Parting is such sweet, sweet, maple syrup-y sorrow.
After seven seasons of laughs, Parks and Recreation is coming to an end. The beloved comedy's swan song airs this Tuesday night on NBC, giving fans a last chance to say goodbye to Pawnee, Indiana's best and brightest (plus Garry).
We're going to miss them all — a lot. The show and its characters took a couple of seasons to find their voice, lingering awkwardly for a time in the shadow of esteemed mockumentary predecessor The Office, but the wait was more than worth it. Parks and Recreation brought smart, joyful comedy to our televisions, embodied by Leslie Knope's sunny, can-do optimism, but reflected in every member of the strong ensemble cast, even on-the-surface grumpster Ron Swanson. In an era of dark dramas and cynical comedies, Parks was a breath of zany, inspiring fresh air.
