Parks and Rec hadn't done a community forum scene since the Venezuelans visited Pawnee and this week's didn't disappoint.

I just saw Food Inc. a few weeks ago and the outrage over corn syrup being in just about everything sold in a supermarket or in fast food restaurants is pretty fresh in my mind. This episode was a really good tackling of the issue, with the (stupid) public of Pawnee getting what it wants. (A snack bar made from corn, corn syrup, and sunshine.) But it also was reminiscent of The Simpsons episode from a few years ago when a snack company put sugary snacks in every Springfield Elementary vending machine, causing Bart to become super fat.

The ideological battle Ron waged with Leslie over her butting into everyone's business and his right as an American to destroy himself as if he chooses was great. Plus Ron was doing double duty fighting against the government and for privatizing everything.

Tom was so over the top in the moving scenes, I almost thought it was too much, but the scene with Wendy helped re-humanize him. But the hell with that, even. DJ Roomba was the shit! I want to make one with my Roomba. (The ghost of DJ Roomba may have been even better.)

April distancing herself from Andy is such an obvious stall. They don't want to pull the trigger on getting them together yet and they're stalling. What does she see in her gay boyfriend, anyway?

I need to get me one of those scrolling font belts. "What's crackin', boo?"

DJ Roomba! Too awesome.

Also got a big kick out of Ron excitedly looking under his seat for a bar. Sadly, I don't think there was one under there. I'm sure he more than made up for it with his turf & turf (16 oz. steak with a 24 oz. porterhouse, I think?).

You are correct!

I hope the ghost of DJ Roomba makes a re-appearance sometime in the future. That was pretty sweet.

The straight men got funny bits this week! Mark's crestfallen "I [bleep]ing hate having a truck" and Anne's rant against Pawnee's fat children.



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

This is not related to this episode per se, but here's Aubrey Plaza on Jimmy Fallon a couple of nights ago.

Telling the story of following her principal home in a box:

1) I want Aubrey Plaza to be my girlfriend.

2) What, you're just going to tease us with a Marcia Gay Harden impression and then cut the girl off, Jimmy Fallon? FUCK YOU JIMMY FALLON.

Yeah, I love me some Community, but I think P&R is hitting it out of the park and rec nearly every week. The thing that really gets me is that there's nothing over the top about the episodes (compared with Community's Zombies, Paint Ball, etc)
