It’s finally here. The week Parks and Recreation returns! I’m willing to wager that we celebrate that fact quite often this week so I want to put it our there early.
I’ve already exhausted most of my Best of # options when it comes to everyone’s favorite network sitcom focused on local government in Indiana (previously: Andy Dwyer, April Ludgate, Tom Haverford, Jerry Gergich, and Leslie Knope). Not to mention UPROXX is essentially one giant Best of Ron Swanson. But it all works out because Ben Wyatt is still out there and it’s simply his time: Ben is the most underrated source of comedy on the show, Mike Ehrmantraut is going to play his dad, Brandon recently (and perfectly) outlined why he’s the best nerd on television, and commenter Roger Klotz floated the ultimate meta plot for the Party Down movie during Jim O’Heir’s Q&A and it needs as many eyeballs as possible.
Moral of the story: Ben Wyatt is a crossover hit. Everybody gets it.
