    With a cast as ostensibly close-knit and in-tune as these actors are, season four of Parks and Recreation illustrates just how far the series has come from its mediocre beginnings, and could very well take it to even greater, and funnier, places.

It has proven time and time again why it is superior to all other shows on television and why it was ripped off by the Emmy's. There is nothing not to like about this show. The characters are brilliant, witty and smart. It's a show that defines this generation, which is ironic because so few people watch it. Expand

    Season four was the best yet. As good as any other sitcom on television. I find this season better because it gives us a saga to followSeason four was the best yet. As good as any other sitcom on television. I find this season better because it gives us a saga to follow throughout the season but it is still tremendously funny. All the characters continue to improve year by year. This season I found Ron picked up a lot of depth and he got far more funny as well. This show may have reached just reached its peak. Expand

Parks and Rec is WAYYY funnier than The Office, The Big Bang Theory (the worst comedy series ever), 30 Rock, Modern Family and any other show on TV. It has the highest quality factor and Amy Poehler is a comedy genius. Truly a brilliant show. Expand
