Silicon Valley - Season 1 (2014)
Wednesday 4th March 2015
The socially challenged underdogs of the lucrative world of tech start-ups are finally uncovered in the painfully funny Silicon Valley - Season 1 released on Blu-ray and DVD from the 23rd March 2015, courtesy of HBO.
From the offbeat mind of Mike Judge (Office Space, Idiocracy), this critically-acclaimed HBO comedy takes viewers inside the high-tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley. Inspired by Judge's own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the 80's, the show follows the trials and tribulations of awkward computer programmer Richard (Thomas Middleditch - The Wolf of Wall Street), who lives in a "Hacker Hostel" along with his friends Big Head (Josh Brener - The Big Bang Theory), Gilfoyle (Martin Starr - This Is The End), and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani - Sex Tape).
Under the watchful eye of Erlich (T.J. Miller - Transformers: Age of Extinction), a dotcom millionaire who lets them stay in his house for free (as long as he gets a 10% stake in their projects), the friends struggle to break into the elusive and lucrative market. Richard is stuck in a part-time job at tech company Hooli, and his obscure website, Pied Piper, is going nowhere fast. But when a colleague realises just how valuable the site's compression algorithm is, Richard finds himself caught in the middle of an extreme bidding war between Hooli founder Gavin Belson (Matt Ross - American Horror Story) and independent billionaire venture capitalist Peter Gregory (Christopher Evan Welch - The Master).
Combining brilliant observational comedy with a fantastic cast and razor-sharp dialogue, Silicon Valley - Season 1 taps into the zeitgeist in a completely unique way and shows, in the funniest way possible, how often the people most qualified to succeed are really the least capable of handling success.
