Silicon Valley


#1

Worth watching ? Saw the first ep and didnt find it funny, but a few pals rave over it. Is it worth persisting with ? Resorted to watching a Third Rock from the Sun last night so need to pack that in


#2

Definitely! It goes from strength to strength with each season. Do you like Mike Judge’s other output?


#3

I love Beavis and Butthead but didnt really enjoy Office Space or the other one he did witb Luke Wilson (Idiocracy?)


#5

I think it’s great, though can be maddening at times watching the lead character screw things up for himself. Never realised that Gilfoyle was in Freaks and Geeks until I finally watched that recently.

#7

It’s more in the vein of the latter two so maybe it isn’t for you…


#8

Oh god this just made me think of the scene with the horse


#9

Generally find T.J Miller’s shtick quite irritating but it really works in this. I love the way he pronounces Aviato.

Thomas Middleditch a really flat and unlikeable lead.


#10

I’ll try a few more eps! Seems to be quite liked so would be a bit daft to dismiss it right away


#11

Martin Starr and Kumail Nanjiani along with Zach Woods (The man really FUCKS)) usually get all the best lines so it usually counters against Miller and Middleditch’s (sometimes Marmite) performances…

I do wish they would give some more prominent story lines to the (few) female characters…


#12

I can’t remember too much about the first series but I feel like it took a few episodes to get into gear. The second and third series’ were excellent from start to finish though.


#13

I get what you mean about Middleditch though I think he’s great and his Comedy Bang Bang guest spots (particularly Kid Detectives) cemented that for me.

First episode of the new season was a good one.


#14

TJ Miller is boss. Love Silicon Valley.


#15

Definitely going to give this a watch, first time hearing about it… love everything else Mike Judge has done.


#16

The latest episode was hilarious, especially Gilfoyle’s glee over Dinesh inevitably fucking up big time


#17

it’s great
zach woods is the best


#18

Poor guy seems to suffer in the films I’ve seen him in too.


#19

Quite a strong start to the new season! Loved Jack Barker’s long descent to his new office and Russ’ school yard F-bombs :smile:

Also I very much want Gilfoyle’s Black Flag / Black Coffee mug that he was drinking from in the first episode!

Love Jared

‘I think you might be the first Pakistani man killed by a drone inside the United States’

That line had me laughing so much I felt a bit guilty afterwards
