Looking for clarity on the race? Watch where Trump and Biden travel.

Welcome to the watch-what-they-do finale of the presidential campaign. Don’t pay attention to what the candidates and their aides are saying about their closing strategies. The best way to tell which states President Trump and Joseph R. Biden Jr. think are in play is to track their campaign travel.

Trips are being announced just a few days in advance, and the operative word is tentative. Candidates will make last-minute adjustments to their schedules based on the latest information from overnight polls (or prodding from worried supporters).

Case in point: Mr. Biden paid a quick trip to Pennsylvania on Monday. This is one of the most contested states on the map, which the president narrowly won last time and where polls now show Mr. Biden ahead. Mr. Trump has traveled so often to the state in recent days that it seems only a matter of time until Pennsylvania starts hitting him up for its resident income tax.

Mr. Biden heads to Georgia on Tuesday and to Iowa later in the week, two states Mr. Trump won in 2016 that are on the edge of the Democrats-have-a-chance map. It’s an aggressive move. Should Mr. Biden lose next Tuesday, expect the second-guessing brigade to inspect his decision to play offense when perhaps the game called for defense, and to invoke the trip Hillary Clinton made to Arizona at the end of the 2016 campaign.

But he is also going to Tampa, signaling how important Florida is, and how Democrats have put the president on the defensive in a state that he needs to win. (If early returns show Mr. Biden winning Florida next week, watch Democrats begin to pop the champagne.) And he is also heading to Wisconsin, as he tries to nail down the three Rust Belt states — the other two are Pennsylvania and Michigan — that lifted Mr. Trump over the 270 electoral vote hurdle four years ago.

Mr. Trump is spending a lot of time on defense this week, heading to states that he won in 2016 and where he is struggling today: Arizona and, of course, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Assuming Mr. Trump can hold on to the rest of his 2016 map (and that may be a big assumption), he needs to hold just one of the three key Midwestern states to win re-election.

Interestingly, Mr. Trump is also going to Nevada, a state that Mrs. Clinton won in 2016. Nevada has not been extensively polled, and the surveys that have been done show a tight race there. Some clarity about the state of play in Nevada could come later Tuesday with the latest New York Times/Siena College Poll, which we expect to release around 1 p.m. Eastern.

Wanderlust guaranteed! Harry Styles’ drives around Amalfi coast in Golden music video, gives dreamy European vacation vibes. WATCH – travel

Harry Styles’ most recent single Golden’s music video is guaranteed to give you wanderlust especially after all these months cooped up at home on account of the coronavirus lockdown. The English singer-songwriter released the music video for his song Golden on Monday (local time) that features the ultimate vision of a European dream. The 26-year-old former ‘One Direction’ member dropped the video on Twitter and noted, “GOLDEN. OUT NOW.” The three-minute-twenty-nine second picturesque video begins with Harry singing as he runs through an empty highway tunnel and countryside road. Then, he drives a vintage car and takes a swim in a lagoon. In some shots, Harry is seen in a turquoise blazer and patterned collar shirt paired with bell bottom pants. In others, he is caught in a barely buttoned white top and tan shorts, but ultimately, the star ditched the shirts altogether as he posed in front of a colourful body of water, exposing his heavily tattooed upper half.

 

“Golden, golden, golden / As I open my eyes / Hold it, focus, hoping / Take me back to the light,” he sings. “I know you were way too bright for me / I’m hopeless, broken / So you wait for me in the sky Browns my skin just right.”

As per E!News, ‘Golden’ is the opening song of the singer’s 2019 album ‘Fine Line’ and the fourth music video, the latest being ‘Watermelon Sugar’ which was released in May. The upbeat track was covered by Kelly Clarkson on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’, during the show’s ‘Kellyoke’ segment. Styles also made headlines earlier this month when 72-year-old Stevie Nicks–who Harry has a special bond with–shared that she’d be interested in the 26-year-old if he were closer to her age. As reported by E!News, during an interview with the Los Angeles Times in September, the legendary singer-songwriter said an older version of Harry “would be a good thing.”

Where to Watch Now It Has Left Netflix

Parks and Recreation is the latest show Netflix has lost in the so-called “streaming wars”. At the end of October, all seven of the Amy Poehler comedy’s seven seasons left the American version of the streaming service in order to move to a new home. The NBC show is also set to leave Amazon Prime Video and Hulu in order to stream on the NBCUniversal service Peacock.

However, at the time of writing, the show is still available to watch on Hulu. However, it is unlikely to be there for long, with multiple outlets reporting last month that the show was leaving all of its former streaming homes in order to come to Peacock. As such, Hulu subscribers may want to binge it while they have the chance as Parks and Rec‘s days on the streamer are probably numbered.

All seven seasons, however, are streaming now on Peacock, as well as the recent lockdown reunion which aired on NBC earlier this year.

Those who have not yet signed up for Peacock can currently watch the show online on a number of other streaming services—for now. Around a quarter of the episodes of the show will be available across October on Sling, DirecTV and FuboTV, for example. Episodes are also made available to stream on-demand on the Comedy Central website as they air on the channel.

For Parks and Rec fans who prefer to buy series passes for the show can buy all seven seasons on Apple TV, Google Play, Fandango Now, Amazon, Microsoft Store and Vudu.

However, Peacock and Hulu are currently the only places where all of Parks and Recreation is now streaming. The fact that the show is now of Peacock may be frustrating for Netflix subscribers, but it is actually good news for viewers who want to watch the show online for free.

Parks and Rec Seasons 1 to 7 are available with ads via the free tier of Peacock. If after watching the Amy Poehler comedy you want more access to the wider catalog of Peacock, the service costs $4.99 a month with ads or $9.99 without them.

For those who want to watch Hulu, meanwhile, it costs $5.99 a month with ads and $11.99 without them—or $49.99 and $119.99 a year respectively. Both Peacock and Hulu also offer a seven-day free trial, giving fans another way to watch Parks and Rec online for free.

Parks and Recreation is not the only show to have left Netflix to join the catalog of Peacock. Cheers, Frasier and Parenthood are already gone, while The Office is leaving the streamer on January 1, 2021.

‘A Parks and Recreation Special’: Watch Full Special

“This is not the way TV is be supposed to be made.”

This was Michael Schur, co-creator of Parks and Recreation, on a call with reporters earlier this week to discuss the improbable creation and production of A Parks and Recreation Special. The half-hour bonus episode of the beloved NBC comedy, which aired its series finale back in 2015, was conceived as a way to raise money for Feeding America. Written by Schur and many other Parks and Rec alums, and featuring virtually the entire cast(*), plus familiar friends who guest-starred in the original run, the special was designed and shot to accommodate the ongoing quarantine. The action takes place during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the actors all filmed their parts separately using iPhones. The plot, such as it exists, involves Poehler’s superhumanly optimistic civil servant Leslie Knope checking in on all her loved ones during this time of crisis.

(*) Paul Schneider’s Mark Brendanawicz remains conspicuously erased from the series’ institutional memory, and there was no cameo by Billy Eichner, whose high-strung Craig was a regular character in the final season. But the loosey-goosey nature of the special meant that, for the first time ever, the catchy opening title sequence included all four of Rashida Jones, Rob Lowe, Retta, and Jim O’Heir. 

The original Parks finale — which featured flash-forwards detailing the ultimate fates of Leslie and all her friends — was so definitive and perfect in tone that Schur had no intention of ever reviving the show in any form. These are extraordinary circumstances, however, which meant not only bringing Leslie, Ben Wyatt, Ron Effing Swanson, and the rest of the gang from Pawnee out of retirement, but violating many of Schur’s fundamental beliefs about how television should be crafted. On that press call, he described TV production as “a team sport… It’s about groups of people functioning in holistic ways with each other and collaborating and being in the same room at the same time.” While Parks in its heyday could generate big laughs just by having actors talk to (or dance in front of) the camera, the series was at its best when that remarkable cast got to bounce off of one another (sometimes literally) in the same physical space.

The special obviously didn’t allow for any of that. The only actors sheltering in place together are spouses Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally, which allowed her to do a brief (and wonderful) cameo as Ron’s evil second ex-wife, Tammy 2. And even she’s bound and gagged in the background at the time we see her, limiting their interaction to the point where she might as well be on another Gryzzl call(*). The show’s core couples are given quick, in-story reasons for not being in a room together: Leslie is off handling her job with the National Park Service while Ben (Adam Scott) is home with their kids; Andy (Chris Pratt) has been locked in the shed for two days and doesn’t want April (Aubrey

How to watch tonight’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ TV reunion

NBC and Universal Television’s highly anticipated “A Parks and Recreation Special” airs tonight, five years after the beloved TV show wrapped its seven-season run in 2015.

Announced last week, the scripted, 30-minute special will benefit hunger-relief nonprofit Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund and feature the series’ original cast.

Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir and Retta will be there, as well as “several guest stars from the Pawnee universe,” according to NBC’s announcement.

“Hi! I’m Amy Poehler, inviting you to a very special reunion of ‘Parks and Rec,’ all shot from our homes,” Poehler said in a promotional video Monday. “We are coming together to raise money for Feeding America, and we hope you’ll join us.”

In the special, the Indiana town’s most optimistic resident, Leslie Knope (Poehler), connects with fellow citizens in a time of social distancing.

In a recent conference call with Entertainment Weekly, series co-creator Michael Schur said that “the whole special is not about the disease, honestly. It’s about people coping with it and sort of trying to navigate in their daily lives.”

“A Parks and Recreation Special” will air tonight at 8:30 p.m. Pacific on NBC, preceded at 8 p.m. by “The Paley Center Salutes Parks and Recreation,” which was filmed at last year’s PaleyFest LA.

How to Watch Thursday’s ‘Parks & Recreation’ Reunion

If anyone was going to be the best at social distancing while also simultaneously keeping all their friends happy and connected, it would be Leslie Knope.

While we all bid a fond farewell to Leslie and the Parks & Recreation crew in February 2015, the gang is getting back together for one more show. Even better, it’s one more show set in our current timeline. Yes, the one where we’re all staying at home to stay safe from COVID-19.

A brand new episode of Parks & Recreation will air this Thursday at 8:30pm ET on NBC to raise money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.

The show will include the whole original cast, which includes Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott, Aubrey Plaza, Rob Lowe, Jim O’Heir, and Retta. It will follow the Parks & Rec’s cast’s attempts to stay connected while also staying apart, attempts that are of course spearheaded by everyone’s favorite government employee, Leslie Knope.

All of the footage for the episode was shot in the actors’ respective homes.

If you want to watch, then the easiest way to do so is obviously to just tune in via your television. NBC is free to watch over the air, so as long as you have cable or a digital antenna you should be good to go.

Now Ready for Pre-Order, the Inevitable Disney Face Masks Are…

If not, then the majority of streaming services offer access to NBC as well. With all of them, you can get a free trial for a week and catch the show for free. Here’s a rundown of your options and what they’ll all cost if you forget to cancel that free trial.

Hulu with Live TV $54.99 per month

YouTubeTV $49.99 per month

AT&T TV Now $50 per month

FuboTV $55 for the first month

Sling TV – $20 for the first month

It’s also worth noting that NBC isn’t going to be available on every service in every single market. While you’ll be able to watch it on most services in most places, make sure it’s available where you are on the service you’ve chosen before you sign up. You don’t want to be a Jerry and accidentally sign up for the service that won’t have it available.
