You don’t watch Parks and Recreation? Everybody on that show can get it. (Also, please watch.)
- Community: If only the whole episode had been set in the darkest timeline…If you loved “Intro to Knots,” I get it. If you hated “Intro to Knots,” makes sense. It should have induced a strong feeling either way — the real-time structure, the Rope homage, the callbacks to previous episodes, all impressive in theory — but like so many other episodes of Community this season, I thought it was just fine. The jokes occasionally landed, but large chunks of the episode went by without a chuckle, while the characters and their relationships with one another either felt muted (Troy and Britta separate, the best; Troy and Britta together, the worst) or like we’ve been down that road before. Abed, in particular, once the show’s best character, is a mess now, although Die Hard in a restaurant would have been great. Not Hannibal Annie great, but pretty close.
- Parks and Recreation: Too much greatness to sum up in one paragraph, so instead, here’s my Parks and Recreation Baby Power Rankings, listing which couples would make the best babies. #5. Perd Hapley and Joan Callamezzo (so well spoken), #4. Leslie and Ben (loves waffles and Fringe, in that order), #3. Jerry and Gayle (they’re already three-for-three), #2. Donna and Donna (I don’t know how that would work, but the world needs more Donnas), #1. Andy and April (obviously).
Curl up with a kitten, blast some Letters to Cleo, and enjoy these here GIFs.
