Girls Season Six Premiere: “All I Ever Wanted”

Girls Season Six Premiere: “All I Ever Wanted”

Season Six of Girls is finally here and the first episode takes off from where Season Five leaves off. “Takes off” is a strong phrase for how the episode actually went. It was more like a slow Sunday drive down some unremarkable road, except with more swearing and the occasional mention of reproductive organs and awkward sex. Let’s recap first: Now, “All I Ever Wanted” opens up with Hannah typing up a printed version monolog she presented at the end of the Season Five finale. Out of sheer curiosity, I read it and I’m confused to how not only it got published, but how it landed her a writing assignment that she will...

Silicon Valley Season Three Finale: “The Uptick”

Silicon Valley Season Three Finale: “The Uptick”

This season of Silicon Valley has been full of firings, new CEOs, and corporate shuffling. Unlike previous seasons, we went into the finale not knowing what to expect. Season One had the build up to Tech Crunch and Season Two had the pending lawsuit. This season, it felt like we were left in the dark. Even the preview of the episode was extremely vague with Richard being told off by multiple characters. Unlike Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley fans don’t tune in each episode and expect that someone is going to die. This episode, however, started with the death of the elephant, Maurice, that Gavin used for one of his demonstrations last...

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Silicon Valley: “Bachman’s Earning’s Over-Ride”

Pied Piper is LIVE! Not only that, but it’s become hugely successful. We start off the episode with a Bloomberg interview of Erlich Bachman (henceforth known as Erlich Blachman according to the White Pages and Google) and Richard Hendricks. At first glance, it seems odd that Erlich is trying to steal the spotlight, especially since we know that he sold his 10% of the company. Why would he want to draw attention to himself? The only reason I could think of was Meinertzhagen’s Haversack. I guess it worked because nobody suspects that he technically has nothing to do with the company anymore. It seems to be working because it’s...

Game of Thrones: “The Broken Man”

Game of Thrones: “The Broken Man”

Check out last week’s review here. It has been a season of fast-paced story lines (including characters teleporting between regions in a single episode) and returning characters. Bran, Rickon, and Benjen are just a few of the characters that have returned to Game of Thrones after no screen time for one season or more. This season has already had a different feel from the previous five seasons. “The Broken Man” kicks off with a scene before the opening credits. This caught me by surprise and I had to rewind a bit because it felt like I missed something. Game of Thrones has only ever done this on season premieres. A septon and his...

Silicon Valley: “Maleant Data Systems Solutions”

Silicon Valley: “Maleant Data Systems Solutions”

Check out the review for last weeks episode here! When we last left our heroes of Pied Piper, their secret Skunkworks plan failed before it even got started. When Jack called the four into his office, I was fully expecting the hammer to crash down on their heads. It started that way, but as if by some miracle, Richard found his testicles that his doctor checked for earlier in the season. He explained that if order for Jack to get what he wants, he can’t fire Richard and his team. It may have been the first time he stood up for his project that resulted in it actually sticking. Even more surprising is that throughout the episode, he...
