Product Description

Amy Poehler (Baby Mama, Saturday Night Live) leads an ensemble cast joined by guest stars Rob Lowe (The West Wing), Will Arnett (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock), and Andy Samburg (Saturday Night Live) in the hilarious second season of Parks and Recreation. Pawnee, Indiana’s most enthusiastic public servant solves all of her town’s problems - hosting a local telethon, ridding the golf course of possums and getting unhealthy energy bars out of park vending machines. By her side - but not necessarily doing anything - are her friends and colleagues: lady-killer Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari); disinterested intern, April (Aubrey Plaza); best gal pal, Ann (Rashida Jones); shoe-shine extraordinaire Andy (Chris Pratt); charismatic city-planner Mark Brendanawicz (Paul Schneider); and their anti-government boss, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman). Primetime Emmy® Award winners Greg Daniels (The Office, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, Saturday Night Live) bring you all 24 episodes of the comedy that critics are hailing as the “a terrific show” (Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly).


What a difference a season makes. If they gave an Emmy for most improved series, Parks and Recreation would have been a shoo-in for its turnaround second season that ranks atop the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness (check out the season 3 sneak preview included as an extra). An Emmy for being TV's funniest series would not have been out of line either. Everything works, from the seamless ensemble and pitch-perfect character-based humor to the deft direction in the mockumentary style of The Office. Unlike Michael Scott, however, Emmy nominee Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope is competent to a fault. The deputy director of the Pawnee, Indiana, parks department, she's a stick-in-the-mud, dyed-in-the-wool bureaucrat. But her insane work ethic and maniacal devotion to her job has earned her the grudging respect of her less-than-enthused coworkers, including Swanson (Nick Offerman, a master of the deadpan), her libertarian, antigovernment boss; Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari), always on the make but a sheep in wolf's clothing; April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza), a disaffected Daria type; the hapless Jerry (Jim O'Heir), who gets less respect than Meg on Family Guy; and sassy Donna (Retta Sirleaf). Unlike other workplace comedies, Knope is not the calm center around which an engaging group of goofballs orbits. The voices of reason in this series belong to Leslie's best friend Ann (Rashida Jones) and her boyfriend Mark (Paul Schneider), whose relationship is one of the through lines of this season. The breakout star this season is Chris Pratt as simple-hearted lug Andy, who gets a job running the city hall shoeshine stand where he can pursue Ann, his former girlfriend, but who enters into a sweetly played Jim and Pam-like friendship/romance with April. Very special episodes include "Ron and Tammy," featuring Megan Mullally (Offerman's real-life wife) as Swanson's scheming ex-wife Tammy, who works for the library, the inexplicable bane of Leslie's existence; "Hunting Trip," in which Leslie proves herself worthy after imposing herself on a guys-only bonding weekend; and "Practice Date," in which Leslie panics over her first date with a decent, straight-shooter cop (Louis C.K.). As in Modern Family, each episode is brimming with hilarious bits of business (like Andy's "I am on hold" song and April's lesson in the art of the spit take in "Hunting Trip"), character grace notes (Ron's alter ego, a smooth jazz smoothie named Duke Silver), and unexpected touching moments that ground the series. This four-disc set works overtime with prodigious extras, including hilarious deleted scenes for every episode, several convivial audio commentaries, webisodes featuring Pratt, and dated but still gold medal-worthy Winter Olympics promos. --Donald Liebenson

    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.
