To celebrate the release of the magnificent Season One of HBO’s Silicon Valley on Monday 23rd March, we’ve got a rather brilliant featurette to share with you exclusively.
From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (Office Space, Idiocracy), this critically-acclaimed HBO comedy takes viewers inside the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley. Inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80’s, the show follows the trials and tribulations of computer programmer Richard (Thomas Middleditch), who lives in a “Hacker Hostel” along with his friends Big Head (Josh Brener), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr), and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani).
Under the watchful eye of Erlich (T.J. Miller), a dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free (as long as he gets a 10% stake in their projects), the friends struggle to break into the elusive and lucrative market. It’s not only a lot of fun but something completely original, satirical and entertainingly clever.
Just enjoy the ride and watch our clip now:
Silicon Valley: The Complete First Series is released on Blu-ray and DVD from the 23rd March 2015, courtesy of HBO.
