The land drama will likely continue, but what everyone loves best about Parks has always been seeing the way its cast interacts with one another, and we finally have that back where it should be.
The fact that the series hasn't lost its sense of humor or its charm in the wake of Ron and Leslie's mutual hostility is also a testament to how much viewers love and care about ALL of Parks and Rec's characters and their lives.
It wasn't enough to just stick with the time jump that we all saw at the tail-end of last season, but the whole show dynamic is different, with most every character having moved on from anything Parks related.
The most intriguing development for the final season was a bit of a return to Parks and Rec's earliest days and themes: Leslie and Ron are enemies.
After last year's sluggish season, I was delighted to see the show displaying a renewed energy and quickened comedic pace, not to mention some of the laugh-out-loud funniest lines in ages.
Hopefully future episodes give the time jump more of a heft, but, at the end of the day, Parks and Recreation is still Parks and Recreation.
The time jump doesn't turn [it] into a new show, nor does it dunk the series in some kind of comic fountain of youth, but it does provide a fresh enough start to get us through 13 more episodes without feeling like we've seen it all too many times before.
