Stream of consciousness: I’ve been sick all weekend and binge-watching Parks and Recreation. I need to write a blog post for Monday. Are there any links between Parks and Recreation and HGTV? Must find out.

The answer is yes, there are. Some random connections:

Actress Sarah Wright played Millicent, Jerry Gergich’s daughter on Parks and Recreation. She and her husband appeared on an episode of House Hunters while searching for a vacation home in Jackson, WY.

The HGTV website did a feature on throwing a Galentine’s Day party a la Leslie Knope, Amy Poehler’s character on Parks and Recreation.

HGTV.ca featured the New York apartment of Rashida Jones, Parks and Recreation’s Ann Perkins.

Parks and Recreation, which takes place in a small town in Indiana, filmed an episode in Indianapolis. Good Bones, which features mother/daughter team Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak, films in Indianapolis.

Nick Offerman, Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, said he and his wife like to stay home and read books, play cards, watch HGTV.

Hilary Clinton watched Parks and Recreation and watches HGTV shows such as Love It or List It and Beachfront Bargain Hunt.
