Ron Swanson: When people get a little too chummy with me I like to call them by the wrong name to let them know I don’t really care about them.
Settle down in Pawnee, Indiana with Golden Globe winner Amy Poehler in Parks and Recreation: The Complete Series on Blu-Ray, the smart, irreverent, heartfelt series from Primetime Emmy Award-winning producers Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill) and Michael Schur (The Office, Saturday Night Live).
Synopsis: Join small-town civil servant Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) for every awkward strategy meeting, kooky idea and delicious bite of waffle as she strives to make City Hall a better place. By her side are her beloved—if quirky— colleagues: the deadpan Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman and his moustache!), apathetic April (Aubrey Plaza), rockstar-in-his-own-mind Andy (Chris Pratt who has been announced as the voice of Mario in the new Super Mario Bros movie due for release in 2022), trendsetter Tom (Aziz Ansari), best friend Ann (Rashida Jones), smart-mouthed Donna (Retta), loyal Ben (Adam Scott) and the always energetic Chris (Rob Lowe). Oh, and Jerry (Jim O’Heir)… or is it “Larry”?
Leslie Knope: Pawnee’s library department is the most diabolical ruthless bunch of bureaucrats I’ve ever seen. They’re like a biker gang. But instead of shotguns and crystal meth, they use political savvy… and shushing.
Having run from 2009 – 2015, the show has a massive IMDB Rating of 8.6/10, and a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Parks and Recreation was nominated for an astonishing 76 awards throughout its run including sixteen Primetime Emmy Award nominations, (twice as a comedy series and twice for writing) and four Golden Globe Awards.
Featuring a deep bench of comedic talent and guest stars from the world of politics, including now US President Joe Biden (Leslie’s perfect man would have “the brains of George Clooney in the body of Joe Biden”), Senator John McCain, Michelle Obama (hailed “the most promising actor in all of community theatre” in The Guardian) and first woman to become the US Secretary of State –Madeleine Albright. Celebrities include Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Werner Herzog, Josh Groban, Questlove, Will Arnett, Megan Mullally (as Ron Swanson’s manipulative and over sexed ex-wife. Megan is married to Nick Offerman who plays Ron Swanson in real life) and Bill Murray (as The Mayor of Pawnee). Plus Season 6 sees Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy playing former lead singer of fictional band Land Ho!, who re-unite for a “Unity Concert”. The concert also features Yo Le Tengo, The Decemberists and Ginuwine.
Leslie Knope: I want to be President someday, so I have not smoked marijuana. I ate a brownie once. At a party in college. It was kind of indescribable really. I felt like I was floating. It turns out that there wasn’t any marijuana in it, it was just an insanely good brownie.
