    Haven't seen the second episode yet, but the first was hilarious.

    this and this. Will probably watch Episode 2 tonight. Enjoyed the first episode a lot. T.J. Miller is the ticket for me. I think people either like him or hate him. I think he's hilarious. His line delivery is just so unique. He's just a funny guy.

    Saw the pilot but didn't catch the second episode last night. I like it; some of the jargon goes right over my head but Mike Judge has dumbed it down enough so that the show will appeal to a broad audience and not just tech geeks.

    I might check this show out just to laugh at my own experience. I had the unfortunate honor of working with some Silicon Valley folks about a year and a half ago. That place is a land of delusion. Most of their business models are complete junk and their entire hope is getting bought out by a major company because they will eventually run out of VC money. I am always amazed at the amount of money that gets thrown around for companies with no assets except for users and algorithms.

    I'm a type that one little thing in a pilot episode can get me interested immediately if it makes me belly laugh. In the pilot of Silicon Valley it was when they pitch Peter Gregory at that party and he drives away in that teeny tiny narrow car. Having lived in Silicon Valley, I know these types of people and it's spot on and that car appearance just made me laugh hard.

    He's on a cartoon on Disney, of all places, that's really good. "Gravity Falls." It also has Kristen Schaal, Linda Cardellini, and John Ritter's son.

    I think it's been really good so far. It has a lot of potential and i hope they keep it going. I'm still mad that HBO canceled Family Tree :mad:

    Sorry for going slightly OT about TJ Miller. I recognize the main character on Silicon Valley from somewhere, I need to IMDB where. So far we've been really enjoying it, will probably watch the second episode tonight.

    Saw the first two episodes. Don't love yet, but can see some potential. Not as good as VEEP, but I didn't love that show until almost the end of the first season.

    Loved both episodes. The best part was the doctor visit about the guy deciding to take the money or keep the company. I totally lost it there.

    I liked the Mass Effect 3 joke in the 2nd episode. Wasn't expecting to hear one of those

    When they kept trashing him and he kept overhearing I was losing it. That was great.
