Product Description

Dedicated government employee Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler, Saturday Night Live) and her fellow colleagues return for big laughs from the small town of Pawnee, Indiana, in the hilarious third season of Parks and Recreation. Their funny antics continue as they ramp up for their most important civic project yet: The Harvest Festival. As Leslie plans, prepares and publicizes, her co-workers take on other challenges such as a crippling flu, the statewide softball tournament and the sad demise of a local icon: a miniature house named Li’l Sebastian. Created by Greg Daniels (The Office, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, Saturday Night Live) and featuring phenomenal guest stars, such as Megan Mullally (Will & Grace) and Will Forte (Saturday Night Live), Parks and Recreation is being hailed as, “The smartest comedy on TV.” (Entertainment Weekly)

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Because It's True Aug. 26 2014
By Ben Oboe TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As someone who has recently retired after a career in a municipal parks department, I can say with some authority that Parks and Recreation is, as the saying goes, funny because it's true. As a gardener, I was witness to the real-life office comedy of municipal politics and parks management from the outside looking in, a perspective I would recommend to anyone.

Parks and Recreation is, of course, a comedy about the bumbling exploits of the office staff of the Parks Department of a fictional town in Indiana. What makes it special though is the development of the core group of characters, played by an exceptionally talented cast. Whether we are laughing at them or laughing with them, characters like the unconquerable Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), the stoic Jerry Gergich (Jim O'Heir) or the irresistibly lovely Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) are people we come to care about. They are endearing because each in some way brings to life something that, however nutty, rings true about our own lives and the people we know.

While it is not essential to have watched Parks and Recreation from the beginning to enjoy it. It will be much more enjoyable if you have followed the characters from their introduction in Parks and Recreation: Season One.

5.0 out of 5 stars best show on tv Dec 28 2011
This is literally the best comedy out right now... absolute gold.

I loved the office, and when it looked like that show was dying out i found parks and rec. In many ways the office has rejuvinated itself this season,but parks and recreation is king. Better than community,Big Bang, 30 rock or any other. Ive watched them all, this is the best. buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Set for a Fantastic Season Oct. 4 2011
By Nami87
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The show was consistent in its third season and the added features compliment the complete series nicely.
It's worth it just for the gag reel.
My only complaint: Not enough episodes!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Official Now... May 27 2011
By C. D. White - Published on Amazon.com
**May Contain Spoilers**

Parks and Recreation's winning streak continues...still the best show on TV right now. So many new developments. So many new classic episodes/moments. So much is right with this show that it's hard to know where to begin. Let's see we've got the successful intergration of Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) and Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott). Speaking of...there's another adorable relationship unfolding between Ben and Leslie. But my favorite as far as couples go is still April and Andy. And if not for NBC's flub of accidentally promoting April and Andy's awesome sauce wedding they would have taken everyone by surprise with probably the most charming TV wedding I have ever seen. And what really is amazing is that they are more loveable/ interesting to watch as a married couple. From them being horrible housekeepers, to them eating turkey chili with a shared plastic fork off of a frisbee, to their role playing and contests of seeing who can get the most money from people at the Snakehole Lounge...there are so many things that have been funny, sweet and original about them.

But there have been great moments with the other major characters as well: Ann and Leslie anger dancing in "The Fight". Ron swiveling his chair around his circular desk in a vain effort to avoid citizens in "The Bubble". The Return of Tammy 2. The Return of Jean-Ralphio. The Return of Detlef Schrempf. Tom seemingly becoming a budding mogul with Jean-Ralphio (their company's name is Entertainment 720). Which I hope means that we get to see more of Jean-Ralphio ("Flushed with Cash"). The ecstasy that was "5000 Candles In The Wind", and the potential agony that is Tammy 1 (Just the mention of her made Tammy 2 run for cover). And what's gonna happen with Leslie? Will she run for and/or become Mayor? Will she and Ben go public with their relationship? And after Ann being a party girl most of the season is she going to continue to ride the wildside with Donna or was that a gleam in Chris' eye and what does that mean to Ann? And will Jerry ever be recognized as the great artist he is by the rest of the Parks department? ("Shut up Jerry") I guess we'll just have to find out next season...

For the uninitiated you'll have to forgive me if my review seemed to be relevant to only those who have been watching the show. To you, I say you have all summer to catch up and see why most people think this show is great. I think I read somewhere that P&R is going into syndication so that gives you another way to check it out...just remember that while the first season (the first 6 episodes) isn't awful things don't really get cooking until the 2nd season.

5.0 out of 5 stars it just keeps getting better. . . July 16 2011
By adamKS - Published on Amazon.com
this is how you create a classic, clever comedy tv series. michael schurr and greg daniels had already done it with the office and got that show off and running but after they left (around season 5?) their new tv project "parks and recreation" started the same way the office had. . .a little rough and rocky with low ratings at the beginning and seemed somewhat of a carbon copy of the office. however, when a tv show has smart humor, excellent writing and loveable/unique/warm characters with depth, the show is going to get a cult following and continue to grow and become beloved. this season also did a great job of separating itself from the office while still obviously borrowing the humor.

parks and recreation is unique in where most tv shows fail. either a show will go for cheap laughs and the raunchy sex humor like two and a half men or a show can stay classy and sophisticated and have character development and continous running stories between characters that arch over the entire season and you feel a real connection with the people and their situations...or you have the 30 minute sitcom where each episode basically starts from a clean slate which disables you from truly getting to know or connect to a character. fortunately, parks and rec picks the high road and stays classy while building on back stories and being absolutely hilarious.

while i was sad to see mark brandaniwitz (paul schneider) character go last season, the addition of ben (adam scott) and chris (rob lowe) has been HUGE. i think they add alot to the show and i think rob lowe's health-freak of a character "chris" is just absolutely hilarious and adam scott's "ben" is awkwardly great and warm and those two characters add alot of laughs and quirkiness to an already great ensemble/cast. i also like how leslie has came into her own in the season, she has gained more confidence and seems to be wiser than her oblivious nature in the first few seasons (good move to differentiate her from michael scott on the writers part). i also enjoyed the progression of rashida jones character "ann" in the season, she was always the "stickler" and uptight nurse in previous seasons, but in this season she lets loose and starts enjoying herself more and exploring the "ann" character.

once again, character development is so essential to this shows success and this season continued that. i also love the unorthodox marriage and relationship of andy and april. puts a very modern twist on marriage however i did feel the ceremony was kind of disrespectful to the idea of a real marriage in general but it ended up being sweet and charming like the show is known for so that was a minor detail for me. very similiar to how pam and jim were the sails for the ship on the office in its first 4 seasons, andy and april are that for parks and rec, just in an even more unconventional way.

i honestly cannot wait to get my hands on season 3 on dvd so i can watch all of these brilliant episodes again. like the office was in seasons 1-5, the show just continues to get better and i cannot wait to see what is in store for season 4.

brilliant show!

4.0 out of 5 stars Parks and Recreation delivers yet again Sept. 11 2011
By C.L. Silva - Published on Amazon.com
Parks and Recreation received its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series this year, and if you've been watching the show Thursday nights on NBC, it's easy to see why. But if for some reason you haven't now is the perfect opportunity to catch yourselves up by picking up the newly released third season on DVD.

Parks and Recreation, which is shot in a mocumentary style, follows Deputy Leslie Knope, played by the hilarious Amy Poehler, a mid-level bureaucrat working in the Pawnee, Indiana Parks and Recreation Department. In season one, we find Leslie on a quest to build a park for her city, but she runs into many obstacles along the way and hilarity ensues. Though the show's main focus is Leslie, Parks and Recreation would not be the same without its outstanding cast of supporting characters. Leslie's boss, Ron Swanson, played by the brilliant Nick Offerman, is a mustachioed, meat-eating libertarian who despises his job almost as much as his two ex-wives, both named Tammy - one of which we meet in second season. April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza) is Ron's unruly assistant whose pessimism and inability to care about doing her job correctly is perfect for Ron's aversion to taking calls and meetings with other local government officials or citizens of Pawnee. Ann Perkins, played by the beautiful and charming Rashida Jones, is Leslie's best friend and confidant. Though Ann is a nurse at the Pawnee Hospital during season one and season two, she comes to work with Leslie at the Parks Department in season three which causes a little bit of friction between the two in episode 13 called "The Fight." The other cast of characters includes Adam Scott as Ben Wyatt, a new member of the Parks Department who Leslie hates at first but soon develops a different opinion, Chris Pratt as the dense but loveable Andy Dwyer, and Rob Lowe as the Indiana State Auditor Chris Traeger.

The Parks and Recreation Season 3 DVD set is comprised of three discs, all of which have bonus features. The first disc contains the first six episodes along with deleted scenes, a hilarious trailer commercial for "Ron & Tammy 2," the episode where Ron's ex-wife Tammy returns for a second time, as well as commentaries by Adam Scott, Amy Poehler and Michael Schur (the show's creator) for "Flu Season" and Nick Offerman, Meghan Mullaly, and Jim O'Heir for "Ron & Tammy 2." But the best bonus feature on disc one is the hilarious 20-minute gag reel that shows just how wonderful the dynamic is between the members of the cast. Discs two and three contain more deleted scenes, commentaries, and promos.

Parks and Recreation started out with dismal ratings. It was often compared to The Office, 1) because it was advertised as being from the creators of The Office, 2) because of its mocumentary style which became synonymous with The Office, and 3) it had a leading character that seemed to be just as naïve and wacky as Michael Scott, the inept and immature regional manager of the paper and printer company Dunder Mifflin Inc. However, Parks and Recreation has since completely separated itself from that association thanks to the brilliant writing of show and its characters. The character development and genuine humor are what makes Parks and Recreation truly enjoyable to watch.

By Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
people may compare this to the office and say it is just the outside version of the office but it is not. it is so much better and so much more funnier than the office. don't get me wrong i do love the office but i feel like parks is just funnier and more fun the the office. and i really do love all the awkward laughs this show gives me i just love it. simply put it is the best show on tv and nothing even compares to this show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Friggin awesome May 21 2011
By lee - Published on Amazon.com
This is the funniest show on tv by far! The writing is uniquely funny, without the stupid easy sexual humor that most shows go for. I find myself laughing to tears and that is RARE.
