Cast Of Parks And Recreation Host Google Hangout

By: Zach Walton - September 19, 2012

Google Plus Hangouts have shown tremendous promise over the years as a way for celebrities and other VIPs to connect with the common man. Today’s hangout is the ultimate fulfillment of that potential as four cast members from Parks and Recreation sit down in Google’s LA Studios to talk about season five.

Full disclosure: I’m a rabid Parks and Recreation fan. It’s only second to Arrested Development when it comes to laughs per capita. Getting to hear four of the esteemed cast members – Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt and Adam Scott – speak candidly about the show is pretty amazing. It’s not as good as Nick Offerman’s AMA, but it comes really close.

The hangout is 44 minutes long, but Google compiled a short highlight reel that shows some of the better moments from their talk.

It’s unfortunate that Google could only get part of the cast together, but it’s still a fan’s dream to see these great comedians all in one place. Fans should definitely check out the entire Hangout. It’s the best use of Google Plus Hangouts yet. The only thing that could top this would be Nick Offerman and Aziz Ansari showing up.

Speaking of Ansari, the actor who plays Tom in Parks and Recreation will be doing an AMA on Reddit tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M. Nick Offerman set the standard for entertaining AMAs so here’s hoping Ansari can keep it going.

    I never even heard of Google Plus Hangouts until I did a search for Parks and Recreation spoilers. I watched the full 44-minute long version and I loved it, which is no surprise since I love the show. I know of several people I work with at DISH who would love to see this, if they haven’t already. Unfortunately, I have a lab class tonight, and every Thursday night for the next three months, so I’m relying on my Hopper to record P&R for me. I’m not too bummed since I’ll get the chance to watch the premiere tomorrow morning, and I’ll be able to Auto Hop the commercials. Rather than manually fast-forwarding through the commercials, I’ll be able to watch it in about half the time as normal. I do want to thank you for the heads up on Ansari and Offerman’s AMAs; they’ll give me something to read over while I wait for class to start!
