    Product Description

    Four-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation) returns for the hilarious fourth season of Parks and Recreation. The ever-enthusiastic Leslie Knope (Poehler) has her sights set on the City Council, but political campaigns are never easy - Leslie must deal with shady journalists, a deep-pocketed opponent (guest star Paul Rudd), bus accidents, and even a still-smitten old flame in her quest to serve her beloved hometown. This Peabody Award-winning season features "TV's funniest ensemble cast" (Entertainment Weekly) and phenomenal guest stars including Rudd (Knocked Up), Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) and Louis C.K. (Louie). Catch all 22 episodes uninterrupted and commercial free, from Primetime Emmy Award winners Greg Daniels (The Office, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, Saturday Night Live).

    After languishing for three seasons in the shadow of the similar and more successful mockumentary series The Office, Parks and Recreation steps out on its own in the fourth season by taking a page from its better-known predecessor's playbook--namely, a combination of strong writing, an exceptional ensemble cast, and carefully chosen moments of genuine warmth and feeling. Part of the season's success must also be attributed to a solid central story arc--Leslie (Amy Poehler) Knope's run for the Pawnee city council--that also provides a structural hub for the many secondary storylines afforded to the large cast. The arc helps to ground Poehler's character, finally elevating her from a hapless Michael Scott carbon to an underdog whose goal of improving her standing is often challenged by the wide variety of extreme personalities in her orbit. Her biggest obstacle of the season is her council-race opponent, the overly confident but woefully unqualified Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd), who expects to coast to victory on his family wealth and superficial appeal. Leslie's attempts to manage her campaign while contending with a new romantic relationship with Adam Scott's Ben Wyatt and her parks and recreation staff, which have signed on as her campaign team, are told in smart, funny strokes that avoid the occasional buffoonery of past seasons and give Poehler a terrific showcase for her numerous talents (including directing an episode, "The Debate"). The supporting players also enjoy their own quality storylines this season, most notably Aziz Ansari's Tom Haverford, whose entertainment company crashes and burns in spectacular fashion, and Nick Offerman's Ron Swanson, who contends with not one but two ex-wives--both named Tammy--with designs on controlling his life. There are also an array of excellent guest turns, most notably Patricia Clarkson and Megan Mullally (Offerman's real-life spouse) as the Tammys, as well as Louis C.K. as Leslie's lovelorn ex-boyfriend. All of these factors contribute to a breakout season for a series that has in many ways supplanted The Office as one of the best workplace ensemble comedies on television. The four-disc set of season four includes all 22 episodes, as well as extended cuts on four episodes, including Poehler's director's cut for "The Debate." A slew of deleted and alternate scenes provide a look at the improvisational work that goes into many episodes, while an uncensored gag reel highlights some impressively colorful flubs. The Swanson Zone focuses on Ron's defiantly libertarian and occasionally bizarre worldview, while Road Trip allows supporting players Chris Pratt and Aubrey Plaza to step into the spotlight for a quartet of vignettes that follow their misadventures on a road trip to the Grand Canyon. Leslie's campaign ads and several amusing promotional videos round out the supplemental features. --Paul Gaita

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Comedies on Television June 3, 2012
    Who would have thought 3 years ago that Parks and Recreation would one day be better than The Office? To anyone who has seen Seasons 2 or 3 of Parks and Recreation, this shouldn't be a surprise; this show is one of the best comedies on air right now.

    And Season 4 does not disappoint.

    At the end of Season 3, Leslie Knope is asked to run for public office with city council elections on the horizon. The first episode of Season 4 picks this thread up directly: the crux of this season centers around Leslie running for office. Unlike previous seasons, this one has a very real and cogent through-line; every episode advances this storyline to some degree. While some of these episodes are serialized in nature, they also do stand alone as fantastic episodes of television. The writing on this show involves a great mixture of wit, awkwardness, absurdity, and sentiment. While many of us were worried that the budding romance between Leslie and Ben would be cheesy and boring (e.g., Pam and Jim,) the writers don't drop the ball.

    With all of this said, I don't feel like Season 4 was quite as good as the previous two seasons. This put off many long-time fans, but even with the slight decrease in quality, this season was still head and shoulders above most of today's television. If you are a newcomer to the series, I would recommend starting from the beginning; not necessarily because you will miss too much of the story, but because the earlier seasons are just as funny (and sometimes funnier) than this one. If, however, you have watched the previous seasons of Parks and Rec, Season 4 is worthy of your time, energy, and money.

    Recommended for fans of: The Office, Community, Arrested Development.

    5.0 out of 5 stars BURT MACKLIN, FBI! July 5, 2012
    By Sean
    Parks and Rec is always hilarious, everyone knows that. Between the great Ron Swanson, Leslie, Andy, and every other character on the show, Parks is one of the finest comedies currently on television. Season four showed no drop in quality whatsoever. And on top of all of the brilliant comedy, it also had some very touching emotional moments that are hard to forget. I love this show!!

    And how can I forget to mention Paul Rudd's fantastic performance as Bobby Newport Jr! The guy was hilarious and I predict a best guest actor in a comedy Emmy nod for him!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Was already excited - this video sealed that. September 3, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I only got into Parks and Recreation over the summer, but I devoured three seasons worth of episodes on 10 days. That's how awesome this show is. Of course when I saw this preview up on Amazon for download, I clicked and watched. My excitement level went from "So excited!" to "Oh my God I need to go celebrate this awesomeness at the Snakehole Lounge like right now."

    If you haven't watched Parks and Recreation yet, you should really rethink your choices in life because by not watching this show you're probably depriving your funny bone of one of the best medicines it could ever have. And once you're done with season 3, watch this and prepare yourself for season 4. Trust me, I wouldn't lead you astray. If I wanted to do that, I'd tell you to watch Two and a Half Men and cringe through it.

    Parks and Recreation is one of the funniest shows on television, hands down, and this preview does not disappoint.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite shows on TV March 1, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    Amy and the entire ensemble (and the writers) continue to bring consistently funny performances and dialogue to the TV comedy world. I hope this show runs for another 10 years--at least. It manages to surprise me and make me laugh out loud, and that's rare in TV comedy these days.

    I don't know how I never watched this from the beginning on television. All the characters are funny and the show just works. Do yourself a favor and watch all of the seasons.

    5.0 out of 5 stars So much talent for just one show December 15, 2012
    By Nitrixx
    I watched the first two seasons of Parks and Rec and loved them. Had heard all the early criticism and was surprised by it. Its a Docu-comedy based the American and the British versions of The Office. I'm a big fan of Aziz Ansari and Amy Poehler and follow their careers so I was really interested in giving it a try because of them. I thought it had much greater potential for more interesting story lines since they were dealing with the complicated politics of government.

    Even from the first few episodes I felt the show was already as strong as the Office. The characters were already very likable and very well developed. My copy of season 2 got lost in the mail and then I got into the other great show on TV (Breaking Bad) and kind of lost track of Parks. The last three days I watched every single episode from season 3-5 and I have to say that the collection of talent they have on this show could probably field 5 new successful shows. Extremely well written,LOL funny, sweet,poignant and unpredictable. If your a fan of the Office or just enjoy incredible comedies the level of M.A.S.H. or Cheers(its that good) then download this show right now.
