Parks and Recreation: Season One 

Created by Greg Daniels and Michael Schur (Universal Studios)

The better a show's deleted scenes, the better the show itself. In one chopped scene from Parks and Recreation: Season One, an irate town hall-meeting eccentric (Loudon Wainwright III) declares: "And then there was that 'fire.' That's what killed my snake!...Now, I have a few things I want to say about Laura Linney..." (Success!) Yes, P&R, which pokes fun at slow-as-molasses local politics, hasn't lived up to its potential (the show stars Amy Poehler and was created by two of the main guys behind the American Office). But its season finale was decent---and hey, The Office's first season was pretty patchy, too.
