I’ve watched 112 episodes of Parks and Recreation over the past few weeks. That’s six complete seasons. Because maternity leave provides a unique opportunity to binge watch NetFlix, on your iPhone, in a dark nursery, while feeding/changing/rocking/dressing a baby every two or three hours.
This show is like the offspring of 30 Rock and Seinfeld, after being raised in the county government office I worked in after college.
Yes, I worked for the county government after college–it was an
absurd interesting career launchpad for a 21 year old.
I feel qualified to confirm that this show portrays EXACTLY what government work is like, only it’s slightly less funny and with fewer hunting trips. And there was no Chris Pratt.
