Leviathyn.com | I try very hard to explain to my friends why I like Parks & Rec. Most of them can’t stand the show. While watching the season 5 premiere, I finally figured it out. Parks & Rec is a TV show that almost exactly mirrors my friends if someone recorded everything we did and said. I guess by watching Parks & Rec I get to see an outside view of my friends and I. It’s a really cool experience and at the same time I get to watch a great show.
