Can You Guess Famous Lines From Office Space From Just a Gif or Freeze-Frame?

17 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

With Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley premiering on HBO to rave reviews, it’s the perfect time to celebrate his past work: Beavis and Butt-Head, King of the Hill, Idiocracy, and the most quotable of them all: 1999’s Office Space. Then why not celebrate with a Quote Quiz? The game works Hangman-style: You type in letters to fill in the quote that goes with the picture, but if you get more than three letters wrong, you lose that question. (If you're stuck, click for a hint on the upper-right-hand corner of each picture.) When you’re all done, make sure to share your score in your latest Tps report. I’m gonna need that by 5 p.m. On your mark, get set, quote! »

Behind the Counter at "Bob's Burgers": 5 Reasons Why This Show Is So Tasty

17 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When there's a "Bob's Burgers" table read, it's an open secret. They aren’t advertised to the industry or the public, but a bright yellow sign ("Bob's Burgers Table Read") at the entrance to Bento Box's Burbank offices is visible from the street.Created by Loren Bouchard, best known for co-creating “Home Movies” on Adult Swim, “Bob’s Burgers”  is equal parts heartfelt and cheeky, a show that tests the limits of an ordinary premise with a cast of exceedingly eccentric characters. However, “Bob’s Burgers” has a secret sauce.  So how do they do it? Here is our unofficial five-step recipe for “Bob’s Burgers,” that we came up with after hanging out at a table read and chatting behind the scenes:Step 1: Bring together producers and writers that have worked together in the past. It doesn’t hurt if the show that they worked on happened to be massively successful. »

Here's an exclusive sneak peek at HBO's 2014 Emmy campaign

12 April 2014 12:41 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In a Gold Derby exclusive, premium network HBO has provided their Emmy Awards campaign for 2014 with category placements. One of the shockers in recent weeks was the news that "True Detective" would be competing as Best Drama Series. It only aired eight episodes earlier this year and will have a completely new cast and storyline next time, so many expected it to follow the anthology path of "American Horror Story" as a miniseries. Stars Matthew McConaughey, reigning Oscar winner for "Dallas Buyers Club," and Woody Harrelson, a past Emmy champ for his supporting work on "Cheers," are competing against each other as leading actors. -Break- It's Emmy war as 'True Detective' battles for Best Drama Series That is the only newcomer on the dramatic side. HBO's hottest new comedy might be "Silicon Valley" from creator Mike Judge ("Office Space," "King of the Hill" »

6 Reasons You Should Be Watching Silicon Valley

9 April 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

I know it’s what we’ve all been waiting for with bated breath: speculating around the water cooler, seeking out every scrap of promotional material we can, and “borrowing” people’s HBO Go passwords. Yes, this past Sunday saw the premiere of the first episode of HBO’s new comedy Silicon Valley, from the people who brought you King of the Hill, Veep and Beavis and Butthead.

With a zeitgeist-y premise – a young developer stumbles across some fancy algorithm that sends two tech companies into a bidding war, amongst the app-crazy La tech scene – and an ensemble cast featuring some of the hottest up-and-coming comedians working today, Silicon Valley is almost preordained to be a hit.

Or at least I hope so, because based on the pilot the show has the potential to be both hilarious and bitingly satirical, with a look into the corporate culture of the »

Silicon Valley: an unmissable geek sitcom

7 April 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Louisa Mellor 7 Apr 2014 - 17:45

Mike Judge's return to workplace comedy, Silicon Valley, is sharply written satire that does more than poke fun at the tech industry...

Farewell the cigar-chomping Hollywood exec and his wheatgrass-juicing starlet, satire’s moved about 300 miles up the Californian coastline. Silicon Valley, with its herds of would-be Zuckerbergs, philanthropic billionaire bosses and trendy campus workplaces, is the new target.

Mike Judge, whose 1999 film Office Space established his antipathy for corporate culture, is back sending up the tech industry’s nauseating self-satisfaction and sticking up for the little guy. This time the little guy is Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch), a low-rung employee at Hooli - Silicon Valley’s caricature of Google - whose side project is discovered to contain a “game-changing” compression algorithm that puts him at the centre of a panic attack-inducing bidding war.

Should Richard take the millions he’s offered by Hooli’s vainglorious CEO, »

Watch: First Full Episode Of HBO’s 'Silicon Valley' Plus Review Of Mike Judge's Tech World Comedy

7 April 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Over the course of his career, Mike Judge has always been a keen observer of the absurd, mundane minutiae of the work world. Of course, "Office Space" is his crowing achievement, pitch perfectly capturing the soul crushing ennui of working 9 to 5. Judge returned to the well with "Extract," something a bit more screwball, less focused and as a result, less satisfying. And while Strickland Propane of "King Of The Hill" was another opportunity to skewer working life, it was more of an added texture to the All American Hank Hill than a particular point for parody. However, "Silicon Valley" returns Judge full throttle to the arena of clock-punching, management and ambition, with the tech world setting providing a fresh twist, but with results decidedly mixed across the first five episodes sent to press. Season premiere "Minimum Viable Product"—now available in full on YouTube for the next three weeks (watch »

Silicon Valley Series Premiere Review: “Minimum Viable Product” (Season 1, Episode 1)

6 April 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mike Judge has been more successful on the small screen than on the big one. Compare the huge success of Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill to the cult status of Office Space and outright obscurity of Idiocracy and Extract and you’ll see what I mean. Sure, he flopped on TV with his last show, The Goode Family, but in light of how enjoyable the first episode of Silicon Valley is, that misstep can be forgotten.

The problem with Judge as a screenwriter for movies is that he seems entirely unable to write a third act. With TV, he doesn’t have to. There isn’t the expectation of making the story fit into a conventional three act movie structure. He is free to focus on his strengths, which are memorable characters and an absolutely brilliant sense of social satire.

Both of those strengths are already present in spades in Silicon Valley, »

Silicon Valley Series Premiere Recap: “Minimum Viable Product”

6 April 2014 7:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mike Judge's (Office Space) new series Silicon Valley is finely-honed satire.  It's technically a comedy, but with so much to lampoon about the tech industry, the series shows restraint by taking its time and building in both visual and conversational jokes.  Comedy pilots can be a series' weakest point, but "Minimum Viable Product" was (probably thanks to Judge's experience and success) a strong start for a show that knows its purpose and the story it wants to tell.  Hit the jump for why you don't even know the half of it (and neither does Congress). Like with Beavis and Butthead so many years ago, Judge shows a keen perception when it comes to cultural cues (something that also plays out on King of the Hill's focus on a particular American subset).  The series is partially based on Judge's own experiences in Silicon Valley in the 1980s, and it »

5 reasons why 'Silicon Valley' will win Best Comedy Series at Emmys

4 April 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

In 2009, ABC unleashed a comedic monster that would set the bar so high that it'd sweep its way through the Emmys four years in a row, leaving other shows to wonder: "Honestly, how much better do we have to get?!?" Yes, "Modern Family" is that good and there has been little challenge to its Emmy reign until now. HBO's "Silicon Valley," created by "Office Space" scribe and Emmy winner Mike Judge ("King of the Hill"), has taken the formula of two perennial Emmy nominees ("The Big Bang Theory" and "Entourage") and molded it into a super-hybrid "Modern Family" destroyer: a group of tech nerds with more relevant smarts than the "Big Bang" boys and on the verge of more money than even Ari Gold himself could imagine.

Review: HBO's 'Silicon Valley' highlights the best of Mike Judge

4 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Silicon Valley presented in the terrific new HBO comedy of the same name (it debuts Sunday night at 10) is a kind of Wild West for nerds: a lawless territory where they can be among their own kind rather than struggle to fit into a more structured world that doesn't understand them, and a place where they can seek massive fortune along the way.  That vision of the Valley also fits HBO itself in a way, since it's long been a place where creative types with idiosyncratic personalities and specific, uncompromising creative visions could go to find success in a safer, more wide-open environment. It's where David Chase could go when he was on the verge of quitting the TV business altogether and tell the story of a wiseguy in therapy. It's where David Milch could go to be given the absolute freedom to succeed so beautifully with "Deadwood" (and »

Johnny Knoxville to Voice Leonardo in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

3 April 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, if the newly redesigned heroes in a half-shell in the recent teaser trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles didn't turn you off (though a fan "fixed" them using the magic of Photoshop), then this next bit of news might do the trick. The film had already cast Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo and Danny Woodburn as Splinter, but apparently the actors who took those roles knew their voice might be switched out for someone else. And that's what happened with at least one turtle as Deadline reports Johnny Knoxville will voice Leonardo. In addition, Tony Shalhoub ("Monk" and Men in Black) has been brought in to voice the turtles' rat mentor Splinter. Knoxville isn't exactly known for his voice talents (or real acting talents), despite doing a couple episodes of "King of the Hill" and "SpongeBob SquarePants," so »

Silicon Valley: Mike Judge (computer) geeks out with new HBO comedy

3 April 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Before he made us simultaneously blush and belly laugh with irreverent comedies like 1999’s Office Space and the edgy animated sitcoms Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill, Mike Judge spent the late ’80s putting his physics degree to use as a Silicon Valley engineer. Now Judge commemorates that experience in HBO’s new live-action comedy Silicon Valley, which focuses on socially awkward computer programmer Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his trio of comrades who live in the home of eccentric millionaire Erlich (T.J. Miller) while plotting a startup of their own. In exchange for free accommodations at his “Hacker Hostel,” … Continue reading →

Idiocracy

2 April 2014 3:11 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

Five hundred years after signing up for a military cryogenic experiment, Private Joe Bauers (Luke Wilson) wakes up to find that he's the smartest guy on the planet. It's survival of the thickest as Joe discovers that evolution is no match for human stupidity in a country where IQs are so low that they've elected a pro-wrestling, ex-porn star as president. Mike Judge - creator of Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill - takes a well-aimed pop at the dumbing down of Western society in an overlooked but chucklesome satire. »

A Tribute to Sid Caesar and a Look Back at It’S A Mad Mad Mad Mad World

30 March 2014 7:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Sam Moffitt

It’s tough to say goodbye to Sid Caesar. I’ve been pondering what I can possibly say about a comedy legend who has been around as long as I can remember and contributed so much to comedy, mostly on television but also many times in motion pictures.

Firstly Sid Caesar was in on the ground floor of television, his earliest programs done live in 1949 before the video switch board had even been invented. In those earliest shows the director was on the stage telling the floor managers which cameras and mikes to hook or unhook to the coax and audio cables! Consider that just for a moment!

Caesar’s wonderful book Caesar’s Hours: My Life in Comedy, with Love and Laughter, co written with Eddie Friedfeld tells all about Sid Caesar’s years in show business and the legendary live variety shows; Your Show of Shows »

'Magic Mike 2' Gets a Director and Title

28 March 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steven Soderbergh's longtime assistant director Gregory Jacobs is taking over the reigns of Magic Mike Xxl, a sequel to 2012's dramatic comedy smash hit Magic Mike starring Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum.

Channing Tatum is returning as writer on this follow-up, which co-star Joe Manganiello recently revealed was scheduled to being shooting soon. Channing Tatum was originally planning to direct before the job ultimately went to Gregory Jacobs.

Steven Soderbergh, who directed the original, will stay on as an executive producer. Gregory Jacobs has served as his first Ad since 1993's King of the Hill, and started serving as a producer with the 2002 movie Full Frontal. He served as both assistant director and producer on Magic Mike.

Gregory Jacobs isn't a first time director, having helmed Criminal in 2004 and Wind Chill in 2007. He also created, wrote and is executive producing the Amazon Studios original series Red Oaks, a single camera comedy. »

Mike Judge Talks 'Silicon Valley' and What's So Funny About The Tech World

28 March 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Before he was an animator, before he created "Beavis and Butt-head" and "King of the Hill," before he directed cult comedy classics "Office Space" and "Idiocracy," Mike Judge was an engineer working in the Bay Area. So his new HBO series "Silicon Valley" finds him coming full circle in a idiosyncratic and impressive career, even as he takes on the very contemporary world of tech startups. Judge has always had a keen eye for everyday absurdities, and "Silicon Valley" finds plenty of hilarity in an industry dominated by awkward, hoodie-wearing coders who suddenly have a shot at being billionaires. The series, which premieres on April 6th at 10pm in a prime spot between the returns of "Game of Thrones" and "Veep," is Judge's first for premium cable, and he seems a little bemused by the creative freedom he's received -- "HBO doesn’t focus test anything," he noted. "They just put it out there. »
