Well, “Parks and Recreation” is over. And if you couldn’t tell by my Twitter feed, I’ve been pretty emotional about it. So emotional in fact, that I’ve decided to do something crazy. And Leslie Knope-like. Here I give you an acrostic poem devoted to my favorite comedy. Editor’s note: My roommates helped me emotionally get through this and offered suggestions.
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.
That was one hell of a show. Every aspect of Super Bowl XLIX lived up to the hype, which is more than can be said for the walloping the Seahawks put on the Broncos last year. This year, the Hawks were beaten by Tom Brady’s Patriots in possibly the most heartbreaking football moment since the Titans came up one yard short in Super Bowl XXXIV.
