Parks and Recreation was a beloved sitcom on NBC from 2009-2015. Starring a fantastic ensemble cast led by Amy Poehler of SNL fame, the show became a cultural phenomenon and a ratings powerhouse for 7 seasons. While that was going on, I ignored the series completely. I knew about it and even caught tiny snippets of it here and there, but took little time to sit and watch. I lumped it in with the cringe humor of The Office and decided it wasn’t for me. Recently, my friend and sister geek Taylor and my husband both convinced me that I might actually like the show if I gave it a chance. It turns out they were right. It took me 3 weeks to binge my way through all 7 seasons. And now here we are. Depending on how you look at it, I’m either 3 years or nearly a decade late with this list. OR… Maybe it’s never too late to love great television?

Either way, here’s my list of 10 reasons (not the only 10 reasons, not even the top 10 reasons, just 10 of the reasons) I love Parks and Recreation.
