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 05

The fifth act explores the rise of the Pied Piper company and the base of the product that they will create in future. Unlike the previous season, the writers doesn't spend their time on mumbo-jumbo emotional drama and focuses on concrete marketing strategies that is not only gripping but exhilarating to encounter.

Facial Recognition

The case projected in here might be feasible even though predictable and in the end if accounted, it seemed all moot to suffer to this extent for it. And the rest of the part is spent upon setting the plot tracks and the characters for the forthcoming events which it doesn't give a closure to, in this episode.
