TV Gal names Leslie Knope as one of her favorite characters of 2009
December 14th, 2009
From Zap2it’s TV Gal:
[Amy Poehler's] show easily wins the most improved award. Poehler has delicately balanced Leslie’s gung-ho enthusiasm and naïve optimism without ever making her seem incompetent or silly. Even last week, when Leslie pulled down her pants on live TV, I was proud of her not embarrassed by her behavior. Amidst a wacky work environment, Poehler has created a character I can’t help but root for – she oozes believable emotions (no one does a crestfallen face like Poehler) and I kind of think she’s pretty good at her job.
