Is Season 3 really only 16 episodes? If so, I'm disappointed. I just watched the "Jerry's Painting" episode and it might have been the funniest 1/2 hour of television ever recorded. God I love this show.


Yeah. The show got midseason'd last year, which was a travesty. Which is why when it began showing new episodes in spring of this year, they were all from the previous fall. It was spring and we were just then getting episodes about the harvest festival they put on, which was a really odd sensation at the time.

I thought that was a great episode for Chris, actively applying his boundless energy into trying to weed out government corruption.

Gary Gergich. Poor guy.

That episode was good, but if we're talking perfection, make mine the second act of snork juice in da club....

Ann and Leslie's awesome "no offense" fight. Tom at his most desperate and elephant-like. *Literally* the greatest "your mother's butt" joke of all time. K-razzy Ron in the building. Chris and the Mayor of Whoreville. Jean Ralphio at his most de-LOY-shus.

All it was missing was Joe from Sewage and his van out back.

They got the "live ammo" line in there. It didn't add as much as the napkin, IMO.

I think the best part of the episode was Andy in the background of a shot, playing with and being bewildered by a stuffed animal that he took to be a live dog/cat.

I really hope that's not the end of the show. I teared up near the end of the episode because it damn well felt like it.

It's a pretty safe bet it will get renewed.

I was freakin' hoping the porn star would win the election. At least it was more likelier that Leslie would still keep her job.

I think they wrapped everything up nicely just in case. I'm pretty sure it'll get renewed (for a short order at the very least), but if it doesn't, I'll be satisfied with the way it ended.

I'm on a TV rampage today.

It sucks that they get rid of Ben NOW. Right before the show's about to duck out.

My dislike of the Ben character, or rather the idea that the show ever needed a Ben-type character (solid Leslie love interest), is well documented in this thread. (Sorry for ramblin posts, y'all.) The show would have been better served by staying in early Season 2 mode, let Leslie chase a few more crazy projects. Let us have more time to understand Pawnee. Give me more Greg Pikitis and Joe from Sewage.

This is the one show that could have stayed "original" by iterating on that idea of "Headstrong Leslie making Pawnee a better place one Pit-like project at a time." Instead, I guess they didn't want to repeat themselves, so they decided they needed to give Leslie a full-time love interest -- just like every other sitcom -- and needed to focus on one "project" (campaign) and one project only? WTF.

It's odd how sitcoms do that, there's something about success that makes sitcom writers want to add love interests and create this dramatic shift where the direction/identity of the sitcom revolves around a relationship. You would think the comedy comes first, but love's got to be in there somewhere. That's one of the things I liked about the Office US, even though they forced a romance on Michael, because they already had Jim/Pam, they could play around with Michael, and the Jan romance was perfect. Then they got all fuckin gooey with the Holly thing. I guess they felt like the Pam/Jim shippers needed more fodder?

Anyhow, back to PNR. Let me put it this way and then I'll shut up....

When I look back on PNR, the essence of PNR isn't Ben and Leslie working together in the campaign or Andy and April's road trip to the Grand Canyon. It's Pikitis's peach pit. It's Leslie trying to get all the PNR directors together for a picnic. It's Ron running off from Leslie in half-tears just before that picnic, because he was hungry and he already ate all the bacon out of her purse in the car. It's Andy wailing "I fell into the Pit" Stone-Temple-Pilots style. It's snorkjuice. It's a pretty decent breakfast foods buffet at a strip club. It's Jerry bringing an engagement gift to Ron's Tammy intervention.

That's the essence of PNR, that's its heart. It's not a bunch of BS romance, it's genuine characters in these unconventional-for-a-sitcom situations. By forcing the romance and the campaign, no matter how hard they tried, they took us further (IMO) from the heart and soul of what made the show so enjoyable.

P&R has received a 13 episode order, beginning in the Fall, which leaves a good chance for NBC to pick up the back nine.

/e: aaaand NBC has picked up the back 9 already. Full order for Parks and Rec. Happy day.

I was just sick that NBC waited so long to renew the Thursday block. I'm hoping Awake will wrap up nicely since prospects seem dim.

Is 22 episodes enough time for Leslie and Ben to have a big fight, breakup, makeup, and huge wedding with pre-wedding hijinx including, but not limited to, the loss of at least one ring, a catering mishap, and Lil Sebastian tribute pony Lil Christian? I guess we'll find out.

you left out the part about having the whole storyline spoiled super early by an NBC exec who airs the wrong promo bumper at the end of the show!
