Never fear, Andy Samberg fans. The timing of the unfortunate 'That's My Boy' with Andy Samberg's 'SNL' exit does not mean that the "D*ck in a Box" funnyman has abandoned TV for movies. In fact, we've just learned that Samberg has signed onto an untitled FOX comedy from the creators of 'Parks and Recreation,' but who will the new sitcom see Samberg playing? And what does it mean for the fate of 'Parks and Recreation?'
Parks and Recreation
Sure, the world might come to an end in December, and we could very well find countless ways to annihilate one another between now and then, but we all know the true crisis humanity is facing down: the terrifying, and deadly worldwide shortage of bacon. A lack of grain will mean less food for pigs, thereby less delicious slabs of fatty meat to fry up golden brown, but you know who's not worried? 'Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson, of all people! How would you like to hear his secret tips?
Well, that certainly explains why 'Parks and Recreation's
Gary Jerry Gergich never seems to mind the constant teasing and put-downs of his co-workers. After all, how could you stay mad about anything when you had supermodel Christie Brinkley to go home to? That's right, 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 will finally introduce the oft-discussed Gayle Gergich, and she's a heck of a lot prettier than we all imagined. So, when will Christie Brinkley be dropping by?
Just when you thought it was safe for Ron Swanson to go back in the water. However temporary a guest appearance it might have been, 'Parks and Recreation' fans were excited and full of "aww" to see Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) potentially developing a non-Tammy love interest in Lucy Lawless' Diane. Unfortunately, the terrible wrath of Tammy 2 may rear its ugly head once more! And by ugly head, we mean the lovely Megan Mullally's return!
We thought about making a joke about how 'Parks and Recreation's Amy Poehler stealing Julia Louis-Dreyfus' husband Brad Hall might have been what caused the split between her and Will Arnett, but then we just got sad. Then we tried to make it into a joke about Julia stealing Amy's Emmy for Outstanding Female Lead, but then we just got sad about her and Will Arnett again. But anyway, Brad Hall is going to be on 'Parks and Recreation,' or whatever.
Now that 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 has reached full swing, it's high time for a guest star, don't you think? No, we're not seeing the debut of 'Breaking Bad's' Jonathan Banks just yet, but who better to kick-off a season of surprise appearances than Xena herself, Lucy Lawless! Perhaps the only woman strong enough to truly tame Ron Swanson, Lawless will make her first appearance in Thursday's "How a Bill Becomes A Law," so how would you like a first-look?
Now that 'Parks and Recreation' has officially debuted its fifth season with the elegantly sweet "Ms. Knope Goes to Washington," we can say that some fans might have noticed a little something off with the premiere. While we may have seen some all-star guests in Leslie Knope's trip through Washington DC, curiously absent was Kathryn Hahn's character Jennifer Barkley, who was the one to bring Ben to the Capitol in the first place. So, will she be back for the coming season?
Even after 'Parks and Recreation's' spectacular debut last night with season 5 premiere "Ms. Knope Goes To Washington," we still can't wait for some of the upcoming episodes. In addition to a guest turn from 'Breaking Bad' star Jonathan Banks, we'll also be privvy to a multi-episode arc from Xena herself, Lucy Lawless! But apart from a new love interest for Ron Swanson, who will the lovely lady Lucy Lawless play? Are you ready to see her in action?
After seeing Leslie Knope successfully elected to Pawnee's City Council last season, ‘Parks and Recreation’ season 5 heads to D.C. with its first episode of the year, as Leslie finds her newfound authority quickly humbled by a trip to visit Ben at his new big-shot job in Washington D.C., while back in Pawnee Ron Swanson attempts to fill in for Leslie in throwing the annual employee appreciation barbecue. Which? Why, the "Leslie Knope Employment Enjoyment Summer Slam Grill Jam Fun-Splosion," of course!
Last season’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ finale “Win, Lose or Draw” saw Leslie just barely achieving her longtime dream of being elected to City Council, while Ben took up the offer for a real campaign job in D.C. and Tom and Anne drunkenly agreed to move in with one another, so how does “Ms. Knope Goes to Washington” get us started? What will season 5 of ‘Parks and Recreation’ bring, besides new nemeses, 'Breaking Bad' guest stars and Xena herself?
