Critic's Notebook: Of Course 'Silicon Valley' Can Survive Without T.J. Miller

7 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[This contains spoilers for the fourth season of HBO's Silicon Valley.]

The idea that Silicon Valley will somehow be unable to survive the departure of co-star T.J. Miller is weird.

Or, put a different way, if Silicon Valley proves to be unable to survive the departure of T.J. Miller, it's because of the show's writers and not the absence of T.J. Miller.

Sunday night's season finale ended with Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) paying off the proprietor of an opium den to allow Miller's Erlich Bachman to remain in a drug-fueled haze for five years.

In a long, often hilarious and »

How ‘Silicon Valley’ Swapped Its Hero and Its Villain And Saved the Show’s Future

14 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “Silicon Valley” Season 4 finale, Episode 10, “Server Error.”]

After a season of departures, setbacks and the central team of aspiring tech moguls ending up way farther away from their goals than they had expected, Season 4 of “Silicon Valley” could really only have ended one way. In a mirror of a Season 2 cliffhanger, newly shaven Gavin Belson sat across from Richard Hendricks, the former offering a sweetheart acquisition deal to the person he gifted a industry-changing patent to just a few weeks before.

Rather than accept the offer from the newly reinstated Hooli chairman, Richard declined, even after being reminded that the only reason his company is still viable is by a rare bit of Gavin Belson altruism. Richard began the series as a lovable pushover, an unlikely CEO in the Silicon Valley world, where tech bros play pickup basketball games on the same court as the NBA champions. But whether it was a gradually built up thicker skin »

T.J. Miller Says Leaving 'Silicon Valley' "Felt Like a Breakup"

23 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Sunday's season finale of Silicon Valley marked the end of the road for Erlich Bachman.

The HBO comedy wrote out T.J. Miller's fan-favorite character in a rather unexpected and unceremonious fashion. After going to China to meet up with Gavin Belson (Matt Ross), the pair stop at an opium den in Tibet, where Erlich gets so high that he can barely function. So the ousted Hooli CEO pays the owner of the drug den a wad of cash to keep Erlich there for five years.

And with that, Silicon Valley said goodbye to one of its most beloved characters. HBO first confirmed in »

‘Silicon Valley’ Star Tj Miller Explains Why He Exits the Show on a Cliffhanger

19 June 2017 4:36 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

(Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday’s episode of “Silicon Valley”) “Silicon Valley” fans might not exactly get the closure they’re looking for when T.J. Miller’s final episode airs this Sunday. Miller — whose HBO special, “Meticulously Ridiculous,” debuted on Saturday — told TheWrap that the exit of his character, Erlich Bachman, stems from the brash entrepreneur’s flight to Tibet to visit Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) during the most recent episode. “Absolutely,” Miller said about the trip leading to Erlich’s departure. “And what I’ve been telling people is — they’re like, ‘Does Erlich die?’ Uh, no, but he goes to a better place. »

'Power to the People' Video Examines the Books in 'Captain Fantastic'

31 May 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of my favorite films of 2016 was Matt Ross' Captain Fantastic, starring Viggo Mortensen. It's the kind of film I can put on any day and it makes me happy, I adore it, and I was so happy to see Viggo get an Oscar nomination for his performance. Not only is a great film, but it has so much to teach us about raising kids, keeping an open mind, learning more about the way we interact in this world, and fighting against a capitalistic society. Fellow cinephile H Nelson Tracey, who writes for the site Cinemacy, has created a video essay breaking down and examining all of the books shown and literature referenced in the film. There's quite a few books referenced in this film, and if you're looking for some extra summer reading, this is a very good place to start. As I'm a very big fan of this film, »

‘Silicon Valley’ Fact Check: Are ‘Blood Boys’ a Thing?

22 May 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Horse-mating scenes aside, “Silicon Valley” has now really gone beyond the pale. In Sunday’s episode, tech “maverick” and Hooli founder Gavin Belson (Matt Ross) made use of a “blood boy” — receiving a blood transfusion from a young man in an effort to life-hack his way to the fountain of youth. As it turns out, the practice depicted in Season 4’s Episode 5 isn’t out of reach in real life. In the episode, aptly titled “The Blood Boy,” Gavin listens to a presentation from Richard while his “transfusion associate” Bryce (Graham Rogers) sits by his side, supplying him with his young blood. »

Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.

However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald »

If action figures and posters aren’t your kind of movie memorabilia, perhaps this will be more to your liking: the bus from “Captain Fantastic,” which is for sale on Craigslist. Viggo Mortensen isn’t included in the transaction, unfortunately, but for the low, low price of just $6,000 you can get the vehicle being alluringly advertised as “1993 Bluebird bus, Built for the movie ‘Captain Fantastic.’ Still has set dressing props in it.”
