Stars: Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 11, 2011 As NBC mulls the fate of PARKS AND RECREATION (it would seem an impossibility that they wouldn’t bring it back, even for a truncated season), the fourth season finale “Win, Lose Or Draw” proves why the show shouldn’t be on the bubble, and deserves a few more seasons of its well-oiled comedy.

Stars:Elizabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Jerry O’Connell, Ving Rhames, Jessica Szohr, Steven R. McQueen, Christopher Lloyd, Richard Dreyfuss Writer: Peter Goldfinger, Josh Stolberg Director:Alejandre Aja Distributor: Sony Home Entertainment/Dimension Films Suggested Retail Price: $34.95 Not since SNAKES ON A TRAIN has a mainstream feature film so embraced its inner cheesiness and heralded it proudly in its marketing campaign then last summer’s PIRANHA. Released in 3D, it featured so much gore and nudity (not to mention a glorious underwater girl-on-girl ballet), that it clearly honored its exploitative roots as a remake of the 1979 Joe Dante directed original.
