With Thanksgiving just a day away (the unofficial start of the holiday season and a slippery slope into the end of the year) we thought we would turn our attention to some of the other women in our lives that we’re thankful for – the actresses, writers, politicians, musicians, artists, activists and game-changers who are making our lives better every day by entertaining us, inspiring us and proving to us that women run the world.
One of Parks and Rec’s greatest strengths is its ability to make us fall in love with the characters of Pawnee. Each episode is a delightful little trip to a magical land populated by harmless weirdos, lovable losers, and well-meaning workers, and each time we leave with a new set of imaginary friends. And with tonight’s 100th episode, we figured it was as good a time as any to celebrate these bit players. Of all the wonderful people we’ve met in the Parks universe, these are my favorites – but it was really hard to choose.
