Never count your weddings before they match

Last Monday, WIRED published an article titled Why Parks and Recreation’s Final Season Was Its Best Ever. Whether or not you agree with the piece’s premise, one thing is clear: published the day before NBC actually aired the Parks & Rec finale, the article was clearly premature. Just consider the following excerpt [SPOILERS AHEAD]:

Parks and Rec, a series that has perfected the art of the sitcom wedding, had its lowest-key nuptials as its last in “Donna and Joe.”

“Its last”? Really? Here’s a screenshot from the finale:

Even if you charitably try to take WIRED’s claim at the greatest possible level of generality — “Parks and Rec . . . had its lowest-key nuptials as its last in “Donna and Joe.”” — do you really believe that Craig Middlebrooks’ wedding could reasonably be described as ‘low-key’?
