Andy and April are not simply a fun couple. They compliment each other in a really interesting way. Outwardly observed, their personalities as individuals from season 1/2 don't scream conventional compability. Very soon after becoming a couple they get married. Leslie is obviously serves as the mouthpiece of objecting to the impulsivity of the timing. And throughout the series they are tested by long distance and both trying to settle into/cope with adulthood.
The episode that ends with crossing seeing The Grand Canyon off Andy's bucket list just one shining example of why April and Andy are a beautiful couple in a comedy.
April is involved because it's Andy's list. Andy wouldn't do it if it weren't for April. April "steals" her dad's car. Andy plays music. There's this fire monster that spits gasoline at another fire monster who spits gasoline fight to their perpetual caring. Everything with Macklin and Janet Snakehole doubles down they are not conventional. Their love story isn't them vs. The world. It's them in their own world. Where they are allies with the moon and have all the lions.
And Leslie was right. They are impulsive.
Like driving to the Grand Canyon on a whim.
And when they do it's beautiful and vast. Which I think can be analogous of their connection as well.
And it's not Mount Rushmore, as we learn Andy originally meant. And that is hilarious.
Anybody have scenes that really capture the essence of someone/s in Pawnee for you?
I’m in Australia and I downloaded the show as it was airing in the States. I’m currently rewatching it on Stan and I swear there’s differences in some of the episodes - I’ve seen this show a million times but there are scenes that are just slightly different to (eg. the snake juice episode, Andy throws up on Kyle’s shoes instead of while he’s running down the hallway) and I feel like I’m in a parallel universe or something. Is this a thing? Or am I just imagining it?
“It’s literally the best show of all time”. (Said like Chris Traeger way)
I'm watching PandR for the first time (3/4 way through all seasons) and just don't get why he's the most meme'd character.
I understand as a character he’s meant to be slightly crazy and not taken 100% seriously - but he’s also often attempted to be written as the ‘grounded’ voice of reason to talk Leslie down from the ledge, and I see most people think he's the wise fatherly character.
He’s incompetent at he’s job (both purposefully and unwillingly)
He sabotages other’s initiatives
He’s unfriendly to all
It’s depressing that his anti-gov quotes are meme’s like what he says is identifiable to people
To me he stands next to Tom as being the most unlikable character (Don't get me started on the Tom/Ann saga).
Is it possible that because I’m not American I’m missing something redeemable in his character?
