Tv Season Info

When the Pied Piper team find out about Peter Gregory's death, they start to doubt the viability of Raviga as an investor and start to pitch their business to other venture capitalists. However, Laurie Bream (Suzanne Cryer), Raviga's new manager, and Monica (Amanda Crew), Peter's former assistant, keep the company's promise and make a really good offer that Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) accepts. Bad news quickly follow: Hooli's Belson (Matt Ross) decides to sue Pied Piper for intellectual property theft, causing Raviga to drop the recently acquired team and the other venture capitalists to lose interest in them. When all hope seems lost, eccentric billionaire Russ Hanneman (Chris Diamantopolous) makes his entrance and offers to fund Hendrick's operations. The second season of the comedy series focuses on lawsuits, competition, business decisions and corporate espionage.

Critic Reviews for Silicon Valley Season 2

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (15)

The surprise of the show's second season, which has been stronger than its first, has increasingly been that in addition to being reliably funny, it somehow feels familiar as a workplace show, despite being so much a creature of its bro-intensive world.

Jun 12, 2015 | Full Review…

Silicon Valley is an enormously difficult show to dislike.

Apr 20, 2015 | Full Review…

There's comedy gold in the lack of people skills among the geeks who are unprepared for the kind of success the tech boom can generate.

Apr 20, 2015 | Full Review…

The cast of Silicon Valley was great last season, but they're much more confident this season.

Apr 11, 2015 | Full Review…

The energy, excitement, and ultimately the incredible humor the show has makes it a positively kinetic viewing experience.

May 31, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

In its relentless realism, it often offered brilliant and biting commentary...just as often, the show veered toward the flat and the unfunny, and Erlich and Richard, the two guys with the most screen time, seemed calculated to annoy viewers.



May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Silicon Valley does not run away from clichés, such as the inability to social relations or the difficulty of holding the gaze when the interlocutor of one of his male characters is a woman. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 15, 2018 | Full Review…

The second season of Silicon Valley expanded the cast and gave the Pied Piper gang one hell of a rollercoaster ride.

May 31, 2018 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

"Sand Hill Shuffle" is a relatively uneventful episode but two very big events set the stage for the rest of the season.

Apr 13, 2015 | Full Review…

Just as he did with Idiocracy, Judge is offering up a pretty dire look at the future, to which many of us seem almost blind. He's doing it through the lens of satire.

Apr 13, 2015 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

What works, bottom line, is the comic interplay between our wafer-thin, goggle-eyed hero, Thomas Middleditch's Richard, and his colleague-roomies.

Apr 11, 2015 | Full Review…

Silicon Valley may have lost some momentum along with one of its stars, but Season 2 makes for enjoyable watching while the show works out the new kinks.

    Didnt think second season would hold up. I was wrong
  • Oct 16, 2018
    Silicon Valley manages to carry on with the same excellent momentum that made season 1 so great despite the loss of Christopher Evan Welch.

    Silicon Valley [Season 2], tells the story when the Pied Piper team find out about Peter Gregory's death, they start to doubt the viability of Raviga as an investor and start to pitch their business to other venture capitalists. However, Laurie Bream, Raviga's new manager, and Monica, Peter's former assistant, keep the company's promise and make a really good offer that Hendricks accepts.

When all hope seems lost, eccentric billionaire Russ Hanneman makes his entrance and offers to fund Hendrick's operations. The second season of the comedy series focuses on lawsuits, competition, business decisions and corporate espionage. Overall, the second season of Silicon Valley is even better than season one. It's an ambitious show that you cannot dislike. Silicon Valley feels fresh every episode you watch. The show rallies up its comedy from the first season, and adds on even better than the first season of Silicon Valley. Too, it's even better to see that the ensemble is even better in season two than season one, due to the characters opening up, and transitioning even more.

    SO TREMENDOUSLY GOOD
  • May 16, 2016
    Loved everything about this series :)
  • Jan 16, 2016
    'Silicon Valley' continues to impress with its funny & awkward characters -- even though they might have lost some of the strong, always laughable moments. But the show still manages to present these diverse characters in a stunning way, even though they still might be a bit too stereotypical -- but the diversity, different gender-roles, non-stop entertainment of the plot & the (finally) great character development only adds more positivity to this almost flawless (immature) tv-show. Keep it coming, love it! Overall personal rating for each episode: 80.9/100. Personal rating: 80/100 Critical rating: 95/100

    This is not the real silicon valley. I live here and it isn't like this. I can't stand how they swear left and right. They don't do that in SV!!!! You don't need to add swearing to make a show good.

    The stellar second season lives up to the first in every way.
