Parks And Recreation is a great show.
I actually quite like season 1 for a couple of great moments like the dog poo fight and Leslie's haircut. That being said it really is a better show from season two onwards.
I would say it veers into self satire by the end and the peak is probably seasons 2&3 but on the whole it is one of the better comedies of the last decade or two.

Ron Swanson is top class, as is Jean Ralphio and his sister.

The greatest sitcom ending ever is easily "Still Game".
For a broad show that was never afraid to pander, it came up with the most beautiful ending I think could ever be done.
Wonderful.

Finished watching the 1980s mini-series, The Far Pavilions, which is based on the book of the same name. It is an "epic romance" set during the British Raj.

To say it is a naff 80s tv series, it was rather watchable, with a big budget for the period and set on location in India. I was surprised to see that even in the 1980s actors were still being "browned-up"; Christopher Lee and other white actors playing the main Indian characters.

It was fine. The characters were lovely. But for a show about the eternal conflict between good and evil, and the existential crisis of human existence, it seemed very low stakes.

Do a show where Larry The Cable Guy gets to make fun of the LGBTQ community, it's only fair.

There is no "our word" in LGBTQ.

That's okay. It did feel non consequential at times. I do remember having a strong reaction to the ending.

I'm going to give Parks and Recreation a try, though I've read the first season is rather naff.
I watched Scrubs throughout growing up, when I got around to the Season 8 it was on Netflix and I watched it thinking the real final season was Season 9, so I watched the finale all confused about why they were making a big deal about goodbyes and stuff if there's a whole other season afterwards. Then once I started Season 9 I nearly puked

Yeah, season 9 somewhat ruins the show's legacy.

I've watched season 1 of Parks and Recreation and I'm coming to the end of the second season. I'm enjoying the show; it started to find its feet at the end of the first season, and has carried on strong since. It has a charm to it that I find very appealing (not just Rashida Jones).

As Seanny mentioned, the chap that plays Ron Swanson is great.

I've watched the first couple of episodes of the sci-fi show, Haven; I'm undecided yet whether I will continue with it.

I'm going to start Falcon and the Winter Soldier, tomorrow, now that most of the show is available.

Never did bother to check out Parks and Rec, it feels like it was created in the wake of The Office and attempted to recreate the workplace mockumentary idea. Which is fine I guess, just didn't want to shift my allegiances over from one show to the other

I was late to Parks and Rec for the same reason but I eventually got there and was glad I did.

A very pleasant show.
