Does Parks and Recreation hold up?

It’s still funny, but people say it didn’t age well in a post-Trump world.

Ron "the government is evil" Swanson for sure hasn't aged well. I liked Andy at the time, but Chris Pratt has ruined him for me now. Never found Rob Lowe's character funny in the slightest, and that's the only character I couldn't stand even back then.

Hard to watch anything with Chriss Pratt in it.

Honestly, I never watched "Parks and Recreation" the 1st time it was on TV. It's on my TV watch list once I retire.

I never watched "The Office" either, it's on the list!!

To be fair even when it was airing I couldn't stand half the characters. I can't see that having improved over the years.

I do think it's still funny, but it is PURE fantasy. Indiana is a shithole MAGA state now--Pawnee would be a MAGA stronghold and Leslie and some of the other liberals/Democrats would be receiving non-stop death threats. And the ending---SPOILER---where Leslie, a Hillary style Democrat becomes President? Pure fantasy.

I never got this show. I tried so many times to watch, but it wasn't for me.
