Thoughts on “Silicon Valley”

By -

A few years ago, when the HBO series “Silicon Valley” premiered, I rolled my eyes. I don’t normally like looking at the culture in which I reside (which is why I’ve never watched any of the Steve Jobs movies).

A few weeks ago, though, prodded by my SV-loving son, I started watching it – – and, yep, you know what happened – – I got hooked and watched the entire thing, from Series 1 through 4, every episode. It’s a very funny show, and pretty damned accurate. I’m actually glad my son watched the whole thing, since I want him to understand the culture around here without getting hurt too much by it.

Here’s one clip from it, which is about 50 times funnier if you’ve been watching the whole series; it also is critically-important to the season finale.

I actually need to excuse myself for the afternoon, since I’m helping a dear friend get her office set up, but hopefully Jack or someone will come along with a post. In the meanwhile…….suck it, Jin-Yang.
