Parks and Recreation teaches viewers about love

By Kevin Bartelt

Season five of Parks and Recreation just keeps getting better and better.

For those who are not caught up, SPOILER ALERT: Ben (Adam Scott) proposes to Leslie (Amy Poehler). With no fear of losing my man card, I can confidently say that Ben and Leslie are the cutest couple on TV. Although Poehler and Will Arnett have sadly recently separated in real life, knowing that Ben and Leslie are engaged reassures us that love is possible.

While the two love birds are in flight, the rest of the cast continues to show that love does have its struggles.

Chris (Rob Lowe), although very optimistic, proves to us that we all have our internal battles. Tom (Aziz Ansari) is trying to get over Ann (Rashida Jones) breaking up with him. And Ann…well, she’s always a mess when it comes to her love life. However, Andy (Chris Pratt) and April (Aubrey Plaza) show that simplicity in love can bring happiness. They aren’t as complex as Ann and they seem to be very happy ever since they got married.

Love can be amazing and crazy at the same time. To see proof, check out Parks and Recreation.
