It’s not a “Parks and Recreation” GIF, but this is how every fan of the series should be feeling after watching that finale:
I still can’t believe it’s over. I binged the first six seasons last spring, and now I’m kicking myself for not having more time with what quickly became my favorite TV comedy. Thank Li’l Sebastian this show is immortalized on Netflix. I don’t want to live in a world where I go a week without seeing Ron Swanson’s mustache or April Ludgate’s scowl.
The Emmy Awards used the hype surrounding Oscar week to mask its big announcement about reforming its categories. In addition to revamping what’s considered a mini-series and expanding its comedy and drama categories from six to seven nominees, it also set a strange precedent for what is now considered a comedy and a drama.
Before I dive into this week’s episode, I’d like to address the inconsistency of success in TV murders. (Warning: Spoilers to follow) What I mean by that is, how does the “Scandal” gang kill people and dispose of their bodies on the reg without raising the slightest suspicion, while police find Sam Keating’s body in approximately three days? Remember when Jake killed those reporters and then literally dug a random hole and buried them in the middle of the day? How did that work? Or what about this week’s bloodbath, complete with head sawing? The magic of B613? OK, Shonda. Don’t even get me started on the body melting of “Breaking Bad.”
On this week’s episode of “The Flash,” Barry struggles to balance dating with his professional responsibilities while the S.T.A.R. Labs team tries to get Ronnie Raymond back and Joe recruits Cisco to figure out who killed Barry’s mom.
JOSH: I was just innocently checking Facebook on my phone while waiting for a bus a few hours ago when I came across this Entertainment Weekly headline: “Jon Stewart Leaving The Daily Show.” My heart practically skipped a beat. I began to check around the Internet and, sure enough, the rumor was true.
