... I am obsessed with Silicon Valley culture. I'm in my 50s and grew up on black & white TVs. When the 26 lb 'portable' Kaypro computer came out with its MS-DOS CP/M combination OS, well, I'd never loved an inanimate object so much, nor have I since. Unfortunately, being a tech crazy doesn't save you from being tech-impaired. I don't know why I hang around in forums I only half understand or spend money on toys I tweak till they're bricked (I always go that one tweak too far). I'm not an idiot -- I have my own areas of expertise. But like minds don't interest me. Yours do. That said, some of you are really over-thinking this show. You've heard the expression 'inside baseball," when a certain breed of fan analyzes the game to the point where it's not fun anymore (particularly to those around them?) Even I know that you can't destroy data at the server level by putting your Tequila bottle down on the delete key. So what? You don't think there were mobsters who took issue with Tony Sopranos? This isn't a documentary. This is character-driven entertainment and on those terms, there isn't a false move. It's a dream ensemble. I don't know when or if I have ever seen actors complement each other to the degree they do here and I'll bet I've seen more filmed, televised and live drama than anyone who reads this (granted, it's a stale thread so no one will read it) Were the show dreadful in every other respect, it deserves love just for Thomas Middleditch (Richard Hendricks), who was particularly fine in this episode. His plastic face reminds me of Gene Wilder's, except with Middleitch all you register is the emotion, not the performance: shock, regret, guilt, defeat -- all there and gone, in the split instant between his mis-impression that Russ gave him the orange sports car and his realization that no, Russ hadn't, Russ had suckered him again. It's a cliché, but the performers here really do inhabit their characters completely, redeeming whatever stereotypical liberties were taken by the show's creators. They get the flavor right, even if they substituted some ingredients. And of course, it's easier to define what's wrong on a show (and in life) than to fix it. Try rewriting the episode, substituting the tequila-on-the-keyboard plot-point with a data-destroying scenario that could really happen. Can you cram it into a 30-minute episode without hijacking the plot and do it in such a way that I don't have to Google to get it? The show may be set in Silicon Valley but it's made (metaphorically) in Hollywood -- if the producer doesn't know what you're talking about, you can't say 'Google is your friend.' (if anybody still says that to anyone --like I said, I'm old). PS: This particular episode was very funny. I loved the Duane SWOT Board -- made me laugh out loud.


Silicon Valley

Another cultural phenomena for the nerds, initiated after a massive success of The Big Bang Theory; who too follows up the similar path, comes this eerie, not-your-usual-sitcom and is definitely not for everyone, where content is considered prior to the punch line of the joke which is why it has the potential to withhold its existence and maintain its quality for longer period. Silicon Valley is a finely detailed insight on the technical world and is infomercial to the outer world where the writer keeps its smart in here and doesn't spend its time wasting on explaining the actions or events (even the references mentioned) occurring in here which makes the audience engaged throughout the course of it in order to not get derailed. As mentioned earlier, it is not a "hilarious" show and fortunately nor does it aspire to be which eliminates the ridiculous efforts of it that usually sitcom falls into. One of the major dilemma in here would be the strength of the star cast, that isn't convincing on performance level which is non-negotiable. The supporting cast like Kumail Nanjiani and Martin Starr is what helps draw out the most of the laughs from the series and is also an example of perfect bonding as the relation is quite similar to a sibling where both the parties is trying to prove their superiority.

Season 02

The second season is about the exposure of the technical guys to the outer business world and strategies that they are unaware of and somehow has to tackle it all through their own perspective, agenda and tactics which creates these chain of events that are both hilarious and troublesome to encounter keeping the audience on the edge of the seat.

White Hat/Black Hat

It is somewhat goofy yet smart in its own terms. TJ Miller has an interesting story to tell and Thomas had some bold moves to take that ups the ante a bit, which all binds perfectly and offers a perfected even though expected satisfying concept that is up beating.
