A day ahead of their upfront presentation, NBC has posted their 2013-2014 schedule, which lays out where most of the new and returning series will air throughout the week come next fall. A few notable schedule changes appear to be taking place, including a move to Wednesdays for Revolution and a shift to Thursdays for Parenthood. Absent from the list is Community, but NBC did include it among the scripted series confirmed to return, so it will be back. It's just a matter of when.
Parks and Recreation Watch: Season 5 Finale - Are You Better Off
Parks & Rec can't end on this note, not just because it wasn't a great episode, but because it seems like it still has plenty of stories to tell. I expect this to not be the series finale of the show and I appreciate the confidence the show has going forward that it will be back.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 21 - Swing Vote
An average episode of Parks and Rec finds its enjoyment in featuring some characters that rarely get to take the spotlight. The lead story of the week, and the origin of the episode's title, follows Ron and Leslie as she competes for Jamm's vote on a city council measure to defund the subsidies of the local mini-golf course. I'm always up for more Jamm, but the story seems tired this late in the game for the show.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 18 - Animal Control
A weak episode story wise for Parks & Rec is saved by some excellent character moments sprinkled throughout the entire episode. Ron is the highlight of the episode this week as he gets sick and Anne forces him to go to the hospital. His girlfriend's kids got him sick during a viewing of Finding Nemo and his reaction to sickness is as expected. Just because we expect him to fight going to a doctor doesn't mean it isn't going to be hilarious to watch and Nick Offerman doesn't disappoint.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 17 - Partridge
Parks & Rec returns for its final run of episodes this season and its first episode is pretty great at bringing the funny. The A story of the week has got to be the lawsuit of Jamm vs. Swanson. If you don't remember, Ron punched Councilman Jamm to the ground after he tried to interfere with Ben and Leslie's wedding and he is now suing Ron for $46 million. Andy, Tom and April are all brought in as witnesses and a pair of them have a little trouble with the truth.
Usher Pays A Visit To Pawnee To Promote The Voice With Parks And Recreation Characters
The swiveling red chair is back in Pawnee, and just in time for The Voice's return and the arrival of the two new coaches set to be featured in the NBC singing competition. Last spring, Ron Swanson added the iconic swiveling chair to his office for a bit of Parks and Recreation/The Voice cross promotion. This time around, The Voice's new mentor Usher has arrived at the Pawnee parks and recreation department and he interacts with some of the characters, while they play around in his new chair.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 16 - Bailout
Chris gets a welcome spotlight this week as he has to make the final decision on whether or not he will be a surrogate father to Annís baby. He might turn out to be more that just a sperm donor though as Chris seems to want an active role in the child's life. Ben suggests he guide Tom, one of the shows child like adults, to see how parenting might be and the results are a mixed bag.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 15 - Correspondent's Lunch
The potential of a post wedding drop off for Parks & Rec shows no sign of life here in the first episode after the big event. The show does seem like it is hitting the reset button in a number of areas after the previous episodes finality, but it mostly gets off on the right foot. Anne is going after her sperm donor, Ben has a new job with Sweetums' new charitable foundation and Andy is lost after his dreams of police work have been dashed forever.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 14 - Leslie And Ben
Ben and Leslie decide to get married and I can't imagine it being much better than this. Last week's episode ended on a cliffhanger of sorts with Ben proposing to Leslie that they get married at the end of the gala that just secured themva park on the abandoned lot. Everyone is game, but it's never that easy on Parks & Rec, but it ultimately works out for the best.
Parks and Recreation Watch: Season 5, Episode 13 - Emergency Response
Parks & Rec has one of the best episodes of the season and winds up in an unexpected place I didn't expect until the season finale. Jamm gets another one up on Leslie at the latest council meeting, but the biggest thing holding her and her park back is a funding gap. Leslie's idea to fill said gap is a good one, black tie gala, but Jamm pulls another fast one on Knope by calling in the Indiana Emergency Response team to perform a test of the city's preparedness.
The Office, Community And Parks And Rec Promo: Love And Halloween Are In The Air
When exactly did Andy become Michael Scott? Tonight's episode might be the starting point of that, though it seems like we can trace his path toward Scott-ness further back than that. Regardless, judging by the promo for this evening's episode, it looks like he might be about to make a very Michael-ish move. The promo also gives us a quick glimpse of Parks and Recreation and Community.
