    The deft, resonant satire that helped make Judge's Office Space a cult hit takes on farcical new dimension in Silicon Valley.

    The pilot is flat-out brilliant ... It’s the best, most wide-appeal show that HBO has had in ages.

    As in Office Space, the heart of the show is watching Richard and his friends struggle to make sense of themselves and their purpose. They're good, weird guys you want to hang out with.

    Silicon Valley, a new comedy about programmers trying to make it big in a world where unimaginable fortune may be only an app away, is both smart and funny.

    With an appealing cast, a relatively fresh setting and smart jokes ("Every party in Silicon Valley ends up like a Hasidic wedding," i.e., the men and women are always separated), Silicon Valley is definitely worth your time investment.

    Silicon Valley is a comedy, certainly, and a very funny one, but it doesn't spend all its time reminding you of the fact.

    Silicon Valley has some very solid laughs but traffics in stereotypes that feel outdated.

There's no executions of your favorite characters, offensive language and a **** ton of sex. Instead not-so-famous, but awesome actors serve you funny and witty jokes and live every tech nerd's dream in the Silicon Valley. With a very broad audience, this is the start of the next big thing!

A few of the jokes fell a little flat, but that's probably just because it's the pilot and the whole thing hasn't quite gelled together yet.

    High hopes for how this show will pan out.
