How Will Parks and Recreation Address Chris Pratt's Rock-Hard Abs?

Chris Pratt

Andy Dwyer is no longer the chubby shoe shiner we fell in love with.

In case you missed it, Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt is going to star in the upcoming Marvel superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy — and he's certainly been preparing to play a superhero. Earlier this week, Pratt unveiled his rock-hard body on Instagram, and noted that he got his new defined abs by going six months without beer. But that puts his NBC comedy into quite a predicament because Andy Dwyer has never been one to exercise.

The Thursday Playlist: Parks and Rec Finale, Newhart Visits Big Bang Theory

Amy Poehler

Something you don't expect any NBC show that isn't The Voice to be asking: "Are you better off than a year ago?" Leave it to cockeyed optimist Leslie Knope (the sublime Amy Poehler), the hopeful heart and resilient soul of Parks and Recreation, to set herself up for a smackdown in the too-soon season finale (Thursday, 9:31/8:31c), by posing this question at a public forum that she naively sees as a "victory lap" to celebrate her one-year anniversary in office. While Leslie contends with a Pawnee version of Tea Party-style opposition — in this town, more like "sweet tea," with extra sugar in a 512 oz. cup — Andy (Chris Pratt) adopts his bumbling "Burt Macklin, FBI" persona (always a win) to solve a mystery that could change one of his co-worker's life forever. NBC is certainly better off for sticking with this show as it has improved over the seasons to become the network's most reliably enjoyable comedy — even though this already eventful and possibly pivotal episode would have been better off without the subplot involving Tom's "Rent-a-Swag" business and his contentious relationship with Jean-Ralphio's horror-show sister Mona Lisa (Jenny Slate).
