Zap2it’s resident TV Gal named Leslie Knope as one of TV’s most improved characters of the new fall season.
Says Amy Amatangelo:
As I stated at the beginning of the season, Amy Poehler’s Leslie Knope went from being a goofy, awkward one-dimensional character this season to a complete character. And with each episode, she gets better and better. Sure Leslie is still goofy and awkward but thanks to Poehler’s nuanced performance Leslie is optimistic but not an idiot. She actually might be good at her job. I like that she has a boyfriend this season. I like that her friendship with Ann has continued to blossom and I like that she got that darn pit filled. It also helps that the show has become much more funny. The Halloween episode that had Leslie facing off against her teenage nemesis was definitely a highlight.
