Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butthead, Office Space, and King of the Hill, is back with a goof on Silicon Valley, which is called, you guessed it, Silicon Valley. You may have seen the ads for it already, and it has the cast wearing black turtle necks, doing their best Steve Jobs poses.Silicon Valley will debut on HBO on April 6, and we figured by now there would be some official news on it, and sure enough there’s even a review for it, because the first two episodes were premiered at the South By Southwest festival. The verdict?
The site geekosystem writes, “Given Mike Judge’s track record of creating shows I love, I had high expectations, and show didn’t disappoint.” One fault geekosystem had with the show is the lack of women, but as we know, technology and geek stuff can often be a man’s world. “Sillicon Valley is wonderful, but it feels like a missed opportunity to highlight the women that are working the tech world to hopefully inspire more women to get involed in the future.”
The really good news here is, “At least Silicon Valley isn’t playing up nerd stereotypes.” Although if it’s done in the right spirit, we nerds can definitely take a joke.
