'Parks and Recreation'
Returns: This fall for Season 5
What You Can Skip: Season 1
Sure, it's a fun sitcom, but the story arcs will make a lot more sense if you watch them in succession. The show didn't start growing into itself until Season 2, so go ahead and start at "Pawnee Zoo." If you find out that you're a huge Mouse Rat lover, definitely go back for the Season 1 finale.
