85. Party Down (Starz)
Rob Thomas—the man behind Veronica Mars, not the Matchbox 20 guy—goes full comedy on this half-hour shot of brilliance about a party catering company staffed by wannabe actors.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
The homie Fred Savage (a.k.a. Kevin Arnold from The Wonder Years) directed several episodes of this (as well as of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia).
