Sneak Peek: the season premiere of Parks and Recreation

I'll have to check some past episodes, but I think this is one of the first times if not the first time I've laughed out loud at something from Parks and Recreation. It features Amy Poehler turning something her boss says into a reason to sing an entire rap song.

I love how it goes on a little longer than you expect and gets a bit surreal. Making the coffee in the middle of it is a nice touch.

I really love me some Amy Poehler, but I can't sit through "Parks and Recreation." She deserves so much better than this dreck.

I only watch it for Rashida Jones.

The first couple episodes were painful to watch, mostly because Amy Poehler seemed to be doing a full-on impression of Michael Scott. It got much better, though. It made me laugh out loud several times, even in the summer's reruns.

I smiled, so THERE previous commenters!

I didn't laugh a lot during season 1 admittedly. One notable scene is when Rashida's boyfriend is having his cast removed, and remotes & ipods are stuck to his leg. I don't give up on shows because of seeing 1 clip though, like my compatriots here. Might as well watch season 2, because it'll likely be a situation of when 30 Rock suddenly got good last year, and blew me away.

It happens. When you come close to getting canceled, you step things up.

The only time I watched Parks I didn't find it funny at all. It tries too hard and fails. I really am suprised it has lasted this long.

I didn't even crack a smile. This show is awful.
