A synopsis from Wikipedia:
"The series follows the ambitions of perennially upbeat mid-level bureaucrat Leslie Knope, on her quest to better the town of Pawnee, Indiana. As deputy director of the city's Parks and Recreation Department, her sense of enthusiasm is rarely shared by her unmotivated colleagues, who include the wisecracking Tom, placid city planner Mark Brendanawicz, deadpan department head Ron Swanson, and his droll assistant April Ludgate. Leslie's newly found best friend is a local nurse Ann Perkins, whom she meets when Ann's immature boyfriend Andy Dwyer tumbles into a large pit near their house. Leslie takes on the quest to turn the pit into a park, which becomes her ultimate personal project. However, she finds herself repeatedly frustrated by bureaucrats and townspeople who stand in her way. While the pit-park storyline occupied the show's first season, the pit was filled in during second season, and the plot gradually began to explore Leslie's other projects and personal issues, including a fledgling romance. The second season also focuses on the personal lives of all of the Parks Department employees, as well as Ann's new romance with Mark and April's affections for Ann's ex-boyfriend, Andy."
When the show first premiered last spring, it mostly received negative reviews. However, much like the American version of The Office, this show has steadily improved in its second season. In my own humble opinion, it's the best prime time comedy on network tv right now.
