Parks and Recreation -- "The Flu" -- 1/27/11

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
The flu hits Pawnee, sending Leslie to the hospital and interrupting her preparations for the local Harvest Festival. Elsewhere, Ron and Andy do some male bonding, while Tom spends the day at the spa.


Episode 2 of 16*

* It confirmed by one of the Executive Producers of the show that season 3 is indeed only 16 episodes. I read it on Zap2it.com.

Anyways, looking forward to it.

Heard really good things about this episode tonight. Poelher and Lowe are supposed to be really good at the physical comedy. Peolher in a Lucille Ball kind of a way. Cant wait to see it.

Ron's look at the camera after Andy showed him the super straw was great.

Leslie: "If I was sick could I do this?"
Anne: "Do what?"
Leslie: "Cartwheels."
Anne: "You're not...doing cartwheels..."
Leslie: "I'm not?"

Andy: I typed your symptoms in and it said you might have network connectivity problems.

Yeah, they showed that one on the promos so much, but it was still pretty funny when it actually happened in the episode.

I loved how giddy Andy was sitting in the chair drinking from the super straw.

The looks that Ron keeps giving the cameras are hysterical!

Andy: "What? I knew it! No, I didn't know it."

Teaming Ron and Andy up is genius.

---

I like that Tom was actually able to get some things done his own way.

---

Leslie delivering the speech perfectly really caught me off guard. I couldn't stop laughing.

Leslie: "Give it up everyone for Scott Bakula from Quantum Leap."

The stuff Andy said in April's hospital room was great, especially committing to stay there until she woke up and then immediately deciding it could be a while and he'd come back in a little bit. I like that they don't seem like they're going to drag out the "will they, won't they" for too long with April and Andy.

I'm really liking Ben as well, he's funny and a great match for Leslie.

Wow, I expected a lot more. Still a good episode, but not nearly what I was expecting.

"Stop pooping!"

I was wary when they first announced Rob Lowe would be joining the cast last season, but he is fitting in perfectly.

She was especially good at rubbing boogers on the office equipment.


"I did not know what to buy so I got you magazines and lipstick"


Andy did a good Reggie Wayne impression and likewise for Ron and his Peyton moves lol.

"The less I know about other people's affairs, the happier I am. I'm not interested in caring about people. I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes."

Man, this is such a funny show. So glad it is finally back. The above is one of the quotes I came on to post...definitely a LOL moment for me. I also am enjoy Rob Lowe. Loved him looking in the mirror trying to force his body to stop pooping. Everything about this episode was just plain funny.

Yeah they've been running that promo for weeks now, it's a good line but the ad took the fun out of it.

yeah, they seemed to have switched focus from Tom to him. Ron is still great, but Andy seems to get the best lines.

It was always a tie between Ron and Andy for me. As far as likeability, Andy wins hands down.

I'm far more impressed with what they've done with Andy though. At first, he was totally self-centered and seemed to add very little to the show. In fact, I'd argue that he sort of weighed the show down at first. But the little retooling they did with him in between Seasons 1 and 2, along with Chris Pratt's excellent performance and knack for physical comedy, has made him into one of the show's breakout characters for me.

I forget which episode it was, but there was a specific episode last season that I posted in the thread here proclaiming that Andy was now one of my favorite characters on television. I wish I could remember which episode that was though.

I just found it! This is from the 10/29/09 "Greg Piktis" episode:
