Ten reasons why you should watch Parks and Recreation

Parks and Recreation has just been renewed for a seventh season! Not familiar with the employees of City Hall and the people of Pawnee? Here's why you should treat yo self and watch Parks and Recreation.

1. Leslie Knope

Amy Poehler just deservedly won a Golden Globe for her role as Knope, the loveable Deputy Director of the Parks and Recreation department in Pawnee, Indiana. Knope is the friend and colleague you've always wanted, her biggest loves include waffles, Pawnee and Joe Biden.

2. Ron Swanson is the best

Never one to show much emotion, Swanson is the manliest of men. Forget sentiment, all Ron cares about is meat, hunting and himself. Sounds horrible, doesn't he? You'll come to love him.

3. The stupidity of Andy Dwyer

Chris Pratt expertly plays the innocently stupid Andy Dwyer, providing slapstick and dumb one liners with ease.

4. Pawnee

Small town America has never looked so good. Home to a Harvest festival and JJs Diner, it isn't exactly envied by its neighbours, Eagleton. Ignore them, you just need to look past the seedy nightclubs and raccoon problems. To top it off the town's biggest celebrity is miniature horse, Li'l Sebastian. 

5. There is no one more positive in the universe than Chris Traeger. No one.

ANN PERKINS! Chris seems to have only one emotion, ecstatic. Fitness fanatic, tell him the worst news ever and he'll still be smiling. He also loves to use the word, literally, literally all the time.

5. Leslie and Ben's relationship

There is no cuter couple in television, film or local government. Ben loves Leslie, Leslie loves Ben's butt. They may be geeky and have a cringey handshake but it's hard not to love them.

6 . Tammy

There have been three women in Ron Swanson's life, all of them named Tammy. Nonetheless, it is Ron's second wife, Tammy 2, that is the most dangerous and brilliant. Played by Nick Offerman's real wife, Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) this is a lady that sets the fear of God in Ron. A sexual animal, she'll stop at nothing to wreck Ron's newest relationships.

7. Jerry's fault! Jerry's fault! Jerry's fault! 

Jerry is the bumbling, clumsy guy who the whole office likes to mock. Spilling soup, tripping over  and breaking wind- these are Jerry's best skills. Looking for someone to blame? Blame Jerry. Fancy teasing someone? Tease Jerry. Need wardrobe advice? Don't ask Jerry.

9.Tom Haverford's swagger

Tommy Haverford was born to go on Dragons Den. Fragrances, a night club and a talking tissue box, Tom has got his fingers in all the pies. Social media mad, he likes to be referred to as The Brown Gosling but doesn't always have much luck with the ladies.

"At the risk bragging, one of the things I’m best at is riding coattails. Behind every successful man is me, smiling and taking partial credit."- Tom Haverford
10. Tom and Donna's friendship

These are two friends that love the finer things in life. Three words: Treat. Yo. Self. 

See a dress you like? "Treat Yo Self." An aftershave? "Treat Yo Self." Fancy a massage and some mimosas? "Treat Yo Self."
