    TV: Parks & Recreation

    I thought I came across it a year ago and wanted to comment on the show now that I started getting into it, but it seems like it's deleted or locked. Can't find it on search anywhere.

    Are you sure we had a thread? I'm not.

    I've renamed this thread -- it's the thread now.
    My Cars: 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10 convertible (summer weekend car), 2001 Ford Mustang GT coupe (winter car & grocery getter)
    There is no replacement for displacement.
    - Wolfgang Bernhard, then Chief Operating Officer, Chrysler Group talking about the Dodge Viper SRT-10
    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

                        Honestly, I would say start at the very beginning. Start with season 1/episode 1 and work your way through it. Its only season 4 right now so it wont take that much time to catch up.

                        Not that the show is real story-dependent, but if you start at the beginning I think you'll get a much deeper appreciation (and find some things much funnier) of the new episodes being shown now.

                            Thirded. This is one show that's worth watching from the beginning.

                              anyone think season 4 is a bit weak compared to their earlier efforts?

                                I think its just that its much more relationship biased now that Leslie and Ben are together. The show is much funnier when they're actually doing Parks and Recreation related things, or when Tom is doing one of his crazy new ventures.

                                Still love the show, but I definitely understand what you're saying

                                  Season 1 is honestly not very good, I had a hard time enjoying it, but you kind of have to suffer thru the generic writing and cheap laughs to get to season 2, where the characters are much funnier and the series becomes much more enjoyable. It took me about 3 weeks to finish 6 eps of season 1, seasons 2-4 I finished in about a week.

                                    It was exactly the same for me... First 6 eps took forever, but then I watched a couple of ep ins bulk all the time...

                                      Ron swanson is my favorite character currently on television.

                                        Watched the first episode just before and it was kinda dull, still, only six episodes in the first season and if what you people say is true and that it starts picking up with season 2 then I'll stick with it!
