Are you missing Parks & Recreation? Have no fear—these crafts will help revive your love for one of the best shows to grace our televisions in a long while. Here are some fun crafts that pay homage to both the show and its D.I.Y.-superhero frontrunner, Leslie Knope. 1. This pattern advises to crochet a tiny horse in pink and white... but two shades of brown will better resemble Li’l Sebastian, the miniature horse (don’t call him a pony!) greatly beloved in Pawnee, Indiana.   2.

It’s a miracle that Parks and Recreation, a critical darling that never had any security in terms of ratings, made it through seven seasons and never managed to be anything less than great. Last night’s finale gave us a glimpse at our beloved characters’ futures and was a wonderful tribute to the show’s cornerstones of hard work and friendship. These were some of our favorite moments; read on and try not to cry, you beautiful, talented, brilliant, powerful musk oxen. Spoilers abound, of course: 1. Read More
The holidays may be over, but the bone-chilling weather is just beginning. Thankfully, television is back and with all sorts of good excuses for you to stay in.

  In a promotional blitz for her new book “Yes Please," everyone’s favorite funny-girl Amy Poehler stopped by The Howard Stern Show yesterday to discuss sex-tips, divorce and a possible date she once went on with John Stamos. She thinks. Poehler, who separated from actor Will Arnett in 2012, said that she met Stamos for dinner and drinks, before realizing that perhaps she was on a date with the actual Uncle Jesse Katsopolis from Full House (watch out, Aunt Becky).

Retta, the comic powerhouse behind Parks and Rec’s indomitable Donna, schools us on everything from owning Twitter to surviving V-Day. If someone asks you who Retta is, and you reply “my imaginary best friend,” you’re pretty much in step with the rest of the world right now. The New Jersey native and hilarious triple threat (actor/comedian/trained opera singer) first became a household name with her portrayal of Donna Meagle, the uber-competent, luxury-loving, romance-adept Pawnee government employee on NBC’s long-running sitcom Parks and Recreation.

If you haven't fantasized about having a bestie like Amy Poehler, then you're lying to yourself. Finally, in an interview with Vulture, she has revealed to the masses just what it takes to be deemed worthy of late-night texting marathons and corny birthday presents: "Money, connections, power, sexiness, thick hair, fast cars, a sweet-ass booty, and a desire to travel. All those things." Admittedly, her standards are pretty high, but I'd do it all to have just one mall montage scene with her.  "I haven't been able to find one person that meets that criteria.

This is LITERALLY the saddest news I’ve heard all week. As a huge Parks and Recreation fan, I’m bummed to hear that both Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins) and Rob Lowe (Chris Traeger) are leaving after 13 episodes into the next season. Jones, who has starred in the show since the pilot, spent the end of the last season trying to get pregnant with Lowe's character. Presumably, their on-again/off-again relationship and her potential pregnancy will be tied into their exit from the show, although both have become such major characters that it is hard to imagine the show without them.
