Parks and Recreation: Christmas Scandal (2009)

I think this is the second episode of Parks and Recreation I've seen, but I can't actually remember the first, so it's possible I'm imagining it and this is actually the first.

Either way, this is a really bizarre show.

I can't decide whether or not I enjoyed watching it. The show felt very character-driven, so I expect it's better the more you see it.  Not that I have much interest in testing that theory, mind you.

The plot focused on an imagined sex scandal involving the main character and a local politician. Most of the humor revolved around the absurdity of a small town trying to pretend it's a big city, and it worked most of the time.

This one was more set at Christmas than it was Christmas-themed. For what it's worth, the backgrounds contained plenty of decorations, and a few of the B-plots were holiday related. Still, if you're looking for something to fill you with Christmas cheer, you'd best look elsewhere.


  1. It is better the more you see it. For my money, it one of the best comedies on TV now that 30 Rock has jumped the shark.
    For the record, I remember and enjoyed this episode, but have no recollection of it being set at Christmas.
