I think a large problem in Poehler. I have always thought her to be more hype than chops; She came up through Improv Olympic- not really the teeth-sharpening place it once was (college types have to laugh at "expert" improvers), Conan- quirky-gimme, SNL- she had some real floppish moments that were forgiven. AP was really lucky to have this image of, like a progressive politician, that liking her was some civic duty.
She's really not funny

Please do not listen to this reviewer. This show has some wonderful characters, some really funny writing and tons of room to grow. Furthermore, Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope- contrary to what is stated here- is totally engaging and is proving to be much different from Michael Scott as she develops. The show deserves viewing past the pilot episode, as it keeps getting better. Can't wait for next season!
