Parks and Recreation -- "Sweetums" -- 02/04/10

Parks and Recreation

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Leslie fights to stop a local company from selling unhealthy energy bars at the parks in Pawnee. Meanwhile, Mark reluctantly agrees to help Tom move.


Can't wait! Now that the show was renewed for a 3rd season already, I can relax about it's future.

Corn is a fruit and syrup comes from bushes! The public forum was hilarious.

I don't know how more people aren't talking about this show. Every week is another fantastic episode. It's gotten so much better since the first season.

I think a big problem is the first season was so mediocre and so Office-lite that a lot of people wrote it off already. Too bad, since this show is now vastly superior to The Office, imo.

DJ Roomba! The episodes keep getting better and better each week. I hate to say it, but it's about to pass The Office in laughs each episode.

Fantastic episode. 1st episode I've seen "live" since season 1. I've been catching up ever since and I've noticed the show getting better.

Best show of the night (again). Ron looking under his chair for a bag of candy and DJ Roomba.

This show is on fucking FIRE. Loved the intro with Tom trying out his different looks while Justin was there... the 'What's Crackin'" belt buckle was fucking hilarious... and DJ Roomba was one of the best things I've ever seen. "Black Eyed Peas on an endless loop!"

Each episode gets better and and better. This show pretty much buries the office every week at this point. Dj roomba was just one of those outstanding and unexpected jokes this show has been so good at this season.

Usually I grow tired of Andy, but he was amazing this episode.

I wrote it off after two episodes. It's such a different show now, I'm only now getting back into it because I needed a sitcom fix during the holiday break so much that I decided to watch a few recent eps of Parks & Rec On Demand. For me, it started like Cougar Town in that there were too many obvious "hey this is the joke" moments that didn't land. Sadly, Cougar Town didn't change much. Same with The Middle and Community.

If only Modern Family were on NBC Thursdays instead of Community, it would bring back a solid night of comedy.

I can't get enough of this show. It's definitely topping the Office and 30 Rock for me. I like the characters more here.

Yeah, this show has been in the zone this season. Once they got away from the stupid pit storyline, things really clicked. Tom and Ron kill it every week. They've better incorporated Andy and Anne, and developed Jerry into a strong secondary character (that everyone shits on). Just a ton of fun.

I've had to rewatch the rave scene a few times. Just cracks me up every time...
