Quotes

Donald 'Jared' Dunn: It's a classic document dump. But what they didn't take into account is the power of us. So grab a box, guys. Start pulling anything you think is relevant. And you may have to work pretty hard, but it will free us from this lawsuit.
Bertram Gilfoyle: Are you saying, "work will set you free"?
Donald 'Jared' Dunn: Yes. They have the manpower. We have the perseverance. Triumph of the will.
[Leaves]
Dinesh Chugtai: He's the most cheerful person I've ever heard quote Hitler.

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.

Binding Arbitration

Its always entertaining to encounter court room drama especially when they have been building it up for two seasons and even though it is nail-biting and exhilarating, the writing still seems a bit sloppy and corny on little corners in some places where references aren't working.
