I kind of wished they wouldn't have actually filmed both Park and Rec endings, it will make whichever actually airs seem less significant or real, at least in my mind. It's crazy, but I'll still always know there is definite footage of the opposite happening.

I wish they'd just make a new Jurassic Park movie instead of converting it to 3D :/
