Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

Not the greatest episode, but I still liked it.

I would do filthy filthy things to the women's studies professor.

Swanson was extra funny this episode. I love when he plays Andy's dad.

Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

I didn't like the setup of the Leslie/Ben A story, but the rest of the episode was very good.

Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

loved when Ron was walking out of the Intro to Guitar class and told the professor she would look good as a brunette and then drops, "Ron Swanson."

agree with above poster about Ron being good when he plays "dad" to Andy

Leslie entered Michael Scott territory again for the first 15 minutes. Besides that this episode was terrific.

Pretty much this. If The Office never existed, I don't think this would bother me at all- but it's hard to see this and not feel a bit worried with the liberties they're taking with the character.

Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

I think the Leslie stuff people are worried about would have been a lot less bothersome if it hadn't come off two consecutive episodes where Leslie and Ben were dealing with the fallout from their breakup and she was acting similarly.

Unlike Michael, though, Leslie actually has people who will call her on her **** and is also mature enough to acknowledge and try to make amends for it.

Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

I think they made a very concious choice with Leslie being too OTT this and last episode. We are meant to be uncomfortable with the way she is acting, because she is absolutely heartbroken at Ben not even wanting to work with her.

Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

Yeah to be clear it didn't bother me this episode. In fact it really hasn't bothered me at all these last few episodes, because, like you said, she's heartbroken over what's happened to her and Ben, so she has a reason for acting this way. It's not like Michael, whose reason for that (and basically everything he did) was "I was neglected as a child and had no friends so I need everyone to love me and pay attention to me all the time".

Tom's behavior in the "Meet N Greet" episode, and Leslie's quick willingness to forgive him, bothered me much more than anything she's done since.

But we've never seen Leslie hold a grudge against anyone, and it doesn't seem consistent with her character to do so.

Re: Parks and Recreation Season 4

Yeah the whole point of her plot this episode is when Ann told her EXACTLY how she was acting and why it was annoying, then she came around by the end.
