Leslie Knope is front and centre as the featured image of this week’s distraction – because she is the best – but also because, sadly, Parks and Recreation is over. frankly i have referenced treat yo self far too many times on this blog to not dedicate an entire post to Parks & Rec, but this introductory paragraph will have to do.
i actually started watching the show as a mid week distraction of sorts, just a filler for couch time. but as it got past that bumpy first season (remember how annoying Leslie used to be?!) it quickly became one of my favourite shows. i always worried that it was going to be cancelled before it reached a satisfactory conclusion, but somehow they managed to hang in there for seven awesome seasons. perhaps it’s bizarre to say, but i’m so happy to know the characters are in a good place! Jerry / Larry / Terry / Garry’s ending really made me laugh.
i’m going to miss them. any new favourite shows i should check out to help fill my couch time?
