I’ve been asked many times over recent months, “Have you seen ‘Silicon

Valley’? No?! Well you best get on that!”

So I watched the first episode, and as I watched, I wondered if I was seeing

the same show everyone was raving about. I found the jokes to be the same tired

versions of the same nerdy in-jokes from every show about geeks ever. An “I

know H.T.M.L.” T-shirt? Really. The whole thing played like a mediocre SNL

episode.

Maybe later in the series a character I care about will emerge, but based on

episode one, they’re all basically cardboard cutouts of the same guys (and it’s

all guys) we’ve seen before.

Disappointing.
