Leslie broke up with Ben awhile ago, so that she could run for public office (since their office romance would be an embarrassing skeleton in her closet). So this week Ben told her that their current project would be the last one that he would work on with her, because working with her is too painful for him. So Leslie decided that the project needed to take FOREVER so that she could continue to spend time with him. She obstructed, and obstructed, and obstructed some more, and stirred the pot and then had a town hall meeting, after having planted ideas for things that citizens could complain about (the "project" is a new park - LOL!) so that it would take still longer. But perversely, the citizens choose not to complain and then lose interest, and get up and leave the town hall meeting. Leslie pretty much admits to the camera that when she wants them to complain, they have nothing to say - LOL!

Ben gets the project done and tells Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) that this is his last project with Leslie, and cuts the ribbon on the "park" that is about the size of a closet (LOL!) and walks away. Leslie sees that he isn't going to let her drag the project out. She tells Ben she doesn't want to end their relationship, and they kiss and make up.

But doesn't the ridiculous obstruction and the pot-stirring remind you of anyone? Congress, maybe? Hmmm....

Here's a link to this week's show. I'm not sure how long it will stay on the NBC site:

Oh, and on watching this a second time, there's also a recurring theme of sexual harrassment / retaliation that is likewise suspiciously timely.

Their intensity and the superficiality of deciding that they needed to break up their relationship made it apparent IMHO that they would be back together, probably soon.

Assuredcw, you make note of a few themes being timely, relating to current issues. So they are, but this is found in other TV shows as well.

Hi Fred!

I like Saturday Night Live, too (oh, that's right, Amy Poehler was on that show also, wasn't she?).

Yes, other shows do it, too. But this show is special to me. I like to encourage people who stick their necks out, rather than hanging back so somebody can chop it off, you know?

I really like the show, too, and I like that you started a thread that promotes it. It is I think out there on the cutting edge referring to issues, using very entertaining humor, which is one thing I find is making it that likable.

You kind if lost me with your meaning when saying "hanging back so somebody can chop it off", though.

Here's the link to this week's show (it will only be available until sometime in January):

Parks and Recreation - The Trial of Leslie Knope - Video - http://www.nbc.com

The themes are internet privacy and romantic relationships between government officials. You might have to watch it twice to catch everything.

I pretty much knew, as I had said, that Ben and Leslie would be together again. The makers might have figured out it was foreseeable, though, they threw a loop, Ben losing his job for it. I did not see that coming. Now I wonder if it will change the dynamic.

I'm impressed with the writing on this show. If Ben really is leaving, they've got something up their sleeves to fill this in, I'm sure. I really, really enjoy this show!

I enjoy it a lot and I want to keep up. But my VCR is not going to work for me and I will need to be involved somewhere such that I will miss it this time. That is a big disappointment to me, I don't like that I will miss out on anything in it.
