Partially inspired by co-creator Mike Judge's experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 1980s, this comedy series follows the misadventures of introverted computer programmer Richard and his brainy friends as they attempt to strike it rich in a high-tech gold rush. They live together in a Bay Area startup incubator loosely run by self-satisfied dot-com millionaire Erlich, who lets them stay in his house rent-free in exchange for a stake in the projects they invent there. But when Richard develops a powerful search algorithm at his day job, he finds himself caught in the middle of a bidding war between his boss -- whose firm offers Richard an eight-figure buyout -- and a deep-pocketed venture capitalist.
Unexpectedly, there is no better TV series about the challenges of starting a small business and navigating the depressing waters of corporate takeovers than "Silicon Valley". Mike Judge’s HBO series is smart, funny, and profane, stylistically juxtaposing its (mostly) white uber -nerds against a musical backdrop of hardcore rap. It’s both a parody and a reflection. What continues to be so impressive about the show is how it investigates the nuances of dull business dealings in a way that feels emotionally urgent. It’s a new spin on cringe comedy that sets grim realities in a candy-colored world (with artisanal lunch menus, neon billiards tables, and bean bag chairs meant to entice employees into working their lives away).--Allison Keane, Collider, April 20, 2016
