The ‘Parks and Recreation’ Quarantine Special Was Perfect. Please, Nobody Else Do This.

Does anyone actually want TV shows and movies to tackle life under coronavirus quarantine? Parks and Recreation’s one-time reunion special proved Thursday night that there may be exactly one case when the answer to that question is yes. And this was it. 

It’s inevitable that once the world opens up again, so will the floodgates on all the attempts to encapsulate this very unusual time on screen. (How long after this until the teens of Riverdale solve a murder via Zoom?) The apathy, bordering on allergy, to the prospect of this was evident earlier this week when Netflix ordered a quarantine anthology series titled Social Distance from Orange Is the New Black’s Jenji Kohan, an announcement met with the social media equivalent of a loud groan. 

Maybe that’s because the thought of being reminded of the unnerving peculiarities of life right now once it’s all over is

Parks and Recreation Reunion Recap: Greetings From 2015

Parks and Recreation has only been off the air for five years, but what a five years it has been. When the NBC sitcom about a tireless, obsessive, irrepressibly kind public servant—Amy Poehler‘s Leslie Knope—and her beloved colleagues aired its finale, on February 24, 2015, America had a very different collective self-image. A global network of Ebola fighters had just won a tough, worrisome but nonetheless decisive battle against that deadly virus. After a devastating summer of police violence, the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement at least seemed poised to effect positive change. As pop culture was making unprecedented strides in trans representation, an unstoppable queer rights movement was about to make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. Our first black President still had two years left in his second term, and Donald Trump was four months away from officially kicking off his campaign. The idea that

San Diego will partially close some streets starting Thursday to boost outdoor recreation space

San Diego will create more outside recreation space beginning Thursday by transforming four local road segments into “slow streets,” where part of the roadway is reserved for pedestrians and cyclists.

The goal is allowing residents to more easily get exercise and move around while also practicing safe social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing can be difficult on narrow sidewalks or bike lanes.

The city also will reopen several commuter bikeways and install larger “walk” buttons that can be pressed using a clothed elbow instead of a hand. The goal of the larger buttons at pedestrian crossings is preventing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Another goal of the changes, which the city is calling an experimental “pilot” program, is reducing congested foot traffic in parks, at beaches and on outdoor trails, which have been partly re-opened for passive use.

Local environmentalists and pedestrian advocacy groups are praising the

TV Ratings for Thursday, April 30: ‘Parks and Recreation’ Reunion

Parks and Recreation, your reunion was a rainbow-infused space unicorn.

NBC’s pandemic-themed, fundraising A Parks and Recreation Special drew 3.7 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating, dominating Thursday night in the demo (even besting Young Sheldon‘s season finale).

TVLine readers gave the exactly-what-we-needed-right-now but over-too-quickly special an average grade of “A+.”

The money raised by the special ($2.8 million as of Friday morning, and growing) will go to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund, which enables food banks to provide food and resources to “the most vulnerable members of the community” during the pandemic. NBCUniversal, the Parks and Rec cast and sponsors State Farm and Subaru of America matched donations up to $500,000.

Leading into the reunion, a Parks and Rec-themed Paley Center special did 3.4 mil and a 1.0. Later in the night, Council of Dads‘ irregularly scheduled second episode did 2 mil
