Parks and Recreation - Season 6 out on DVDThe penultimate season of American hit comedy Parks and Recreation begins with Councillor Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler - Saturday Night Live) on the back foot. Everyone seems to be gunning for her in a recall vote, despite her best efforts. The fortunes of her friends and colleagues are more positive: Andy (Chris Pratt – Bright Abbott in Everwood, Peter Quill in “Guardians of the Galaxy”) is offered an amazing temporary job in London, Anne and Chris have a baby on the way and Tom never stops coming up with new business ideas, some of which actually come off.

The Golden Globe-winning series continues to pull in some big guest stars including none-other than Michelle Obama, Mad Men's Jon Hamm, Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess herself), Kristen Bell ("Frozen") and Sam Elliot ("Hulk"). This Season 6 box set includes three discs jam-packed with all 22 episodes and a bundle of special features such as a celebration marking the production of the 100th episode.

As a huge fan of the show, the release of a new box set is always a joy. The sixth season certainly has plenty of choice episodes and moments of comedy gold. One example would have to be gruff Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman - "22 Jump Street") encountering his alter-ego following the bumpy merger of Pawnee with its swankier neighbour, Eagleton. Another is the way Ben (Adam Scott - "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty") is greeted as some kind of accounting messiah by his new firm, a reaction reminiscent of the awe-inspired aliens from "Toy Story".

There are a few bumps along the road for this season, however. Chris Pratt's absence for roughly a quarter of the episodes (whilst he was filming "Guardians of the Galaxy") leaves a bit of a vacuum, and the eventual exit of Anne (Rashida Jones - "The Social Network") and Chris (the inimitable Rob Lowe – Sam Seaborn in The West Wing) is a bittersweet event.

Despite this, the show is always entertaining and frequently laugh-out-loud funny. New characters like drama-queen Craig (Billy Eichner) help to freshen things up, and existing bit-parts like the meddling Councilman Jamm (Jon Glaser - Girls) and the endearingly daft TV presenter Perd Hapley (Jay Jackson - "Fast & Furious 5") keep the show on track.

Bonus features include:

  • Deleted Scenes
  • Parks and Recreation in Europe
  • The Hapley Group
  • 100th Episode Feature
  • Rashida and Rob Farewells
  • T-Dazzle Commercial
  • Chipp McCapp Music Video
  • Producer's extended episodes of "Second Chunce", "Flu Season 2" and "Moving Up".
  • Gag Reel and more...!
