Parks and Recreation: Who Made the Comedy Grade This Week?

<i>Parks and Recreation</i>: Who Made the Comedy Grade This Week?

"Partridge" was great. I mean, of course we were going to love doped-up Ben -- given how good flu-stricken Leslie and human disaster Ben have been in the past, it only makes sense. The pacing in this episodes was fantastic, all of the storylines were fun and my only real complaint is that Parks and Recreation is never frickin' on, and I desperately want to watch a new episode every week instead of a seemingly random installment every first Thursday of the month, or whatever this schedule is. More, I say, more! On the bright side, there are still four episodes left this season, all of which are consecutive -- there's even two in one night on April 18! -- so I can stop my complaining and get to talking about how much I laughed last night. Until then, I'm not above suing the parents of whoever made up this stupid schedule for spawning a human turdburger.

<i>Parks and Recreation</i>: Who Made the Comedy Grade This Week?

I'll admit right now that I was already pretty biased going into "Bailout" -- Jason Schwartzman was my longtime high school crush (I wish I could tell you it was because of Rushmore or even Freaks and Geeks, but it actually spawned after Slackers) and I've been a fan of Jenny Slate's since before she was on Saturday Night Live. Also, hello: "Time After Time." I could totally understand an argument on why this installment could have felt repetitive or even like a filler episode (outside of Chris's dad-cision), but come on... we got two Sappersteins in one sitting. Let's get to grading.

TWoP 10: Things We’ll Miss About <I>Parks and Recreation</i>

One hand giveth, the other taketh away: While we're excited about Community coming back with new episodes on Thursday, that means that our beloved Parks and Recreation will go on a five-week hiatus. Sure, compared to, say, Mad Men (which took approximately 12 years between seasons, give or take), a little over a month is child's play, but we're still bummed. Season 4 has been so compelling that we don't know how we'll do without Pawnee and the excellence that comes with it. Here's what we've loved this year:
