-star Matt Dwyer tells Splitsider, "I honestly do not recall where the concept came from," and that really says it all.  »

In Praise of the Flash-Forward Finale

25 February 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I cried during last night's Parks and Recreation finale because I'm not a monster. Of course I cried. Everyone lives so happily ever after! Leslie had such a great explanation of why one might want to have children! You could even hear Mouse Rat's greatest hits playing. Viva sincerity. That explains most of why I cried, but a tiny bit was residual crying from Parenthood's very similar flash-forward-oriented series finale a few weeks ago. If this becomes the go-to way for shows to end, that is more than fine by me.This device has been executed gracefully over the years. Six Feet Under is the high-water mark for this kind of finale, but showing how everyone dies only makes sense on a show about … well, how everyone dies. The West Wing put a slightly gentler spin on it, showing everyone several years into the future. They did it briefly, but »
