“Parks and Recreation” has been a rather special show for the many seasons in which it has been on the air. With that in mind, you should be very pleased to know that it is also going to have a rather special celebration in which for it to say farewell.
On Tuesday, February 24, which also just so happens to be when the final episodes are going to air, the entire cast of the Amy Poehler series, along with executive producer Mike Schur, will be guests on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” This feels like the appropriate venue to have what constitutes in some ways as an aftershow. Seth and Amy are great friends dating back to “Saturday Night Live,” and have such a wonderful chemistry with each other.
The question now remains: How will the show come to a close? The past few episodes have been very strong, even if they do not necessarily equal the greatness of “Leslie and Ron,” which may actually be the greatest episode of the entire series. Ben running for Congress is a fun storyline, just is seeing what happens with Andy now that he is seeing his time as Johnny Karate wind down. Donna is married, Tom is trying to picture himself being married, and Leslie finally has the job of her dreams in the National Parks system.
Of course, the funnier thing is that this show has had in many ways a number of different finales, especially when you remember that it often did not know of its future when it was having to craft together season finales. It’s always been prepared.
