Tv Season Info

Eternally optimistic government employee Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) sets her sights on a new goal in series 3: revitalizing the town of Pawnee by throwing a harvest festival. Meanwhile, there's love in the air for just about everyone in the cast: Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) begins dating health-conscious city manager Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe); April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) and Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) enter into a whirlwind romance; and Leslie falls for Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott), despite the fact that as coworkers, they aren't allowed to date.

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Amy Poehler, as lead funny person Leslie Knope, does absurdist comedy as well as anyone on TV, and she's a pleasure to watch.

The cast is phenomenal, the writing inventive and genuinely funny, and you could pick just about any character and almost mistake them for the show lead instead of Poehler.

With any luck, these talented, funny, exceedingly likable people will keep doing what they do best for many years to come.

Some of the sharpest writing and possibly the best ensemble acting of any sitcom currently on the air.

There are plenty of excellent episodes in store.
