There's nothing particularly GC about this show. In fact, one of the few female stars called out the "boys club" atmosphere on the set. But I still enjoyed the show. Feel free to talk about that. Can you still enjoy a show that is very male-oriented? How much does behind the scenes drama affect your appreciation of a show?

I am not part of Silicon Valley, or the tech world, but I still found the show very funny. I think Thomas Middleditch, although he's proven himself to be a terrible person in real life, was very funny as Richard and his physical comedy was top-notch. I enjoyed watching Pied Piper grow, fail, grow and fail again. I think the show actually had the perfect run. It began with them as the underdogs and culminated in a very believable and satisfying way.

Did anyone else like this show?

I loved it too. Watched it twice. I think I loved watching men like that suffer. I thought all the female characters were great.

That's a good point. There is something cathartic about watching men get their comeuppance. And I agree that even though there were only a few female characters, the ones that were there were well-written. The women were definitely some of the more grounded characters.
