  • Apr 12, 2020

  • Mar 20, 2020
    Leslie Knope continues her quest to build a park in Season 2 of Parks and Recreation. This season the Pawnee Parks Department hosts a visit from officials from their sister city in Venezuela, participate in a telethon, shoot a new cover for their Summer Catalog, and go on a hunting trip. Additionally, Andy attempts to win back Ann and Leslie wades into the dating pool. The writers do an especially good job at expanding on and developing the characters; playing up the ensemble aspect and given each character their moment (even the supporting ones). And, the show addresses some interesting issues, such as government partnerships with businesses, politicizing awards, and budget cuts. Also, some interesting guest stars are featured; including Will Arnett, John Larroquette, Natalie Morales, Adam Scott, and Rob Lowe. Entertaining and full of laughs, Parks and Recreation delivers a great second season.
