Parks and Recreation - Season 5 out on DVDSeason 5 of Parks and Recreation arrives on DVD with 22 cracking episodes and plenty of special features to keep fans' appetites sated. Newly-elected Pawnee city councillor Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler - Saturday Night Live) continues marching towards her ultimate goal of the White House, all the time coming up against interference from corrupt or absurdly incompetent colleagues, and meddlesome members of the public.

Leslie's friends and co-workers in the Parks department continue to stand by her, all the time wrestling with their own personal issues and career paths. Entrepreneur Tom (Aziz Ansari – “Epic”) dreams up his next wacky business concept, dim-witted Andy (Chris Pratt – “The Lego Movie"” evolves his pretend PI persona into a genuine wish to become a policeman, and Ben (Adam Scott – “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) is in high demand after a successful congressional campaign.

Guest stars this season include Lucy Lawless (Xena, Spartacus), Patton Oswalt (Justified, Marvel's Agents of Shield), Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad), with cameos from US Vice President Joe Biden and Senator John McCain!

As followers of the show know, Parks’ real strength is its effortless combination of wonderful personas getting into ridiculous situations, and the fifth season continues to throw up hilarious scenarios with aplomb. It is impossible to have a favourite character because they are all adorably daft and most of them get plenty of screen time to act-up for the camera.

One stand-out moment for Breaking Bad fans is when gruff Ron (Nick Offerman – “21 Jump Street"” and Ben's glumly aggressive father (Banks) clash at a buffet table. There is one king prawn left and both men are not in the habit of backing down. Those in the know appreciate how scary Banks can be, and this character is almost as fearsome!

It is all too easy to run out of superlatives where Parks and Recreation is concerned, so my advice is to snap this gem up right now!

  • Episode 13 “Emergency Response” Producer's Extended Cut
