From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (Office Space, Beavis and Butt-head), this HBO half-hour comedy takes viewers inside the world of tech start-ups – and the socially awkward underdogs who try to navigate its lucrative potential. Starring a talented ensemble of young comic actors (see below) and veterans, Silicon Valley charts the rising fortunes of Richard, an introverted computer programmer who lives in a “Hacker Hostel” start-up incubator along with his friends Big Head, Gilfoyle, and Dinesh. These social misfits live under the watch of Erlich, a dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free – as long as he gets a 10% stake in their projects. Stuck working part-time at a large tech company called Hooli, Richard’s obscure website, Pied Piper, is going nowhere fast. But when a mid-level Hooli executive named Jared is apprised of the value of the site’s novel compression algorithm, Richard finds himself caught in the middle of an extreme bidding war between Hooli founder Gavin Belson and independent billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory.

There are many obvious differences between the two shows, but there are also more similarities than I am willing to spend time to list. It seems that Silicon Valley will be more than sufficient to fill the void for me left by the cancellation of Betas. Silicon Valley is fast paced, witty, funny, and the characters have a lot of depth. As many other reviewers have branded themselves, I am also on the software side of the tech industry so I can tag nearly all characters in this series to somebody I know personally. Mike Judge has found another winning formula which I hope will remain interesting and relevant for many episodes and years to come.
My only complaint about season one is how there are only eight episodes as it seems that most pilot seasons are closer to ten.
