Parks and Recreation is an American comedy television series. It was co-created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, part of the creative team on the NBC version of The Office. The series follows Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), the deputy director of the Parks and Recreation department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.[1] Knope takes on a project with a nurse named Ann to turn an abandoned construction pit into a park, while trying to navigate her way through the politics of local government.

Despite initial speculation it would be a spin-off of The Office, the two programs are not related beyond using the same mockumentary style and one of the same actors.

On January 29, 2010, Parks and Recreation was renewed for a third season.[2]

Synopsis

The series follows the ambitions of perennially upbeat mid-level bureaucrat Leslie Knope, on her quest to better the town of Pawnee, Indiana. As deputy director of the city's Parks and Recreation Department, her sense of enthusiasm is rarely shared by her unmotivated colleagues, who include the wisecracking Tom, placid city planner Mark Brendanawicz, deadpan department head Ron Swanson, and his droll assistant April Ludgate. Leslie's newly found best friend is a local nurse Ann Perkins, whom she meets when Ann's immature boyfriend Andy Dwyer tumbles into a large pit near their house. Bessie takes on the quest to turn the pit into a park, which becomes her ultimate personal project. However, she finds herself repeatedly frustrated by bureaucrats and townspeople who stand in her way. While the pit-park storyline occupied the show's first season, the pit was filled in during second season, and the plot gradually began to explore Leslie's other projects and personal issues, including a fledgling romance. The second season also focuses on the personal lives of all of the Parks Department employees, as well as Ann's new romance with Mark and April's affections for Ann's ex-boyfriend, Andy.

Characters

Beginning with season two, one character, who was credited as a guest star during season one, received star billing:

  • Chris Pratt as Andy Dwyer, Ann Perkins' former boyfriend, an unsuccessful musician, and a Shoe-Shiner at Pawnee City Hall.

Episodes

Production

Principal photography began on February 18, 2009.[3] Dean Holland, Emmy-winning editor from The Office, works on Parks and Recreation.[4]

A group of people stand in an office-style room in front of a table with documents and booklets. From left to right stand a man with arms crossed wearing a black shirt, a man wearing a gray suit and green tie with his arms behind his back, a woman in a gray suitcoat and red shirt, a woman with a gray jacket and purple shirt, a man with arms crossed wearing a tan suit, a young girl wearing a blue blouise and gray shirt and a seated man wearing a white T-shirt with red sleeves.
The main cast of Parks and Recreation included (from left to right), Paul Schneider, Aziz Ansari, Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza. Guest star Chris Pratt (far right) made guest appearances in every first season episode.

The style of cinematography is consistent with that of The Office. The mockumentary style is seen in several ways. Any music featured on the show is strictly diegetic, meaning that the music is never used as part of the score, but rather it is only presented in the context of boom boxes, CD players, etc. Characters have one-on-one time with the camera crew for The Office style confessionals. This is most frequently seen with Leslie and Ron. Characters also modify their reactions to certain events and dialogues to remain consistent with the mockumentary format. For example, in the episode "Boys' Club", Ann is embarrassed by a comment that Andy makes about sex because she doesn't want the camera crew to hear it. One way that the format of the show differs slightly from The Office is that, unlike early episodes of The Office, the crew of Parks and Recreation follows the cast more closely than the The Office crew did. They also seem to have less of an ability to hear through walls and doors than the crew for The Office does although in "Boys' Club" they are able to hear what is being said in the courtyard through Leslie's window.

Most of the City Hall scenes are filmed at Pasadena City Hall in Pasadena, California. The show's logo is based on a design rejected by the City of Fort Collins.[5] Instead, the City used a similar logo with left swooping shape replaced with the outline of Fort Collins' famous landmark, Horsetooth Mountain.

The show's musical theme was written by Gaby Moreno and Vincent Jones.[6]   Michael Schur said of the opening credits, "It does a really good job of explaining what the town is like. (The) credits do a really good job of establishing it's just sort of a normal, every-day town in the middle of the country."[7]

Reception

Critical reception

The series debut was met with mixed reviews from critics.[8] Entertainment Weekly praised the series, stating, "While I laughed out loud only a few times during Parks' pilot, I dug the performances, the attitude, and the atmosphere that's being created. One would be foolish to underestimate the series this early on."[9] Metacritic assigned a rating of 59/100 based on 25 reviews.[10] A less favorable review from Robert Bianco of USA Today said that the show "never expends enough energy to even approach funny".[11] Jonathan Storm of The Philadelphia Inquirer dismissed the series, saying, "Parks and Recreation emerges a miscast mess".[12]

Because the show was created by some of the same team and filmed in the same mockumentary style, many anticipated 'Parks' to be a spinoff of NBC's hit show The Office. In its review of the show, New York Times called it an "outdoor version of an indoor comedy".[13] Linsa Stasi of The New York Post attempts to prove it's the "same show simply transported" claiming the two shows have "the same sitcom set-up, the same self-congratulatory, hipster style and an identical lead character".[14] Daniel Carlson of the Hollywood Reporter contradicts these claims stating that while the show "bears stylistic similarities to 'Office'", it "has a heart and mind all its own".[15]

One fairly consistent source of praise goes to Saturday Night Live star Amy Poehler for her performance as lead character Bessie Higgenbottom. Bessie has a bubbly personality and undying enthusiasm which is very much incongruent with her surroundings: a dull office with bored employees in a seemingly insignificant town. Tom Shales of The Washington Post prescribes that "Poehler's show unfortunately isn't worthy of her".[16] Daniel Carlson of the Hollywood Reporter also had praise for Poehler claiming that she "has the comic intelligence to carry a series like this one" and delivers a performance that is "awkward but not alienating" and "eager without being repelling".[17]

Reviews grew from mixed to more positive during the second season. James Poniewozik of Time magazine praised the development of the characters. He thought that the show has a "handle now" on the main character Bessie Higgenbottom, and does an "excellent job of finding things for its supporting characters". He also opined that the series is "living up to its potential now".[18] Tim Goodman of the San Francisco Chronicle commented that Parks and Recreation is "finding its comedic mojo" this current second season and added that the show is "here to prove there is such a thing as creative comebacks".[19] IGN gave the show the award for Best Comedy Show of 2009, beating out Curb Your Enthusiasm, Modern Family, and 30 Rock, saying, "Last Spring, we talked about how much potential Parks had. Well, not only did Parks quickly come into its own, but it became the shining beacon of NBC's Thursday night lineup."

In fact, the cinderella first year was capped when P&R landed on over 20 "Best of 2009", "top 10" and "breakout" lists[20] including:

– GQ Sitcom of the Year[21] – New York Times[22] – TIME's Top 10 TV Series of 2009[23] – Los Angeles Times' Best TV Shows of 2009 – Los Angeles Times' Top 10 Good Things About TV in 2009[24] – People Magazine's Top 10 Shows – Entertainment Weekly's 2009's Breakout TV Stars – Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker's Top 20 TV Shows of 2009[25] – New York Magazine's Killer Dads and Family Comedies: The Best TV of 2009 – San Francisco Chronicle's Season's Top Comedies – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Best of 2009 – Newark Star-Ledger's Best of 2009

Season 1

Pilot [1.1]

Leslie: I don't like obscenities just as much as you don't like them.
Man: No, it drives me crazy. I have kids.
Leslie: Right, but, uh...
Man: I got my little three-year old and I'm going through the park, and someone's like "Hey, [bleep] my [bleep]!" Other guy's like, "You [bleep] my [bleep], you [bleep]head!"

Ron: I've been quite open about this around the office: I don't want this parks department to build any parks because I don't believe in government. I think that all government is a waste of taxpayer money. My dream is to have the park system privatized and run entirely for profit by corporations, like Chuck E. Cheese. They have an impeccable business model. I would rather work for Chuck E. Cheese.

Canvassing [1.2]

Man: Park, huh? Sounds like a really good idea.
Mark: Great. Would you be willing to come to a town meeting and show your support?
Man: Absolutely. Now is this park gonna have a playground or maybe a pool for the kids?
Mark: Oh, how old are your kids?
Man: No kids.
Tom: Uh-oh.
April: I'm gonna put him down as a "yes."
Mark: Don't do that.
Man: Also, is the park gonna be at least a thousand feet from my house? Because, y'know, I really can't move again.
Mark: April, please stand behind me.

Lawrence: Hey park lady! You suck.
Leslie: Hear that? He called me park lady.

The Reporter [1.3]

Leslie: The Tucker Park Graffiti Removal Project was a great idea that just ran out of steam. We had removed five cartoon penises - not even 10% - when we were shut down due to lack of funding. To this day, I am haunted by those remaining penises. One penis is particular...

Ron: Tommy boy. Lemme tell you something, Tom: you suck at Scrabble.
Tom: I know. You're destroying me.
Ron: You're worse than my ex-wife and she's terrible at Scrabble. [looks at camera] And she's a bitch.
Tom: Look out, man, I'm gonna get you one of these days. I'm practicing.
Ron: Yeah, I doubt that. [looks at camera] Her name is Tammy Swanson and she's a serious bitch.

Boys' Club [1.4]

Tom: When you're in government, there's a million ways to exploit your power. Have I ever given into that temptation? No. Never. I'm not that kind of politician.
[cut to Tom cutting in front of the line at a hot dog cart]
Tom: Official Parks and Rec business. Just need to grab a quick hot dog. [turns to girl behind him] Sorry about that, little girl. You can get the next one.

Ron: My idea of a perfect government is one guy who sits in a small room at a desk, and the only thing he's allowed to decide is who to nuke. The man is chosen based on some kind of IQ test, and maybe also a physical tournament, like a decathlon. And women are brought to him, maybe...when he desires them.

The Banquet [1.5]

Leslie: In a town as old as Pawnee, there's a lot of history in every acre. This wooded area is the sight of, um, the murder, actually, of Nathaniel Bixby Mark. He was a pioneer who was killed by a tribe of Wamapoke Indians after he traded them a baby for what is now Indianapolis. They cut his face off...and they made it into a dreamcatcher. And they made his legs into rainsticks. And that's the great thing about indians back then - they used every part of the pioneer.

Ann: Am I the only [beep]ing person here who doesn't know Jeanine Restrepo?

Rock Show [1.6]

Andy: The band has had a few different names over the years. When we started, we were Teddy Bear Suicide, but then we changed it to Mouse Rat. Then we were God Hates Figs, Department of Homeland Obscurity, Flames for Flames, Muscle Confusion, Nothing Rhymes With Orange, then Everything Rhymes With Orange, Punch Face Champions, Rad Wagon, Puppy Pendulum, Possum Pendulum, Penis Pendulum, Handrail Suicide, Angel Snack, Just the Tip, Threeskin... [long pause] Oh, Jet Black Pope. We went back to Mouse Rat, and now we are Scarecrow Boat. God, when I hear myself say Scarecrow Boat out loud I kinda hate it...

[Mark goes up to Ron]
Mark: Hey Parks Department.
Ron: Hey Mark, this is Beth, my ex-wife Tammy's better looking sister.
Beth: Nice to meet you.
Mark: Nice to meet you. You guys are together?
Ron: Yep. My ex-wife Tammy cheated on me, then we divorced, then last week I ran into her sister Beth here, turns out she hates Tammy too, so we started dating. It's like a fairy tale.
Beth: Tammy stinks.
[Mark goes up to Tom]
Tom: Brendanawicz!
Mark: Hey Tom.
Tom: Hey, I want you to meet my wife.
Wendy: Hi, I'm Wendy Haverford.
Mark: [shocked because Wendy is attractive] Hi. You're...Tom's wife?
Wendy: Don't hold it against me.
Tom: Look at how hot she is! Isn't that crazy? And she's a surgeon! She makes a ton of money! BAM!
[Mark goes up to April]
April: This is Derek.
Mark: Cool. How long you guys been dating?
April: We're just friends. He's like the gayest person I've ever met, but I make out with him when I'm drunk sometimes.
Mark: If you don't want to talk to me, you can just say so.
April: I don't want to talk to you.

Season 2

Pawnee Zoo [2.1]

Leslie: Do you think that marrying penguins made some kind of statement?
Tom: Yes. The statement was that you're very lonely and you need a pet.

April: This is my boyfriend, Derek, and this is Derek's boyfriend, Ben.
Ben: Hey.
Leslie: Hey...oh...wait, sorry. What's the situation?
April: What do you mean?
Leslie: How does this work?
April: Derek is gay but he's straight for me, but he's gay for Ben, and Ben's really gay for Derek. And I hate Ben.
Derek: It's not that complicated.

The Stakeout [2.2]

Ann: When Andy and I used to go the movies, he would always try to guess the ending of the movie. And he would always guess that the main character had been dead the whole time. Even when we saw Ratatouille.

Dave: I like Ms. Knope. I liked her. I got to say when I first met her I didn't care much for her because like 99% of the people on any given day of my life she was very belligerent and disagreeable. Ms. Knope was attractive to me. As a man, I was attracted to her in her demeanor. I was attracted to her in a sexual manner that was appropriate. ...I don't want to talk about this anymore.

Beauty Pageant [2.3]

Tom: I had to call in a few favors. But if you don't call in favors to look at women in bikinis and assign them numerical grades, what the hell do you call in favors for?

Leslie: What you doing in these parts?
Dave: Oh, I just, uh, I came by to see the murals. This one is pretty amazing.
Leslie: Yeah, this one's a beauty. You know, in the 1880's, there were a few years that were pretty rough and tumble in Pawnee. This depicts kind of a famous fight between Reverend Bradley and Annabeth Stevenson, a widowed mother of seven. The original title of this was "A Lively Fisting." But y'know, they had to change it for...obvious reasons.
Dave: She's got him by the hair pretty good there.
Leslie: Yeah.

Practice Date [2.4]

Jerry: Hey, Mark, um, a little birdie told me that you have one unpaid parking ticket.
Mark: That's funny, because a little birdie told me that your adoptive mother was arrested for marijuana possession.
Donna: Oh snap!
Jerry: What?
Mark: You didn't know that, huh?
Jerry: ...I didn't know I was adopted...
Mark: Oh no. Oh Jerry, oh Jerry, I'm so sorry...

Leslie: What if he shows up with another woman? What if one of my sleeves catches on fire and it spreads rapidly? What if instead of Tic-Tacs I accidentally pop a couple of Ambien and I have to keep punching my leg to stay awake?
Ann: Those are all insane hypotheticals and I promise you they won't happen.
Leslie: They have happened. All of these have happened to me.
[cut to Leslie being interviewed]
Leslie: Uh, no, there's more. One time I accidentally drank an entire bottle of vinegar. I thought it was terrible wine. Once I went out with a guy who wore 3-D glasses the entire evening. Oh, one time I rode in a sidecar on a guy's motorcycle, and the sidecar detached and went down a flight of stairs. Another time I went to a really boring movie with a guy and while I was alseep he tried to pull out one of my teeth. I literaly woke up with his hand in my mouth. We went out a couple times after that but then he got weird.

Sister City [2.5]

Leslie: Now I know you gentlemen had a long flight, but I have prepared a welcome party in your honor.
Raul: Excellent. I like to party.
Leslie: Well my job is to see to your every need.
Elvis: We just, uh, select the woman we desire? [points to Donna] I will take the large black one.
Tom: Interesting choice.
Leslie: What?
Raul: Do you have some kind of a book with photos of the women available to us? If not, I will also take the sexy black one.
[Cut to Donna being interviewed]
Donnna: I am not surprised at all. I have been to South America. I did very well there.

Raul: This is outrageous. Where are the armed men who come in to take the protestors away? Where are they? This kind of behavior is never tolerated in Baracua. You shout like that they put you in jail. Right away. No trial, no nothing. Journalists, we have a special jail for journalists. You are stealing: right to jail. You are playing music too loud: right to jail, right away. Driving too fast: jail. Slow: jail. You are charging too high prices for sweaters, glasses: you right to jail. You undercook fish? Believe it or not, jail. You overcook chicken, also jail. Undercook, overcook. You make an appointment with the dentist and you don't show up, believe it or not, jail, right away. We have the best patients in the world because of jail.

Kaboom [2.6]

Ron: Are you high?
Leslie: I'm high on Kaboom. "Don't ask for permission, ask for forgiveness."
Ron: That's right, you never did ask me for permission, did you? Well, I'm sorry to burst your ka-bubble, but I just had my ass ka-handed to me by the city manager, and now this entire department is ka-screwed.
Leslie: Ron, I am so, so, so sorry.
Ron: What the ka-[bleep] were you thinking?

Ron: I would prefer that she ask me for my permission so I could say no. I like saying no. It lowers their enthusiasm. [smiles contently]

Leslie: Well, you can relax. All I'm going to do is go in and just say, "We're so sorry. It's entirely our fault."
Scott: No, no, no. You can't say any of that. It admits liability. You can't say "I'm sorry" or "I apologize." It implies guilt.
Leslie: That's insane. I have to apologize. Andy was a victim...
Scott: You can't say "victim".
Leslie: ...in an extremely unfortunate situation.
Scott: Can't say "unfortunate" and you can't say "situation".
Leslie: I can't say the word "situation"?
Scott: No. It implies there was a situation.
Leslie: Can I give him the pig?
Scott: [pause] Yeah. Pig's fine.

Greg Pikitis [2.7]

April: I passed up a gay Halloween party to be here. Do you know how much fun gay Halloween parties are? Last year I saw three Jonas Brothers make out with three Robert Pattinsons. It was amazing.

Greg: Are you crying?
Andy: I AM NOT CRYING, OK? I'M ALLERGIC TO JERKS!

Ron and Tammy [2.8]

Tom: I have never taken the high road. But I tell other people to 'cause then there's more room for me on the low road.

Ron: We didn't talk. We made love.
Leslie: Oh my. Mm. Good. Oh well, spare me the details. I'm just happy-
Ron: It was so intense, I didn't know where my flesh stopped and hers began. You know what I mean?
Leslie: Yeah...
Ron: Our marriage was always a complete disaster, but we did have...that. The two of us. It's like doing peyote and sneezing slowly for six hours.
Leslie: This seems like a private matter, but I'm-
Ron: That woman really knows her way around a penis.

The Camel [2.9]

Jerry: For my murinal, I was inspired by the death of my grandma-
Tom: You said "murinal!"
[Everyone laughs]
Jerry: No, I didn't.
Ann: Yes, you did. You said "murinal." I heard it.
Jerry: Anyway, she-
April: Jerry, why don't you put that murinal in the men's room so people can murinate all over it?
Tom: Jerry, go to the doctor. You might have a murinary tract infection.
[Jerry takes down his mural and walks away defeated]
Jerry: ...Just wanted to show you my art...
Everyone: Murinal! Murinal! Murinal!
Leslie: Disqualified!
[cut to Jerry being interviewed]
Jerry: It's Pointillism. And each dot is a photo of the citizen of the town-
Tom: [from other room] No one cares! At all!

Leslie: Yes, we are a team, but I am the team leader. So I made a bold decision: we're playing it safe.

Hunting Trip [2.10]

Tom: On a scale from one to Chris Brown, how pissed off is he?

Leslie: I think this is gonna be a really good bonding experience with Ron. Guys love it when you can show them you're better than they are at something they love.

Tom's Divorce [2.11]

Leslie: We are going to The Glitter Factory.
Tom: What?
Donna: Not me. I can't go back there. But if you see Jasmine, tell her she can keep Anfernee but I want my microwave back.

Ron: Now that you're getting divorced, I sort of feel like there may be some potential with me and Wendy. Would it be okay with you if I asked her out once the fake dust settles?
Tom: Yeah. Why not? Sure.
Ron: Looking at her, I feel like she might be the perfect spooning size for me. I'm gonna take a leak.

Christmas Scandal [2.13]

Bill Dexhart: Well, based on that skit, I know you've heard about the new scandal that's about to break. Who told you? Was it the babysitter? Was it the nurse who delivered our love child?
Leslie: What?
Bill Dexhart: Stop playing dumb. You know damn well what happened. I got the babysitter pregnant. And when she was in the delivery room I had sex with not one, but four nurses in a supply closet...as well as a woman whose husband was getting a liver transplant. Hmm...Now which one of them told you? Was it the liver lady?
Leslie: Wh...I...No one...I haven't...I haven't heard any of this. Ever. In my whole life.
