With the Parks and Recreation season finale in store for us this Thursday and the triumphant return of Burt Macklin last Thursday, I think it’s high time we finally dedicate this spot to everyone’s favorite dim-witted-but-lovable Mouse Rat front man, Andy Dwyer.
If 2011 was “The Year of Swanson” I’m becoming more and more inclined to deem 2012 “The Year of Dwyer.” What Macklin’s alter ego lacks in fan art and motivational posters he makes up for with undeniable likability and scene-stealing moment after scene-stealing moment. Actually, forget moments. Andy Dwyer has been busy stealing entire episodes the last two weeks. I’m pretty sure I could watch Stallone impersonations and Macklin codenames in succession over and over again for the rest of my life.
So let’s soak it all up before we wander into the Dwyer-less days of summer that none of us — not even the President’s enemies — are fully prepared for.
