'Parks and Recreation': Is an 'Occupy Pawnee' episode in the works?

"Parks and Recreation" has used current events as comedy fodder a few times in the past -- see the Anthony Weiner-esque situation with Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) in this season's premiere.It appears the show's writers have also been watching the news in the past month or so, because one of the ideas kicking around the writers room is an "Occupy Pawnee" story, star and producer Amy Poehler says."We were talking about that," Poehler tells Vulture. "I don't know where we'll be with the time frame of that, but maybe Pawnee will be up in arms."We don't know what sort of thing might lead Pawnee's citizens to protest en masse (at least now that the issue of what goes in the time capsule has been settled), but an Occupy story could actually work within the world of "Parks and Rec." Consider:- Pawnee residents are known to get riled up about trivial things, so it's not a... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-is-an-occupy-pawnee-episode-in-the-works.html

'Parks and Recreation': Being just friends is fun -- right, Ben?

Ben Wyatt is stuck in the Friend Zone, and he's not all that happy about it -- despite what he may say.Call us crazy, but we're just not buying Ben's (Adam Scott) insistence that he's cool just being friends with Leslie (Amy Poehler) in the above clip from Thursday's (Nov. 10) "Parks and Recreation." It could be the way that he repeats "It's fun" five times in the talking head at the end of the scene, or the way he deflates when Leslie has to leave the Model United Nations session for campaign business. But Ben is not in a happy place right now.That's not good for him, but it could be very good for the show, because Scott is really good at squeezing comedy out of repressed feelings.Thursday's episode also has Ron (Nick Offerman) searching for someone to fill Tom's (Aziz Ansari) job, and as you can see in the video at the end... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-being-just-friends-is-fun-right-ben.html

'Parks and Recreation': Join Andy and April on a road trip

You saw the beginning and end of Andy and April's impulsive road trip on Thursday's (Nov. 3) "Parks and Recreation." Now you can watch some of the rest of the journey too. The show has released its first-ever set of webisodes. "Road Trip" (sponsored by Volkswagen) follows Andy (Chris Pratt) and April (Aubrey Plaza) as they set out on a marathon drive so Andy can cross seeing the Grand Canyon off his bucket list. There are a few obstacles along the way, though.In the first episode (which is above), April nearly torpedoes the whole trip when she discovers a spider in the car. Andy then gets really excited when they reach the Four Corners (or so he thinks), and Leslie (Amy Poehler) offers up some travel tips via phone. When they finally reach their destination, April and Andy talk about settling down there. The other three webisodes are below, and you can see photos and... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/11/parks-and-recreation-join-andy-and-april-on-a-road-trip.html

Ron Swanson Knows How to Profit from the End of the World on 'Parks & Rec' (VIDEO)

It was the end of the world this week on 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC). We found it rather charming that the Parks Department of Pawnee is so gracious and cordial to this group of fanatics who calculate the end of the world regularly, rescheduling each time the world doesn't end as predicted. Ron Swanson has even found a way to profit from their zealous conviction. He brought with him some flutes and recorders he'd fashioned at home in his wood shop and charged exorbitant prices to the believers. His look to the camera when one of them slyly asked if he'd take a check he could deposit tomorrow -- after the world ended, of course -- was absolutely priceless. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/11/04/ron-swanson-profit-from-end-of-world-parks-and-rec-video/

'Parks and Recreation': See two deleted scenes from 'Meet 'n' Greet'

If last week's "Parks and Recreation" ended too soon for you, take heart. You can watch a couple extra minutes of "Meet 'n' Greet" right here.NBC has posted a pair of deleted scenes from the Oct. 27 episode -- one for each primary story. The first has Tom (Aziz Ansari) trying out some political consulting and new words on Leslie (Amy Poehler), to varying success (he's at least right about the shoulder pads). There's also a priceless bit of Leslie fuming after Tom steals the "nipple king" away for a chat.The second clip gives us more of Andy and April's (Chris Pratt and Aubrey Plaza) Halloween party, and specifically a good deal more of Chris (Rob Lowe) and new girlfriend Millicent (guest star Sarah Wright) making Millicent's dad Jerry (Jim O'Heir) uncomfortable. There's even a bonus awkward moment with Ann (Rashida Jones), who has managed to spill something on her eggplant costume.And in case you... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/10/parks-and-recreation-see-two-deleted-scenes-from-meet-n-greet.html

Leslie Tries to Drown Tom After He Ruins Her Campaign Party on 'Parks & Rec' (VIDEO)

Tom Haverford is a narcissistic tool, but he does have a heart underneath his shameless self-promotion. Unfortunately, it came out way too late to salvage Leslie's campaign party for local small business owners on 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC). After agreeing to put the party together for her through his company, Entertainment 720, Tom instead turned it into a huge promotional opportunity for the company. He hijacked her personal encounters with key business owners, and then took over her presentation to them as well. http://www.aoltv.com/2011/10/28/leslie-tries-drown-tom-ruins-campaign-party-parks-rec-video/
