Are there any good story lines coming up for Cristina and Owen on Grey's Anatomy? — Heather
NATALIE: Meredith and Callie might be on the baby train, but Cristina is definitely not. Which is bad news for Owen, who's going to start to get the procreation itch himself, according to Kevin McKidd. "They rushed into their marriage at the start of the season, and the conversations they never quite had on fundamental things about life, not just children, are going to start to creep back in," he tells us. "There are going to be some bumps for them."

Amy Poehler, Adam Scott
When we last left Pawnee — a ridiculously long eight months ago — Parks and Recreation's romantic entanglements were only beginning to get, well, really tangled.
Visiting auditors Ben (Adam Scott) and Chris (Rob Lowe) took a shine to Leslie (Amy Poehler) and Ann (Rashida Jones), but Leslie kind of hated Chris' cynical attitude toward government, and Ann kind of hated that she got drunk and hooked up with Chris. Then there's April (Aubrey Plaza), who really hated Andy (Chris Pratt) for letting Ann...

Parks and Recreation
In a rousing moment from the Season 3 premiere of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope excitedly rounds up her disbanded parks department. Tom's been working at Foot Locker, Ron's been in his wood shop, and Jerry ... well, Jerry's been relaxing happily since Pawnee's local government went out of business at the end of last season. With her troops gathered, Leslie makes her Hail Mary play, a bold proposal to the state auditors threatening to shut down the broke branch for good.
"She's like, 'Go big or go home,'" says Amy Poehler, who plays TV's chirpiest and most resilient civil servant. "'I say we put on this giant harvest festival. We try to get all the vendors, all the people in town, we raise the money we need for the parks department budget. If we don't make it, we're all fired.'"
Leslie’s high-stakes dilemma is not unlike the one faced by Parks as the show nears its return.

Parks and Recreation
Rashida Jones wants us to know that Parks and Recreation is not The Office's stepchild. But Jones says that big things are coming this season, both for that desolate pit and for the love lives of both Ann and Leslie (Amy Poehler).

TVGuide.com: How is the show different this season?
Jones: I hope that people who watch The Office can now see that it's definitely different, but it's the kind of thing that you would want to watch if you like that show. Hopefully there's enough distance now. It's like becoming friends with an ex once you've had a little time after you broke up. Hopefully we'll be able to be friends now...
