Re: TV SHOW discussion thread (NO FUCKING SPOILERS please)
Perfect description. Same with the cameo characters part. It's so superbly written and works everytime because of it. Duke Silver. That is all.
Think I saw once someone say its not the sort of comedy that beats you over the head with joke after joke, but rather the humor comes from how these wonderful characters interact in realistic situations with just a bit of Pawnee quirkiness to separate it from the real world. That's something I'd definitely agree with and its definitely up there with my favourite shows of all time.
Not like Community where if the jokes or the sillyness aren't on then the show kinda sucks. If that HOF thread got one more person to watch Parks then it served it's purpose.
It's only 6x22ish minute episodes so even if you don't like them you've only wasted just over 2 hours of your life. I don't get the Season 1 hate personally. I thought it was still really good. Not on the level of the preceding seasons but they were still finding the show and what they wanted it to be at that point. There's only 6 episodes so you may as well watch them, if nothing else for the ground base of the characters like Ann, Andy and Leslie.
can i skip series 1 of Parks and still get all the story?
because the first few episodes bar a few chuckles are terrible.
