It’s been five years since we said goodbye to NBC’s beloved mockumentary about a group of supremely likable civil servants from the small, fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana, which, come to think of it, doesn’t sound like a long time ago when you focus only on the number of years that have passed. But the truth of the matter is that Parks and Recreation, which took its bow in 2015, is in every way a throwback — a relic of a pre-Trump era that doesn’t really exist anymore, except in the form of a half-hour TV show that gave us, tucked inside a candy coating of slapstick, comedy, romance, and heart, a one-two combo of a mission statement that sustained the show for seven seasons. That statement is as follows: Government can be a force for good in the world, and that the people who make it so represented a reason to be more hopeful than not about America circa the mid-2010s.

Which is why it might strike you as a little incongruous that on Thursday night, April 30, NBC is broadcasting a quickly assembled Parks and Recreation reunion special.

At a time when TV news is wall-to-wall coronavirus coverage, when the leader of the free world who you’d hope would remind you about the only thing to fear being fear itself instead of making sarcastic comments about injecting yourself with bleach, Parks and Recreation is coming back, one more time, to place the original cast of characters in our current timeline of social distancing.
