    The new trailer is up on YouTube and it looks hilarious! Can't link to it because of naughty language but check it out. TJ and Kumail look like they are going to bring the funny to the show

    Anyone else watching this?

    Hilarious!

    It helps also that I am a Software Engineer myself, so the dialog contains an extra layer to me. My wife is computer illiterate and she finds it just as hilarious.

    This is hilarious.

    "Names stick. My name's only Jared because Gavin called me that on my first day. My real name is Donald."

    That keeled me over properly. Love this show so far.

    The Peter Thiel Sesame Seed Scene From Silicon Valley Is Real!

    Man I had no idea that the guy who played Gregory was dead, that really sucks. He is one of the great things about this show.

    All in all this show really delivers. I haven't missed an episode yet and it really has that Mike Judge feel to it. I love TJ, he really cracks me up every episode. Him tripping in a bathroom and bringing home a little kid is hilarious

    Wow.

    I didn't know this, either. Apparently, he died in the middle of filming this show last year.

    Here's some articles about his death that I found:

    Mike Judge on how this affects the show: http://www.thewrap.com/tca-silicon-valley-mike-judge-alec-berg-hbo-christoper-evan-welch

    Wow that's a huge blow to the show. Especially after the last ep being about how alot of it is about the two billionaire egos at each other.

    I was not sold on this show after the pilot. But 5 eps in now, I'm pretty much onboard. It's a bit quirky going for humor over drama in most places (holograms, vomit gags, etc) which seems a bit odd for a HBO show, but the mural gag of the last ep had me in stitches. I guess we'll see in the next ep how much it'll be affected by Welch's passing.

    Damn, I had no idea that he passed. Huge blow to the show. Gregory's scenes are always among the funniest.

    Anyway, this show is really hitting its stride. I was skeptical at first (in large part due to the fact that I cannot stand the actor who plays Elrich)...but even he is winning me over. Although the show is not quite up to Veep level quality (hell, Veep's 30 minute take on the hedonism and hubris of Silicon Valley was leagues ahead of anything that this show has done), it is still an enjoyable way to kill a half hour. Plus, Mike Judge usually takes some time to hit his stride (Beavis and Butthead and King of the Hill didn't really go full throttle until the second or third season). I am confident that this can be something special eventually.

    You don't like TJ?! That's crazy talk man, he is hilarious. But ya This show is getting better and better. I assume like most of the things Mike Judge touches it wont be appreciated for a while

    I love this show! TJ is my favorite of the bunch, but Ive liked the actor since Cloverfield so that isnt surprising.

    When he saw that garage door, "What in the good ****!?" and later when the cops found the pot plants.:lmao:

    Jared's subplot in the latest episode was incredible. "Mr Car."

    I've been catching up on it and after a slow start it has gotten better. I wasn't sure I would like it initially but now having seen up through the fifth episode it is interesting. Surprising on the death of Welch though.

    You should have seen him in The Goodwin Games. A very underappreciated show, IMO.

    Erlich attacking the kid who scammed Richard was my favourite scene of the show so far. I lost it when he threw the bike over the hedges.

    Man not sure I would have noticed otherwise but Gregory's absence is very apparent to me. I wonder if they will try and keep it going with the busy billionaire charade for next season

    What made it hilarious was they were serious and became obsessed with trying to find the answer.

    Not only that but it led to a massive break-through in data compression.
