Silicon Valley: Season 1
Plot: A group tries to get a start up going in Silicon Valley.
Review: There is a kind of ruthlessness that comes with these new companies out of silicon valley. If you look back at any big website company, there is usually a story about someone screwing someone over or someone claiming they created it out there. It’s maybe because all the ideas are just out there and “like myspace but for college” it’s a great idea with the execution. So to say it was ready to be lampooned is an understatement.
And Silicon Valley is there to pick up the slack. The best thing about it is how it gets computer programmers so well. I’ve known a lot in my programmers in my life and a lot of them are like this. The show works because it creates different personalities instead of “big banging” nerds. So it’s not just a carbon copy of the same nerdy stereotype. It’s harder to critique comedy so I didn’t give this a good review but..
All you really have to know is that it’s funny, it’s smart and it works.
