Parks and Rec series finale forgot what it made it so good — a little sour with the sweetness
As Willa Paskin notes, “Parks and Recreation isn’t such a sweet show because it lives in a vacuum where nastiness, selfishness, and stupidity don’t exist, as they more or less didn’t in the finale. It’s such a sweet show because it exists exactly in the midst of such things and its characters try to rise above the muck and their own natures anyway, even when they don’t succeed. The finale had no hint of that muck. Luckily, there are 123 other episodes of this great series to balance it out.” PLUS: In praise of flash-forward finales, watch Amy Poehler in a 1995 pilot, and Mike Schur answers burning series finale questions.
