Parks and Recreation survived long past expected into seven glorious seasons. Thank God it did. In a few short days, it became one of my favorite shows thanks to Netflix’s never ending stream of awesome. Sadly, the series finale was last night. This show was funnier than the Office and more real than 30 Rock. The cast had unbelievable chemistry and produced a show that will live in our minds forever. I will seriously miss Leslie Knope and her wonderful world of weirdos and waffles. The season finale was so amazing I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. So I did both. Parks and Rec gave us so many amazing things: Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza’s perfect deadpan voice and personality as April, Ron freaking Swanson, treat yo’self as one of Tom and Donna’s quotables, Chris Pratt, the most perfect couple in all coupledom Ben and Leslie, literally my most favorite Rob Lowe character ever, and a ridiculous number of other things. There are too many Buzzfeed lists to comprehend and they make me sad when I look at them. So goodbye, Parks and Recreation, you poetic and noble land mermaid, you beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk ox, you magical, priceless gem. You will be missed.
I love you and I like you.
