Compounding the shortage of post-apocalyptic TV these days, NBC has made some curious choices in the realms of dystopian drama and comedy (goodbye ‘Revolution’ and ‘Parks,’ hello three-camera!), so why not combine the two? The peacock has recruited Rob Lowe, ‘The Office’’s Jenna Fischer and Megan Mullally for a new hour-long dramedy, fittingly enough titled ‘Apocalypse.’

‘Parks and Recreation’ Review: “William Henry Harrison; Leslie and Ron”

by Britt Hayes January 20, 2015 @ 9:25 PM
Although a lot has changed in the fictional TV years since we last saw the cast of ‘Parks and Recreation,’ some things never change, like Leslie’s unflappable determination, and Ron’s stubborn attitude. These two butting heads over their ideals is nothing new, but there’s something kind of unsettling about the cavalier and stoic way with which Ron approaches his business—he’s always been a libertarian with anti-government and pro-capitalist views, but who could imagine a Ron who makes deals with a business like Gryzzl?
