THANK GOODNESS.

I did not care for the will they/won't they Ben and Leslie story line. I MUCH prefer them together. They have to be my favorite sitcom couple in a long time.

I think I want to marry Ben Wyatt. :D

How're you guys liking this season? I don't think it's AS good as last, but it's still very entertaining.

Loving it.

Such a consistently great show. Definitely the highlight of Thursday nights for us.

It's hard to say much about a show that is this consistently good. Everything about it is near perfect - cast, writing, etc. This last ep wasn't particularly funny or memorable, but it was still a great half hour of TV.

God hates small parks.

I loved this episode. The show is just so consistently good.

Also, was I the only one who thought Leslie was going to suggest they get married?

Am I the only one who calculated the 0.000003 square miles into square feet? Maybe being a land surveyor made me do it....

Yep. Park looked a bit bigger than that on the show.

<Sarcasm>I can't believe the writers would mess up such a simple thing. SP deleted! </Sarcasm> :D

I don't know, it looked about right -- 86 sq ft is about 9"x9".
Yes, that was a Spinal Tap joke.

I agree. When it was done, it was barely big enough to cram in one bench and a lamppost. About 9' x 9'.

Half the height of stonehenge. Yes, I picked up on the joke right away.

Because he's awful.

I think there will be a scandal. I actually think Leslie will lose the election as lots of politicians do on their first try. I think the scandal may play a role in her losing.

I really enjoyed Andy trying out various classes, with Ron and April kind of playing the angel and devil on his shoulders.

Just about every episode we have one moment where we say "Awwwww! Poor Jerry" :o

And I'm really glad that Tom is back in the office and done with his Studio 720. It was only a little funny and was starting to get old real quick.

You mean promoted to 4th.
Why should he be above April and Andy?
Let alone Donna?

Well he did settle at 3rd. Must have missed why he went down to 4th.

The above is my recollection of a 4 am viewing and may not necessarily reflect events on the show :)

You know, when this series started, I really liked Aziz.

Now I wish they'd get rid of him.

He went from quirky to total loon. He is awful now.

IMO, I wouldn't say awful but certainly less enjoyable.

Agreed. Much, much better than community and now better than the office.

Great characters. Leslie, Tom, Ron Swanson, april, Jerry, etc.

He has gone downhill but I think they can save him. It's not too late.
