Review:

I’ve wanted to watch this show for a while, but have a hard time paying for a premium channel for only a handful of shows that I only kind of want to watch. Using Amazons free 7 day trial though I was finally able to watch and I’m pretty sure we’re going to end up paying for at least one month of the service.

Anyway, watching this with my husband he and I both kept saying just how true to life everything was. Neither of us has worked in Silicon Valley, but we’ve both worked in and for tech companies. I’ve never met programmers quiet as awkward as Richard, Thomas Middleditch, most of the ones I knew were total douche bags, but I could see pieces of him in a collection of men so it’s not unrealistic.

From the very beginning I just knew he was going to be taken advantage of and I was screaming at the screen for him not to do things, my mothering instinct is very strong lol, but I was pleasantly surprised by the ending of the first season. Things didn’t work out perfectly, but they did work out. I like that, I like having hope, and not just a constant dumping ground of everything going wrong.

Also, this show is freaking hilarious, that last episode especially. Looking forward to watching the rest of the seasons available.

4/5
