How to watch Parks and Recreation in Australia

Advertisement

Question: what do you get when you combine a political satire mockumentary, Greg Daniels and Michael Schur, a spin-off to The Office, and some of the funniest comedians in America? The answer is a successful – and surprisingly heartful – comedy, otherwise known as Parks and Recreation.

The series, which spans across seven seasons (score), follows the lives of a group of bureaucrats working in the Parks and Recreation Department of the fictional Indianan town of Pawnee. The motley crew work together on various projects to help better their city, and are led by Deputy Director Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) — known for her OTT enthusiasm and her dedication to her job.

From Leslie’s one-liners, Ron “I regret nothing” Swanson, April and Andy’s uh… inspiring love story, and Rob Lowe looking hot in his mid-forties — Parks and Rec is small town government comedy gold.

But how can Aussies catch the iconic US show? Thankfully, Parks and Recreation is available through plenty of streaming platforms. Read on to find out how to watch every episode in this Canstar Blue guide.

What is Parks and Recreation about?

From Emmy Award-winning executive producers Greg Daniels and Michael Schur (and created originally as a spin-off to The Office), Parks and Recreation is a mockumentary political satire following the lives of numerous government employees living and working to better their beloved city, Pawnee. Leslie Knope stars as leading lady of the Parks and Rec department as she attempts to turn an abandoned construction site into a park for the community — and boost herself up the political ranks, too. The ensemble comedy is loaded with talent, including Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Nick Offerman. Is there truly anything better than small town government?
