Comparisons to the office are natural, but it moves away from that as time goes on. They still do some of the camera gags or whatever, but it really isn't a mockumentary anymore.

Season 2 started off weak for me, the first episode where she has a gay marriage for two penguins wasn't funny at all. The show improved though around episode 5 I want to say, and remained awesome for the remainder of the season. Season 3 is good all the way through as is season 4 so far.

I don't know you're particular tastes though. Just trust me, hardly anyone likes season 1 of Parks and Rec, it stunk. The common statement in among fans is, as doombug said " it's a totally different show".

Plus I love the fact that Leslie Knope isn't an idiot. She's actually competent and usually successful at her job.

Gawd damn that was good. Every cliche Law & Order ever had it's 20+ years was squeezed into this half hour and I loved every minute of it, especially...

The Lenny Briscoe (not Caruso) fight to close the opening scene
Leslie Hendrix playing the medical examiner
Fat Neal PERFECTLY channeling ever office schlub L&O ever had
Michael Ironside's "I'm telling your mom".
The Chinese takeout containers on Anne & Jeff's desk
The hot dog stand

I half expected Sam Waterston to cameo.

And of course the nod to Dick Wolf at the end (who's reaction to this episode would be great to find out about). "Basic Lupine Urology" :lol:

Ah, I was wondering why there was a distinct lack of sunglasses.

Yeah I hate the Office with a passion. I'll give Season 2 a try I guess, or maybe Season 3 if the first half of Season 2 sucked?

Ask PUnchy where you can start he's a bigger fan than me. I'd still give Season 2 a try, Episode 7 is probably the first real standout episode for me personally, but there is some good stuff prior to that too.

This was a good ep, unlike the Ken Burns parody, this one was actually put to good use, and even though I've never seen any Law & Order it was funny on it's own.

Can't believe Starburns is dead.

I liked the Ken Burns parody. At a certain point, you have to accept it's a network show and no matter how weird it is, they'd never let them go all the way (only photos and interviews) with that.

This was probably my favorite episode of the season so far. We've been without Michael Williams for too long.

Not going far enough wasn't my problem with the Ken Burns ep, my problem was that it was just Ken Burns parody for the sake of it, they didn't use it for any good jokes, most of the best jokes in that episode could have happened without the parody. It was lazy.

This one wasn't, the jokes were about the parody.

Also, a man has to have code.

You're missing the point, there are so many ways that episode could have sucked and not worked, that nit-picking over the one or two ways it could have been better is just sad. Why can't you just enjoy seeing these characters on screen together?
