There is nothing more entertaining on “Parks and Recreation” that the emotional spectrum of one Ron Swanson. During the premiere, there was a cause of great joy as Leslie Knope carefully directed a plan that showed him that there was some good in Europe … or at least some good booze.
On Thursday, Ron is going to be feeling a very different set of emotions in frustration once he realizes that Tom has put a series of photos of him around the office on his Facebook page … and the only way to get them taken down is via what appears to be a Surface PC. Poor Ron Swanson, who does not quite understand a tablet. He also struggles then to figure out that he may have accidentally recorded himself for a Twitter application.
This is a rough season of “Parks and Recreation” to watch a couple of episodes in, but not because the show is of questionable quality at all; rather, it’s because of the underlying feeling that the show is going to end pretty soon if the ratings don’t pick up. We anticipate the show still struggling tonight along with the debut of “Welcome to the Family,” and for Thursday nights to be an uphill struggle the rest of the way. Why can’t this show have a higher viewership? It’s a struggle that almost all Mike Schur shows seem to be going through right now; just look at “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” over at Fox, which is going through the same sort of thing despite being pretty darn funny.
