Tonight’s episode was pure gold, tons of great moments. Favorite parts were Jerry’s breast feeding speech and the Ron montage at the end. I like that they explained how Andy lost weight and why he’ll be gone for a few episodes. Great episode, and this could be Amy Poehler’s episode submission next year, but she’ll have better work to do most likely.September 26, 2013 at 7:31 pm #303394
Fantastic episode. Good god, Amy Poehler is amazing.
Terrific showcase for Nick Offerman also.September 26, 2013 at 7:36 pm #303395
Loved this. So so much. Maybe I just missed this show a lot, but tonight felt like they were on fire. I hope this is an indication of good things to come for this season. Poehler was an obvious standout, but also a great episode for Nick Offerman and Aubrey Plaza. They’re definitely setting it up so April and Leslie can bond once Ann and Chris leave. After tonight, I am incredibly excited for this season.September 26, 2013 at 7:42 pm #303396
Nick Offerman was very strong this episode, he needs to get nominated. Aubrey Plaza was also strong, but as much as I would love it, I don’t think she can get a nomination. If she turns out to be very strong all season and NBC makes a big push maybe she could get nominated?September 26, 2013 at 9:35 pm #303397
I didn’t like this episode as much as most here. It seemed like it had too many heartfelt moments and not enough laughs. The Tom stuff dragged a lot and we’ve seen Leslie send Ron on a few trips before. I’m glad to have the show back, but this wasn’t a great episode.

There were good things going on here but it was poorly paced and everything felt not connected. I know London was the main storyline, but the episode tried to do too much and its like the writers felt like it could since it was an hour episode. This is definitely not a submission episode for Amy, it was too much of an ensemble episode. It could be a series submission, but I hope there is better to come. I love this show but I don’t think it’s the type of comedy the Emmys will go for. It clearly would have had more nominations everywhere if it was.
The cast is really great. It’ll be weird to not have Ann (Chris has had moments but always felt a little out of place on the show), but really all the characters who bring the most laughs per scene are sticking around.September 27, 2013 at 4:52 am #303399
I actually don’t think this episode would be that bad as a submission for Amy. She had plenty of great moments in it, and all episodes are ensembly, so I don’t think that would be a problem. Plus, it has the benefit of being a double episode. Besides, it’s not like she has to worry too much about submissions – it’s not like they’re ever gonna vote for her anyways.
This might have been one of Nick Offerman’s best episodes ever, imo. In terms of pure comedy, nothing will beat the Tammy episodes, but he had a lot of heart and even some character development in this episode. I’d love to see him take down one of the Modern Family guys and get into the supporting actor category.
So many funny lines and moments. I legitimately LOL’ed several times.
Jerry drinking the milk was so creepy and hilarious.
Chris Pratt is so funny, and I wish he’d get more recognition.
I know some people find them annoying, but I love Jean-Ralphio and Mona Lisa. One of my favorite lines of the episode was when Jean-Ralphio said. “My dad doesn’t give up on anything, except for my mom. When she turned 30 he was like, ‘Get OUT!'”September 27, 2013 at 3:57 pm #303400
This was not brilliant as everyone is saying, thats my opinion of course, I thought it was fine , the best scenes being Andy and British Andy, I missed this show. That “Sincerely , Satan” killed me.September 27, 2013 at 8:50 pm #303401
So happy Parks is back. I thought it was a very funny episode with Andy’s scenes definitely being the highlight. Andy has been my favorite character for awhile.October 3, 2013 at 8:11 am #303402
Tonight’s episode: The Pawnee-Eagleton Tip Off Classic
Leslie, Ben, and Chris visit Eagleton to discuss finacial matters with city counceler Ingrid de Forest. Meanwhile, Ann takes April to vet school orientation and Ron works to “get off the grid”.
What’s interesting is that Kristen Bell is guest starring as Ingrid de Forest in both this episode and the next one (Dopplegangers). Could we be having another two parter here?October 3, 2013 at 5:42 pm #303403
Solid episode. Not as good as last week but I enjoyed it. IMO the Ron and April storylines were more interesting than the main one. I’d give this episode a B. I expect good things from next week’s doppleganger episodeOctober 3, 2013 at 8:42 pm #303404
I wasn’t impressed by this episode.
The entire April/Ann subplot fell flat — every single joke missed. Ron going ‘off the grid’ and Leslie ripping into Eagleton are things we’ve seen before. I hope this season picks up next week because, inexplicably, I preferred TBBT two weeks in a row.

i missed Andy.October 4, 2013 at 9:01 am #303406
This was good. It was more about plot progression than being overtly hilarious, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. Ron’s efforts to get odd the grid were my favorite part, him yelling at Tom’s tablet seemed both antiquated and perfectly logical. I guess I just never get tired of April insulting Ann (or anyone insulting Guy Fieri). I was shocked at the solution to the Eagleton money crisis, and while we’ve heard Leslie insult Eagleton many times before, Kristen Bell as Ingrid de Forest had some great lines and moments. I can’t wait to see how that plays out next week.
