Storyline

Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in an Indiana Parks and Recreation Department, hopes to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping local nurse Ann Perkins turn an abandoned construction site into a community park. However what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape and a myriad of other challenges. Leslie's colleague Tom Haverford, who delights in exploiting his position for personal gain, is as likely to undermine her efforts as to help her, while her boss, Ron Swanson, is adamantly opposed to government in any form, even though he's a bureaucrat himself.

Trivia

In season 4: episode 19, there's an Easter egg in councilman Pillner's office. To begin the scene, the camera holds on a framed napkin, with "Pillner for Pawnee" written on it. That's a reference to the show the actor of Larry Pillner starred in, The West Wing, in that the president in the series had a napkin framed that read "Bartlet for America." See more »

Goofs

Even if Pawnee went bankrupt there would be no precedent for the state to take over the city beyond its finances. Chris Tragaer could certainly direct its financial operations; however only elected officials could run the city and make the legal decisions for it. See more »

Really Good Stuff
28 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised at how many people wrote negative reviews of this show despite it being my most-looked forward comedy of the week, followed by the Office, Curb, Sunny in Phily, and the Peep Show - a great British comedy.

The characters are unique and the comedy comes mostly from subtleties such as intonations, gestures, and camera glances. It's high-end comedic stuff in my opinion. Though Arrested Development was untouchable in this regard. Boy AD was good.

I suppose if you like trite predicable comedy, you wouldn't see it as funny, but the thing about this show is that's it's also fun to watch, the characters are very charismatic on screen, I think the casting was great. Is this 10 lines yet IMDb?

A really great show.
