A tv show review written by: Lee Sonogan
Season 1- 5 – 28min(2014-) Comedy
“People don’t wanna follow an idea, they wanna follow a leader. Look at the last guy to create a new Internet. Al Gore. His ideas were excellent, but he talked like a narcoleptic plantation owner, so he lost the presidency to a fake cowboy and now he makes apocalypse porn.” – Jared, Silicon Valley
The technology and entrepreneurship comedy you have been looking for. I have recently found out that season 6 has been delayed until 2020. This has made me remember how smart and well researched Silicon Valley is. The satirical humour is savage while creating interesting stories. This tv show explains more technical elements to the story with a novice understanding.
Silicon Valley is not what you would think computer programmers would be like. To get an understanding of the tv series humour you may want to check out the creator Mike Judge’s other work. Philosophical in a lot of its dialogue it appeals to you at a personal level.
Overall each interaction pushes the laughs as each character’s chemistry develops the plot. Clearly explaining the difficulties that the fictional startup company “Piped Piper” and characters go through. If it is your kind of thing stereotypes are used at the perfect level. A unique comedy so well-balanced I recommend it to people who think it is not their kind of show.
“I’ve heard quite a few exciting pitches over the last week, but I’ll be forced to forgo those opportunities because of your mediocrity. You see, Richard, when I invited you into my incubator, I promised to get you ready for the outside world. But I failed to do that. I wouldn’t trust you out there in the real world as far as I could throw you. And to be honest, I could probably throw you all the way across the front yard.” – Erlich Bachman, Silicon Valley
