Chase Miyagishima a sophomore from Hillcrest watches the TV show on Netflix.

“I really like the TV show. I think it’s really funny. It’s also a show that is relatable so that makes it 10 times better. My favorite character is Ron Swonson. He’s really simple and funny. He also likes breakfast food and he also acts carefree even though he really does care.”

Parks and Recreation is probably the best TV comedy I have ever watched. The TV show has hilarious moments with quotes like “I have no idea what i’m doing but I know i’m doing it really really well” or “We have to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. But work has to come third.”

The show has an amazing story line as well as many unique and funny characters. So the next time that you’re looking through Netflix for a funny, quirky TV show, make sure to check out the amazing Parks and Recreation.
