“Silicon Valley” is a show that cuts close to home. When I’m not writing about the latest movie farted by the studio system, I’m studying search engines and their related changes. While the five central characters are stereotypes, they are earned parodies of the modern Tech world. Hell, I had to stop the show halfway through due to the amount of cringe relating material to people I know. But, what do you do with that?
Mike Judge has gone from animation to developing an insane knack of capturing microcosms of the modern experience. A lot of people focus on “Idiocracy”, as it created a world where the stupid won. But, “Office Space”, “Silicon Valley” and “Idiocracy” all trade in the same stock. These realities work because they’re based in truth and the oddity that surrounds it.
The DVD comes with featurettes as the special features. The A/V Quality is strong enough for a recent release. The transfer stands out for what it is. The same goes for the Dolby 5.1 track. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to fans.
