LB Sees SILICON VALLEY

SV series

The Good:

  • I’m thinking, I’m thinking….

The Not-So-Good:

  • The writing, acting, and general production values here are so atrocious that this series should simply be called SILLY VALLEY. Although, come to think of it, that would insult genuinely wonderfully silly people everywhere.

Conclusion:

My inner nerd really wanted to like this. Or to at least hate the show so much that it could “love” it with a gleeful sneer. But, um, no way. SILICON VALLEY just takes all the classic (as in cliche-ed) smart tropes and makes them dumb, dumb dumb. It amazes my how a new show could present us with material that’s so damn old.
