Parks and Recreation: "Galentine's Day" Review Season 2, Episode 16

We knew all knew that Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Justin (Justin Theroux) weren't meant to last. It's an NBC comedy and certainly part of the humor of Parks and Recreation going forward will be pairing Leslie up with a slew of suitors. Justin was a pretty good catch though (and so was Officer Dave for that matter) so it's kind of refreshing to find out that Leslie's relationships might end with whimpers and not bangs. They'll end for, well, the same reasons why real people's relationships might end, which a nice unexpected curveball for a series like Parks. It's worth mentioning that this series has done a fantastic job of layering its previously one-dimensional characters with compassion, where its older brother series, The Office, has sort of exhausted us with how much all of its characters are eccentric, ignorant jerks. "Galentine's Day" was great, but it also offered us a few head-scratching character moments which felt good, but which also played out a bit too jarringly real for a show like this.

Parks and Recreation Review: "Galentine's Day" Season 2, Episode 16

Ron Swanson has officially confirmed that he is the coolest television character after with this week's Parks and Recreation. Not only does Ron bring the laughs, this week he brought the insightful pearls of wisdom. The Valentine themed "Galentine's Day" focused more on relationships, rather than the standard laugh-out-loud moments of Parks. Maybe it's because we're sappy around this Hallmark Holiday time of the year, but we feel Parks has given us enough laughs and fleshed out their characters enough to deserve it. The weakest of the four relationships covered, Leslie and Justin's came to an end last night. That's where the brilliant Ron stepped in and finally hit the nail on the head with Justin: he's a tourist. Good riddance to this douchebag story teller. Only poor Tom was hilariously heart-broken as he acted like the child in divorce during the break-up. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now

'Parks and Recreation' - 'Galentine's Day' Recap Season 2, Episode 16

Ron Swanson nailed it tonight. I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with Justin (Justin Theroux), and Swanson summed it up perfectly: he's a tourist. Justin is really only interested in stories. It's been bugging me the entire time he's been on the show, because he seems like a perfectly nice guy in some scenes and a total jerk in others -- but now it all comes together. Also nailing it? Andy's band. I not only loved his songs (I would totally make them my Valentine's soundtrack), but I enjoyed his befuddlement with the entire situation and his frustration with not being able to tell if the gig was a success or not, due to the lack of ladies flashing him. I was worried last week that April was going to give up on Andy and just fall back into the more familiar, comfortable life with her gay boyfriends, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that this was not the case. In fact, she breaks up with both of them, officially making herself a free agent. However, it doesn't look like she's ever going to get up the courage to make a move, much like it doesn't look like Andy's ever going to get a clue. However, it looks as though Anne may have more than a passing interest in the whole situation, which is pretty fun. To Read More Click Here If You Missed This Episode Watch It Here Online Now
