Parks and Recreation (Season 2) (2009)

This second season of NBC’s juggernaut hit is where it truly finds its footing. The writing is just as strong as it was, but the actors and pace have relaxed a little. Amy Poehler in particular seems to have found her groove in her leading role, while supporting performers like Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari and newcomer Retta have meaty comedic roles that they know exactly how to play. There are standout episodes like “Pawnee Zoo,” “Beauty Pagent,” and “Leslie’s House” peppered throughout, and it’s also great to see that the show can take its characters and situations away from the everyday office setting and still maintain its unity and consistency.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
