Richard thought everything was in place, but the name 'Pied Piper' he chose for the company and even has t-shirts printed with seems dorky to his team, who grudgingly accept it's a little late to change after fruitless brainstorming for an alternative. Worse, is already legally reserved by a petty Midwest farmer for his son's sprinkler firm, so Richard tries to personal approach, with promising and scary results. Written by KGF Vissers

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 01

The first seasons are always their best, as that is how the series gets lift up for further season and writers aren't afraid to explore more on wider range territories. The first eight acts in here are mostly working out as bolder, bigger and newer steps for the characters and the amount of drastic change that they do receive from the surrounding the reside in. Such tiny aspects have been well taken care by the writers and the primary reason behind it all would be the awareness of the trajectory that they are about to embark upon in future.

Articles Of Incorporation

It is filled with all the business tactics 101 that comes in handy while initiating something new and addition to that if you have some troubled partners that are not helpful as they should be, things get out of hand and a chain of series spirals up that is risky and somewhat like a punch in the gut.
