    [The premiere] rarely takes the expected route, a heartening sight from a show entering its syndication years.

    Beyond blissful laughs, Parks and Recreation offers a healthy image of political cooperation at a time when we could really use it.

It's probably one of my favourite comedies AND one of the best comedies on television right now ...but it doesn't get enough recognition at all. It's a little sad that cast members Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe are leaving this year because they seem like the essential make up of the show and how it works. But I'm excited to see how the season progresses and how Leslie will cope! Expand

There were more stand-out episodes than any other season this season "London" "Recall Vote" "Ann and Chris" "Anniversaries" "Galentines Day" "One in 8000" and "Moving Up" all being highly praised by fans and critics. The performances were also stellar, from Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt - as well as all the terrific guest stars such as Billy Eichner, It's just such a shame next season will probably be the last, but I am glad they are going out on top and not letting the show go stale.

The humor has been excellently refined and the characters are just as charming as ever. I like how the big plots are still present, but instead of taking full focus they continue on in the background. This allows each episode's individual plot feel like it's own self-contained thing. It allows the humor and little moments to flourish like never before.

    Big, game changing moments still pop-up when you least expect them keeping viewers on their toes. An always appreciated element. With only one season left until it's conclusion "Parks and Recreation" gives it something to live up to with season 6. With humor and writing this on point I can't wait to see how they top it later this year. Especially with this season's ending.
