Reviews around silicon valley (5.00 of 5)

  • The bottom line is that I highly recommend Silicon Valley if you like dry and awkward humor, but if not this show might not be for you, but even if you don't this show might be the exception.
  • As a fan of the tech industry, HBO has done a remarkable job in portraying the vibrant Silicon Valley startup culture in a hilarious, somewhat exaggerate but truthful way
  • Whereas Amazon's similar series The Betas is great, "Silicon Valley" easily surpasses it
  • I always have high expectations from Mike Judge, and was especially hoping that Silicon Valley would be great.
  • Silicon Valley is a close to accurate portrayal of the supremely talented inhabitants of this rarefied atmosphere of technical prowess with the mix of Big Money... and the infinite variety of situations that such a mix can create!Its realistic, hilarious, sometimes satirical but always immensely entertaining!

Reviews around character (4.19 of 5)

Reviews around reality (1.00 of 5)

  • All humor must be based on exaggerated reality to be really funny, and this show is obviously based on real life in Silicon Valley.
  • The show "Silicon Valley" actually glosses over much of this seedy reality by pretending that there can be a start-up based on some profound data "compression scheme" that compresses both random data and the normal compression-amenable media
  • Living in Silicon Valley and recognizing all the ham-handed cliches, I was kind of disappointed (the reality is weirder and more exciting) and this made me cringe.
