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?

Loved it, watched the whole series at least twice. I did get sick of the rinse cycle repeat of "they fuck up, Pied Piper is doomed, oh wait, something saves the day!" But I loved the side characters like the lawyers, Laurie, Gavin, and Peter, and I laughed hard so many times. Having worked as a tech writer for years, this rang true to my experience.

I didn't realize it until someone else said it, but every season finale is a race against time. And the series finale is the ultimate race against time because they're literally saving the world at the very last minute They definitely ended at the right time because that blueprint was pushing the limits of believability a little more every time they did it.

Haha, I forgot about Ron LaFlame, but I loved that character, too. He's a good example of giving you just enough of a side character so you never get sick of them.
