    I couldn’t find a thread for this (the new search engine clearly doesn’t help), so please delete this in case there is already a place for Silicon Valley fans.

    Season 3 begins today and the reviews are great! http://www.metacritic.com/tv/silicon-valley/season-3

    Episode: Founder Friendly

    Synopsis: After being unceremoniously fired, an angry Richard faces a tough decision: accept the diminished role of CTO, or leave Pied Piper for good. Erlich takes a shine to Jack Barker, Laurie’s new choice of CEO, while Dinesh and Gilfoyle weigh their options in Richard’s absence. At Hooli, Gavin tries to improve his image by admitting failure, and Big Head gets wind of major changes.

    HBO’s best comedy, if you ask me. Hoping for another stellar season.

    Very nice premiere! It’s so entertaining I could never say something too negative about it. The only complaint I usually have is how the comedy in the show is rarely attached to the plot. The two funnier scenes on this episode (the Rigby and the mustache scenes) have a way too simplistic comedic core, unlike, say, Veep, whose plot relies entirely on comic timing. But, again, the show is so well written that it remains a thrill to watch.

    A really solid premiere episode. A great case for Thomas Middleditch to finally get his first Emmy nomination as he delivers some potent acting with a more dramatic edge than we are used to seeing from him, while Zach Woods continues to steal the show. What I love about this show is that, unlike most comedies, every moment counts, with pretty much every scene being crucial to the continuous plot over the course of the different seasons. Great stuff, and I can’t wait for next week’s episode.

    This was an okay return, but not worth the inevitable name-check directing for Mike Judge. I hope that that is not the last that we see of the lawyer now that he is in prison. Matt McCoy is great in that role. I am not too enthusiastic about Stephen Tobolowsky. The character serves its purpose and seems a good fit for this universe, but I have seen that guy in too many things and he is not exactly a chameleon. The casting on this show is normally so good because it takes someone like McCoy whom I had never noticed or thought much of before and reveals his talents. I know who Tobolowsky is and I know what he can do.

    This was pretty good — not a ton of laughs, but they had a lot to go through with Richard’s firing.

    Solid, if unspectacular.

    I enjoyed the more understated, muted aspect of the premiere – and the fact that it literally picked up from the S2 cliffhanger of Richard’s firing. Thomas Middleditch really nailed his performance in this episode. He plays the flitty, manic character so well, but I also enjoyed that he brought some dramatic elements to the role.

    The writing remains sharp and TJ Miller continues to KILL it like a gd king. Obsessed.

    I beg to differ. A much better episode than last week’s. Even the pointless Chinese character had two priceless scenes. And the horse coitus (lol) was epic. Great final scene. B+

    Just watched the second episode, and it was probably one of the weakest episodes of Silicon Valley yet. Poor plotting, and it didn’t have the feel of the show, mainly as they kept separating the core cast, which isn’t a good idea as most of the humour comes from their chemistry as an ensemble. Middleditch was decent, and it was good to have Jian Yang back, but I can’t stand Action Jack- he’s just not funny, and adds nothing creative or new. And I think that screw the horse may be the new jump the shark- what were they thinking?!- this isn’t an Adam Sandler comedy. Hoping for better things next week, and hopefully they can get back on the right track.

    Was very confused/disturbed by the horse sex scene – but it was an otherwise decent episode. Not super laugh-out-loud, seemed more like table-setting the upcoming narrative threads of the season, with Richard’s product being marketed and sold in an almost unimaginably different way he envisioned

    I’m kind of sad to see them not working in Erlich’s house anymore!
