If bored on a cold night, check out Parks and Recreation

It has gotten cold outside and we all know what that means, sitting inside watching TV. If you are fortunate enough to have Netflix, I have just the show for you.

Parks and Recreation aired on NBC but was put on Netflix. If you like the show The Office then you will love Parks and Recreation. It has a single camera look to it, as if someone is filming with a camcorder. The show has an amazing cast including Aziz Ansari, Amy Poehler, and Chris Pratt.

The basis of Parks and Recreation is the life of the workers in the parks department of the town Pawnee, Indiana, a fake town in a real state. Amy Poehler plays Leslie Knope, the upbeat, enthusiastic parks department worker. She puts a little too much into her job while her boss, Ron Swanson, strives to make their department as ineffective as possible. Throughout the show you see the cast go through some pretty funny situations.

My favorite thing about Parks and Recreation is that you don’t need to watch the episodes in order. Anyone could pick up the remote and start watching at any time.

If you’re looking for a good laugh to get you through the winter slump, the seven seasons of Parks and Recreation should help you out.
