Happy ‘Parks and Recreation’ Day, guys!

What’s on the telly, you ask? Why, Parks and Recreation, of course…finally!

Though way lame, NBC decided to shaft Parks to mid-season last year to make way for the new and absolutely despicable Outsourced. Although Outsourced is still in the running to become America’s Next Top Comedy, NBC did keep its word to our favorite Rec department, and for that, I commend them!

If you haven’t seen the show, or watched some of Season 1 only to leave it behind, I highly suggest you check it out tonight. Here are 3 fantastical reasons why you should be watching Amy Poehler and her gang of department misfits.

1) Because it’s way better than The Office. With the Pam/Jim tension gone, The Office has struggled to keep this reviewer vested in its story lines. Less office pranks and more Andy = a show at the end of its run. And let’s not even talk about Carell’s departure again. Consider that horse beaten to death.

2) Because Ron Swanson is one of the best comedic characters currently on TV. Nick Offerman plays Leslie Knope’s deadpan superior with ease. And who can resist that sexy mustache?

3) Because of this video (and, yanno, Rob Lowe and Adam Scott have been added to the cast). R.I.P. Party Down, but viva la Parks and Rec!

Season 3 starts tonight at 9:30pm on NBC. Be there or be square. Foo.



R.I.P. ‘Party Down’

If you’re my friend on Facebook, follow The Winz on Twitter, or currently reside in my cell phone contacts, then you already know: I’m taking this hit pretty hard. Starz has decided to not pursue further production of Party Down. It’s axed. Canned. Outro.


The show revolved (Past tense. Oof) around a catering company and the quirky characters it employs. Led by Ron Donald and his ‘Ron Donald Dont’s’, Party Down manages to screw up every job they get, ensuring that the only tip they’ll receive is a comment card full of hate filled feedback.

Season 2 wasn’t as strong as it’s predecessor, though the Lynch-less season did have some amazing cameos – Steve Guttenberg and Kristen Bell for starters. Witty writing, a cast with brilliant comedic timing – the entire crew should be applauded.

We’ll miss you, Party Down.
