‘Silicon Valley’: Erlich’s Bizarre Departure Reveals the Tragedy Behind the Comedy

27 June 2017 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Season 4 of “Silicon Valley,” which ended Sunday night, plays more like a tragedy than any of the show’s adventures so far. After three seasons of trying to combat magnate Gavin Belson (Matt Ross), the vicious head of the show’s Google-like Hooli, protagonist Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) spends most of Season 4 in a free fall of his own principles. If “Silicon Valley” started as a story where Richard thought he was going to defeat Gavin, it paused Sunday night as a story observing that Richard is becoming Gavin, one agonizing moral compromise at a time.

Meanwhile, one of the show’s most beloved characters, the big-haired and blustering Erlich Bachmann (T.J. Miller), was written off the show with an ending that is neither happy nor conclusive: He’s sentenced to a five-year opium addiction in Tibet, with a careless shrug, at the end of a season where he kept trying and failing to find his place »

‘Silicon Valley’ Review: ‘Hooli-Con’ Is Another Complicated Step Toward Mutually Assured Implosion

18 June 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After the last few weeks, when the Pied Piper team spent most of each episode riding high, only to be brought down by the show’s patented combination of hubris and impossible luck, this week’s episode of “Silicon Valley” effectively flipped the script, leaving the team in better circumstances than when they started. It’s an odd change for Season 4, which has put its characters through repeated tests of commitment and resilience to test their mettle. “Hooli-con” showed a group of people on both sides of this tech-based feud who are having less and less to show for their efforts.

Mia, Chekov’s lovesick hacker, worked her way into the fold again, unwittingly helping the team with their newly hatched scheme to siphon off new users from Hooli-con attendees. Even though Dinesh was able to wrestle some technical assistance from her, something about their interaction points to idea that »

‘Silicon Valley’ Review: ‘The Keenan Vortex’ Shows Why These Guys Might Never Really Be Happy

11 June 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Well, it almost happened. For a minute, the Pied Piper crew finally seemed to be happy. Champagne was flowing, spirits were high and it looked like this group finally had the financial and creative freedom to fulfill the dreams that their occasionally fearful leader has had all season.

And then, as it always seems to in the world of “Silicon Valley,” the fluffy clouds lifted. It’s another weekly example of how the show continues to dangle a happy future in front of its characters, only to pull it away and show them that the way they wanted to find happiness was an illusion all along (or a virtual reality, if you will).

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ and ‘Genius’ Debut Plus More TV You Must See This Week

23 April 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Elisabeth Moss in ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

Two exciting new limited series are making rather unconventional debuts this week, with The Handmaid’s Tale premiering on Hulu, which hasn’t had such a big event program like this before, and Genius giving National Geographic its first scripted show. We’re also saying goodbye to Bates Motel, welcome back to Silicon Valley, and hello in a new form to Dear White People. Plus there are a couple new places to have a laugh at the president.

To help you keep track of the most important programs over the next seven days, here’s our guide to everything worth watching, whether it’s on broadcast, cable, or streaming for April 23–29:

Silicon Valley Season 4 Review

20 April 2017 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Given the constantly evolving and paradigm shifting nature of the titular Californian hotspot, HBO’s furiously funny comedy series Silicon Valley has a nearly endless stream of real-life absurdity to parody each season. From a dire life-or-death live stream (with crystal-clear video!) to the nuts and bolts of running and operating a start-up company, the show constantly feels topical, resonant, and meaningful without an ounce of trying-too-hard bogging it down.

Creator Mike Judge has built a world that teeters slightly on the edge of unreality, but he never goes full-force into that abyss. The setting is tangible, the characters are believable (and crushingly relatable), and the always-an-underdog plot arcs are feverishly entertaining. Season 4 of Silicon Valley keeps that deft mix of humor, heart, and all-hell-breaking-loose potent and strong in the first few episodes sent for review, proving that – like Pied Piper – the show »

‘Silicon Valley’ Review: Season 4 Draws the Line Between Crazy and Brilliant as Mike Judge Dares to Dream

20 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When it comes to chasing your dreams, there’s a fine line between crazy and courageous, and the fast-moving, boom or bust world of Silicon Valley — satirized in HBO’s award-winning comedy of the same name — blurs the line into obscurity. Over three seasons, Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) and his friends have seen more extreme ups and downs while trying to monetize their landmark algorithm than most people experience in their lifetime. Entering Season 4, they’ve got a shot at evening things out and making good, stable money.

But is that enough? Is stability what these men, and Richard Hendricks, in particular, are really chasing? Would they be happy if they were millionaires, coasting through life, free from the pressures and thrills of the chase? That each character would likely answer differently gives you an idea of where “Silicon Valley” is headed in Season 4, but simply by posing the question, »
