4.0 out of 5 stars Parkslife
The first season of 'Parks and Recreation', a mere six episodes long, has been overshadowed by the fact that the seasons which have followed it have produced some of the wittiest, most perceptive and genuinely poignant moments of any US sitcom of recent years. But the fact that Season 1 was the show's weakest shouldn't take away from the fact that the episodes gathered...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good start, but the best is yet to come...
It's absolutely criminal that it took so long for someone in the UK to pick up Parks & Recreation for broadcast when it is one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time.

I came across this show whilst on a long haul flight to America and with nothing else to watch I gave it a go. And even in the space of two episodes, I had fallen in love with it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Stick with it, 17 Mar 2013
I have seen all the episodes up to the newest eps from season 5, it is one of the best sitcoms, the first season is the worst. It gets better and better

Again, I didn't read the small print and was expecting to find Rob Lowe in Season 1, but the show is funny and so, so benefits from being seen without ads - not that one can yet do this in the UK as it has yet to be released here, althought I gather this is imminent. Excellent light fare.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favour, skip this season, 2 Mar 2012
By 
This review is from: Parks & Recreation: Season One [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Parks and Recreation has grown to be one of the best TV shows out there, but the first season is not worth watching. If you are new to the series, start with season 2. You'll quickly figure out all you need to know about the characters and setting, but you won't risk putting yourself off before the show reaches greatness.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tired, 20 Mar 2014
Thinks it's clever but really it's just dull. I hear it gets better in later seasons but I don't care.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best new comedys of the last 5 years, 21 Oct 2013
The show reminds me of the Office.The main character in particularly has huge similarities with Michael Scott but she is bit more likable.The side-cast is also good.It is surprising that it took so long for this show to arrive from the states.This show is along with Community and Modern Family the most entertaining new comedy of the last 5 years. A lot of episodes were genius and there are few average episodes but most episodes are 5 star and high quality with great dialogue and storyline.The show as mentioned is bit like the Office but in a more political and government environment.So for example there are comedy scenes involving how useful democracy is or how relations with foreign diplomats can be problematic.Must-watch.Season 2 is much better as it has around 25 episodes and better value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Parks and Recreation, 17 Mar 2013
At last! Parks & Rec finally arrives in the UK - long overdue. If you like 30 Rock and The Office - An American Workplace, you'll like this. Amy Poehler is just brilliant. Only 6 episodes, but they're worth it. Glowingly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars tripe, 5 Dec 2013

(VINE VOICE)   
I was recommended this by a few like minded individuals and i wish i hadnt listened. This is terrible, dull, atrocious and as funny as falling into a sharks mouth. The same friends said it gets better in season 2 and a good few reviews back that up and while that may be true i can only review this. This is a travesty, heck its that bad it makes big bang theory look like comedy gold. I understand this review may offend some but that isnt the intention. One friend even said skip season 1 altogether and start at season 2, i dont think thats a good idea. I need to know the characters and understand the idea behind the show. This is utter tosh and even if i watch season 2 and beyond and think they are the greatest thing since oxygen i will never pretend that season 1 wasnt crap.
