Parks and Recreation is one of the most successful shows in television history. By any metric you use, Parks and Rec has found a good deal of success. Lasting for six years and seven seasons, it received a countless number of nominations from both the Golden Globes and the Primetime Emmy’s. It has a huge fanbase and launched the careers of several stars. The show followed in the success of another NBC and Michael Shur hit, The Office, and for awhile the shadow seemed to loom too large. However, over time (and with a slight change to the show’s format) Parks and Rec was able to create its own lane and become one of the greatest television comedies of all-time.
I recently rewatched Parks and Recreation from start to finish. I love the conversations and debates that surround entertainment, so I’ve decided to rank the Top 25 episodes. All plot descriptions are accredited to IMDb.com and I added an explanation for my ranking of the Top 5.
