SPOLIER ALERT! If you haven’t finished watching the series there are spoilers in this post.
In honor of the end of the TV show, tonight I will be having a Parks & Recreation Viewing Waffle Party. I discovered Parks & Rec last year during the lull between the release of House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black. I remembered having watched a few episodes out of order some years back and not liking the show. Then, one lazy weekend, we decided to give it another try – from the beginning. I’m glad I waited so long that the first six seasons were available on Netflix because we binge watched them like maniacs.
Needless to say, I will be sorely missing these characters. I will miss the non-stop Leslie Knope – saintly go-getter and fierce feminist always looking out for her friends. I will miss her “Ovaries before Brovaries”, “Uteruses before Duderuses”, and “Galentine’s Day”.
I also loved the ongoing fictitious companies that made jabs at real life companies like Paunch Burger poking fun at fast food. Other things I will miss: Perd Hapley’s strange diction, Tom Haveford’s low key jokes (“nice tie dimple”), poor sad sack Garry, the cute relationship between Andy & April, insanely spoiled John-Ralphio & his sister Mona Lisa (played by Jenny Slate), and of course Ron Swanson. I’m so glad I can binge watch the new season of House of Cards this Friday to alleviate the sadness. Au revoir Parks & Recreation. I had a blast!
Shop Gifts Ideas For Parks & Recreations Fans
So keep an eye out. If you see anyone freak out over the show’s ending like me, then they have outed themselves as Parks and Rec fans. In the future, when you have to give them a gift, you can find them something related to the show they loved and recently lost. That’s what I do when I need to give someone a gift. I am alert year round to what they like and then I have lots of ideas when it comes down to picking a gift. I found some incredible fan art on Society6!
Tom and Donna’s Treat Yo’ Self escapades were an ongoing gag throughout the series. Now, if I’m on the fence on a splurge you can bet I yell out “Treat yo self!” when I pull the trigger. Hee hee :) This artwork is also available in other colors and in mugs, shirts, iPhone cases, pillows and more. So check out the site for more goodies.
This week I started watching the Breaking Bad spin off, Better Call Saul. Holy moly, it’s so great! I was left with a tv show void once the finale of Breaking Bad aired. There hasn’t been a show that truly grabs me since the Walter White saga ended – until the premier of Better Call Saul.
WARNING! SPOILER ALERT! (Skip this paragraph if you don’t want to read a spoiler.) What I love about this show is that it uses the same story telling and character development as Breaking Bad. So, even though Walter White is not in the show, it feels like you’re watching an episode of Breaking Bad. I actually might end up liking this show more because it builds on Breaking Bad. Characters like Mike and Tuco cross over and appear on Better Call Saul. So you get to watch the new show with a new story line but you also get to be on the look out for easter eggs referencing Breaking Bad. Yes, I am a total Breaking Bad fangirl and I love it! Things like the nail salon Saul Goodman tried to get Walter White to use as a front for their drug business turns out to be the place where he very first started. James Mcgill, Saul Goodman’s real name, starts out by renting a dingy little space as his first office in the nail Salon.
A must have for any Dr. Who fan. It features light and sound effects. The talking cookie jar is activated by pushing the lamp or closing the lid.

Any fans of pop culture TV shows the likes of Lost, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Parks & Recreation and The X-Files are in for a treat. Artist Patrick Fatica, has a talent for capturing my favorite characters in his paintings. The image above is Patrick’s rendition of Jack Nicholson’s character, Jack Torrance, in The Shining. In this piece, as in many of Patrick Fatica’s pieces, I am drawn to the storytelling he accomplishes through the character’s eyes. The eyes are a well of unanswered questions that draw you into Patrick’s work, leaving you admiring the details and searching for answers.
We’re mega excited about the mini season Breaking Bad finale airing this Sunday. We’ve been long time fans of the show, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul and Bob Odenkirk. So we decided to showcase our favorite Breaking Bad art prints. Most of them are part of a Breaking Bad Themed Art Show at Gallery 1988 but there are a few that stand on their own such as Kyle Hilton’s paper dolls. Keep reading after the jump for some amazing art. Enjoy!
