My Thoughts: 4 of 5
Coming off of last weeks “Dreamatroium” episode that might of been the best, Community pulled off a PERFECT comical rendition of “Law and Order” that is worth many rewatches.

30 Rock pulled out ALL the stops for this one and the whole cast showing why they are some of the best. This will make my top 5 list of favorite episodes to watch over and over again.

Parks and Recreation- 4×20 “The Debate” 9:30/8:30c

  • Debate with Bobby Newport.
  • Chris, Tom on spin control while Ron, April and Andy in charge of the party.
  • Anne broke up with Tom. Chris then tries to get back with her.
  • At the debate Bobby is such an idiot he makes Leslie look bad.
  • At the party the cable wasn’t paid for so instead of watching the debate Andy is reenacting movies to all the guests. Ron proceeds to climb the pole singing songs while stealing cable.
  • The largest candy maker and employer in Pawnee threatens to move if Bobby doesn’t win.
  • “How do we fix this town? I have no idea”- Bobby Newport
  •  Leslie proceeds with an inspirational attack speech, effectively whooping Bobby.
  • “Holy Shit Leslie that was awesome!”- Bobby Newport

My Thoughts: 4 of 5

Ron stole the show with his singing while climbing the telephone pole and Leslie’s speech at the end just shows the many sides of the show and how these characters have grown on us. Lets hope parks is around for MANY more years!
