Tonight at 8:30pp on NBC, the cast of Parks & Recreation comes out of their five-year retirement to inform us about COVID-19. The half-hour scripted special is a creative way to teach everyone what do and what not to do during this pandemic. They make learning how to protect yourself from Coronavirus fun.

Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler)! Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman)! Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari)! Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones)! April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza)! Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt! Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott)! Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe)! Donna Meagle (Retta)! and Garry Gergich (Jim O’Heir)! They all get together tonight, but due to social distancing, they are all apart. How are the married couples going to do that? You just have to see how they explain it. That and to see what everyone else in Pawnee is up to after all of these years.

The episode starts off with Leslie talking to her husband, Ben, on Facetime. When she gets off the phone with him, it is time for her to start her phone chain. Her first call is to Ron, and he is thrilled to see her. Well, as thrilled as Ron can get. When he gets off the phone with her, it is time to move on to the next person. Then the chain keeps on going until someone has to talk to Gary.

In between phone calls, they appear on TV shows because Leslie wants the townspeople to know some of the dangers of being home all the time can have on a person’s mentality.

Eventually, they all get on Zoom and we get the best moment from the enjoyable episode. The type of episode you can and should watch with your whole family. You don’t have to be a fan of the show to adore tonight’s special.

Show creator Mike Schur says it only took 45 minutes to get everyone on board to do it. What got them all to say yes so quickly? He says, “Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money,”

The show is raising money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. State Farm and Subaru of America will each make matching donations of $150,000, while NBC and Parks & Rec will match $500,000 in donations up until May 21st.

Duncanville is a slam dunc!
February 16th, 2020 under Amy Poehler, Fox. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8:30p, a new animated show joins Fox. Duncanville is like a real sitcom, that works better with animation.

Duncan (Amy Poehler) is a normal, awkward teenager, and his parents are not the most perfect for him. Like in an upcoming episode when Jack (Ty Burrell) and Annie (Poehler) offer him up as the town virgin.

Before we talk about upcoming episodes, let’s talk about tonight. Jack wants to teach his oldest son how to drive, but Duncan is not having it. However, when Mia (Rashida Jones), his crush, says she can’t wait to go driving with him, he agrees to learn how to drive. The lesson does not go well, and now it is up to his mom to teach him.

It goes better with his mom until he almost crashes into Old Oakie, the tree where they hung all those witches. His parents decided to take a break on the driving with him, but he wants to drive his friends to an EDM concert. Thus, he takes the car, goes to the show, and crashes into Old Oakie. What happens when they find out he is the one that destroyed the town’s beloved tree?

Duncan also has a sarcastic sister, Kimberly (Riki Lindhome), and they are like typical siblings. They also have a younger sister, Jing (Joy Osmanski), and she is a cute, wisecracking toddler. He is also friends with Bex, and her animation looks just like Betsy Sodaro, the actress voicing for her.

In the upcoming weeks, Jack and Annie decide to clean out their garage, which brings back a lot of great memories that involve rock stars and a guillotine. Then in another episode, they celebrate the town’s annual event of remembering all the witches they hung.

All of these stories are told with a flair that can only be shown with animation. Duncanville takes the family sitcom to a whole new level by adding over-exaggerated moments that live-action just can’t do.

Duncanville is the type of show that fits in perfectly with Fox’s Animation Domination and will be around for a while.
