TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: A visual collage of dot com history, Valley of Boom proves to be just as sprawling and ramshackle as the docuseries' subject.

Critic Reviews for Valley of the Boom Miniseries

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (6)

The talking-head interviews with real Silicon Valley veterans (and modern-day experts) aren't effectively placed next to the acted-out narrative with Whitford, Morris, et al. Instead of complementing one another, they seem superfluous.

Top Critic

A nutty sprawl that's often amusing, occasionally interesting, sporadically informative and almost completely off the rails. A hoot.

Top Critic

Innovative internet docudrama entertains and illuminates.

It is a sprawling mess saved only by sporadic moments of humor and insight and the fact that this was a genuinely fascinating period for technology and society as a whole.

Valley of the Boom is creative, informative, and pretty damned funny.

But, save for a few artful storytelling techniques and one mad conman, Valley of the Boom struggles to mine that craziness for excitement.

The format of this series really makes it stand out - using cutaway interviews with some of the actual people involved in the events to add context to the drama unfolding in the story... It's really the perfect way to tell the story.

The result is a solid mashup of documentary and fictional storytelling that illustrates the degree to which Nat Geo's formula can be applied to just about anything.

Carnahan breaks all sorts of conventions and plays to the comedy strengths of his cast.

Jan 14, 2019 | Full Review…

[A] docudrama that's as sober and informative as it is snarky and entertaining.
