Was just reading the official synopsis for tonight's episode. They had me at the words "Ron Swanson" and "meditation center."

"Pablo, please take Chet's corpse into the other room, and then fix Mr. Hallenbeck a drink."

Nick Offerman Reads Teen-Celebrity Tweets While Doing Manly Shit.

"Holy shit, Leslie, that was awesome!" I love the fourth X in Brandi Maxxxx's name. As usual, I also love what this show has to say about the media, politics and corporations.

Andy's retelling of "Roadhouse" may be my very favorite thing ever.

An extended cut of the episode (running about 4 and a half minutes longer) is on NBC's site.

God, I never get tired of Perd somehow acting as a narrator of his own statements right as he says them. "The final thing these candidates will say will be their closing statements. We will begin with our first candidate to go, Bobby Newport." Brandi MaxXxx was also great, and Joan Callamezzo, too. The entire Pawnee media is just an endless gift. Also: "Wichita Lineman." How many modern sitcom actors could pull off a scene like that so note-perfectly? ONE.

The amazing thing about this show is half the actors have those kind of moments regularly. Nick Offerman is a comedy god, but nobody else could pull of Leslie Knope like Amy Poehler does, nobody else on the planet does earnest-underneath-morose-deadpan like Aubrey Plaza, Tom Haverford is unimaginable outside of Aziz Ansari, and Chris Pratt lights up every scene he's in. You couldn't right those movie retellings for anybody else. Even Rob Lowe brings something unique and original to the table. Since Paul Schneider left, Rashida Jones is really the only weak link left. And that's mostly because the writers have never known what to do with her character.

I think outside of Breaking Bad, the Parks actors are the best cast on TV.

I want to see the uncut reel of the candidates, and Andy's re-enactments.

The producers actually put up a Twitter feed for the debate's Twitter-questioner (@MunchMeat2015) – it's hilarious, and they've apparently been running it since February: https://twitter.com/#!/munchmeat2015 Holy shit, this show. @MunchMeat asks Dale Earnhardt Jr. how he stays "so consistent." (Also, MunchMeat2015 found his car around midnight, Central time. But there's a twist!)

^ That was a funny line (and maintains Bobby's status as a lovable or goofy moron rather than being a bad guy) but the line of the night for me was Ron was saying "But you're an asshole" to the van guy.

But the Stands and Practices people let the "ass" pass, but bleeped "hole". That, to my wife was the funniest part.
I have learned that some pain cannot be healed, but must be endured. I believe our Higher Power will help us to endure and find peace. I loved the boy with the utmost love of which my soul is capable and he is taken from me-yet in the agony of my spirit in surrendering such a treasure, I feel a thousand times richer than if I had never possessed it."
-- William Wordsworth 1812

Loved Andy's list, including the Moon, New Caprica, the Battlestar Pegasus, and Winterfell as possible "new" places to live. Also, Key Largo, Montego, and Kokomo. Sad to think there's now only thirteen episodes of this show left.

New Caprica and the Battlestar Pegasus do not seem like a good choices to live to me. Goddamn, those New Caprica rescue episodes of Galactica were good. "Then that's it. It's been an honor." For the sake of west coasters or DVR viewers, I don't want to get too specific but they made all the right choices with how this season ended. And Jean-Ralphio for City Manager!

I agree, Travis. Every storyline got the ending it earned. Especially Ron's pep talk to Leslie, which wouldn't have been possible any earlier in the series without feeling forced.
]Sad to think there's now only thirteen episodes of this show left.
What? What what what?!? I know NBC's looking at shorter seasons for most of its comedies next year, but I haven't heard anything about season 5 being the last.

Granted, assuming that another network doesn't pick it up, that is. Which, hopefully might happen, barring an extended season-order down the road. Vanity Fair seems to think this is NBC basically putting it out to pasture. Ben's reaction to that drink from Ron killed me. Jean-Ralphio's been missed. To channel Chris Traeger for a moment, here, I'll never understand why NBC chose literally the worst timeslot for this show possible. It's a great 8:00 show; quality-wise, it should be their 9:00 show, and it flowed great in the lineup at 8:30. 9:00, though? Needs to be something a little darker. 30 Rock was great for that. If there's any justice at all in the world, Ron's speech about never changing is just going to get memed to death.

"Pablo, please take Chet's corpse into the other room, and then fix Mr. Hallenbeck a drink."
