20. 'Silicon Valley' (HBO)
The eternal California dream: A group of bros head West to make it big in the software biz, with Hooli as a cleverly detailed caricature of the Google campus in Mountain View. Silicon Valley makes you root for these geeks, along with their charisma-free basket case of a guru, Peter Gregory — played by the late Christopher Evans Welch, who died during filming. The ever-hilarious Martin Starr flashes the same contemptuous glare he had as the "hard sci-fi" guy on Party Down. When one housemate tries to organize everybody's work habits, directing them to think of their "tasks" as "stories," Starr barks, "I've got a story: Why don't you choke on my balls?"
