Parks and Recreation: "Indianapolis" Review

The episode title "Indianopolis" was a bit misleading (not that I look to Parks titles for ultimate guidance) as this particular chapter could have been as easily called "Chris's House." Perhaps even as a nod to the Season 2 episode, "Leslie's House." Hey, maybe every character should get their own "House" episode! But I digress. " Indianapolis " was a clever joyride that took most of our gang out of the office and into the wonderful, lovable world that this show has created for itself.   "My name is Janet. Janet Snakehole." As for   Andy   and April's first episode as an official couple, I'd give them a B+. It started off a little too cute, but I was relieved to find that, after everything that's happened to them, they still just really like hanging out together and doing a bunch of brilliant nonsense. I liked the fact that the show has almost immediately addressed the two of them as being a couple of go-nowhere underachievers. I mean, do we really think that Andy's band will   ever   make it? I don't mean that to be mean, just that these two both totally deserve, and fit with, each other.    Read More... //tv.ign.com/articles/115/1151960p1.html

PARKS AND RECREATION “Indianapolis” Review

PARKS AND RECREATION "Indianapolis" Season 3 Episode 6 - I honestly just continue to love PARKS AND RECREATION so much that I feel like all of my reviews say the same things.  This week, Tom decides to host a party for a cologne maker so he can pitch his new scent "Tommy Fresh".  Poor Tom.  Nothing seems to ever go right for him, and while he’s the definition of a moron at times, deep down I feel his heart is in the right place.  And let’s be honest, Parks and Recreation would be less of a show if not for him.  His chauvinistic comments and actions just crack me up. And when you throw in a dose of how self-centered he is. well, it’s just all downhill  from there.  But he’s still hilarious. Turns out that Tom can’t really mix cologne, which is news that he takes to heart.   But with the help of his friends he gets revenge.  And it’s wonderful.

'Parks and Recreation' Season 3, Episode 6 Recap

The only part of 'Parks and Rec' season 3 that I haven't been a fan of is the way the writers have been treating Ann Perkins. Ever since she fell under the spell of Chris Traeger, she's looked like a complete wuss, someone who acts more like a member of Chris' wellness cult than someone who genuinely liked the obsessive Chris for who he is. Certainly, it didn't hurt that Chris looks like Rob Lowe, making them the prettiest couple on TV. But there was something about how that relationship was written that took Rashida Jones away from what she does best, which is play the strong, down-to-earth woman you want to take to a hockey game for a date.

'Parks and Recreation': Breaking up is hard to do -- ask Ann

The new guys on "Parks and Recreation" seem to be headed in different directions. Ben is getting ever more comfortable in Pawnee, while Chris, sadly, appears headed back to Indianapolis.But fear not (at least not too much): Rob Lowe isn't in next week's episode, but he's not gone for good. "Indianapolis" ends the run of six episodes that "Parks and Rec" filmed last spring to accommodate Amy Poehler's pregnancy, and at the time, the show hadn't yet locked in Lowe as a regular. The writers have some work to do to get Chris back to Pawnee now that he and Ann have broken up -- and now that Ann actually realizes it -- but he'll be back eventually.As for the rest of the episode, it was a pretty low-key affair, save for Ann's mini-freakout and subsequent sheepishness at not realizing she and Chris hadn't broken up (Rashida Jones does both indignant and chagrined quite well).... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/02/parks-and-recreation-breaking-up-is-hard-to-do----ask-ann.html

Parks and Recreation Review: "Indianapolis"

There was Ann and her realization that she was dumped a week ago by someone so chipper that she didn't even understand what took place. Among the highlights from this development: Chris' stone-faced explanation of why there's a ladies' razor in his bathroom, along with Leslie's admission that a guy once broke up with her in the shower. There was poor Tommy and his not-so-Fresh idea, which helped incorporate Ben into the group and included the first sitcom scene I can recall that featured one friend dry-heaving over the awful scent of another's self-created fragrance. Someone get that man a Miller Lite! There was Ron and his disappointment over a lack of real steak in the entire city. Need I even type out what made this storyline so ridiculous and hilarious? No? Good. I need to go round up all the bacon and eggs I can find in case Ron stops by later. Finally, there was the one sequence of events that was anything but tragic. Andy and April bonding over a competition to steal stuff was downright adorable. Because the latter has been so dour over a majority of the series, the smile on her face in the presence of Andy really says everything that needs to be said about these two.

Parks and Recreation 3.06 "Indianapolis" Review

"Give me all the bacon and eggs you have. Do you understand?" A funny thing happened tonight on Parks and Recreation . That funny thing is more accurately a lack of things. The funniest part? It absolutely worked. Every episode of Parks and Recreation is full of funny moments, and I'd go as far as to say it's the most consistent comedy on television right now. As the story unfolds, so do the laughs. Tonight, we had three stories in two places, and we got to sit back and just watch the ensemble interact. First, we had Ron and Leslie heading to Indianapolis and ending up eating in Chris' apartment. Second, Andy and April went on a date to the Snakehole Lounge, where our third story also takes place, that being Tom and Ben hanging out for the night. Most episodes have their share of hilarious quotes that you know you'll see in a tweet or Facebook status before the next commercial break (your friends are fans of the show, right?) and I thought that while this episode only had a few of those, it was still funny from beginning to end. Let's take a look at those laughs. Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/PvsMqXrZRbk/49571
