Yes, Silicon Valley continues to find ways to deliver fun surprises, even as it operates on familiar turf.

"Server Error" still had all the hallmarks of a quintessential "Silicon Valley" season finale. Leaving no plot threads unspooled, it's also a solid example of how the show is one of the most intricately plotted comedy on TV.

Silicon Valley has returned for season four with a few surgical alterations, and, two episodes in, they're working beautifully.

There are plenty of other side-plots to revel in from the three episodes provided to critics.

There's a sense that we've traveled down this road paved with silicon once or twice before, but the ride is still smart, engaging and highly informative.

Judge seeks a fresh formula for success through Richard's own quest, Silicon Valley becomes a bit more thoughtful and a bit more ambitious itself.

While HBO's Silicon Valley is an enjoyable show, make sure your eyes are open to its erasure of already-marginalized communities within the tech industry.

Aug 4, 2019 | Rating: D | Full Review…

The series continues to mix sight gags, situational comedy, and strong writing to be the best version of itself.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

"Silicon Valley" remains laugh-out-loud funny and crude as hell...but also smart about showing what kind of earth these geeks want to inherit.

May 16, 2018 | Full Review…

By making Richard the stubborn stick-in-the-mud and aligning the rest of the house against him -- it's the idealist versus the impatient money-grubbers -- Valley sets up a drama in this comedy that is surprisingly compelling.

    Silicon Valley: Season 4 is a detour that nobody want to see
  • Jul 04, 2017

  • Jul 02, 2017
    Funniest show on television-for a 4th season
  • Jun 26, 2017
    Probably the best season of Silicon Valley since the debut, as it downplays the less-comprehensible tech jargon in favor of the deadpan/awkward humor that has made Mike Judge such a singular voice in American comedy. Still, this season doesn't sacrifice its sense of authenticity towards the data-world either, with plenty of plot-points modeled after reality, and unwavering attention to accuracy. With only two seasons left after this one, here's hoping that Silicon Valley will only continue to represent its theme of progress and change (even in the face of it losing at least one of its best cast-members).

    Silicon Valley [Season 4], tells the story of evolution of the Northern California high-tech mecca. Overall, the fourth season of Silicon Valley was exciting. The show keeps getting better and better every season. The show just knows exactly what to do, so what can you say? The show is just absolutely brilliant and wonderful, there's nothing bad you can say about it... at all.

    This season went from being Amazing to just a re-hash of lil success but ALOT of failure to put them back at square 1... If you want a show that is funny, and talks about Silicon Valley reality... This isn't it. If you want to watch Seinfeld at Silicon Valley with a terrible main actor... this is it... the first season was phenomenal... but alot of viewers are now getting sick of this terrible formula of a show Season X .... Ep 1-3 failure, but then success. 4-6 success but then failure... 8-9 success but mega failure.... 10 f*cken failure... lil success... then you f*cked up son.... If you are new... stick to Season 1. If you finish season 1. Stop. That's all you need to see
