    Off to a great start. This was hilarious! Especially Ron’s barbecue.

    “Tom is smart and loyal. He’s basically a dog. A dog we’re going to cook, chew and swallow.”
    “Attention youngsters. Which one of you will help me drain the blood of this animal? If you do a good job, I give you the bladder and you can blow it up for a fun play ball.”

    Oh my gawd, I died.
    This is already a tape for Offerman. But I hope he has an overall better season than last year.

    I thought this was a fairly safe, boderline lame season opener. Not bad, just nothing special. The problem I’ve always had with P&R is when it’s not at its best it’s just a decent show, which is what it was throughout most of last season.

    Decent start. Nothing too great. I was hoping the Parks department arc this season to be something different than cleaning up a river… reminds me too much of that ditch from season one already.

    Nice start. Everyone was great in this episode, even Rob Lowe. I hope that Nick Offerman can break through this year. He really deserves just as much noticei as Poehler.

    Here is my review of last night’s episode. Which was a great return and possible tape for Offerman.

    I thought last night’s episode was a very good one. I’m not sure what some of the other posters expect…

    It was well written, the characters have a warmth that no other comedies have and it was hilarious. Ron’s barbecue was a great vehicle for his red-meat (no pun intended) libertarian viewpoints to shine through. I thought Poehler was great in the episode as well as she tries to balance all of her excitement over the national monuments with the sadness that she’ll be leaving Ben very soon. Andy was probably the highlight of the episode for me: typical slapstick, National treasure map, random hookups with April and his determination to use “amalgam”.

    (A-) and still the best comedy on the air, in my opinion…

    I also really liked this. Offerman did more here than he did in the entirety of last season. For me, the biggest laugh may have actually come from Chris, with his reference to Jerry accidentally forwarding his bank statement to everyone and how it was “classic and depressing.” Ha! Also really liked Donna cracking up over how the pig was named Tom. The abrupt end of the Tom-Ann relationship was my only complaint – it’s almost as if the writers realized that their pairing was a mistake and decided to bail on it as quickly as possible. It would have been nice to see them pull off that charade (pretending as if they were still together) for another episode or two. But that’s a small quibble in the scheme of things.

    I thought it was pretty good. I was definitely expecting more with it being the season opener. I hope the rest of the episodes are better because with last night’s ratings I don’t know what’s gonna happen to NBC’s comedies. All three failed pretty badly, specially Up All Night which of course is very much cancelled now. When 30 Rock comes back it’ll be yet another ratings disaster not to mention Whitney and Community on fridays.

    I think that Parks will live to see another season, they’re not going to loose 30 Rock, The Office, Up All Night and Parks too, maybe it’ll come back, but it’s all looking pretty bad right now.

    Ron’s employee appreciation barbecue disaster stole this episode. I wanted to see as much of those scenes as possible. Nick Offerman was hilarious all through them, and the ensemble’s great interplay throughout (especially once they saw “Tom” and realized what Ron had in mind for him). I liked Tom and Ann pretending to be together b/c of Donna’s bet with Tom. Retta is a national treasure. Leslie’s scenes in D.C. dragged. The cameos from the real-life politicians were good, and Adam Scott nails whatever he’s given. April/Andy scenes were too short, and mopey Leslie is kind of a downer. She sort of gets her mojo back with her river cleanup project, but I was hoping for much more from that thread. Decent premiere. Glad to have the gang back again.

    Love the show. Love it to death.

    But am I the only one who can’t stand Andy? Can he just go away?
