Tv Season Info

Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) runs for a seat on Pawnee's city council in Season 4, but she'll need every bit of help she can get from her friends to beat her opponent, local golden boy Bobby Newport (recurring guest star Paul Rudd). Even worse, Leslie knows that she has to break up with Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott) or risk a scandal, since government coworkers aren't allowed to date. Meanwhile, Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) leaves the parks department to found an outlandish entertainment company, but the day-to-day responsibility of running a business soon turns his dream job into a disaster.

Critic Reviews for Parks and Recreation Season 4

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

It's still not clear how Leslie's campaign and the various career changes for the other characters will impact the show going forward but as long as the series continues to maintain its emblamatic charm, we're in for another good year.

Parks and Recreation continues its streak of leaving a season on a strong note with "Win, Lose or Draw" - an episode that hit the right spots comedically while also, you know, sneaking up on me emotionally.

Sep 20, 2013 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Funny and touching in all the best Parks and Rec ways.

Sep 20, 2013 | Full Review…

Parks and Recreation... once again proved itself the most consistently hilarious and heartwarming series around during its fourth year.

We'd all be very, very sad if this were it for Parks, but if it is, at least they went out on a high note.

Even though... [it] is a whirlwind, it's a whirlwind with an end in sight, expertly helmed and penned by showrunner Michael Schur.

With a cast as ostensibly close-knit and in-tune as these actors are, season four of Parks and Recreation illustrates just how far the series has come and could very well take it to even greater, and funnier, places.
