Did You Know?


Charlie Saxton, who plays the "Crushing Applicant," played a member of a small startup on "Betas," one of the first Amazon Prime original programs. It was also about a young software company in the San Francisco area. That startup similarly began as a team of four young men, with a woman as the fifth member hired. It was released in 2013, a year before the premiere of Silicon Valley, so the character's "non-crushing" time in 2012 does not appear to be related. See more »


Richard Hendricks: So it says here that you're proficient in C++, code assembly for multiple processor architectures, and... that you are a cyborg?
Jared Patakian: That is correct short for cybernetic organism. I came into this world of filth and pain with a congenital heart condition, requiring the installation of a pacemaker, upon which I am mortally dependent.
Donald 'Jared' Dunn: Wow, he's technically a cyborg.
Richard Hendricks: Yeah, yeah. Makes the resume accurate.
Jared Patakian: Look, we all know that I can make a shitload more money working for some multi-colored Happy Town...

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 02

The second season is about the exposure of the technical guys to the outer business world and strategies that they are unaware of and somehow has to tackle it all through their own perspective, agenda and tactics which creates these chain of events that are both hilarious and troublesome to encounter keeping the audience on the edge of the seat.

The Lady

It is low and a bit mellow on terms of every little aspects as it spends most of its time on setting the plot and the mumbo-jumbo emotional rama which they later on plays it smartly and doesn't let it overpower the nature or the tone of the series and neither wastes its time on it.
