Alison Brie and Chris Pratt (The Five Year Engagement)
Although they were meant to be the supporting couple to Jason Segel and Emily Blunt’s marriage-challenged central lovers, we kinda wish the whole movie had been about the adorable Brie and Pratt and not just because their romance represented the union of our two favorite TV comedies, Community and Parks and Recreation. Whenever they were onscreen, the movie flew by; when they were elsewhere, it felt like it had been going on for five years.
Ron and Andy: A
An excellent mix of adorable, realistic and hilarious, this whole subplot was one of my favorites in a long time. As I say pretty much every week, Chris Pratt is ridiculously funny, but we also got to see Ron participate in government in his own way without it being the same song and dance we’ve seen a million times from him. I love the addition of Lucy Lawless, and the fact that her character is a middle school vice principal who doesn’t fool around. The princess stuff was fantastic, and the reveal that Andy wrote Ron’s office address in pink chalk of the pothole definitely was so sweet.
Ron’s Best Line of the Night: [Trying to pretend he doesn’t want to impress Diane by letting the girls cover him in makeup]: “Why would that matter?… shut up!”
Andy’s Best Line of the Night: I liked the gum in his hair, but the obvious choice is “Ron and Dianne sitting in a tree. K-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i… do you hear that bird?”
Our apologies to Champion, but the best Andy and April moment of the season came before they adopted their three-legged canine, when they took a spurt-of-the-moment road trip to the Grand Canyon so that Andy could check seeing it off of his bucket list. Getting a glimpse of April’s softer side was sweet, but what made it really special was Andy asking where all the presidents were.
I’m just trying to say that it’d be ideal if everyone and their moms watched this show together to help build a better Pawnee. Though, it does make I… sad.
Chris Pratt landed every single scene he was in last night — it got to the point that the very sight of him in a new classroom had me giggling, especially the laser class. I was hoping that the show would recognize that taking a college class can be insanely expensive, and the writers delivered… as did Andy, who is too proud to take money from April’s parents and will instead beg for money in the street like a drug addict. Also: Why isn’t there a class on women’s lasers? Sexist.
Best Line of the Night: Tough call, as everything in the callback at the end was hilarious, as was the tiny shot of Andy’s Fairway Frank newspaper clipping at the very beginning of the episode (has that been around all season, and I just completely missed it until now?). I’m gonna go with: “I barely haven’t even ever seen a gortar.”
