The best antidote to the blues TV has to offer! Just one thing, make sure to watch at least 2 or 3 episodes before you decide if you like it. Everyone in my house took that long to warm up to it/ understand and appreciate it for the brilliant show that it is. We were already serious fans of both “The Office” (same producers and mockumentary style) and “Arrested Development” (similar humor) so we had high hopes for Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) and the rest of this stellar ensemble. To our surprise, not only did we enjoy the show, we fell madly in love with the cast, hanging on their every word like infatuated teenagers. I can’t bring myself to spoil even one surprise by giving and examples. Just watch it. It’s available on Netflix Instant Watch and the current season can be enjoyed directly from the NBC website free of commercials.(Everyone smart enough to have joined the band wagon on this one long ago {we’re half way through season three at this point} well done!)
