Amy Poehler shows each week on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” that she’s more than deserving of her Golden Globe win for comedic acting. While the entire cast of the show does its fair share of heavy lifting, it is Poehler’s Leslie Knope that is the center of gravity that keeps all of the characters moving. Tonight’s all new episode finds Leslie returning to the Parks department after being recalled from her position on the City Council.
Here’s the NBC preview for tonight’s episode.
Upon returning to the Parks and Rec department, Leslie struggles to reintegrate herself into her old stomping grounds.
The preview for tonight’s episode features the obstacles Leslie will face in coming back to work. The department she left is far different now. Can she still bend them to the will of the Knope?
It has been a great week for Michael Schur, the co-creator of “Parks and Recreation” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”. The Golden Globes conferred legitimacy onto the ratings challenged “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, and cemented Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope as one of the funniest sitcom characters of our time. Without the support of the critics neither show would have made it this far. Hopefully this new exposure will guarantee the shows the sizable audience they so richly deserve.
