News & Interviews for Silicon Valley: Season 1
His [Mike Judge] latest comedy series, zeroes in on the land of killer apps, broken dreams and social misfits. It's a beauty in addition to being a loosely related descendant of Office Space.
Silicon Valley is Judge's first live-action series after his animated small-screen hits Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill, and that it's so funny is both gratifying and a relief.
By the end of the second episode, the personalities take off, the humor sharpens and there's no need to reboot.
HBO's Silicon Valley is the rare show that might make you say, "Wow. Wouldn't want to be a tech billionaire right now."
There are signs that Silicon Valley will grow into something a bit more broad-based. [There] are inspired moments that show Silicon Valley has the potential [to] be much more than The Big Bang Theory with more tech jargon and cruder sex jokes.
Audience Reviews for Silicon Valley: Season 1
"Kid Rock is the poorest person here." I've only seen one so far, but it was scathingly funny. And uncomfortably too close to home. With heart.
Started off weak, but quickly became compelling as the characters and plot twists developed over the course of the season. Personal aside: there's far too much truth in much of the negativity the show ascribes to Silicon Valley.
Mike Judge was the creator of this show's subtle humour, it satirises the computer industry without being too grossly offensive.
