Parks & Recreation started promisingly enough in its (short) first season, but the in its second season, it has developed into my favorite thing currently on TV. Every episode is sharply written, and each character is well-defined, as are the relationships between the characters. This show has some of the best cast chemistry I've ever seen.

I think where this show went from being a good comedy to a great TV show is when the character relationships started developing more thoroughly. As the show progresses, there are more "serious" moments that show how these people care about and take care of each other. Make no mistake, these scenes are as funny as the "wacky" moments, but the show's heart shines through.

I highly recommend Parks & Recreation for fans of quickly paced sitcoms and strong ensemble acting

The title of my review says it all.

The 2009-2010 season was incredible. Both veterans such as the Office and 30 Rock and brilliant new series like Modern Family, Glee, and Community made this one of the best TV seasons in years. But in its second season, Parks and Recreation rose above it's weak first season and is at LEAST as funny, well acted and written as the best comedies of the season. But not only that, it (perhaps along with Modern Family) was the most consistent. There were no "meh" episodes... I wouldn't rate any of them below a B+. And the addition of Rob Lowe to the show is a Godsend. Not only does he bring an incredible energy to the show, it may be his best work that I've ever seen.

Something that sets successful shows like the Office, Modern Family, and Parks and Recreation from the rest of the pack is having a big heart. And Parks and Rec. exemplifies this. It simply is not a cynical show, and while packing big laughs week after week, there is a deeper level of humanity and sincerity that in my mind makes it simply about as wonderful as television gets.

First season, while not without merit, failed to fully find it's voice, and ultimately led to a low rated second season. On any TV critic's score card, Parks and Recreation's second season was up there with the best of them. Worse still is that aside from Amy Poehler, it was unfairly snubbed of Emmy noms, and this is a shame. Fans questioned whether NBC would cancel the show, but happily, it will get a third season; sadly it will enter as a mid-season replacement. I'm hoping NBC's faith in the show is manifest in many marketing dollars so that this gem stays on the air.

If you haven't seen this show, you are in luck just because you can grab the first two seasons and watch them back to back. Over the last couple of years, in my mind The Office has run out of fresh ideas and just keeps having people in the office hook up, break up, hook up, and break up again, and it's getting old. THANK GOD for Parks and Recreation. I am NOT the biggest Amy Poehler fan out there, but the main reason to watch this show is Aziz Ansari. The guy is amazing, and I think that in Season 2 Amy was able to step into her role better than Season 1, and the show hasn't looked back. There is a great supporting cast on this show, and Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza are both fantastic as well. I used to look forward to Thursday Nights for The Office, but now I look forward to Parks and Recreation, and then watch The Office to see if Dwight and Angela are together or not together, or back together, or not together, or back together...I forget.

The way I see it, the more 5 star reviews for this show the better. And since the DVD release date has recently been announced (Nov. 30) I thought that was a good enough reason to add a review as any.

After a solid but not spectacular start in season 1, Parks & Recreation has improved by leaps and bounds in the 2nd season. Starting with "Pawnee Zoo" (the first episode) all the way to "Freddy Spaghetti" (the last episode) there hasn't been a lull in quality or a lapse in developing the various stories that this season covers. Part of what makes this show so great is that no matter how despicable, repulsive or pathetic the characters are the show's writers write stories that let you root for these characters. Whether it's Leslie Knope (a well meaning but bumbling and somewhat ineffective bureaucrat), Tom Haverford (a sleazy but harmless flirt who does very little of an actual job), Ron Swanson (an authoritarian who hates government programs but admires Leslie's spirit and effort [especially in this season]) or Ann Perkins (a good hearted nurse who through circumstance is tied to the Parks and Recreation department) all the major characters are multi-faceted who have a lot of depth and heart once you get to know them. The same is true for the minor characters like Jerry Gergich and Donna Meagle but especially April Ludgate and Andy Dwyer who also have their quirks and flaws but in this season these two characters in particular have a developing relationship that is the heart of the show. They aren't the only characters involved relationships; Leslie, Ron, Tom, Ann and Mark each have their romantic lives explored as well but more importantly each relationship covered is compelling.
