    No thread? I enjoyed the show.

    My favorite line was from Kumail Nanjiani-I love him anyway-and he delivered it perfectly-I already deleted the ep, so paraphrasing, but it was about how the men and women divide themselves at the Silicon Valley parties just like at a Chassidic Wedding...:D:D:p;)

    That Erlich dude is deluded-hilarious! I loved his "I know HTML-How To Meet Ladies" t-shirt...and how he told Richard "You see me as a guy who has it all together..." Um, yeah...:rolleyes:

    "That's a bad doctor in there..." :eek:

    I will definitely watch for now...several LOL moments for me...what did others think? :)

    Technically I didn't watch it since I don't have HBO, but hypothetically if I had watched it I'd watch it again. :D

    Almost lost me at the beginning, but improved a bit by the end. The acting is pretty poor all the way around, especially the 10% ~partner guy - don't even know his name...

    I may check out the next couple to see where this goes.

    It wasn't bad, but nothing earth-shaking for me. The reviews were mostly glowing, so I had high expectations.

    I'll stick around for at least one or two more, see how it develops. I like the lead and a couple of his friends, not sure how much I can take of some of the more grating characters.

    Hey, It's Mike Judge. It can only get better.

    I did drift about 20 minutes in, but I think it'll work well.

    "We're saving the world."

    The big flaw? AFAIK, if you work on something while you're employed, you dont' clear rights to it, but the deal may vary. For sure, you have to be sure not use a single bit of product or time from work.

    Item: Steve Wozniak showed the Apple 1 first to HP, where he worked. HP had no interest in it.

    I like that the guy from Rubicon is playing the billionaire with Autism.

    I meant I'd watch another episode. I don't need to watch the pilot again. ;)

    Yeah! I'm thinking it was Meta. The show's group of heroes have the same make up, except no Oriental Asian guy yet.

    The funniest line in the "Making of Silicon Valley" was one of the actors saying Mike Judge is fine except he keeps trying to sound like Butthead for some reason.

    Wait'll he does Hank Hill.

    I really didn't watch a lot of Beavis & Butthead, but when I think Mike Judge I hear Hank Hill's voice.

    I haven't watched the episode yet, but am looking forward to it.

    I live in Silicon Valley so a lot of it strikes a chord with me. Some of it upsets me because I'm jealous I missed out on some of the really good opportunities around here. :p
