silicon valley the complete second seasonTechnology seems to be advancing in leaps and bounds in recent years. IT seems like it would be a very fast paced and dynamic area to be in. This witty new television series delves into that world. Series co-creator Mike Judge (Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill) worked in the IT field in the late Eighties, so he knows what he speaks of. Plus it is the right time for a series like this computer programmers/developers are hot due to shows like Mr. Robot and nerd chic has been going on since The big Bang Theory exploded.


Four programmers live together in a small house and are trying to make it big in Silicon Valley.  One has developed a music app that has earned him enough money to buy the property and he has taken in the other three as tenants. Together they are going to work on the app to perfect it into something that will allow them to form their own company.


Once their app is out and has become a success is when things start getting really interesting. They are finally making some money and yet things are not going completely smoothly. Most of that is due to the fact that their competitors at Raviga and Nucleus are undergoing huge changes. Pitches happen and things don’t always work out as the members of TechCrunch/Pied Piper hoped. Near successes followed by crises happen one after another.


Writing is sharp and the actors really inhabit the characters they portray. The characters are all believable and could exist in the world. Comedic situations and timing are all on point. Basically, the show is firing on all engines. You don’t have to know a lot about technology to get the humour (I found myself laughing out loud a couple of times per episode) involved. Everyone who has an IT department where they work will be able to relate. Though it is accurate enough that it is a runaway hit with programmers and computer nerds.
