Entertaining
30 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show oscillates, but not extremely, in its goodness from show to show. It stays pretty busy making references and acknowledgments to those who will be watching intently for it, but still feels blurry in the tech time-line.

The show as a derivative of the situations used by Mad Men: with the salesman/iconic-Jobsesque pitching of the next great dream product, can be relatively fun to watch and works for the most part, but don't be surprised when it's not on par with Mad Men's superb writing/writers.

I will continue to watch the show and hope that it holds its ground, but I'm confused about the long game within its premise, the pace has to keep watchers from becoming bored without exhausting the story before season 2/3. Can it be done? I'm leaning toward no.
