The writers couldn't have known how timely Leslie's warning to "stay away from John Mayer" would end up being this week. That was a lucky break.
The "most romantic story ever told" about Leslie's mother meeting the lifeguard ending with "six months later, she met my father" was awesome.
So much depth and character work this week.
April's growth where she sees the Parks and Rec group as her real friends, her softening and her sentimentality showing, her making moves toward Andy, cockblocking (not the right term) Ann, and finally breaking up with her gay boyfriend only made her dreamier.
Andy and his band Mouserat were just awesome. Everything Andy related was awesome.
Ann finally started to realize what I've thought about her and Mark since they got together - they are one boring ass couple. I did like that among Mark's barrage of cliched Valentine's Day gifts, he gave her the Heart of the Ocean.
They resolved Tom and his ex-wife but more importantly, Tom and his man crush on Justin continues, even after Leslie realized Justin is a selfish douche and dumped him. (Man, do I miss Louis CK.)
The regular crew is so good, they didn't even really need John Larroquette nervously puking every few minutes. He'll always be Dan Fielding to me.
The total number of actual viewers for the game would be slightly higher. The game was also simulcast on local network channels in Kansas City and Denver. The way I read it is that only 4.2 million watched the NFL Network feed.
