Game of Thrones: “Stormborn”

Game of Thrones: “Stormborn”

This episode starts with a storm, much like the night that Daenerys was born, as Varys and Tyrion point out. Hence, why she’s known as Daenerys Stormborn. Now that Daenerys has finally reached Westeros, there is much to do if she is to take over the Iron Throne. Being in a land where her family was killed off  and where she and her brother got driven out of is enough to make anyone suspicious of those closest to them, especially if they spent much of their time there. Daenerys confronts Varys about where his loyalties truly lie. Her suspicions are valid because we’ve seen him tactically switch sides throughout the series. He sticks...

Silicon Valley: “Patent Troll”

Silicon Valley: “Patent Troll”

The episode starts off with Richard visiting his medical “professional”. Let’s face it. Nobody that Richard interacts with could be considered professional. His doctor is no exception. While Richard is concerned about the possibility of getting an STD, his doctor is concerned about how Richard lost an inch off his height since last year he saw him. I wonder how much shorter he actually is because he didn’t even take his shoes off. Erlich tries to secure a job at Bream Hall after landing them a big client. In true Erlich fashion, he does whatever he can to get what he wants, including playing the sexism card. This leads to...

Silicon Valley: “The Blood Boy”

Silicon Valley: “The Blood Boy”

Jumping right in, Richard learns that there’s more to having to work with Gavin Belson than garages within garages or pools on yachts. He still has to deal with the blood boy. The introduction of the “transfusion associate” was awkward, to say the least. Erlich convinces Monica that Laurie’s baby shower is nothing but a ruse to form a coup against Laurie. I can’t help but see his point because, besides Monica and Laurie, there isn’t another woman in attendance. I don’t think I’ve seen a “baby shower” like it. The blood boy is invited to overstep his bounds by Gavin by giving his opinion on how to launch the peer-to-peer...

Silicon Valley: “Intellectual Property”

Silicon Valley: “Intellectual Property”

Following Dinesh’s short reign of CEO of Piper Chat, Richard is still hopped up on caffeine and whatever else he’s doing to stay awake until the point that he has no idea what sleep feels like. He walks to see his doctor because he has all this energy and needs an excuse to walk somewhere. It’s not like his doctor gives him any useful advice anyway. Jin Yang is trying to pitch his recipe app to a VC, which quickly gets turned into a “Shazam for food” idea. While it sounds like a great idea and something that would easily attract many users, how would it even work? Would it recognize the shape and consistency of a dish, measure its...

Silicon Valley Season 4 Premiere: “Success Failure”

Silicon Valley Season 4 Premiere: “Success Failure”

The season premiere of Silicon Valley is finally here and it starts out with… an ad? No, it’s not Tables, it’s just Richard trying to pitch a VC on Piper Chat. As it turns out, it’s failing to shake off the soiled reputation of Pied Piper because of the click farming scandal. It was an entertaining way of re-introducing most of the cast in a hilarious exchange while establishing the main conflict of the episode: the project needs funding, more users, and a way to shed its bad name with investors. All this and the opening credits haven’t even started. The Pied Piper team is basking in the success of their new product Piper Chat,...
