Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful television show without losing her mind.
Leslie Knope, a mid-level bureaucrat in an Indiana Parks and Recreation Department, hopes to beautify her town (and boost her own career) by helping local nurse Ann Perkins turn an abandoned construction site into a community park. However, what should be a fairly simple project is stymied at every turn by oafish bureaucrats, selfish neighbors, governmental red tape, and a myriad of other challenges. Leslie's colleague Tom Haverford, who delights in exploiting his position for personal gain, is as likely to undermine her efforts as to help her, while her boss, Ron Swanson, is adamantly opposed to government in any form, even though he's a bureaucrat.Written by
The series was originally planned as a direct spin-off of The Office (2005). It was later re-designed to be an original workplace story that would keep the "mockumentary" format used for the other series, which this show's executive producers Greg Daniels and Michael Schur had worked on (Daniels as creator, Schur as a writer and producer).

Even if Pawnee went bankrupt there would be no precedent for the state to take over the city beyond its finances. Chris Tragaer could certainly direct its financial operations; however only elected officials could run the city and make the legal decisions for it. See more »

This show is really two shows. Pre season three and post season three.
Before season three the show was like the office, the main character is an idiot doing the best they can but failing. The show has very awkward humor and is really funny.
Post season three the show becomes very light hearted and goes for more the comedy the show is known for. It's about a smart capable main character who is a bit weird going against a bad system.
The show is really good and it can be very funny but the change is jarring and I know people who only like post season three and people who only like preseason three, I think this is also reflected by some reviews.
I recommend the characters are awesome.
