Trivia

When Leslie tells Ann how to get onto the subject of the parks budget while on her date with Chris, she suggests the example of a favorite movie, "Jurassic Park, parks are so great, parks department needs more money." Four years later, Chris Pratt, who portrays Andy Dwyer, would star in Jurassic World (2015), the reboot of Jurassic Park. See more »

Still great
9 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I expect many shows to be the type of show that starts out really well and just gets less and less wonderful as the writers run out of ideas and the expectations get higher, but Parks and Recreation seems to be getting better and better. The season starts out strongly. There is more of the character Chris, who seemed like a one-episode guest star type of character - though this is the most recent episode I've seen and I'm not sure if he's here to stay yet.

The supremely annoying Mark seems to be out of the picture and it also seems like Ben is starting to become a recurring character. The episode picks off after the summer of the events in the second season. Andy and April will probably be together within the next few episodes. These are just a few fairly obvious thoughts I had while watching the episode.

It's a great episode. And as far as comedy's concerned, the episode hits big.
