Hooli's attempt to promote their new compression software featuring a live sporting event, ends up an embarrassment to Gavin, yet inspires Richard to attempt a similar venture. Erlich's old college roommate, whom has since developed a lucrative energy drink company, is contacted in order to provide a platform for Pied Piper's software to gain publicity. Gilfoyle and Dinesh face a moral dilemma while debating their ideas on Jarrod's new decision making apparatus. An old meeting comes back to haunt Pied Piper, exposing their less than sceptical views of their competitors. Written by Peter Iannazzo

Silicon Valley

Another cultural phenomena for the nerds, initiated after a massive success of The Big Bang Theory; who too follows up the similar path, comes this eerie, not-your-usual-sitcom and is definitely not for everyone, where content is considered prior to the punch line of the joke which is why it has the potential to withhold its existence and maintain its quality for longer period. Silicon Valley is a finely detailed insight on the technical world and is infomercial to the outer world where the writer keeps its smart in here and doesn't spend its time wasting on explaining the actions or events (even the references mentioned) occurring in here which makes the audience engaged throughout the course of it in order to not get derailed. As mentioned earlier, it is not a "hilarious" show and fortunately nor does it aspire to be which eliminates the ridiculous efforts of it that usually sitcom falls into. One of the major dilemma in here would be the strength of the star cast, that isn't convincing on performance level which is non-negotiable. The supporting cast like Kumail Nanjiani and Martin Starr is what helps draw out the most of the laughs from the series and is also an example of perfect bonding as the relation is quite similar to a sibling where both the parties is trying to prove their superiority.

Season 02

The second season is about the exposure of the technical guys to the outer business world and strategies that they are unaware of and somehow has to tackle it all through their own perspective, agenda and tactics which creates these chain of events that are both hilarious and troublesome to encounter keeping the audience on the edge of the seat.


It has a mere idea or concept and is a bit fuzzy about its objective and the path that is written with sloppy structure and humor that it relies upon let along be original or even entertaining and on other hand Kumail and Martin has an intriguing and hilarious track.
