Quotes

Richard Hendricks: So they fired me before they hired you, so it's not your fault. I just I feel like this can't really work. Do you understand?
Jack Barker: I do, Richard.
Richard Hendricks: It's like... can I really be expected to do my best work when I am constantly feeling undervalued at the company that I started? Does that make sense?
Jack Barker: It does, Richard. Absolutely. I hear each and every one of your concerns loud and clear, and I appreciate your position.
Richard Hendricks: Mm.
Jack Barker: So, I guess we just won't do it. Come on, I'll walk you out.
Richard Hendricks: Wait. What? Sorry. ...

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 03

The third act is bolder, darker and brutal in this light toned series especially at such a point where it could have easily been a slower and a bit dull, but is exhilarating and going new places where the writers have never taken the viewers. The character development is carried off subtly and is engulfing the previous version of their with a definite constant pace.

Founder Friendly

It picks up right where the previous episode left and is exhilarating and gripping in its first act. While the rest of it is a bit slow and the writers are chewing off their characters which is completely appropriate yet not immensely entertaining where its uneven pace is the real culprit.
