Parks and Recreation is the not-so-distant cousin of The Office. It follows a similar 'mockumentary' camera shtick with frequent 'breaking the fourth wall' moments.
Like the Office, it is set in an obscure small town. However, instead of dealing with paper sales, this show revolves around...well... the Parks and Recreation department of Pawnee, Indiana. If you like the Office, you'll enjoy Parks and Rec (as the cool kids call it). Honestly, there are moments where I enjoy Park and Rec (see?) more than the Office.
Some of the biggest draws of the show: The adorable, endearing main character, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler, pictured above). The mustachioed man that puts most other men to shame, Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman, below). And, my personal favorite, Rashida Jones. The same thing about Ron Swanson but, you know, about women.
|Ron Swanson approves.|
