Disclaimer: The Fandads were supplied with a review copy of Silicon Valley Season 3 and all thoughts and opinions are our own.
HBO continues to deliver the strong and smart comedies and Silicon Valley had been one that I have been watching since season 2. That's right, I did not start watching this show when it first premiered. I caught a few episodes of the second season and had to go back to watch the first season and catch up. Clearly, that was a smart move, because this show is great, especially if you are in the tech industry like some of us bloggers are.
If you have not seen an episode of Silicon Valley, I don't want to give too much away, but it has to do with the ups-and-downs of starting a tech company and loyalty amongst friends. The show was created by Mike Judge, so it has that awkward humor that he is known for.
In this season of Silicon Valley we see how the characters try to deal with Richard (Thomas Middledutch) being removed from his position of Pied Piper. We also see how T.J. Miller's character of Erlich tries to find new ways to make money and how he tries starting something new with Big Head. Yep, that's that character's name.
Other side stories involve Dinesh, played by Kumail Nanjiani creating a video chat program with better resolution just to get a better look at one of the programmers that he is working with. While Gilfoyle, played by Martin Starr, just keeps being a lovable curmudgeon that seems to always be ahead of everyone, while take them down a notch.
Silicon Valley is a fun show that is on par with other HBO comedies like "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Extras". If you have not watched it, do yourself a favor and start watching it. You might learn a thing or two about tech companies.

From Mike Judge and Alec Berg comes a new season of the Emmy®-nominated comedy that takes viewers inside Silicon Valley's high-tech gold rush: a land of big ideas and bigger egos. After last season's shocking ending, which found Pied Piper celebrating legal victory just as Richard (Thomas Middleditch) was ousted as CEO, Season 3 picks up where we left off, with Richard offered the diminished role of CTO and the rest of his team – Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) – facing the question of just how far their loyalty extends. With a new no-nonsense CEO hell-bent on transforming everything from Pied Piper's offices to its business agenda, the guys must find a way to triumph in the war of Art vs. Commerce, maneuvering the many competing interests along the way.
