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: “Terms of Service”

Silicon Valley: “Terms of Service”

Richard has departed the group to work on his own solo project. He wants to create his own internet and it will be interesting to see what he can come up with on his own.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t take very long for him to feel out in the cold.  The whole group is celebrating the success of receiving several offers and Richard isn’t invited. In fact, he crashes the hang out pretty hardcore. Meanwhile, CEO, Dinesh is getting just a smidge too big for his britches. When Richard was CEO, he had just enough confidence to make crazy decisions but not enough to be a douche. Dinesh, however, is a little too confident in himself....

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,...

HBO’s Spring 2017 Lineup Locked In

HBO’s Spring 2017 Lineup Locked In

As is the norm at HBO every drama hour is coupled with a set of comedy half-hours to make a Sunday night a complete package. 2017 is a slightly different schedule than the past few years have been; that is mainly because of GAME OF THRONES’ move and the arrival of limited series like THE YOUNG POPE and BIG LITTLE LIES. Here is our opportunity to see which shows are filling the calendar next. The comedy duo did not break up this time around. SILICON VALLEY and VEEP are still back to back. The dramatic hour is reserved for the final season of THE LEFTOVERS. HBO very simply states: SILICON VALLEY – HBO has confirmed an April debut for...

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: “Daily Active Users”

Silicon Valley: “Daily Active Users”

This week on Silicon Valley, we learn many interesting ideas. We learn that statistics are important when launching a new program, but specific statistics are more important than others. We learn Guilfoyle is a human lie-detector. And we learn Jared is not the sweet, little innocent that he seems. While total downloads are in the multiple hundred thousands, daily active users is nowhere close to that. When you want to consider the success of your product, it isn’t who just buys it.  It is the person who buys it and then continuously uses it.  I can go buy a tube of toothpaste.  But if I don’t actually use the toothpaste, it...

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...

Silicon Valley: “To Build a Better Beta”

Silicon Valley: “To Build a Better Beta”

Check out last week’s review here. To release or not to release? That is the question for Richard as the beta is preparing to take its first little baby steps into the tech world.  And Bachmanity? More like Broke-manity for our pals Erlich and Bighead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8_fjN6ZFbg Richard is waffling over whether or not to release the beta version of Pied Piper. I get his wariness.  Knowing the way things usually go for them, it is not a stretch of the imagination to think releasing the beta could be catastrophic for the company.  Things don’t usually go smoothly for the rag-tag bunch of misfits who call Pied...
