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.

Battle through season 1 and then enjoy the best sitcom of recent times
5 February 2020 | by silentbobniSee all my reviews

Probably my favourite comedy show of all time. Season 1 is a bit hard going due to it trying a bit too hard to be like the office but once you hit the first Tammy episode in season 2 then the real quality starts which is the only reason why it doesn't get a 10 from me.
