I had to get to season 4 of Parks and Rec until it took, and that happened because my son's soccer coach was the production designer on the show and I saw it was free to view on a plane and I wanted to see his name. I laughed so loudly that I got shushed. So I totally get that.
Now I watch Parks and Rec over and over, and my son is a huge fan of the show too. And of The Office. I feel a little guilty about that, but it's good stuff.
