Silicon Valley

http://i.imgur.com/MnGaeqa.jpg

In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A comedy partially inspired by Mike Judge's own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late 1980s.

Being a programmer I love seeing a show like this. I also enjoyed Betas (cancelled, though?), but I'm hopeful this will be better since it's a HBO show.

Re: Silicon Valley

Mike Judge? Should be funny!

Re: Silicon Valley

Anybody watching this. Gave this show a two ep try and must say - not bad. Well definitely far from great, but has some light ironic humor. If it takes up a notch it's a keeper if it stays this way it's too much fast food show for me.

Re: Silicon Valley

I absolutely love this! I was so sad when Betas ended (which is pretty similar to this), but HBO managed to make an even funnier version - and it's already renewed for second season.

Re: Silicon Valley

I'm not into it, it's 100% geek, I agree, but after two episodes I didn't care about anything/anyone and wasn't really entertained, yet alone funny.

Re: Silicon Valley

One and a half episode and I was out. Two slow paced for me.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: Silicon Valley

I had high hopes for this show, but it disappointed me greatly sad I don't like any of the characters, not even the main character, and that is sad. And I really hate the junkie house owner, worst piece of s#¤t character ever made.
It's not even funny! I love geeky series and characters, but this was just a snore fest for me.

Tempted to test yet another episode since I do like the idea of the show, maybe it can grow on me.

Re: Silicon Valley

Great episode today. I also love the fact they have done their research for this show, using tools like Jenkins, frameworks like Rails, that they use Scrum.

Re: Silicon Valley

Great episode (1x08) again. The conference and the team scenes were great! A very good season wrap smile

Too bad I learned that Christopher Evan Welch - who played Peter Gregory - died already in December 2013 sad

Let's see how the script adapts for season two.

Re: Silicon Valley

Show is great. The wanking theory was great, haven't laughed this hard at a show in ages. Definitely keeping this on. Though I do agree the first 2-3 episodes were a bit offputting.

Sorry to hear about the rich weird billionaire though. His disappointment sounds were hilarious.

Re: Silicon Valley

Loved the whole season.

Re: Silicon Valley

Marathoned through it, loved it.

don't sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things

Shame? I'm jealous of you, getting to watch them all from fresh!

I marathoned it a few weeks ago, probably my favourite currently running comedy.
