Parks and Recreation -- Season Finale -- "Win, Lose or Draw" -- 5/10/12

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
By djariya at 2011-09-22

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
IT'S ELECTION NIGHT IN PAWNEE -- PAUL RUDD ("KNOCKED UP") AND KATHRYN HAHN ("STEP BROTHERS") GUEST STAR. It's election day in Pawnee, and Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd) are separated by a razor-thin margin. While everyone waits with Leslie for the race to be called, they ponder their futures, and their new opportunities. Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Jim O'Heir and Retta also star.


Episode 22 of 22

As I mentioned here before the show went on break. The Producers shot 2 endings for the Finale:

Spoiler:
Leslie wins and Leslie loses.


No one knows what ending they plan to use.

"I didn't write one."

What a line.

And we freeze-framed Andy and Aprils places to live. Highlights included Winterfell, Moon, and Key Largo, Montego, Cocomo.

Amazing finale. This was as hilarious and full of heart as classic Office.

Real bummer that next season is its last.

Is that official? I thought it hadn't even been officially renewed.

If it's not reported by Deadline, Hollywood Reporter or EW.com, chances are it's bullshit or purely speculation.

That was a good line!

Also on the "places to live" list was New Caprica.

After tonight...I'm even more upset by this ending. Tonights episode was fantastic and they seriously have some of the best characters on TV. The last 2 years have been extrememly exceptional without a bad episode. If any comedy could be their staple MUST SEE TV, this should be it. And its a really fuckin shame its not. It should get a full season.

Dammit Jerry!

Hoping they pull more than a 13 episode season--would love to see Burt Macklin, Pawnee PD.

Good episode. Happy to see Leslie win. The interview with EW.com and people on the show said they specifically researched Indiana laws to determine whether Leslie could keep her current job and also be on the city council at the same time. And she can! So that will most likely be part of the plot next season.

My wife and I roared at that. Also the "Dammit Jerry!" as the last line of the season.

I was happy that Leslie won. I also love Jerry bashing.

Sad this is the finale. For a comedy it got emotional when it looked like Leslie might lose.

Wished I could join the party at the end.

Best show of the season.

No mention of how many episodes, but Aziz Ansari just posted this on Twitter.

It's all good Twitterville. Parks and Rec is returning for Season 5! Still no word on Perfect Strangers though

I enjoy how unpredictable the show is. Really could have went either way.
