See also

Mike Judge scores again with his fresh and hilarious new HBO series Silicon Valley. Well known for his animated series Beavis and Butt-Head, the successful Fox series King of the Hill, the iconic comedy film Office Space, and the hilarious film Idiocracy. This brilliant new comedy surrounds five geeky programmers who are barely getting by in a small house located in the famed Palo Alto area. These young guys are allowed to live in the character Erlich’s house for free with a promise of a 10% cut of their projects. Flying under the radar, shy and nerdy Richard creates a music search app he calls Pied Piper and finally gets noticed by Gavin, the head of a made up company called Hooli.

When asked how he prepared for his role as Richard, Thomas Middleditch stated "My prep work was years and years of being bullied. It helps to be an absolute loser growing up." Joining Middleditch is a fabulous cast including T.J. Miller as Erlich, Josh Brener as Big Head, Amanda Crew as Monica, Zack Woods as Jared, Kumail Nanjiani as Dinesh, Matt Ross as Gavin, and Christopher Evan Welch as Peter Gregory. Clear stand outs so far are actors T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch, and Amanda Crew. Silicon Valley airs Sundays airs Sundays 10 PM ET. No doubt this will make a very nice home for viewers needing comic relief after watching the intensely awesome drama of Game of Thrones.
