Parks and Recreation: Season 6 Reviews

October 10, 2019
Even with a couple teeth knocked out, Parks and Recreation remains one of the most enjoyable shows on television. Nothing on the air, comedy or drama, is as insightful about human failings and still so perversely optimistic about human behavior.

Seems unavoidably on the decline... All the believable romantic landings have been stuck, all the best friendships have been sealed and reaffirmed time and time again, and all the silliest names have been given out to guests and recurring oddballs.

Just hearing that peppy theme song is like curling up in bed after a long time away from home; you wonder how you survived without it and you never want to leave.

This isn't the first time that Parks has closed a major episode on a scene that felt like a great series-ender.

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.

Parks is back with a vengeance.

The characters remain a great deal of fun to spend time with every Thursday, even if it's not always been clear where they are headed in a larger sense.

As it often has been with Parks And Rec, the political drama in the sixth-season premiere, "London," is mere window dressing for keen, warm character work from stars who still clearly enjoy one another's company.
