This image released by NBC shows Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope in a scene from "Parks and Recreation." Knope, a dedicated public servant in fictional Pawnee, Ind., used to be Deputy Parks Director, but at the end of last season, she won a seat on the Pawnee City Council. The high drama of this political season has been echoed by episodic TV like CBS' "The Good Wife," and Showtime's "Homeland" where character Nicholas Brody returns home after eight years' imprisonment in Afghanistan and becomes a U.S. Congressman.
