Parks and Recreation and Arrested Development

Reviewed by Cassidy Hammel (Library Staff)

This review will be posted for a while so, for context, Covid is still very much a concern right now and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. During stressful and challenging times, even just the theme song of a favorite show will help put me at ease. I’ve been rewatching Arrested Development and Parks & Recreation for the umpteenth time. If you are seeking brief, light-hearted shows where you can count on comedic relief, I recommend both of these. Arrested Development in particular has a lot of masked humor, foreshadowing and jokes that grow from one episode to the next. Even though I’ve seen it so many times, I continue to notice things I’ve somehow haven’t picked up before, it really just keeps giving. If you’d like another reference, BuzzFeed calls it, “The Cleverest Program on Television.”
