Parks and Recreation -- "Galentine's Day" -- 02/11/10

Parks and Recreation

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Leslie's mom (Pamela Reed) shares a story about an old flame (John Larroquette), which inspires Leslie and Justin to track him down and reunite the long-lost lovers on Valentine's Day. Elsewhere, Andy's band lands a gig at the Senior Center.


And no, the episode title is not a typo even though G is close to V.

Another great episode in a fantastic season. The improvement from those first episodes still amazes me.

Very well-done Valentine's Day episode. It was cute, romantic, and funny. I felt for Tom this episode. I liked how after she questioned his plan he confidently said yes, it was his plan. Got a kick out of Ron denying he was his singer persona and the crushed look on the old lady's face.

I'm glad they got rid of what's-his-face as Leslie's boyfriend. Hopefully Louis CK can appear at some point in the future. It was great how he treated Tom like a child of divorce at the end though, and April's look was classic.

I think a big part of why this season has been so great is Andy. They transformed him from a selfish, unlikeable doof into a genuinely likable guy. Having Andy and April as a potential couple has made for some of the best moments in the show too. It's nice to see her growing as a person as well and ditching her lame boyfriends.

Jerry being the department whipping boy continues to work very well

I'm loving this show, its my 1st one to watch on Thursdays the others I can leave sit, I watch Survivor, but of the comedies this is it.

I love Tom, Love Ron, and think April is hilarious! Her looks with her eyes are genius!

Ron was great for Leslie in the end there, and I especially liked the 2 ladies asking for Duke Silver's autograph!

I don't know if it was a shtick, but the girl playing April was interviewed on 'Attack of the Show' last week, and in real life, she was basically the same character

Ron Swanson's mustache deserves an Emmy

I thought I felt a connection between Ron & Leslie growing the past few episodes. Also is Amy pregnant in real life or was that a bad dress.

"This story makes The Notebook look like Saw V". Great episode - Andy was rocking it. Chris Pratt has become a real scene stealer. I like that April has softened a bit and started to fall for Andy's charms, it makes her more endearing IMO. "That's the old lady equivalent of flashing!"

Speaking of Duke Silver, I just found this: http://www.dukesilver.com. The site's better than some I've seen for real musicians.

Awesome episode again. I really like Rashida Jones now too...was never a fan of her as Karen. Plus she looked bangin' hot in that little black dress at the V-day dance.

This show is amazing and I loved this ep. It's one of the few shows where I'll watch eps more than once.

At first I hated April but has become one of my faves.
