'Parks and Recreation' plans Indianapolis field trip

The civil servants of fictional Pawnee, Ind., are headed back to Indianapolis.

According to NBC, cast and production crew of NBC sitcom "Parks and Recreation" will be in Indianapolis during the first week of December to film at various locations.

In 2010, the show shot an episode at the Indiana Statehouse. "Parks and Recreation," which stars Amy Poehler as a mid-level bureaucrat, airs at 9:30 p.m. Thursdays on WTHR-13.

The specific roster of "Parks and Recreation" players that will visit in December is unclear, but several characters may have a mission in the Circle City:

>> Andy Dwyer (portrayed by Chris Pratt) could look up NFL wide receiver Reggie Wayne, as Andy wore a Wayne jersey at his wedding.

>> Tom Haverford (portrayed by Aziz Ansari) could reconnect with NBA center Roy Hibbert, who did some moonlighting for Haverford's media conglomerate Entertainment 720.

>> Chris Traeger (portrayed by Rob Lowe) could visit the chic apartment where he lived when he worked for the Indiana state government.

>> Ron Swanson (portrayed by Nick Offerman) could visit the former site of his favorite restaurant, Charles Mulligan's Steak House.

I can't get enough of this show now. The seasons are all on sale this week for Black Friday but I only bought the first two

I only have season 3 on dvd cause target had it for like $20 once.
cuteej4 20th-Nov-2012 06:09 pm (UTC)
I want to get season 3 and 4 for obvious adorable Ben and Leslie reasons but I put them priority HIGH on my amazon wish list so here's hoping somebody gets the hint.

I also need icons like crazy but haven't found one that I love yet

I can definitely make a still one and I can make a good go of an animated one :)
cuteej4 21st-Nov-2012 06:41 pm (UTC)

This picture is gigantic for some reason but I'd love it as an icon

And as for your attempts for animated ones, you can try these

I like the head bob

And then this one, I like the point at the end. You could try the last few frames for animated but if it doesn't work then a still would work just as well
jaimelannister 21st-Nov-2012 08:41 pm (UTC)

I hope they are okay! The first one is so adorable with the pointing!
cuteej4 21st-Nov-2012 09:21 pm (UTC)
Aaahhh. They're perfect! You did a fantastic job. Thanks
jaimelannister 21st-Nov-2012 09:41 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you like them :)

Idk, Parks hasn't been doing it for me this season.. last season, either. I still haven't watched the last 2 eps

Lol mte

i just laugh when people feel the need to declare how they don't think the show is as funny anymore or whatever.

i'm just like, "...welp.. sorry about your funny bone..."

hjohnson 20th-Nov-2012 06:33 pm (UTC)
People say that about every single comedy on television right now.. you'd think people would realize after awhile that it's not that the show is less funny, you're just...used to it? Its not fresh and exciting anymore.

Its like a relationship. We've moved past the honeymoon phase.
famineaffair 20th-Nov-2012 06:32 pm (UTC)
the last episode was hilarious imo. ben proposing to leslie and jonathan banks guest starring distracted me from the fact that those episodes weren't great, but last episode was on par.
americnxidiot 20th-Nov-2012 06:50 pm (UTC)
oh i'd say the last two episodes have been best of the season. it's been super on point from the proposal onward imo.
anydoppelganger 20th-Nov-2012 06:58 pm (UTC)
IA :( I still think it's funny, I'm just not as on board with the Leslie/Ben thing. I think their relationship is well-written, I just don't love it.
devlinacardigan 20th-Nov-2012 07:41 pm (UTC)
yeah, I could care less about Leslie/Ben. I like them because I love her and he makes her happy so whatever.

Look at me talking about Leslie like she's real.

it's been a slow decline for me since season 3. idk, i just don't love it like i used to. :(
wegoturdog 20th-Nov-2012 06:06 pm (UTC)
Omg omg omg! I will have my camera ready at all times!
so_chic_doll 20th-Nov-2012 06:07 pm (UTC)
I remember how excited the local news was when Parks & Rec was even announced as a show-- since it takes place in Indiana.. I'm sure they're all peeing in their pants now that it's actually going to film there. hahaha.

they've been to indianapolis before, haven't they?
hjohnson 20th-Nov-2012 06:35 pm (UTC)
From the article...

In 2010, the show shot an episode at the Indiana Statehouse. "Parks and Recreation," which stars Amy Poehler as a mid-level bureaucrat, airs at 9:30 p.m. Thursdays on WTHR-13.

famineaffair 20th-Nov-2012 07:23 pm (UTC)
Ah, yes. Then why is this news? I mean I'm all for any excuse to make a Parks and Rec post but I doubt the location is totally important
so_chic_doll 21st-Nov-2012 12:49 am (UTC)
marmar627 21st-Nov-2012 07:59 am (UTC)
Yes, but they haven't filmed there before
m3ts_ftw 20th-Nov-2012 06:35 pm (UTC)
:O i'm so tempted to go stalk them
tasty76 20th-Nov-2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
That's just up the road from me! It would be fun to try and find them. I hope they stop by Upland Brewing Co. (even though it's down here in Bloomington). It's always fun trying to spot our local beer company on the show.
la_oceane 20th-Nov-2012 06:51 pm (UTC)
ahh I love Upland!
aubreyrose 20th-Nov-2012 08:50 pm (UTC)
Every time they show an Upland beer, I'm like, 'sweet!'
marmar627 21st-Nov-2012 07:59 am (UTC)
omg maybe Ben can go find Doug from Bloomington and ask him if he did buy his shirt
captaintrash 22nd-Nov-2012 12:25 am (UTC)
I hope they come film in Bloomington so I won't have to go all the way to Indy to stalk them. Just tbh.
kawaiiairbender 20th-Nov-2012 06:39 pm (UTC)
I wish they'd do a storyline with donna :(
la_oceane 20th-Nov-2012 06:48 pm (UTC)

I don't get home until Christmas!!!!!! come onnnn :(
menageohthree 20th-Nov-2012 07:08 pm (UTC)
I hope Jean-Ralphio makes an appearance.
coloursofsouls 20th-Nov-2012 08:01 pm (UTC)
FML!!! All this shit happens in Indy when I fucking move!

prophecypro 20th-Nov-2012 08:11 pm (UTC)
I havent watched this show in a bit, gotta catch up on this season and last
aubreyrose 20th-Nov-2012 08:47 pm (UTC)
Anyone have details? Who/where/when can I stalk...
ohmylove 21st-Nov-2012 02:01 am (UTC)
I work downtown. Where can I stay up to date on where they'll be?!
bloolikejazz 21st-Nov-2012 03:42 am (UTC)
is Indianapolis a nice city irl?
captaintrash 22nd-Nov-2012 12:25 am (UTC)
No, it's the stinking asshole of the state. Bloomington is where it's at.
