    It's back from 8am tomorrow on Netflix lads

    It's an all time classic

    And it deserves it's own new thread

    Can't wait. It's honestly the first thing I've looked forward to this year so far

    In the meantime, express how you feel about it's return using the power of Gifs

    Really like the first 2-3 series. The i bested you episode is just comedy perfection from start to finish.

    It is an absolute classic..


  • Registered Users Posts: 949 ✭✭✭ secondrowgal


    Followed :D

    I have the Mammy staying with us for the Level 5 festivities so this is going on the list along with Schitt's Creek (finished it already :(), Kim's Convenience, Superstore and thinking about a rewatch of Modern Family.

    Need a dose of comedy and something that last too long per episode.

    One of the best ever - although tbh I found the last series dragged a bit.....

    Brother in law used to rave about P & R but sister & I only tried it a week ago ... absolutely hooked since starting it. The two of us were saying yesterday how Ron is one of those guys we could put in the unusual guys you fancy thread. Not our usual type but ... there is something about him.

    Caveat ... may have been beer goggles talking

    But it must be the manly mustache and deep voice

    Have never seen Parks so adding it toy lost.
    Currently half way through superstore and really enjoying it.
    Love Mateo, Dina and Glenn. Sandra is funny. And as for Cheyenne:)

    I watched it on Prime at the end of the last year - comedy gold. It took a while to get going, season 1 wasn't my favourite. But season 2 right up to the 2nd to last were excellent. Everyone should watch this.

    For added hilarity for those new to the show, Ron is married to his on-screen ex (Tammy 2) in real life. It makes their scenes together even funnier!

    Season 2 was a such massive course correction for the show. They knew what the problems were and aggressively set about sorting it out. It really should be a required case study for all comedy show runners.

    For sure

    I'm still going to watch it once I start this Re-watch though

    I'm currently re-watching The West Wing and slogging my way through the very patchy Season 5. It's 22 episodes x 42 mins plus Ads on the All 4 app

    6 quick episodes of the first Season of Parks & Rec of 6 episodes x 22 mins is nothing by comparison. It flies by


  • Registered Users Posts: 467 ✭✭ dubstepper


    Ron is obviously great but Jean Ralphio is a scene stealer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,619 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Watched it all during the last year on prime
    Skipped season one on advice of a friend
    Still took a while to get into it

    I’m delighted I skipped season one as I now have 6 “new “ episodes to watch :)
    Well 5 Cos I watched one last night

    I'm currently watching this for the first time on Amazon prime! Didn't think much at first, but I read the reviews which basically said ignore the first series and stick with it.

    I feel from midway through the second series is when it really took off and now I'm properly invested. At just 21 minutes an episode it's such an easy watch. Highlights so far are Ron getting shot, his 'pyramid of manliness' and April scheduling 93 meetings for one day because she didn't know March 31st existed :pac:

    Should probably avoid this thread from now on for spoilers, but I hope the best is yet to come!

    I can't wait to rewatch this :D it's been so long!

    If I don't unfollow this thread I'm going to end up watching it again..

    Was Season 1 really that bad?..

    I liked it anyway. Very often a settling in period with these shows - Seinfeld, Red Dwarf others i like that needed some time to find their feet but that doesnt mean opening series were bad at all. For a really truly dreadful opening series, see Black Adder.

    He is fine...but he is no Joan Callamezzo!

    A character I could have had more of was Tynnyfer :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,394 ✭✭✭✭ Mushy


    Recorded it on Sky Comedy last year so that was handy to watch during first lockdown. Great show. Will likely watch random episodes again. Barney gets to me every time, his sparse use is great.

    Seeing Jennifer Barkley in Wandavision too, she's great!

    Ok, can I just say something though........

    We need Joan to take over the Six O'Clock show or something similar. I'd watch that shiz in a heartbeat.

    I didn't think Season 1 was that bad.It definitely takes an upturn in quality from season 2 onwards but I don't think anyone should skip the season,it's only 6 episodes.

    P&R is one of the all-time greatest comedies.
