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,...

Big Little Lies Finale: “You Get What You Need”

Big Little Lies Finale: “You Get What You Need”

Big Little Lies is a good example what sets HBO apart from other broadcasters. While it may not go down as a title that people will think of first when they hear the word “HBO” like Game of Thrones or The Sopranos, it doesn’t fail to deliver as a cinematic work made for the small screen. It is a risk to tell a story that opens so many questions right out of the gate and answer very few of them. It puts a lot of pressure on the final episode to tie up every loose end and present it as a gift to the viewer that watched every moment up until this point. While this series felt like a journey that lives up to the saying “It’s not about...

Girls: “Full Disclosure”

Girls: “Full Disclosure”

The episode starts off with Marnie and Hannah preparing a dinner because Hannah has news. Marnie is aware that this is the purpose of the meal but wastes no time talking about herself. Ray broke up with her. For whatever reason, this news could not wait until later. It’s because of reasons like this that it’s really difficult to care about Marnie. She’s always thinking about herself. Hannah shares with her the fact that she’s pregnant to an unexpected response of support. It doesn’t last long until the question comes up about whether or not Hannah should tell the father. This is one of the reasons I like Girls: it can be weird, it...

Crashing: The First 4 Episodes of Season One

Comedian Pete Holmes, along with Judd Apatow, have created the series Crashing for HBO and the critics love it. See? Also below we offer up a review of the first four episodes of its premiere season. See what we thought and check back later for a review of the latter half of the season.  Let’s get this going.     Episode # 1 – “Artie Lange” The series starts off with Pete (Pete Holmes) and his wife, Jess (Lauren Lapkus), cutting vegetables when she says she wants to have sex on the floor. He makes a joke, she tells him no bits, and then we are treated to a wedding photo, a picture of Jesus, and comic...

Big Little Lies: “Serious Mothering”

Big Little Lies: “Serious Mothering”

  Madeline wakes up from a dream that shows a man popping the cork off a champagne bottle, a woman walking barefoot on the beach in an unzipped dress, a quick shot of sex, and the closing of a door. This dream may mean something eventually, but from any information we have gotten from the first episode, we don’t know yet what that is. Madeline spends the morning staring out into the ocean until she is startled by Chloe. She then talks about what could be out there and what may lie beneath the surface. I wasn’t a fan of Madeline in the first episode and after seeing the second episode, I can’t say I’m a fan now, but this episode...
