Reasons why Parks and Rec deserved an Emmy

- Set in small-town Indiana, still manages to have 40% of it’s ensemble cast be POC, and not one of them is a token either

- 40% of the cast are women. ¾ are POC. All of them are badasses. 

- Every single fucking episode is funny. Seriously. 

- Perd fucking Hapley. I can’t even explain, you just have to watch 

- Pawnee citizens holy hell 

- The flawless political commentary behind the Langman’s and the Male Men 

- The scene in Comeback Kid where Get On Your Feet is playing and they’re all struggling to walk on ice 

- Chris Traeger and his mental illness. They worked it in so that it was comedic, but if it glorified anything, it was asking for help and accepting it. 

- Okay just Chris in general 

- Gary Jerry Larry Terry Gary Gergich Gengurch Gergich 

- Donna, the character who is exactly who she needs to be throughout her life. She acknowledges the need to change her behavior occasionally, but it doesn’t dent her confidence one bit. 

- Ann Meredith Perkins, you beautiful sun-ray nurse. The best friend everyone needs. Quirky and grounded and intelligent. 

- THE FUCKING SAPERSTEINS 

- ESPECIALLY JEAN-RALPHIO 

- Everything Tom Haverford has ever said 

- Ben fucking Wyatt. I can’t even elaborate without crying and combusting. Much better nerd than any weasel from The Big Bang Theory. Feminist. Best Husband Ever. 

- ANYTIME BEN OR LESLIE ARE DRUNK HOLY SHIT 

- Cones of Dunshire and Requiem for a Tuesday 

- FUCKING ICE TOWN 

- April Blart, Mall Cop 

- April’s character development *heart eyes* 

- Andy and April’s love 

- Mouse Rat and hits like The Pit, Catch Your Dream, and - 5000 CANDLES IN THE WIND 

- LIL SEBASTIAN 

- Bert Macklin, FBI 

- Johnny and Johnathan Karate 

- Andy Dwyer, secret genius 

- Ron Swanson, the manliest man to ever man, owner of the world’s best character development, hater of Canada and vegans, beautiful beautiful man 

- Duke fucking Silver 

- I dig your groovy tunes man

- Ben and Leslie’s healthy, realistic, and beautiful relationship 

- Benslie proposal 

- Benslie wedding 

- Ben’s triplets freakout 

- the BOX 

- Amy Poehler plays the most amazing woman to ever grace any screen. Leslie Knope, a socially inept but selfless woman who dedicates her life to public service, her family, and her friends. Deeply flawed main character that wasn’t made lovable by her unfortunate but relatable love of sugar and hatred of vegetables, but instead by her love for others and thoughtfulness and work ethic and optimism. Food habits aside, her character flaws were acknowledged by the writers, her loved ones, and her. No one is an enabler for Leslie Knope’s bad behavior. When she does something shitty, she gets called on it and apologizes. But at the end of the day, hard work and positivity make a difference, and she achieves her dreams. 

- Positivity. The people on this show like each other. They believe in and support each other. They apologize when they’re wrong. They forgive when they’ve been wronged. They go out of their way to make lives better. And it is still funny.

Highlights from the Parks and Recreation Series Finale (A.K.A MY FEEEELLLSSS)

I finally watched season 7 of Parks and Rec and I am a hot mess of emotions right now. 

That finale tho…I was choking back tears the entire time I was watching it. 

Here are the highlights of the ep for me (there are a lot of gifs and none of them are mine):

  • Leslie getting her due as the main character on the show and seeing her get a moment with each of the characters where their connection is reaffirmed before it transitions into their flash forwards
  • April and Donna working together to create ‘Teach Yo-self"
  • Andy and April having a baby and naming him 'Jack O'Lantern’ which was a dual nod to Halloween and Chris Pratt’s own son
  • Also April putting on zombie make up before going into labour
  • Leslie’s relief when she heard April and Andy named their baby Jack and how she’s his godmother and when she rested her forehead on April’s and said, “Welcome to the team”.
  • Ron coming to Leslie for help finding a new career and Leslie finding the perfect job for him
  • Tom becoming a success by writing a book about failure
  • Garry/Jerry/Larry/Terry continually being mayor and living to be 100
  • Ben and Leslie being the touchstone for everyone and seeing how they managed to stay connected with all of their friends ten years into the future
  • Ben and Leslie being a power couple and both of them wanting to go for governor but Ben realizing that it means more to Leslie so he announces that she is going to run for governor
  • Ann and Chris guest-starring on the show and Leslie pushing Ben aside and repeatedly saying, “Ann’s here! Ann’s here!” and re-establishing Ann and Leslie’s friendship as one of the best female friendship on any television show EVER
  • The inclusion of Craig and Jean Ralphio’s flash-forwards and Jean-Ralphio faking his own death only to ruin it with his singing
  • Leslie’s speech about doing work that’s worthwhile and doing it with your friends
  • Leslie’s reaction to having a library named after her
  • Basically the whole damn thing was perfection and it was pure joy to watch each and every character be happy and successful and it was so emotionally satisfying that I think I need to either watch the episode again immediately or go and rewatch the entire series

For the meme: Anne/Diana, Marilla/Rachel, Anne/Jerry :)

Okay but these are all honestly the best BROTPS. I love all these friendships soo much and they’re one of the many reasons why I adore the show. I mean really props to the show for giving me Anne and Jerry which was the BROTP that I never knew how badly I needed.

Anne with an E

I’m a huge fan of the first book (only one I read) and the 80s movies. (I know, I need to get the other books and read them! I’m planning to!)

So, new series on Netflix… I watched all seven episodes and my thoughts:

1) Love the cast! This Anne is perfect, exactly the book’s description of Anne. While I adore Megan Follows as Anne, she wasn’t as thin and freckled as the book describes Anne. Same goes for Diana. Both visions of Gilbert won my heart. I adore this Marilla and Mathew, but Colleen Dewhurst and Richard Farnsworth will always be my Marilla and Mathew. Rachel Lynde of the 80s movies was funnier than this Rachel, but I like the dynamic between Marilla and Rachel in the show more. I also love how the show gives Ruby and Josie more to do and focuses on the other kids at school.

2) Love Jerry!!! More Jerry! I think Jerry is gonna end up being my boy the same way Xander Harris and Chandler Bing are my precious boys and if anyone disses Jerry, it’s them against my wrath!!! I see Jerry as Anne’s brother (the way Xander ended up with Buffy and Willow on BtVS) and I have a feeling he’d be attracted to Diana. 

3) Marilla and Gilbert’s father did have a past, that’s acknowledged in the books and the 80s movies, but I love how the show fleshed it out more and showed us a flashback of them. 

4) I don’t mind a lot of the changes and added stories, however, I don’t like the melodrama added to the show. Like how Anne runs away in despair once every episode. It gets boring. I also hated the second episode with great passion, it almost made me drop the show. Why did we need to have Anne sent back to the asylum? It was unnecessary drama. I hated every second of it, and I can’t believe that Marilla would send Anne back ALONE, even if she was so mad at her. If she wouldn’t do it, she’d get Mathew or someone else to take Anne back. I liked how the whole broach incident was handled in the book and movie, way more realistic and it was dealt with in two minutes. Not a whole episode. 

I’m gonna do a movies vs show post later. If anyone wants to ask or discuss the new Netflix show Anne with an E with me, please PM me!
