Fun with Foreshadowing

Lately, I’m really loving re-watching seasons of my fave TV shows, mostly because I’m running out of new series. haha Right now I’m restarting Parks and Recreation since I don’t remember most of the early episodes. Most of the time, I do not like to watch things I’ve already seen but I make an exception for Adam Scott ❤

Also, I know this is an unpopular opinion but I never understood why people hate Mark Brendanawicz so much or why his character is never mentioned again after he leaves. I feel like he was Ann’s only functional relationship and yeah, maybe there was a lack of passion but mostly I think she broke up with him because she had unhealthy ideas of what it meant to be in love due to her long term stint with Andy. And I don’t know if I’m convinced that Ann got the happy ending she deserved by having a baby with Chris….

ANYWAY, I’m sorry for that mini rant and now on to the real reason I’ve been inspired to write this post. As I’ve been finishing the second season (CUE BEN WYATT ❤ )I’ve noticed a few little moments of foreshadowing to future seasons. Whether or not intentional, it’s always fun to pick up on things that you wouldn’t have caught.

The ones I’ve found so far were in the 2nd season I think when Tom was talking about his aspirations and he mentioned wanting to have a place called “Tom’s Bistro” which does become a reality for him a few seasons later 🙂 Also, in the episode where Leslie goes out on a blind date with the MRI doctor (played by actual husband at the time Will Arnett) he mentions how much room she has “down there” for child bearing that she could probably handle triplets.

I know there are probably a bunch more easter eggs but these are the ones that stuck with me because I’m still finishing the 2nd season. But I always love when writers go that extra mile with continuity. ‘Cause you know how often TV shows just disregard character and plot development to do whatever the hell they want *cough HIMYM cough* and we still forgive them… most of the time.
