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 fourth act explores more about the difficulties and tiny little aspects that factors in while establishing a company. The "love" factor is installed in here along with some issues among the group which doesn't go as anticipated as they are short on performance and execution and it fails to draw the attention too but what hooks the viewers in are the business tactics and strategies that are brutally practical and diplomatic.
Another typical business fiasco by TJ Miller where it has an interesting approach if not entertaining or humorous. And on Thomas' track the emotional drama of his with Martin Starr doesn't come out as anticipated but it surely works for the most part of the episode.
