A lot of great stuff happened in 2015. Star Wars is back (and pretty cool again), James Bond returned, Fargo was better than ever … choosing only 15 great things from the year wasn’t the easiest task in the world. But when one decides to write about 15 – and only 15 – great
This week it’s just Dan and Mal on board but fear not as the boys have plenty to talk about, bringing Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 and The Broken Circle Breakdown to the table for review. Opinions on the new Hobbit film are also thrown about, take cover!
Parks and Recreation finishes strong with a return from Burt Macklin and cameos by beloved guest stars.
My biggest problem with Parks and Recreation’s “Animal Control” episode is it’s heavy plot. Read more to find out why.
Parks and Recreation is on a streak of poorly named episodes. It’s at least two, maybe three, I haven’t decided on “Two Parties” yet. It’s functional, yet boring. Be that as it may, Thursday’s episode, “Ann’s Decision,” is a major improvement on last week. The episode opens with Ron ordering a
Poor Chris. He finds out his relationship status at the same time as the rest of Pawnee, and he probably secretly wishes that “in a personal relationship with” means “in love.” I said last week that he’s in store for a legitimate relationship (because establishing long-term romantic relationships seems to
Ken Hotate (Jonathan Joss), leader of the fictional Wamapoke Tribe, is back in Pawnee to call everything racist and promote his casino with a giant neon sign…or just build a playground. That’s great too. Thursday’s episode of Parks and Recreation, “Two Parties,” is much more about Ben and Leslie’s bachelor and
One of the best things about television is the variety of content and subject matter that is available for consumption. It is so wide-reaching, there are so many channels, genres and series to choose from that pretty much anyone can find something they enjoy. Add to that options like Netflix and Hulu to get caught up on shows you may have missed or as an introduction to new series and there is no end to the possibilities for viewing enjoyment. As it turns out, television in 2012 is so varied that there was little to no agreement on any of our writers’ favorites.
*Spoilers* When we first met Diane earlier this season, it wasn’t quite clear how long she’d be around. And could Ron let enough of his “emotions” bubble to the surface to form any sort of chemistry with her? After Thursday’s episode, I think Diane will be around for a long
Thank the gods of television that Parks and Recreation isn’t a show about Leslie Knope turning the Pit behind Ann’s house into a park. Instead, the character development that has resulted in a caring April and a near-famous Ben Wyatt has stepped over the very thing that brought the office
Meet Ben Wyatt’s dad: “he’s terrifying,” and he will NOT entertain the possibility of having red vines instead of Twizzlers. Ben’s hysterical and incessant insistence that his parents despise each other seems like exagerration for comedic effect. It can’t be thaaaaat bad, right? Jonathan Banks guest stars as Ben’s dad in this
*Spoilers* First things first: does anyone else think in the picture above that Amy Poehler resembles Lucille Ball…a LOT? Ok. Moving on… I’m not sold on why television shows (especially sitcoms) are obligated to do an episode about Halloween. It’s limiting in nature and it’s been done about 700 times
*Spoilers* It seems that Pawnee, Indiana always mirrors real life, but with some exaggeration to make things hilarious. And it’s uncertain exactly how crucial Parks and Rec thinks sexually transmitted diseases among senior citizens is in our country. But seriously, it’s an issue apparently. Anyway, Tom Haverford does represent a more obvious
*Spoilers* Parks and Recreation was back Thursday night for its second episode of Season 5, and we can start to feel the separation between the characters. It’s worth wondering if plans are to soon reunite everybody in Pawnee, because the show’s title is “Parks and Recreation” and not “Washington D.C. Spinoff.”
*Spoilers* One of the funniest (if not the funniest) shows on television is back! And it is back with a whole lot of ideas that can make Season 5 the best one yet. So of course with the new season, comes a new project for Leslie Knope: she is going to clean
