On this week's episode of Parenting Roundabout's entertainment-themed Round 2, we discuss the closing ceremonies of Rio 2016, watch our next to last batch of Parks and Recreation episodes, and check in on the latest West Wing Weekly offering. Here's your road map:

00:57 Olympics closing ceremonies — Rio's closing party had lots of color and activity, lots of relaxed athletes, and lots of selfies with Simone Biles.

14:10 Parks and Recreation marathon — Also getting close to its closing ceremonies is our Parks and Recreation watch, as we knock out the middle four episodes of Season 7: "Gryzzlbox" (see video), "Save JJ's," "Donna & Joe," and "Ms. Ludgate-Dwyer Goes to Washington."

24:18 West Wing watch— Following along with the West Wing Weekly podcast, we watched "Let Bartlet Be Bartlet." Jen Barkley would never have left such a memo mess, Mandy.

For next week's episode, we'll be watching our last four Parks and Rec eps (sniff!): "Pie-Mary," "The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show," "Two Funerals," and "One Last Ride," and the West Wing episode "Mandatory Minimums." Watch along! And if you want to join us for a Sports Night watch when we're done with Parks and Rec and get a weekly double-dose of Sorkin, you can watch it for free on (if you can stand all the ads).
