The steamroller is back in town! "Smallest Park" took everything I love about Parks and added in an unhealthy amount of Chris Trager awesomeness.
As much as I love steam-rolling Leslie, I was glad this trait of hers was touched upon. Because, I have to be honest, Leslie and her can do spirit can at times be just too crazy.
