Last night I watched the first two episodes of the NBC show Parks and Recreation at Hulu.com. I’m a fan of Michael Shur (AKA Mose Shrute or Ken Tremendous) and he’s one of the creators, so I thought I’d check it out.
The show is a mock documentary. I like the cast, which is headlined Amy Poehler. Others include Paul Schneider (I liked his character in Lars and the Real Girl, and in Parks and Rec his character is very promising), Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, and Nick Offerman.
I’m not sure if the first two episodes would have grabbed my attention as solidly as they did if I had not had a preconceived bias toward it. Admittedly I plan to watch the entire first season no matter how much I like or dislike it just because Mike Schur is involved in the project.
If you haven’t seen Parks and Recreation yet you should check it out: Hulu Page.
