NBC tossed a new, crappy show (Outsourced) onto the Thursday-night lineup to fill the void that Parks and Rec left behind a few months ago, but…well, saying that Outsourced is no Parks and Rec is like saying that Paul W.S. Anderson is no Quentin Tarantino (too inside?). That’s all over this Thursday, though, as Parks and Rec comes back to its rightful place in the NBC Thursday night comedy-block. Read on to learn more (and to see a very funny video starring Rob Lowe), my gentle Examiner readers…
The new season of Parks and Rec that’s starting this Thursday will be short one cast member (that’d be Paul Schneider, whose Mark Brandanowicz left the show at the end of season two), but it’s gaining two new, full-time cast members in Adam Scott and Rob Lowe, both of whom have more than acquitted themselves in the field of televised comedy before. It sucks to see Schneider leave the show– he was a great addition to the team– but Scott and Lowe seem like they’re going to be great in their new roles.
As you might’ve expected, the cast and crew of Parks and Rec are happy to be back, and they’ve put together a little video to promote their return. Before you go clicking the “Play” button over there on the left, though, be forewarned that the video focuses on a very potty-mouthed Rob Lowe, so if you don’t think you’ll be entertained by the sight of Rob Lowe spewing obscenities, punching Adam Scott in the face, and tossing a hot cup of coffee into the smiling face of Aziz Ansari, well…you should probably just skip this one.
But if that sounds like it is your kinda thing? Well then, yes, it’s Rob Lowe, the rest of the Parks and Rec cast, and a whole bunch of swearing. Why is Rob Lowe swearing, and why is he assaulting the rest of his castmembers? You’ll have to click that totally non-descript video box on the left to find out, folks. Don’t say we never gave ya nothin’.
