The comedic minds that brought you The Office, King of the Hill and Saturday Night Live now conspire to create Parks and Recreation. Amy Poehler plays Leslie Knope, a mid-level government employee who is trying to convert an abandoned construction pit into a usable community park while a documentary camera crew follows her every step and misstep. In her path are the typical defensive bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, real estate developers and single-issue fanatics determined to prevent her from doing any good in her community.
Earlier this year, NBC's beloved sitcom Parks and Recreation aired its final season, complete with a beautiful series finale that served as a wonderful send-off to these quirky characters in Pawnee, Indiana. You can still relive the show over and over again in reruns and on Netflix, although it isn't known when the final season will debut on the streaming service, but today we have discovered a slew of blooper reels that highlight some hilarious behind-the-scenes moments throughout the show's run. The first video focuses solely on Chris Pratt's off-color jokes, including a hilarious dig on Kim Kardashian.
The second and third videos focuse specifically on gags from Parks and Recreation Season 4 and Parks and Recreation Season 2. Each of these videos make it quite clear that Parks and Recreation would be an incredibly fun show to work on, in any capacity. Hopefully more gag reels from the hit show surface soon, so stay tuned for more of this hilarious videos.Read More
