I am only upset about
Spoiler:
Rashida because I absolutely adore the Leslie/Ann friendship. Ron Lowe and Chris I don't mind but won't miss him.

This news is literally THE WORST. /Jean Ralphio.

Spoiler:
The only speculation I have (and I haven't seen season 5 yet so I don't know what happened in certain areas) is that Chris quits as city manager to father Ann's baby and they fall in love. As a result, he gets a job elsewhere and they move together as a family. Which would be sweet, but I will really, really miss the Ann and Leslie friendship. I don't care if Ann was boring, I liked her alot.

Spoiler:
I would miss it too, but when I think about it, I'm not sure they've really had one the last season or two. It seems Ben kind of started doing the things Ann was doing meeting her at the waffle house, that sort of thing. Which sadly is realistic, I guess. But I will miss them, because so few TV shows really portray female friendships that don't involve love triangles or what feel more like polite casual friendships than actual close, deep friendships. Couldn't they have just found some other use for Ann?

Spoiler:
I think they've struggled to find a use for Ann all along -- nothing they gave her really stuck, except the Leslie friendship, but it's a lot to pay a name actress (or at least, she's pricier than, say, Donna or Jerry) when they aren't really clicking and they're just sort of a pawn on other people's stories. And I don't know if I'll miss Rob Lowe, either; I enjoy him, but I also think his character was a one-joke pony and I don't know how much longer it could've gone on. They always seemed to struggle to give him his own thing, too.

Season Five Blooper Real

1. Chris Pratt is so gross and I love it.
2. Amy Poehler consistently strikes me as a warm and generous (and hysterically funny) person
3. If there were a TV channel that was all bloopers all the time I would watch the shit out of it

I never really like episodes of shows that take place in their not normal settings. It always feels too weird, and this was really no exception. But even though it wasn't my favorite, there was still so much about it that I loved, which is really just what I love about this show in general, and that is LOOK HOW HAPPY EVERYBODY IS! Everyone's just living life, having functional relationships, achieving life dreams, etc. It's awesome. I love how positive this show is.

Shiny happy feelings aside, I could really do with about 100% less Mona Lisa. Jean-Ralphio is a national treasure, but his sister makes me wish for less Saperstein in my life.

This show is perfection!

I loved the England bits! I mean even if sucked I would need it for the five Pratt free episodes!

My heart will break when this show goes off to the harvest festival in the sky! Why hasn't this show won every award in the world.

This show makes me laugh, but it's warm and cuddly like a hug, too. I loved all of it, but for some reason my favorite moment was Donna eyeballing Chris's boxer-briefs. Donna's the best.

I somehow wasn't expecting Ron to immediately propose as soon as Diane said she was pregnant, but I should have. Because he's Ron Swanson, and of course he'd want to "do the right thing" for his Duchess. Sniffle.

I LIT-erally gasped out loud when Diane said her middle name was Tammy. Hee.

I like Mona Lisa just for the moment when Jean-Ralphio says "She's the WOOOOO-OOOORST"

Because the show is Leslie Knope, and Hollywood is Pawnee, pretty much. /April Ludgate mode

Speaking of April, I do love her character development. She's grown from the surly sarcastic teen/earlytwentysomething very naturally and believably, imho.

For a vacation episode, this was pretty good. I'm always nervous when American shows/movies touch European soil, but thankfully there were only a few moments where I cringed, and they were intentional (I think). No annoyingly awkward poses in front of the Buckingham guards!

When Ron started tearing up reading the poem I got a little misty. Leslie's perfect gifts are my favorite thing.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

Fuck you, NBC. Right in your ear.  I know I should be happy we've gotten as many awesome episodes as we have, and that I (likely) won't have to worry about the show hitting a slump before it goes out, but I'm not. P&R is my happy place, dammit.

On the plus side, I have faith that the show runners have enough time to plan for a super awesome final season because they've had to do it more than once. I mean, the Leslie/Ben wedding was the planned finale if the show didn't get renewed past its 13 epsisodes last season and that was probably my most favorite episode of a sitcom ever.

DAMN IT. I am beyond upset about this.

"The network desperately wants to get more viewers to sample 9 p.m. comedy Sean Saves the World." Yeah, good luck with that. To be fair, I haven't watched "Sean", but I've heard it's terrible.

I don't understand. How is this supposed to help anyone? How is it that a repeat showing of the Voice gets more viewers than a new episode of Parks? Never mind, don't answer that.

ETA:

The comments had this:

I think you're off base here. NBC is airing 4 episode of Parks and Rec over the next month. That's not what happens when a show is getting benched. They just don't have any 30 minute options to plug the hole in the schedule they're left with, so they're using the 4 episodes they have as two full hours instead of four half hours. Then they're using some hour long options they have to fill in on the other nights.

As for the absence from the schedule for the end of the year, that's far from unusual. The Thanksgiving nigth NFL game and the Sound of Music special have been planned for quite some time. And mid- and late December is almost always filled with lots of repeats and holiday specials.

These moves are not primarily geared towards boosting Sean Saves the World. They are geared towards keeping the entire night somewhat afloat. If they just plugged the holes with repeats for the remainder of the year, the slide would get worse and worse.

I'd bet good money Parks & Rec is back in Fall of 2014, and NBC has done nothing to make me think otherwise.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.
I don't know enough about tv to know how much of this makes sense.

Yeah, this is basically NBC saying it wants more viewers to change the channel to something, potentially anything, that is not NBC.

I read this article just this morning from the LA Times about one of the thursday comedies getting cancelled, and NBC filling the hour with Parks and Recs, and then return in January in the time slot after Community.

I think with their new shows doing so poorly, they'd be crazy to cancel something with even middling ratings.

Adam Scott had a series of tweets about this the other day which basically said no, we're not on hiatus, this was always the schedule as planned, no worries. So I'm trying not to freak out. But I've heard ratings are not good so I worry about a possible future for the show beyond this season. I lost my 30 Rock, I don't know if I can stand losing my P&R too.

And honestly, if P&R gets canceled, there will be literally nothing left on NBC that I watch besides SNL. And a lot of times I DVR that and watch it later in the week.

I sincerely think there are a lot of people in this position. I hope the announced casting change indicates NBC is going to try to save money on the show in the future, not cancel it.
