Watch 22 glorious minutes of 'Parks and Recreation' season 5 bloopers -- VIDEO

A Parks and Rec gag reel that’s as long as an actual episode of Parks and Rec? That sounds like LIT-trally the greatest thing that has ever existed.

Warning: NSFW language ahead, along with many scenes of Chris Pratt giggling.

Fall TV Wish List: What we want from the new (and last?) season of 'Parks and Recreation'

Here at EW, Fall TV Wish List is a new weekly series in which our TV critics Melissa Maerz and Jeff Jensen weigh in on what they hope the coming season will bring for some of their favorite shows. Today: NBC’s Parks and Recreation, which premieres its sixth season on Sept. 26.

WHERE WE LEFT OFF
Ace “detective” work by Bert Macklin revealed that manly-man master woodsman Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman) and his mustache (as himself) had conceived a child with his single mom girlfriend Diane (Lucy Lawless). After refusing to sell Rent-A-Swag to a mystery buyer (Diddy?!), Tom (Aziz Ansari) learned that said mystery buyer was opening a rival shop across the street. April (Aubrey Plaza) was accepted to Veterinary School; wither the impact on her marriage to Andy (Chris Pratt)? And after a seemingly successful rookie year as a crusading councilwoman, Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) was sandbagged during Founders’ Week by a flotilla of Knope haters who announced they were launching a recall campaign. At least she has local porn star Brandi Maxxx in her corner. That’s gotta be worth something, right?

'Drunk History': Lessons learned from 'Nashville'

Comedy Central’s Drunk History is so hilarious if you’re in the right mood, and probably even if you aren’t. So, what’d we learn from “Nashville”? (NSFW language and somewhat blurry hand gestures ahead.)

KEY ‘DRUNK HISTORY’ LESSONS for the week of AUGUST 20, 2013

–When Dolly Parton (Casey Wilson) went to New York to tell the RCA executives she was leaving The Porter Wagoner Show, her exact words were “I’m gonna be in f*cking movies. “Are you in or are you out? Back me or back the f*ck off.” And they were like yeah, sure. Whatever. Sounds fantastic. READ FULL STORY

'The To Do List': Laugh, reminisce, and even get a little misty

The To Do List is a hilarious, raunchy comedy about class of 1993 valedictorian Brandy Klark (Parks and Recreation‘s Aubrey Plaza) checking off various acts on the hand-written spreadsheet she keeps in her Trapper Keeper. It’s all in preparation for losing her virginity to Rusty Waters (Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter), a hot college guy and fellow summer lifeguard who does a mean acoustic version of Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” And, even with all the bawdiness, it made me tear up. SPOILER ALERT! READ FULL STORY

Fake live-action 'Daria' trailer obviously stars Aubrey Plaza -- VIDEO

Two years ago, MTV randomly decided to reveal its dream cast for a theoretical live-action Daria movie — starring Aubrey Plaza as the title character, Ellen Page as her BFF Jane, Emily Osment as her perky sister Quinn, and Will Ferrell and Annette Bening as her clueless parents.

The article was nothing more than an exercise in nostalgia. But now that Plaza actually has a big movie coming out, College Humor has decided to take the Daria idea and run with it.

The Parks and Rec star is the only member of MTV’s hypothetical roster who appears in this trailer for Daria’s High School Reunion, which is too bad. Generally speaking, though, the video — which features cameos from Trent Lane, Kevin, Brittany, Mr. DeMartino, and Ms. Barch, among others — is dryly funny, just like the old cartoon itself; it’ll hit you right in the nostalgias. I have only one tiny quibble: Why is Quinn, who’s at least two years younger than Daria, organizing the Class of 2002’s reunion?

Aubrey Plaza discusses the struggles of self-pleasure on camera

Aubrey-Plaza-Conan.jpg

April Ludgate is so jealous of how uncomfortable Aubrey Plaza made Conan O’Brien last night.

In hindsight, Aubrey Plaza probably should have known that filming for her raunch-fest comedy The To Do List would likely involve her acting out some private moments onscreen. But somehow she didn’t, as the actress explained on Conan. “I read it on the page, ‘Brandi masturabates’ and in my head I envisioned a nice scene where you see my hand just go out of frame…But then when I showed up, the camera was mounted on the ceiling, I was in my underwear and there were a bunch of old guys smoking [laughing] you know, the crew guys!…and then I went and touched myself.”

O’Brien may be uncomfortable, but this awkward moment is exactly the sweet spot of sorts that Plaza thrives in. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

'The To Do List': Aubrey Plaza, Alia Shawkat, and Rachel Bilson imagine Comic-Con in the '90s -- VIDEO

Who would the cast of the 1993-set teen comedy The To Do List want to see at a ’90s Comic-Con? They can all agree on one thing: Jeff Goldblum.

In the two videos below, we hang out with writer/director Maggie Carey and the cast of the film, including Rachel Bilson, Aubrey Plaza, Alia Shawkat, and Scott Porter. The film about a type-A teenage girl (played by Plaza) who is on a quest to lose her virginity to the hottest lifeguard in town (played by Scott Porter) opens in theaters July 26. The cast also laid down some of their favorite early ’90s jams — check out Porter (who also plays a guitar heartthrob in the film) singing “This Is How We Do It.” Rock on.

Happy birthday, Aubrey Plaza and Nick Offerman! Let's plan out a birthday for your 'Parks and Rec' characters

Paging Leslie Knope!

Parks and Rec co-stars Aubrey Plaza (29) and Nick Offerman  (43) both have birthdays today and could use a little celebration, Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department-style. On the show, Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope is famous for creating one-of-a-kind birthday extravaganzas that are a perfect representation of who the person is, what they like and what the hope to be. (For example, a few years back Offerman’s Ron Swanson gets steak, scotch and The Bridge on the River Kwai, which he is able to watch all alone, in peace.)

With the spirit of Leslie Knope in mind, let’s plan out a birthday celebration for Plaza and Offerman — or rather, some gifts for their beloved Parks and Recreation characters, who likely have got a lot coming up for them next season. READ FULL STORY
