Goofs

The fake users from a click farm are referred to be from a Bangladeshi click farm while the last couple of scenes of the previous episode "Daily Active Users" shows a person getting up, going to some internet cafe or something through crowded roads with posters and names of shops written in Hindi (the major language of India). The people showed presumably look similar to south Asian but the geographical error is clear, they are not from Bangladesh. See more »

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.

The Uptick

The tricks that the writers have been holding up the sleeve fails to create the anticipated impact and the reason behind it, would be the predictability and lack of execution. There is no such cliffhanger as opposed to previous final acts to rely upon, it all seems like a perfect closure.
