Silicon Valley’s fourth episode, “Fiduciary Duties,” ends with Richard and Erlich as they leave Peter Gregory’s office, where they spy an old photo of Gregory with Pied Piper rival, Hooli CEO Gavin Belson.

Every comedy fan worth his or her salt knows Martin Starr. The guy’s been popping up in some of the best comedies going for over a decade now, from Freaks and Geeks to Knocked Up, Party Down to Adventureland. Starr’s latest series, NTSF:SD:SUV, sees his hot streak continue. The 15-minute Adult Swim comedy returns for a second season this Thursday night, August 9th, at 12:15am (it’s technically Friday morning), following the season premiere of Childrens Hospital. I’ve seen a couple new NTSF episodes early because I’m a “journalist,” and I can assure you that Season 2 is just as funny and zany as Season 1, if not even better.
