Parks and Recreation --"Park Safety"-- 3.18.10

This ep.....

The ep was good, but all due respect to him...Samberg didn't really add anything to the ep. I did like the loud voice gags like the birds being scared off. But other than that...

All the stuff about Jerry was awesome and could have carried the ep on its own. It was good to see Mo Collins again.


--Ron's Self Defense class
--Anne falling for Andy again?
--The end with Jerry being cool with them making fun of him

this season just keeps getting better! i kinda had a feeling that the mugging wasnt gonna be real..they set it up too easily to show u how clumsy he is.

so are we gonna see anne vs april for andy?

and yea, i agree about samberg. his character wasnt anything special.

The cold opening for tonight's episode may have just been the best of the entire series.

Jerry's Presentation after he came back had me gasping for air.

Actress Natalie Morales is joining NBC's sophomore comedy "Parks and Recreation" as a recurring.

In at least two episodes, Morales will play Lucy, a smart, funny, cute and spunky busgirl at a bar in Pawnee, Indiana.

She is set to appear in the same episodes that will feature Rob Lowe and Adam Scott as guest stars.

Morales, who was a regular on the first season of USA's "White Collar,"

Ron's shlemiel/shlemazel bit - One of the writers must be a Taxi fan.

CreamyGoodness - I think you mean Laverne and Shirley.

Loved this episode because of Jerry. I'm wondering if regular fans of the show found it funnier because of Jerry's history (not being invited to Leslie's party, not wanting to participate in who can find the most dirt on each other and having the most dirt found on him, etc.).

Great Tom impersonation by Amy also.

Samberg didn't do much for me either, but everything else was golden.

"Scrotation marks"

I wonder if, at the end of the series, Jerry will, in some way, get the last laugh on everyone.

Dark, disturbing, but plausible. I like it.

Agreed that Samberg's character was unimaginative, but he still had some good lines. I liked how the only time he spoke quietly is when the news woman was coming on to him.

The April/Andy/Ann triangle is fun.

I was watching this episode with a friend who has the same voice immodulation problems as Sandberg's character, which made it difficult not to laugh really hard.

I did love when all the pigeons flew off.

also liking the presenter lady on TV, she was great.

This show is firing on all cylinders. Like seeing Aubrey jealous and fighting over Andy.

and the whole self defense class was full of win

Great episode! I was laughing for almost the whole show.
I'm not a big fan of Samberg, but I thought he was pretty good.
