    A (possible deleted) scene from tomorrow night's US episode of Parks and Recreation in which Patton Oswalt delivers a 8-min 'improvised' pitch for the next Star Wars film.

    I've been watching this on and off on Netflix. Think I'm on season 3, but don't really have the same appetite for it as I did for the early seasons of The US Office. I do like Amy Poehler and the guy that plays Andy and Ron Swanson, not too fussed about the rest of them. It feels like it's missing a Dwight Schrute.

    stick with it ... there is quite a lot of development in the characters lives/careers (I love all of them) .. and some excellent subtle political satire

    I was only three quarters of the way through season 2, not 3 as I thought. I stuck with it though and have to say I'm well into it now at Season 3 episode 16. I can't be the only guy that thinks Ron Swanson is a hero and for me the absolute scene stealer is Jean-Ralphio, he cracks me up. April is also hilarious so I watched Aubrey Plaza's interviews on youtube, and you don't see such deadpan delivery too often from an American.

    Glad I stuck with it now.

    Yep, continuing straight on from the end of Season 4's weekly double-bills. They already confirmed this back in June, along with the news that Seasons 6 and 7 (the final season) will air together on Dave next Summer.

    Only just discovered Parks and Rec through Amazon Prime but boy am I glad I did.

    I think it really takes off by Season 2, due to the aforementioned character development. By S2 I think you're right behind the characters, even Gary/Gerry/Larry. However, my absolute new TV hero is Ron Swanson almost everything he says is a gem and scene-stealer.

    I think it's the best ensemble comedy for years with a fantastic chemistry making it an enjoyable combination of satire and colleagues/friends relationship humour. The retooling of it for Season 2 along with the
    addition of Chris Traeger and Ben Wyatt at the end of the season (combined with the removal of Mark Brendanawicz, a fairly pointless character)
    was a masterstroke.

    So that's 22 + 22 + 13 episodes in total for next year, so hopefully returns quite early in the year

    Season 5 finally makes its UK debut on Dave on Sunday (21st Feb) from 11pm-12am, with eps 1-2 (of 22). A bloody excellent season!

    I can't believe season 5 is only just being aired in the UK.

    3 1/2 years after US broadcast.

    This is why so many use Unblock US and similar - I've now finished Parks and Rec on Netflix but this and The Office have been badly overlooked by UK broadcasters.

    The BBC had it, and I think offloaded it on to their commercial arm which half owns UKTV, shame on them (either for ditching or offloading it)

    REMINDER ... on Dave tonight 11pm-12am

    Btw, Amy was on The Jonathan Ross Show last Saturday (13th Feb, S10 ep7), along with Sacha Baron Cohen (as himself), Stephen Fry and Romesh Ranganathan - still available on demand

    Amy Poehler Nearly Ruins Jon Hamm's SNL...


    Though not there to plug Parks & Rec, they did talk about it but, rather bizarrely, neither knew what UK channel it might be on ... so nice work Dave/UKTV!

    I've waited a loooooooong time for this to be aired. Alongside Veep, it's my favourite US comedy. I can't believe I didn't source it anywhere in the meantime. It just slipped from my memory.

    Good opening 2 episodes anyway. I believe they are showing Season 6 straight after it as well. So it's going to run through till the summer.

    Most likely (final) season 7 too (only 13 eps, so just a further 6-7 weeks)

    That's sweet, gives me something to look forward to each week for a good while then. I was toying with just buying the boxset (I may still do in time), but once I heard it was coming to Dave, I decided to hold off. Never realised they had the rights to Season 7 too.
