Parks and Recreation
September 19, 2012
Recently, when bored one Sunday night, I was stumbling through Netflix, and I found a television show: Parks and Recreation. I had heard many good things about the show, but had no idea what I was in for.
The plot of the show revolves around the Parks Department of Pawnee, Indiana. Inside the Parks Department, you encounter many interesting characters, including Leslie Knope (played by Amy Poehler), the Deputy Parks Director. The show follows Leslie and the whole Parks Department team while they deal with the bureaucracy of the local government. The team is composed of many hilarious and unforgettable characters including a libertarian who doesn’t believe in government input and a sarcastic intern.
I assure you, the show is much funnier than it might sound. After watching the first episode, I was hooked. I managed to power through all four seasons of the show in less than a week. If you would like to give Parks and Recreation a try, MCPL owns the first three seasons and a companion book written by Leslie.
