I remember watching commercials for this show when it first came out and thinking that I absolutely had to watch it, but somehow that never happened.
Which means that I can now watch it marathon style. Sometimes I hula hoop while watching - super fun!
Amy Poehler/Leslie Knope is wonderfully hilarious but also just a great female role model. She seems a little silly and delusional at the beginning, but the more we see of her, the more we can admire her optimism, strength, feminism, and desire to help people.
Despite being a sitcom (or because of it), the show makes super sharp and intelligent observations and criticisms of many aspects of society.
But I don't want to dissect it here. The best thing is just to go and watch and laugh and feel awesome!
