Storyline

Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in an Indiana Parks and Recreation Department, hopes to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping local nurse Ann Perkins turn an abandoned construction site into a community park. However, what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape, and a myriad of other challenges. Leslie's colleague Tom Haverford, who delights in exploiting his position for personal gain, is as likely to undermine her efforts as to help her, while her boss, Ron Swanson, is adamantly opposed to government in any form, even though he's a bureaucrat.

Goofs

Even if Pawnee went bankrupt there would be no precedent for the state to take over the city beyond its finances. Chris Tragaer could certainly direct its financial operations; however only elected officials could run the city and make the legal decisions for it. See more »

User Reviews

 
Two shows in one.
27 June 2018 | by fpuwasabadpresidentSee all my reviews

This show is really two shows. Pre season three and post season three.

Before season three the show was like the office, the main character is an idiot doing the best they can but failing. The show has very awkward humor and is really funny.

Post season three the show becomes very light hearted and goes for more the comedy the show is known for. It's about a smart capable main character who is a bit weird going against a bad system.

The show is really good and it can be very funny but the change is jarring and I know people who only like post season three and people who only like preseason three, I think this is also reflected by some reviews.

I recommend the characters are awesome.
