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!
