Amy Poehler and her cohorts shine in one of the sitcom's sharpest outings yet. Leslie (Poehler) is floored when she discovers a neighboring -- and much ritzier -- city has fenced off its playground just to keep Pawnee's less fancy residents out. The snoot behind the move is her former bestie (Parker Posey, a perfectly cast foil). Watching Leslie fight for good while swapping grade-A barbs is smart and feisty fun. (NBC, 9:30 P.M.)
