And just like that: everyone and their mother is getting in on the digital series game. First came the announcement that Jason Katims’ two stalwart series — >Parenthood and Friday Night Lights — were getting the tiny tube treatment, and now it seems that several other NBC series are getting the same in the wake of their series’ hiatuses, including Parks and Recreation, Grimm, and Chicago Fire. It’s almost as if the networks are taking the Internet seriously or something.
Parks & Rec says goodbye to Ann & Chris in a funny, sweet and perfectly handled send off for the two. Ann and Chris have caught some flack from time to time as of late and the show felt like it was really spinning its wheels this season with the two.
It’s the end of an era in Pawnee, Indiana, where the good folks in the Parks and Recreation department are forced to bid farewell to two of its most beloved community members. Sniff. The time has unfortunately come: tonight on NBC, Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins will finally move to Michigan and it is literally the saddest day in the history of sad, television-related days. To pull a Liz Lemon on you all, we’re going to have to go talk to some food about this. Where’d you put my waffles?
Parks & Rec finds a strong angle for Ben and Leslie while also maybe finding a fun future for Andy, or should I say, Mr. Karate. Leslie getting drunk n the power of being married to the city manager was bound to happen, but they played it out to particularly strong effect.
It’s Treat Yoself Thursday, America: and that means a new episode of Parks and Recreation is only a few hours away from gracing our television screens. The NBC comedy series may be saying goodbye to Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe next week, but this go-around is all about hard nipples, chard bodies, and having a whine at work. There are so many puns in our collective future.
The time has come, fans of NBC's Parks and Recreation, for Ann Perkins and Chris Traeger to leave Pawnee, Indiana once and for all. And with the episode containing their farewell upon us — airing next Thursday, January 30th — several photos of the bittersweet adieu have surfaced, ensuring that many a tear will be shed before the last box is packed and shipped off to stinky Michigan (sorry, Michigan).
One thing remains fairly clear about NBC’s current pilot season strategy: ladies, ladies, ladies. And leading the pack is all-around queen of wonderful hilarity, Amy Poehler. The network has recently wrangled several new series for potential pick-ups next season from the likes of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, and even a CIA drama that would mark the television return of Katherine Heigl. That’s a lot of women running stuff over at the peacock, y'all.
New Beginnings doesn't really seem like one for Parks & Rec, as the episode spins its wheels in another lackluster entry for the show.
Holy cats, you guys: do we have a shotgun wedding on the horizon for NBC’s Parks and Recreation? Sure seems that way in the preview for tonight’s all-new episode, titled “New Beginnings.” Either way we feel confident in saying that this is literally the most exciting shotgun wedding we've ever seen. Oh man, Leslie Knope's either going to be real excited or real steamed about this.
"Second Chunce" marks the 100th episode of Parks & Rec and while it doesn’t have a whole lot of spectacle it is a great little episode of the show. It’s Leslie’s last day as city Councilwoman and she is looking for any reason to try and not leave the position. When Councilman Dexhart commits another sex scandal Leslie wants to throw her hat back into the ring.
Good news, friends and residents of Pawnee, Indiana: Parks and Recreation returns to NBC this Thursday. And with that comes a bevy of reasons to celebrate and get excited for the second half of one of the most charming and hilarious comedies on television. Not only because it’s the 100th episode of the series — a major milestone for any show: hello, syndication rights — resulting in a 19-minute video lookback, but because we also get a bit more of the House Saperstein. We’re chockablock with Parks, and it feels so good.
2013 has been a great year for television, so narrowing down our list of favorites was no easy task. As TV Blend has numerous writers with varying tastes in TV shows, we decided to go solo this year in sharing our Top 5 lists of the best series of 2013. This is Jesse's list, which begins with...
Another double dose of Parks & Rec this week shows off its strengths and weaknesses as it evolves with its changing cast.
I decided this season that I wasn't going to drive myself crazy trying to watch The X-Factor and The Voice and try to keep up with my favorite scripted series at the same time. It's too hard to keep up with everything and frankly, I'm kind of burned out on singing competitions. So, it's back to just one singing competition a year for me. See you in January, American Idol.
Parks and Rec keeps getting back in its stride with a great episode for Mr. Swanson and the fantastic return of Councilman Jamm.
