    I'm just really loving this show right now. The stuff in the "morning after" episode was fantastic. I laughed a lot-particularly at April's pillow-hat. And the snow pants.

    I haven't watched the second of the episodes yet, but I'm looking forward to it. This show has really hit its stride. I think the addition of Rob Lowe, and more importantly, the other new guy (can't remember his name off the top of my head) has really fleshed out the cast.

    Parks and Rec has to be the best comedy on TV right now. It's freakin' brilliant every week.

    Both episodes were great, but Ron Swanson dancing after getting plastered on "Snake Juice" was epic.

    Ron giving a claymore mine to the little girl in the second episode was perfect.

    I want a gif of that so much. (I watched the Producer's Cut on Hulu, in that one, he does it on Kyle. I can't decide which is funnier.)

    I think that Leslie and Ben are perhaps my favorite sitcom couple ever. The second episode was just as great as the first

    I thought Rob Lowe doing the banjo-pickin' was a hoot. :)

    They're an obscure (but beloved within that community) indie band. Basically, perfect for April.

    I loved everyone getting drunk-especially Ron's "dancing" and Ben's giggly "Ba-Ba-Booie!" :p;)

    "How ya livin', Ron?"
    "Ahem...Yes." :D

    Rob Lowe: I believe an ounce of that could literally kill me. :D

    Know Ya Boo! :p

    I cracked up at the whole "I ran a 5k this morning." "Really?" "No, I threw up in the shower." exchange between Ben and Leslie.

    Yeah it is amazing. Once in a while a show will hit on every episode in a season and this is having one of those special runs this year.

    Except that, arguably, last season was just as good. So we're looking at, possibly, a 2 consecutive season run of greatness. That's nearly unheard of.

    There were two episodes? Crap. I only had one recorded. I saw the exchange between Ron and the little girl at the start of whatever show I recorded next and it didn't make sense. It does now. I think my cable provider has it on On-Demand.

    I really think the first episode (was it The Fight?) may have been the best sitcom episode I've seen in a while. I rewatched it last night and it is just awesome.

    It's interesting-I was so lukewarm on this show until this season, and this season has just gotten progressively better with every episode.

    That being said...I don't enjoy April and whatsisname as much as I want to.

    I could only use it at work (our corporate network makes me appear to be in the U.S.)

    That was hysterical!
    That and the fact that Chris had read the ladder article.
    Who knew Rob Lowe could be this funny?
    (Yes, I know, Wayne's World)

    Leslie and Ben are having a pretty sweet "will they or won't they".
    Much better than many other shows when they do this.

    And Ron Swanson was awesome in both episodes, as always.

    I know I've said it before but Parks and Recreation really has been firing on all cylinders this season.

    Go Parks and Recreation!

    I know-he is just going for it on "P & R" - doesn't care how goofy he looks, love how he "punches" peoples' names, and of course all his "literally"s...:D

    "I keep myself well hydrated and have a bladder the size of a ... (what did he say?) ... so I urinate 12 times a night..." :p;)

    The key to good urethral health? Radishes! :D

    I love that Jerry and Donna were rocking "Know Your Boo." I was cracking up every time they high-fived.

    Ron dancing at the bar was hysterical.

    Ben and Leslie are so cute.

    I cannot get enough of Tom. Although I think that is the beauty of the show - such great characters they give you just enough to love them without going too far.

    John Ralfeo! One of my favorites. I rewatched season 2 recently and the episode when he first appears interviewing for Ron's assistant is genius.

    This show is so great.
