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.
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.
Two In The Box
The additional character has no specific property or characteristic which was a smart approach by the writers as it helps keep the series grounded and resemble more towards practicality and as far as humor is concerned the third season has more to offer than the rest of it did up till now.
