Parks and Recreation Mrs. Knope Goes to Washington
21 September 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Back with Leslie Knope but we are in Washington D.C. were two couples are there April/Andy and Ben/Leslie. Back to Pawnee and Ron is organizing the party that Leslie always did but is doing unlike ever before. DC and Leslie is at home as she explains all her loves of the capital. Back to Pawneeand the guys are going to eat a live pig they will kill. Reunion and of course the young couple has some sex, Ben has to leave and Leslie is left alone. Back to Pawnee and Ron is in charge but it is not going well. Leslie is turned down at a meeting and she's in a small Pawnee finding out there is much more Pawnee's. Leslie may be big in Pawnee but in Washington she is as small as her town is in the USA. In Pawnee Ron explodes in anger. At least Leslie gets to meets senators Barbara Boxer and Olympia Snow but Leslie has been really stressed so she cannot talk to the two and it's sad not to see our lovable Leslie but cranky Leslie. Another quick cameo from John McCain but Leslie does not get to see it. Tom and April finally break up. Leslie is upset that Ben is in a big town but she is a small town and Andy is now her person she can talk to about it. The two are very funny together and sympathetic because the two actors have great chemistry. If Washington cannot help Leslie will do it herself and that's the Leslie I love. Nice return and will Leslie gone it looks like the show has found a new and interesting way to use Ron and not just make him a one note character.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Nick Offerman)
