Parks and Recreation Season 5 Review “Emergency Response”

Some television shows are constantly treading the line between canceled and renewed. For the better part of its run, Parks and Recreation has been such a show. Even when they are renewed, their episode orders can continually fluctuate. Originally slated for 13 episodes (and a likely demise), Parks and Rec was once again faced with the task of writing an episode that could serve as a potential end to their show. Then, the episode order changed, and the puffed up brass at NBC got smacked down yet again (LOL, NBC). Viewed in a vacuum, this week’s episode of Parks and Rec was amusing and delightfully sappy in ways that we have come to expect. However, when you consider this episode as a potential penultimate episode (to next week’s wedding episode), then the episode looks all that more vibrant, sweet, and true to everything this show has been about for five seasons.
