Thursday night NBC aired A Parks and Recreation Special, a new episode of the series that reunited pretty much the entire cast of the beloved sitcom...albeit via everyone's homes, Zoom style. (It was not Zoom but similar tech from Gryzzl, the company that figures into the final season of the show.) Written by showrunner Mike Schur and other producers/writers from the series, it was warm and funny -- even though there wasn't much of a plot --  and well done given the constraints everyone is under currently. Jean-Ralphio (Ben Schwartz) and a wordless surprise cameo from a featured player kinda steal the show if you ask me.

The special was also created to help raise money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund, and it's collected $3 million as of Friday, and is continuing to accept donations through May 21. With that, NBC has made A Parks and Recreation Special free to watch on YouTube and you can do so below.
