One episode was enough to verify that it is still as fun as ever. [Full Review in Spanish]

Season Five is perhaps the best season of the show and has moved everything - the characters, Pied Piper, the comedy - forward and ensured that I'm fully onboard for the sixth season whenever it debuts.

Hopefully, Judge can keep this show rolling through the season at the level of the premiere.

Still one of the best on TV, even without the brilliantly coarse TJ Miller.

It has found a comfort zone keeping its fanbase happy, but newcomers can tune in and smile, because depending on what city you live in, you might know these guys.

The writers ensure there's enough happening in every episode to keep us occupied (and laughing), while slowly doling out minor upgrades that'll hopefully have a worthwhile impact.

The fifth season manages to keep in form despite being more of the same. [Full Review in Spanish]

So how does Silicon move forward without Erlich?... Pretty easily, actually.
June 14, 2018
There must be a little bit more room for women around the Pied Piper office, right? Somewhere?... Silicon Valley might be be down one major character in season 5, but it seems absolutely nothing else has changed.
June 14, 2018
Plays it safe in terms of story and jokes, but does a good job of setting up the rest of the season.
June 14, 2018
Well, it's good to know that even with Pied Piper thriving, some things never change.

The series was already reaching the point of diminishing returns last year, and appears to have arrived there now.
May 31, 2018
A little unsure of itself... To viewers wandering if it deserves their continued attention, hang on in there.

What is the show like without TJ Miller's Erlich Bachman? Better than it has been in years, it turns out.
May 31, 2018
Despite the new story lines, Season 5 of Silicon Valley starts off with a been-there-done-that feel to it.
May 31, 2018
The series is still funny this year, and it still features deft storytelling. Unlike a lot of cable sitcoms, Silicon Valley favors cleverly constructed narratives, with sharp twists. It rarely shambles or coasts on attitude...But something's a little off.

Now it's a nastier, more paranoid show - and all the funnier for it. Silicon Valley has become a prescient satire about a world where smart-fridges are listening in on customers' private lives and streaming their data to the cloud.
April 12, 2018
Silicon Valley is tighter and better than ever.
April 6, 2018
The show manages brilliantly to keep the audience onside through a lot corporate and computing detail, but the remaining bandwidth needs to be used for emotional rather than intellectual investment.
March 30, 2018
Season 5 manages to fix this issue by returning to longer arcs over the season and upping the stakes so the formula isn't as transparent.
