Have they ever mentioned on the show how old Anne Perkins is supposed to be, or if she's supposed to be the same age as Rashida Jones did they ever acknowledge the age difference between her and Chris Pratt?

 

Also, I just started dating a girl whose political views are more libertarian than Ron Swanson.  She's basically "we need to end all government support for the poor.  You either get a job and support yourself or you literally starve to death."  I'm scared to break up with her because she's so psycho.

Aaaaand Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe are leaving at midseason. Boo. No one try and tell me Anne is dispensable. Not hearing it. She is beautiful. Beautiful Anne.

She's 37 and he's 34.  Is that a big enough age difference that it should be noted?  I always got the impression that his character was a bit younger, but that was probably just because he acted like a kid while she was the responsible adult.

Damn, I never imagined Andy being older than like 23.  Like, Scott Pilgrim-aged, but American and therefore beefier and sort-of-rural and therefore droopier, like posture-wise.

 

Maybe a few years older, like almost Gideon-aged where if he tried to mack on Ramona it would be way wrong, but Kim might still give him a whirl just to raise eyebrows.

 

But, yeah.  That raises some questions about Anne.

Well that's how old Chris Pratt is.  I'm not sure how old Andy Dwyer is supposed to be.  ;)  Although a few seasons back when he was trying to determine if he could go out with April I think he said he was 29.

And her response when the poor resort to to crime to survive?I started watching the show on Netflix and I enjoy it. Though it took a season or two for the big laughs to start.

That's what I meant.  He was 29 in the season two finale, which would have made Ann 34.

If she's that much an extemist, couldn't you simply pretend to quit your job and "starve to death"?

And she just assumes the poor will peacefully starve to death and not fight back?

So I started watching this Sunday, and am up through "Christmas Scandal."  I'm having a great deal of fun, and Ron is my new role model for as long as I work for the government...

I signed up just to reply to this topic.  I don't catch many shows first run, but this has been my absolute favorite from season 2.

 

I'll be sad when Anne and Chris leave Pawnee, but season 6 really feels like it would be the last one.  It's never been huge in the ratings game, and I think NBC hired new execs that wanted to "broaden comedy appeal"

 

But if we get six seasons of a show that I love so dearly, I will be happy.

Why does no one watch this show?!

 

The one hour episode was great, but it only a 1.3 rating, down 0.4 from last year!

H2H against the Big Bang Theory is death for any comedy. Throw in the X-Factor in the same slot, and Parks was dead in the water.

 

The grosser part is the Michael J Fox show drawing twice as many viewers.

I don't watch much NBC, but have seen numerous MJ Fox Show spots. The only way I knew Parks and Rec. was back on was by checking my TV schedule app on my phone an hour before the show started.

When Kristen Bell showed up, I was hoping she would be reprising Uda Bengt.  I also liked Sam Elliott, was hoping new Ron would sitck around for a little while longer.

The last season started on Netflix and it has been hilarious. Before, I thought it was a good show with some solid laughs. But now I'm getting one big laugh each episode, I like that a lot of Pawnee has become a cartoon.

The name of the law firm last night?  Babip, Pecota, Vorp, and Eckstein.  Gotta love baseball nerd humor.

Also, Donna owned again. Hopefully Ann leaving gives us much much much more Donna. She can get it.

Where was Craig at?  Ron was GODLY last night.  Seriously his story with Ben was terrific.

So, this show is still really fucking good.  Councilman Jamm has been all types of great this season.  Am I crazy or does his Asian obsession seems right on the money?  I used to work with a guy who I swear either had a mail order bride/green card bride/ or an arranged marriage that was arranged by parents that hated her, and his personality has more in common with Jamm than seems possible.  Tom may have found his calling, making up retarded pitches to get the dim-witted population of Pawnee to support political projects.  I have a question, why are Ben and Leslie worried about not having jobs?  Leslie is still basically running the parks department, I'm sure they'd give her the job.  Doesn't Ben know that Chris is leaving?  He is probably the only person in Pawnee who has any experience in a city management role.  They are basically the two most qualified people in the entire city, if they can't get work no one can.
