Saw your show on the issue of migrants not being paid appropriately. I feel like I understand being a veteran people say they love us and respect us and we have to fight for everything we deserve. These people do so much for our country with no love and then have to fight and have no love when it comes to opening their pockets. And now a president that has zero regard for empathy unless for supermodel that has a umpa lompa fetish. White and embarrassed for how this country is acting and allowing mental patient run this country. Feels way to close to Russia. Thanks for standing up for these hard working Americans. Thanks Shane

Welcome To Sweden is a fantastic show! I got all the humor the whole time through! Thanks for at least the two seasons that were made. The decision to cancel it was a mistake. Main thought here; Welcome To Sweden was one of the best TV shows EVER made and in the future, maybe it will be recognized as such. I theorize that having to read subtitles may have discouraged about 40% or more of the average American viewer which explains the low ratings. The ratings were wrong in this case. This show was SO GOOD ! I hope someone is talking about making a third season and more with another network.

Turned 70 last year so guess that makes me an official comedy expert...maybe. Anyway I tape all the episodes of Parks and Recreation, and whenever I want to laugh out loud I watch one or several.
Though I censor some episodes, our grandson (12) watches them with us. He’s on our comedy wavelength and is seriously brilliant and is usually on the floor with laughter. Every person in the cast...also hilarious.
So thanks for being the funniest, ever in the universe, comedian.
Oh, and when our grandson was three, I introduced him to Jerry Lewis movies which he watched over and over. He would ask his friends if they had heard of Jerry Lewis and they had no idea who that was.
He forced all his buddies to watch the movies in the car driving to and from school. Anyway funny is funny and we think you’re the best!
All best,

Excuse me amy poehler you are great, go women in comedy, luuuuuvvvvv.
the way in which you treat garry/jerry/larry/lenny in parks and rec is very upsetting to me as a viewer!
You should display more kindness.Jokes are cheap when they are at the expense of a nice person like garry/jerry/larry/lenny.
Please take some time to look at yourself in the mijrror and think about the msg you are sending to your viewers. picking on people is not nice.
thank you
kind regards

Amy! I’ve recently had my fourth baby and find myself in a bit of a funk trying to manage everything whilst sleep deprived. Naturally, I have turned to Leslie for a pick me up. Have watched Parks and Rec three times now and it never ever ever fails to both make me laugh and inspire me. Thanks for such a great character 😊
