This has to be one of my favourite comedy shows of all time! It's an absolute classic, and if you liked the first season this is a must see!!!
Parks and Recreation uses a documentary type style of filming, so the character's talk directly to camera as if they know it's all being filmed. I think that this really adds a nice touch, and gives opportunity for all those hilarious side glances to the camera.
One of the reasons I think it is so successful though would be that the characters themselves are so funny. I find it hard to choose a favourite, as they are all equally hilarious. Of course, there is the title character Leslie Knope, determined to do well in her government job, she is very motivated and doesn't let anyone get in her way. Also includes Ron Swanson, a no nonsense character, who hates government and loves meat. Sounds weird, but trust me it works, and you will not fail to find him funny. There's others obviously, the slightly dumb but lovable Andy, and the very sarcastic and dark April for starters. I could go on, but really they are all hilarious in different ways.
If you haven't yet watched the first season, then what are you doing reading this! Go watch it now! If you have already watched the first season and are unsure about whether to continue, I would say, what are you doing reading this! Go watch it!
In all seriousness, the series gets better, with more episodes to properly develop the character's and really get into the funny situations. Well worth the time to watch.
Parks & recreation is a funny comedy
Is like the style of the show "the office"
They do their thing then talk to a camera
I've watched it many times, is great comedy and you will enjoy it...I guarantee
