spoilered for big! oh no!

I just started watching this today after hearing nice things about it. It's kind of like the office but cute and yay. I figured i might as well make a new thread for this show while we have a folder for it, rather than losing my own posts in the ustv thread.

Amy poehler <3 rashida jones :3 p&r is super sweet.

I'm only up to s02e02, my internet is sloow and subtitle-mkv pairings are so bad i had to write a whole script to resync them from one fps to another. omfs! but it works ok.

Does anyone else like parks :<

I haven't known anyone to watch Parks and not end up loving it. Season 1 is the worst as the writers weren't sure what they were doing and treated it like the Office spin-off it was originally going to be. Season 2 was a definite improvement and show got even better when Adam Scott and Rob Lowe joined the cast.

Parks gifs!

This is currently my favourite programme in the world. Ever.

About half way through series 3 and I've loved every episode (s1 isn't too bad, but 2 and 3 blow it away).

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Ron Swanson is a God amongst men. With Andy coming a close second.

I've also started talking like Chris (Rob Lowe's character from s3). I won't spoil it. You'll find out soon enough. And it's fantastic.

Parks is one of those great shows which inexplicably was never aired in the UK and it's hard to find on DVD.

Might have to start watching it now.

I wish Jean Ralphio was in it more.

But I really wish season 4 was on Netflix. :(

Friday evening Community/30 Rock/Parks and Rec is basically the highlight of my week.

I'm Ron strawberry floating Swanson.

When the current TV season is over I'll be diving straight into this. Probably at the expense of The Office

Just watched the first two episodes of this. Wasn't really impressed, but now I've read this thread and it turns out that the first season is the weakest.

And I know I'm going to love Ron. :lol: :wub:

Jerry: Hey, Mark. A little birdie told me that you have an unpaid parking ticket.
Mark: Well that's funny because a little birdie told me that your adoptive mother was arrested for marijuana possession.
Jerry: What?
Mark: You didn't know that, huh?
Jerry: I didn't know I was adopted.

That was an amazing episode. :lol: How are you finding S2 in comparison to the first?

I'm still really surprised that it still hasn't aired over here, but at least it's on Netflix.

Started watching this Sunday, absolutely loving it. Season 1 did feel a little weak but it ramped up with the first episode of Season 2. Already half way through the third season :mrgreen:

There aren't enough :wub:'s in the world to convey how I feel about Ron. He's more than a Legend or an Icon. He is, just simply

I'm about a few episodes into the third series now, just watched the Harvest Episode last night. Wonderful stuff.

I'm tempted to try this - especially as Rashida Jones is in it :wub: - but I'm put off by the inclusion of Aziz Ansari, who is desperately unfunny in everything I've seen him in so far.
