A great cast of well developed characters.

I find myself laughing out loud a bunch with this show and I actually really feel like I'm connecting with the characters.

Season 3 of Parks and Rec is, in my opinion, the BEST one yet.

Parks and Recreation's winning streak continues...still the best show on TV right now. So many new developments. So many new classic episodes/moments. So much is right with this show that it's hard to know where to begin. Let's see we've got the successful intergration of Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) and Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott). Speaking of...there's another adorable relationship unfolding between Ben and Leslie. But my favorite as far as couples go is still April and Andy. And if not for NBC's flub of accidentally promoting April and Andy's awesome sauce wedding they would have taken everyone by surprise with probably the most charming TV wedding I have ever seen. And what really is amazing is that they are more loveable/ interesting to watch as a married couple. From them being horrible housekeepers, to them eating turkey chili with a shared plastic fork off of a frisbee, to their role playing and contests of seeing who can get the most money from people at the Snakehole Lounge...there are so many things that have been funny, sweet and original about them.

But there have been great moments with the other major characters as well: Ann and Leslie anger dancing in "The Fight". Ron swiveling his chair around his circular desk in a vain effort to avoid citizens in "The Bubble". The Return of Tammy 2. The Return of Jean-Ralphio. The Return of Detlef Schrempf. Tom seemingly becoming a budding mogul with Jean-Ralphio (their company's name is Entertainment 720). Which I hope means that we get to see more of Jean-Ralphio ("Flushed with Cash"). The ecstasy that was "5000 Candles In The Wind", and the potential agony that is Tammy 1 (Just the mention of her made Tammy 2 run for cover). And what's gonna happen with Leslie? Will she run for and/or become Mayor?

this is how you create a classic, clever comedy tv series. michael schurr and greg daniels had already done it with the office and got that show off and running but after they left (around season 5?) their new tv project "parks and recreation" started the same way the office had. . .a little rough and rocky with low ratings at the beginning and seemed somewhat of a carbon copy of the office. however, when a tv show has smart humor, excellent writing and loveable/unique/warm characters with depth, the show is going to get a cult following and continue to grow and become beloved. this season also did a great job of separating itself from the office while still obviously borrowing the humor.

parks and recreation is unique in where most tv shows fail. either a show will go for cheap laughs and the raunchy sex humor like two and a half men or a show can stay classy and sophisticated and have character development and continous running stories between characters that arch over the entire season and you feel a real connection with the people and their situations...or you have the 30 minute sitcom where each episode basically starts from a clean slate which disables you from truly getting to know or connect to a character. fortunately, parks and rec picks the high road and stays classy while building on back stories and being absolutely hilarious.

while i was sad to see mark brandaniwitz (paul schneider) character go last season, the addition of ben (adam scott) and chris (rob lowe) has been HUGE. i think they add alot to the show and i think rob lowe's health-freak of a character "chris" is just absolutely hilarious and adam scott's "ben" is awkwardly great and warm and those two characters add alot of laughs and quirkiness to an already great ensemble/cast.

Parks and Recreation received its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series this year, and if you've been watching the show Thursday nights on NBC, it's easy to see why. But if for some reason you haven't now is the perfect opportunity to catch yourselves up by picking up the newly released third season on DVD.

Parks and Recreation, which is shot in a mocumentary style, follows Deputy Leslie Knope, played by the hilarious Amy Poehler, a mid-level bureaucrat working in the Pawnee, Indiana Parks and Recreation Department. In season one, we find Leslie on a quest to build a park for her city, but she runs into many obstacles along the way and hilarity ensues. Though the show's main focus is Leslie, Parks and Recreation would not be the same without its outstanding cast of supporting characters. Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson, played by the brilliant Nick Offerman, is a mustachioed, meat-eating libertarian who despises his job almost as much as his two ex-wives, both named Tammy - one of which we meet in second season. April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) is Ron's unruly assistant whose pessimism and inability to care about doing her job correctly is perfect for Ron's aversion to taking calls and meetings with other local government officials or citizens of Pawnee. Ann Perkins, played by the beautiful and charming Rashida Jones, is Leslie's best friend and confidant. Though Ann is a nurse at the Pawnee Hospital during season one and season two, she comes to work with Leslie at the Parks Department in season three which causes a little bit of friction between the two in episode 13 called "The Fight.
