'Parks & Rec': Bradley Whitford And A Nod To 'The West Wing'

After a brief hiatus, " Parks & Recreation " (Thu., 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC) returned to a new time slot and the continuation of Leslie Knope's political campaign. This episode came with a nod to " The West Wing " as Bradley Whitford guest-starred as a councilman. Lelsie was trying to convince him to not cut the budget of the parks department. Things got complicated when he agreed and instead cut funding from a local animal shelter, effectively shutting it down. This was a political disaster, as it showed Leslie playing favorites with her own department at the expense of innocent animals. This problem brought April out of her shell, and saw her lead an adoption program. Of course, she wound up with more animals than she started. One dog got adopted, but another woman dropped off two cats and ran off. In the end, a solution was reached that gave an edge to Leslie's opponent. She proposed that he use his personal fortune to save the shelter. Follow the campaign on "Parks & Recreation" Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

What feels like a win for Leslie, though, comes with some unintended consequences."This episode is about realizing she has to make tough choices," Poehler tells Zap2it via e-mail. "If she wants to win she has to start thinking bigger. This might mean not being able to take care of her friends the way she used to."Which is not to say...
