    Default Silicon Valley

    In the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. A comedy partially inspired by Mike Judge's own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late 1980s.
    First episode aired last night. I actually quite enjoyed it. It's only half an hour long so worth a punt.

    Caught up on this, watched the first 2 episodes last night.
    It is only an 8 episode series so will keep it up. I enjoyed it, but I can imagine it will be lost on a lot of people!

    Going to grab this and give it a go. Like many of these things you have to stick with it for a few episodes to get to know the personality of the characters before some of what they do and say are seen as funny. (">
