Critic Consensus: Consistently bouyed by strong character work and an overarching optimism, Parks and Recreation remains a charming, fun and funny half hour to spend with Leslie Knope and co.

News & Interviews for Parks and Recreation: Season 6
Parks And Recreation has quietly been proving itself to be the best show about nerds (and the nerds who love them) on television.
It's great to see Leslie hang on in NBC's Thursday night comedy lineup, just as she's risen through the ranks of Pawnee city government. Nice girls, it seems, can overcome their irritating reputations if they work hard enough and long enough.
OK, this one was pretty much inevitable and a shining example of a happy, healthy relationship on TV.
By in large these were much more solid episodes, really banking on what makes each character so strong and enjoyable in the first place.
Both "Fillibuster" and "Recall" had the supporting cast back doing what they do best.
Audience Reviews for Parks and Recreation: Season 6
Limping into a sixth season, Parks and Recreation continues its downward spiral. Unfortunately the bulk of the season is spent undoing last season's story arc, as Leslie Knope fights a recall vote to remove her from Pawnee's city council, and there's a subplot involving a blundering merger attempt by Pawnee to envelope their rival city of Eagleton. Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are written out of the show, but since the writers have long forgotten how to write for Jones' character it's almost a blessing. Yet instead of using the opportunity to create fun new characters, they're replaced with even more annoying and stupid ones. Still, the season has a few shining moments as it brings the story arcs of several major characters to a conclusion. Season 6 has a glimmer of the smart, satirical comedy that Parks and Recreation once was, but the show has really lost its way.
