Dear fellow aggressively short ladies: JCrew Factory now carries some things in petite, and they are currently having a 50% off everything sale.
So I think for me the thing is, in the first four seasons, Parks was grounded in a reality that was zanier than real life but fundamentally made some sense. Then they went big at the end of season four and sent Ben to D.C., which didn’t work. Leslie failed at city council, which actually makes a kind of sense but I still think Jamm is the worst thing that ever happened to the show, and now I think the writer’s room involves thinking of all the randomest, craziest shit that could happen and firing it out of a confetti cannon. Sometimes it lands, but more and more often, it isn’t landing for me. And this is not a complaint specific to this season. I think, as a fandom, we forgave a lot of last season’s inanity because the proposal and the wedding still felt grounded. Nothing feels grounded to me anymore.
Look, Pawnee has done you a favor. You’ve outgrown them. You’ve got talent, and you’ve got name recognition. Which means that you have a bright, wide-open future with a thousand options.
