    Parks and Recreation is a rare gem--a TV comedy that's sweet, good-hearted and even inspirational, but also completely hilarious.

    While it's impossible not to love the competent and principled new Leslie, the character is at her funniest when she breaks from the show's easygoing pace and frenetically attempts to discharge her own anxieties by talking at the camera and protesting too much that her idealism is intact.

    TV's funniest ensemble cast anchored by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman delivers... SURPRISE: The best show on television. What more can you say? Unfortunately, Parks and Rec has struggled in the ratings like most NBC sitcoms. However, adding insult to injury, it has been consistently denied countless honors that were once given to and equally funny 30 Rock. Unlike 30 Rock and The Office, Parks and Recreation is still at the top of its game as it heads into its sixth season. I expect that audiences and academy members alike will finally realize that Parks and Rec is one of the best shows on TV and give it its due recognition before it says goodbye in...2091. (please.)
