The last of a dying breed.
While last week’s episode of Parks and Recreation was quite good, the major thing that still sticks in my head from that episode is Ron Swanson showed proper jug drinking technique (natch).
During the Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally episode of WTF, Nick Offerman said that this line by Andy in the show was completely improvised, and is one of his favorite jokes that has been on the series.
- ‘30 Rock’ is still full of one-liners but that show has run its course. Id rather see those people move onto something entirely new.
- The fact that ‘Community’ has made it this far is a Goddamn miracle, stop complaining already and start your internet campaign to get the ‘Community’ movie off the ground. It’s a great show but I rather see ‘Community’ end on their own terms and not try to rush a series.
- ‘Parks & Rec’ has the ‘30 Rock’ dilemma, great characters but there’s not much further you can take those characters. Look where it started and look where it is now. It started out as a mediocre show and got amazing.
All of these shows are great shows but they will become stale and tired like ‘The Office’ if they are allowed to go on forever. Think of how much better ‘The Office’ would have been if it ended a season ago instead of meandering in limbo like it is now. As much as I love these shows I’m ready for something new and for those creative forces to apply themselves in other areas.
I was writing a post on the matter but, yet again, Dan has managed to say what I was thinking. It’s not like these are great shows in their prime and getting axed without final seasons. It’s not like these are even the highest rated show in the lineup (The Office is still king, for some reason).
Also, this is all still rumor at this point (except for 30 Rock) and I’ve never heard of “OpposingViews.com” in my life. The real news will probably come out Sunday with the upfronts.
