After some searching, I've come to the conclusion that WC has never had a Parks and Rec thread. I'm a little surprised.
Anyways, thanks to being caught up with Community, I decided to give this show a chance. After a dreadful first season that made the show feel like a less funny and more over the top version of the Office, it's starting to find it's groove in the second season. Leslie's wackiness is beginning to be a little more restrained and Ron has stopped being a Ron Burgundy clone and is becoming his own character. For me, the highlight of every episode is Andy. Chris Pratt, who plays Andy, was the reason why I even bothered with the show in the first place. I loved him as the fun loving, but dumb jock, Bright, on Everwood and couldn't get enough of him as the hilarious hippie at Brown College, Che, from the fourth season of The OC. The dude's perfect as being the slightly immature, but big heart character. I found myself enjoying April nearly from the start. As someone who used to watch Daria a lot, she's nearly a live-action version of that character.
That being said, I still can't stand Mark. Immediately, I saw him as a Jim Halbert ripoff, only not nearly as likable. Thanks to the predictable coming together of Mark and Anne (Can you say Pam?), it just made me care even less about her. However, due to the show showcasing more of their characters (Such as Tom), each episode is far more tolerable and enjoyable than season 1.
Anyone else a Parks and Rec fan?
