Parks And Recreation is criminally underrated and one of the best ensembles on TV. They figured out how to make comedy out of people who like things, as opposed to the usual sitcom where it’s just people being awful to each other. Turns out passion can heighten things in the same way that conflict does. And that delights me.

Not only that, but I’ve often marveled at how much of the comedy comes from the lead character’s extreme competence. Most comedies are about people who screw things up.
Personally, I believe “Young Adult” to be an arbitrary title that means the book can be enjoyed by anyone, has a main character who’s not quite an adult, and isn’t really boring.
