We hope everyone is still alive and okay after Fall TV’s first official premiere week. When you’re not catching up on broadcasts, head over to streaming for the best new options this week had to offer, including what I’m already calling one of the best shows of the year. Big talk.
The network’s full 2014-2015 lineup included the announcements that Parenthood’s Season 6 and Parks and Recreation’s Season 7 will be the final ones for both. I think a big group “aww” is in order here, but not the same kind of “aww” that Community turned into a catchphrase.
NBC has officially unveiled their 2014-2015 lineup, which reveals some big changes to their schedule the most notable of which is a very different Thursday night line-up. NBC has traditionally blocked out four half-hour slots for comedies on Thursday night, however this Fall, they've set The Biggest Loser in the 8:00 p.m. slot, followed by two new comedies and then the return of Parenthood...
Last night, Parks and Rec ended its sixth season with a very fine double episode featuring a slew of excellent guest stars (including Michelle Obama) and callback jokes. The series will be back next fall, but on Friday, showrunner Mike Schur confirmed that Season 7 will probably be Parks and Rec’s last, as well as talked about what he has planned for the show’s big ending.
Parks & Rec nails the Season 6 finale by expertly bring together all the threads throughout the season and then blowing it all up in the final moments.
Big news for Leslie and Ben means big secret for Andy in a very good character episode of Parks & Rec. Ben & Leslie head to the doctor after getting the big baby news last week, only to find the news getting bigger as there are triplets on the way.
Parks & Rec stays on its hot streak with its best episode of this season, it's only misstep is naming it after one of the show's all time great episodes.
Parks & Rec has one of its best episodes of the season by supplying lots of laughs and finding drama in the characters that actually feel relevant.
Parks & Rec celebrates another Galentine's Day with a redundant, but funny episode that matches up the cast in ideal fashion. Leslie and Anne's long distance relationship is having a hard time maintaining as well as Leslie would like, so she decides to have a covert freeing off under the guise of Galentine's Day.
Grimm lives! People say Friday is a deathslot for TV, however genre programming seems to be an exception there, as is the case for NBC's Grimm. The underrated supernatural crime procedural has held its own on Friday nights for three seasons, and it's confirmed to get a fourth.
Parks and Rec delivers another average episode that fizzles out after a strong start for a number of the night’s plotlines. Pawnee is launching a new website, dancing, ping-pong playing panda and all, and one of the first initiatives to launch with the site is a new slogan for the city.
With Ron Swanson’s new son, John “Redacted” Swanson, comes one of the best episodes of the season for Parks & Rec. Continuing this week is the struggle between the citizens of Pawnee and Eagleton as the animosity between the two reaches a fever pitch.
Parks & Rec weathers another mediocre episode that is saved by a Ben and Larry date and some classic Ron Swanson. Leslie gets caught up with trying to paint a pretty picture of the Pawnee/Eagleton merger six months in and the episode doesn't find anything for this storyline until the final moments.
With its focus on local politics, Parks and Recreation is well set up for political cameos, and while Michelle Obama certainly won't be the first big name to drop by the series, she's definitely a notable one. NBC announced today that Michelle Obama will be making a special cameo appearance on the season finale of Parks and Recreation.
Valentine's Day isn't for everyone. Whether you’re single, sick of it all, or somewhere in between, finding a way to distract yourself on the overtly lovey-dovey day is a necessity. But we’re not proponents of the mentality that if you’re not in love you must be miserable and bitter instead. It’s silly, and stupid, and a waste of everyone’s time. Plus what sort of monster would encourage you to be unhappy? (Spoiler Alert: not me.)
