Tonight’s Parks & Recreation features a concerned citizen, namely, Patton Oswalt, filibustering the city council vote and making Amy Poehler look visibly disgusted. So what does he do for eight minutes? He talks about the new Star Wars film.
Now, Oswalt is wise and Star Wars is great, so having these together makes for some incredible improv. Apparently, he didn’t even have to talk about Star Wars, the producers told him he could filibust about anything he wanted. His version of Episode VII actually starts out with a quasi-canonical version of the universe (because it’s totally realistic), as if he’s building for some incredibly epic yarn, before he takes a turn for a Marvel tie-in. This reminds me not only how large Disney’s empire is now, but how sad it is that they’ll be releasing Star Wars films every year starting in 2015.
Anyway, I won’t spoil the rest, just watch it. It’s classic.
