Yeah she was too much of a Michael Scott wannabee in the first season, which wasn't helped by the show not having an identity of its own and being reliant on working as an Office spinoff. The minute they ditch that idea, work on developing Pawnee as this separate little world cut off from reality and focus on making the everyday people the story Leslie and the show as a whole improve tenfold.

Its hard to pick a favourite season, though 3 might just be it for now. I feel confident atm in saying Season 5 might eclipse it by the time its completed. The stretch in consistency from 'Women in Garbage' in Episode 11 up until the latest episode was frightening and is up there as the best 5/6 episode stretch in the show's history for me. Everything worked and there was a sense of heartbreaking emotion combined with the pulsating humour that made the show transcendent and so far ahead of every other show on TV currently.

Totally agree about Leslie originally being a 'Michael Scoot wannabee', heard many people compare her to him during the first season. I'm yet to watch season 5 since I've only been watching on Netflix, but I'll get around to it soon enough and thanks to your glowing endorsement for it I'm very excited.

A mini tease to wet your appetite, Rob Lowe absolutely dominates this season atm. Seriously he's started to rival and eclipse Adam Scott for facial expressions on an episode to episode basis and everything Chris touches atm is absolute gold. All the other characters get their time to shine and the show has all the usual and heartfelt gags at its disposal on top of some genuine emotion which feels genuine and not convulted when the scenes are executed.

Excellent, great to hear the quality continues. And Rob Lowe is just a god (he was hilarious and brilliant in his small role in Californication too). I remember being a bit worried when he and Adam Scott were added to the cast permanently as I thought it could hurt the show, but they've only made it better.

I saw he's in the preview for the next episode, absolutely stoked to see how he adapts to the Californication universe. Last two episodes have been really strong and alleviated my fears the show had lost its way on the back of Season 5 and a few episodes in Season 6 leaving me unconvinced the show wasn't becoming a parody of itself.

Yeah both are supremely gifted actors (Scott's one of my favourites based on Party Down & Parks) and really add to the dynamic and relationships with other characters. What I love about Parks is how for all the notable character pairings you get numerous characters who only infrequently interact with each other but alwayss show tremendous chemistry when they do. April/Ben & Ann/Ron in Season 5 is testament to this in particular imo.

Ah yes, Party Down is something I need to get around to watching. In fact I was discussing it with you a few weeks ago I believe, and you sold it well. I've actually already got season 1 on my LoveFilm rental list so hopefully I'll get around to watching it over the next week or so. My love of Adam Scott actually made me find out about that show. His facial expressions and comic timing is just perfect in Parks.

Bubz keep a close eye out for Ron's carefully crafted 'only factual information speeches', another great running part of him/characters in Parks, haha, WOOLCOCK will appreciate it (this message).
