Last night’s “Parks and also Recreation” may have actually been among the sweetest episodes of tv this seaboy. All the warm and also fuzzy magic that once belengthy to Jim and Pam on “The Office” currently belongs to Andy and April, while the will-they/won’t-they sexual stress that defined the early periods of “The Office” has been transplanted on to Ben and Leslie. “Parks and also Recreation” have the right to take benefit of both halves of the Jim and Pam equation at the same time, though through Andy and April it has actually the added benefit of two of television’s even more unique characters. In reality, if you take into consideration it, many kind of of the character kinds on “Parks and Recreation” are unique to the present. Undoubtedly Ron, April, Tom and also Jean Ralphio, while Leslie and Andy are original variations of more typical sitcom characters.
Right currently, Ben is floating without Leslie to anchor him, but as the the achy exreadjust between the two at the end of last night’s episode demonstrated, there’s still an abundance of romantic chemisattempt between the two. I’m not sure, but, if the present might ever sustain the presence of two blisscompletely happy couples, so if Ben and Leslie ever obtain together, it may intend the separation of April and Andy. I don’t think my soul could take that. They play off of each various other so well, and also this seakid has provided an totally new dimension for April: She glows. She fucking glows, world.
I preferred that Michael Shur toned dvery own Tom Haverford last night and also allowed the character to be likable again: I maintained thinking that he and also Jean Ralphio would uncover a way to conserve the firm via that “perfect” party, but I’m glad they didn’t. Entertainment 720 has offered its function. Tom requirements to discover another entry suggest into the “P&R” universe.
Robert Pine, who played Herb Scaifer — the leader of the Reasonabalists — offered the greatest laughs last night: The “volcano mouth” line and his exchange through Chris provoked such an extended giggling fit that I had to pausage the show to recoup. But it was the heartbreaking minute between Ben and Leslie and, particularly, the heart-swelling minute between Andy and also April at the Grand Canyon that provided last night’s genuine emotional wallop. Who kbrand-new you can take somepoint as lame as the bucket list conceit and turn it right into somepoint so touching?
