Watch the Great New Trailer for HBO's Silicon Valley (VIDEO)

By Tim Surette

Finally, TV's funniest show about the tech revolution in Northern California won't be Bravo's unintentionally hilarious reality show Start Ups: Silicon Valley! Ladies and gentlemen, that title will soon belong to HBO's upcoming series Silicon Valley, a new sitcom that premieres Sunday, April 6. Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-head, Office Space) created the series, which centers on six computer programmers who try to cash in on the tech boom, and the official trailer has already made me an early adopter (tech biz joke). 

Okay I'll say it: This will be the best new comedy of the season. It's got a great cast, which includes Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller (The Goodwin Games), Zach Woods (The Office), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks, Party Down), and Kumail Nanjiani (Burning Love, Portlandia, Twitter). It has Andy Daly guest-starring as a doctor. It has Mike Judge returning to Office Space-ish environs. It has gangster rap. And it has kids cursing. I'm in!

    Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Who was that kid? He looked very familiar.

    I'm so in!

    This could be fun. I'm down with anything that gives Kumail Nanjiani more screen time. His largely deadpan delivery is always gold to me.

    He was easily the best thing about Franklin & Bash.

    the cast is just killer! I laugh just looking at their pic!

    Thomas Middleditch (Someone Marry Barry)

    incredible cast, Martin Starr excluded. only being familiar with him from the office leaves a bad taste in my mouth. that show had a way of making you absolutely hate characters, Gabe being one of them. hopefully his character here is dissimilar enough for me to give him a chance.

    Can't wait. Love the cast.

    So it's Betas with a better cast?

  • EsmeBuffay Feb 25, 2014

    Looks great, I like the whole cast (except for Gabe, I can do without Gabe) and I'm happy they have their own show now instead of just guest spots and small roles in movies. Thomas Middleditch and T.J. Miller in particular.

    I don't know what to think. On the one hand the trailer's funny, I like the cast, I like Mike Judge and based on that minute and a half it actually could be the best new comedy of the season. On the other hand though, Tim Surette's really positive about it, that scares and confuses me. Did someone switch up his meds?

    Hmm, will it be funny as Office Space?
