Parks and Recreation has established a rich setting through the seasons, which allows the writers to really put the characters in familiar but funny situations. Faced with the fundamentalists, Leslie defends Jerry’s painting which depicts her as a bare-breasted goddess and Tom as a fat baby. It all makes for a fun time, especially when the porn star shows up and joins Leslie’s side, partially confirming what the fundamentalists think. And best of all, Leslie gets the last laugh even though the painting was supposed to be burned.
April and Andy getting married may have been very sudden and they’re as dopey as ever. Still, under Ben’s instruction, they realize that with marriage comes a needed maturity and they buy some of the necessary items.
Leslie and Ben are still circling each other like they have been since this thing started. Nothing is new about it, but it doesn’t take up too much of the episode, so the repetitiveness doesn’t bother me. However, it is reaching the point where you either want the writers to make a move or just not approach the subject.
