Parks and Recreation -- "The Possum" -- 03/11/10

Some great stuff in this episode.

Tom running when he saw the Possum
His loving of the clothes people wear golfing.

Nice to see Ron Swanson's mancave! Awesome shop he has.

I think this show is starting to lose me a little bit. It took me a long time to warm to the Swanson, but I get it now. Tom was always the best part for me. I love that they finally gave Chris Pratt's character something to do this season. The cast and a lot of the funny stuff works, but there just isn't enough glue holding it all together. It's a workplace comedy, but the workplace is so forgettable that it doesn't ground the show in anything.

On a casting note, Paul may be leaving the show. Also, I must have missed the additions of Rob Lowe and Adam Scott to the cast.

Nick Offerman in real life is a carpenter.

I suspected he wouldn't be around long in this show. He's the level-headed guy in the show and he seems to have less to do this season since they killed Leslie's infatuation with him (thankfully). He seems to be getting good supporting roles in films, so I would think he'd rather continue with that.

Adam Scott is great at playing creepy guys or assholes. He could be good, as long as they play to his strengths.

Rob Lowe - I have no desire to see him in anything. If he's in, I hope it's only for a few episodes.

Good riddance, the Mark Brendanawicz character is the weak link. Is it too soon for them to get rid of Rob Lowe?

As we only got a glimpse of this in the show, I'm so glad that it was posted online:

I am loving this show more and more: April's crush, Andy's tackling of the possum, Tom running...all comedic genius!

But I just love hearing the characters say the name Mark Brendanawicz.

LOL, me too! I hope he doesn't leave. The show needs at least one grounded character for the others to bounce off of.

Agreed on all, although I'm willing to give the writers a chance to take Rob Lowe somewhere.
