In which Parks and Recreation reduced me to a big ol’ ball of FEELINGS.
- 30 Rock: Only a sitcom in its lame duck, we-have-nothing-to-lose final season could get away with being as explicitly political as 30 Rock has been the past few episodes. It’s made for some great stories and gags so far, too, including Tracy and Jack analyzing which parts of the country will vote for Barack A-Llama, and which will go for Baseball Mitt Romney. As always, it’s gonna come down to the penis of America, Florida, with its bus passengers who ran out of money and Parrotheads, I mean, Crab Catchers. I loved pretty much everything about “Unwindulax” (Amy Sedaris sighting!), but my biggest laugh came from Jack’s Romney endorsement video, starring America’s two favorite black celebrities: Don Cheadle, sans bed of rice, and Jazz from Transformers.
- Up All Night: Nope.
- The Office: OK. Favorite Office costumes through the years? In no particular order, my list goes something like: Two-Headed Michael, Book Face Jim, Osama Bin Laden Creed, Hitler Pam, and Charlie Brown Kevin.
- Parks and Recreation: I am deeply, ridiculously in love with you, Parks and Recreation. And above everything else, I just, I want to be with you forever, and I hope NBC never cancels you. In a single episode, you were able to both stage one of TV’s funniest fart jokes ever (now there’s a list idea), AND write an incredibly touching, surprising final scene between Leslie and Ben, which I won’t discuss here, but YAY. The thing about me is, Parks and Recreation, I’m glad you exist, and I’m going to watch “Halloween Surprise” again right now. Brb.
