Why I'll Miss Mark Brendanawicz

Why I'll Miss Mark Brendanawicz

The following post comes from BuzzSugar Community member ShannoninSF, who submitted it to Pawnee Citizens: The Parks and Recreation Fan Group.

Bad news for Parks and Recreation fans: Paul Schneider, AKA Mark Brendanawicz, is leaving the show at the end of this season. Mark may not be beloved by every P&R fan, but it's mainly just because his character is not as outrageously hilarious as the rest of the cast is. Either way, I'm a huge Schneider fan and am mourning this loss. To that extent, I give you: my five reasons for why I'll miss Mark.

  • He's the welcome straight man in a sea of craziness. Who's going to keep Tom, Ron, and Leslie in check now?

  • He's keeping Ann and Andy apart. I want Andy for April!
  • Paul Schneider is adorable. Now I will have to funnel all my crush energy into Andy and Tom.
  • We'll lose his evolution into a committed guy. How cute was he on Valentine's Day with all the gifts?
  • I don't want any of the current chemistry of the cast to change, no matter how weak the character.

Are you going to miss Mark/Paul Schneider on Parks and Rec?

Yeah, I'm with Kimmie. I don't think the character really brings anything to the show. Every comedy with crazy characters/situations needs a straight man, but all he does is throw in an occasional one-liner. Besides, I like Adam Scott, so I'm on board to see what the new blood will bring!

I don't even know if I'll notice if he leaves. He's very unmemorable on the show.

Also, it seems like Ann & Mark dating makes it more believable that she's around the office so much. It might be kinda weird if he's gone.

Oh, man. That stinks. That wacky group really does need a straight man. I hope they'll work somebody into the cast next season to fill that role in his absence.
