Parks & Recreation…

A funny or not-so-funny take on parks is coming to prime-time. A new show Parks & Recreation debuts on NBC tonight, that seems to be kind of like “The Office” in its mockumentary style set in a fictional small town parks and recreation department. Some park and recreation employees or citizen advocates might find it unfunny, but they may also find it satirically well done. I guess we’ll see what’s in store.  Clips in the above link.

  1. I’ve seen the first two episodes of the show and it’s more about poking fun of city government than actual “parks and recreation.” We’ll have to see what NBC has in store for future episodes.

  2. My blog just did a review of the show. You should check it out.
