Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Andy, who went from an insufferable Jerk Ass who took advantage of Ann's generosity to an adorable but earnest Manchild who fully supports April's dreams. To a lesser extent, Chris. He goes from a rather flat, Innocently Insensitive fitness nut to a well rounded fitness nut with a load of personal problems.
Craig went through therapy in the Time Skip between Seasons 6 and 7, so his shouting and anger issues are toned down drastically. The character was meant to be a Straight Manbut his lack of quirks and comedic chemistry with the other characters made the fans dub him the weakest link of the cast, to the point some considered him a bland Jim Halpert clone. Eventually, he was Put on a Bus and the fans didn't really miss him when he left, nor did they clamor for his return when it became a Long Bus Trip.

Other fans also disliked Mark for being an underwhelming love interest for Leslie and Ann. It's hard to find someone who's actually a genuine fan of Jeremy Jamm since he's an unrepentant asshole who is often annoyingly grating, and rarely ever gets his comeuppance Many of the citizens of Pawnee fall into this category if you don't find them funny. Although they are almost always Played for Laughsthey are also very whiny, selfish, often borderline Too Dumb to Livenonsensical, can be real Ungrateful Bastardsand refuse to listen to common sense.
Probably the biggest example among them is Marcia Langman, an uptight Christian Fundamentalist Moral Guardian who actively hinders the parks department for the most minor of issues. The later seasons are mostly considered to be still funny and solid on the whole, though not as good as seasons due to having weaker overarching stories, recycling storylines and gags, and exaggerating some of the characters' traits over time.
Season 6 is generally considered the worst offender, particularly because of Leslie suffering from bad bouts of Aesop Amnesia and, to a lesser extent, Jerry's Butt-Monkey status, which had its critics to begin with, feeling like it was being overused and increasingly mean-spirited for several viewers even Chris Pratt felt that the treatment of Jerry was getting a bit over the top and should've been toned down.
The epic aerial shot of the Harvest Festival in season 3 is marred by some obvious CGI choices, including one quarter of the park being a photo shot in perspective, meaning that the buildings stretch as the shot rotates. Ron, especially after the Time Skip in season 7.
Meet N Greet
A consistent means of ridiculing political viewpoints throughout the whole run of the show. Some of them are recurring characters. The show rarely delves into the moral ambiguity or multiple conflicting viewpoints in the political issues it discusses, such as soda taxes, health mandates, government budgets, the role of government, men's rights, censorship, et cetera. However, once the show hits its stride she becomes a much more realistic and rounded character, and still unabashedly feminist.
It's also explicitly shown that she's seen as this in-universe, with other feminist characters finding it extremely grating. Strawman Has a Point: In the "Soda Tax" episode, if the Paunch Burger executives weren't so outlandishly double-speaking, they'd probably come off sympathetic.
They quite reasonably point out that they're merely selling what the Pawnee market wants to buy, even if it's unhealthy. Seasons earlier, Ron agrees that being allowed to stuff your face with unhealthy crap and die in your 40s if you really want to do so is a facet of American freedom.

In "Bailout", Leslie saves a failing video store a video store, remember those? Ron objects to this, saying that the government shouldn't be spending taxpayer money to prop up a failing business, especially one that is failing because a most people just stream movies online now, and b the owner refused to stock anything other than obscure art house films. After the motion is passed, she is promptly buried in other Pawnee businesses and citizens who also want government investment, which is portrayed as ridiculous and simple-minded of them The Committee to Recall Leslie Knope is treated like a bunch of bitter citizens munching sour grapes because they dislike Leslie personally, but not only was her soda tax highly unpopular, it would have benefited the government first and foremost, as they would be the ones collecting the tax revenue at the expense of restaurant owners.
Additionally, Leslie exercises far more authority than one would expect a city to entrust to a junior city councilor, glibly shuts down every complaint about her policies at the public forum and insists citizens are better off despite their beliefs otherwise, and calls the entire town "pee-pee heads" on international TV. At a ceremony honoring women for their public service, no less. Ron points this trope out in "Gryzzlbox". While he highly values privacy, he defends Gryzzl collecting information on its customers by pointing out its customers voluntarily entrust its services with their personal information.

He only comes around when Gryzzl collects information on his son, who doesn't own a Gryzzl device thus evoking an entirely separate controversy from the subject of the episode. A not uncommon complaint about the final few seasons is that there is so much emphasis on Heartwarming Moments between the main cast that there is very little in the way of meaningful conflict, making episodes come across as more boring and toothless than in previous seasons.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The premise of "Partridge" is about Ben going back to his hometown to confront personal demons which have haunted him for much of his life and his time on the series. However, he spends most of the actual episode either in the hospital or heavily drugged while Leslie confronts the angry crowd in his place, and at the end of the episode he decides after a brief chat with Leslie that the whole thing just doesn't matter anymore.
We don't get to see much of what life is like for Leslie and Ben as parents, or what it's like juggling the responsibilities of their jobs with raising three children. The triplets, only one of which is named onscreen, only appear as cameos in a few scenes without any dialogue. April's decision to go to veterinary school in seasons 5 and 6.
After a few episodes it's dropped and never brought up again. Likely because it would mean having to remove April from the main castespecially considering Ann and Chris's departure, but it's not followed through in the ending either, since she decides to get a job as a career consultant.
However, it ends up being Tom, who's already had a lot of Butt-Monkey moments throughout the series. Ben's decision to turn down a job at the accounting firm to take a job as City Manager.
The accounting firm had just been established as a very positive work environment, and the work itself involved the exact sort of financial puzzles Ben loved to solve. Some viewers would have liked to spend a season getting to know his new coworkers, and felt that passing it up to accept a job susceptible to impeachment was a mistake.
Tom is always very Easily Forgiven for his blatantly selfish and unethical actions. For one thing, he tried to blackmail his ex-wife Wendy into getting back together with him by suing her for alimony. In "Meet and Greet" he turned a campaign event for Leslie into a flamboyant advertising party for Entertainmentalmost jeopardizing her reputation with many important business owners in Pawnee, and only restored part of the damage at the last minute.
And, in "Jerry's Retirement", he becomes the new "Jerry" of the department and is clearly miserable about it, but given how mercilessly he mocked Jerry throughout the series, it's simply impossible to ignore the hypocrisy of what he is saying.
The two reconcile after Tom shows Leslie a video biography of her life that he originally planned to present, and later makes up for ruining the meet and greet by begging and bribing Kernston to give Leslie another meeting. As the Halloween party ends, April avenges Jerry by stealing Chris' keys and throwing them in the trash. Hey Ron, good to see ya! Weren't you a pirate last year? This is my Halloween costume. I talk about myself all the time, everyone loves me for it.
I really am amazing.

Look, I don't like to throw around the word "butthead" often. If you call everyone a butthead, it kind of loses its impact. But I can say without hesitation that Tom is being a real dick. No home is complete without a proper toolbox. Here's April and Andy's: A hammer, a half eaten pretzel, a baseball card, some cartridge that says "Sonic" and "Hedgehog," a scissor half, a flashlight filled with jellybeans. I have one sister.
We steal each other's stuff, hack each other's Twitter accounts, set each other's clothes on fire There are no rules. See, you're angry with me, and you're not talking about it, and I'm gonna beat you up until you do, because I'm mature.
I grew up with five brothers, and we fought. Using the Dwyer method, which was yelling, wrestling, crying, followed by lots of hugs.
