Silicon Valley (HBO) -- Season 3 Thread -- Premieres 4/24/16




After being unceremoniously fired, an angry Richard faces a tough decision: accept the diminished role of CTO, or leave Pied Piper for good. Erlich takes a shine to Jack Barker, Laurie's new choice of CEO, while Dinesh and Gilfoyle weigh their options in Richard's absence. At Hooli, Gavin tries to improve his image by admitting failure, and Big Head gets wind of major changes.

Written by Dan O'Keefe; directed by Mike Judge.

10 episode 3rd season

Renewed for a 4th season last week

I loved the Hooli scenes

This was a really strong episode, I thought. Erlich just steals every scene he's in, and I love it.

Good start, but the one gripe I had was Hendricks going to that new company with the mustaches and not knowing a single thing before on what the company was about. It was amusing, and he realized he made a mistake when they did that funny demo on him, but he should have known before hand.

And I want to be like Big Head, not do anything in a company like Hooli, get bumped to an executive position, then laid off and received a $20 mil severance package.

Except that they told him the mustache thing was a new/secret project. He was interested in updating their video platform, but they brushed that aside.

Ah, okay. I missed that part. That makes it a bit more sense. I loved it when he was dialing his phone and the mustache was trying to catch up to his face.

This continues to be one of the funnier shows on TV. It really benefits from its strong cast.

Solid 1st episode. I loved Gavin calling that big press conference and then doing the fake out and announcing that he was firing that entire department.

I thought season two was uneven and lost some of the spirit from season one. It's not a huge role but the autistic woman CEO character bothers me. I was hoping she'd get dumped from the show.

Yes! I was cracking up so hard at that whole scene, especially when I saw it was that robot deer as soon as they hit it with the car.

I noticed that too. He was never really fat, but he seems to have lost a lot of facial fat.

Funny episode.

Love how Big Head keeps stumbling his way to some sort of success. 20 mill... time to retire. Why would he even be on the show any more?

Gavin's speech was hilarious. What a prick.

Yeah, with $20mil, I could see the guys talking Bighead into funding a new venture for them.

Good premiere this week. I'll echo a couple sentiments already stated - Gavin's press conference was pretty funny. Such a slime ball. Loved Elrich and Barker's introduction as highlighted in one of the clips above.

No doubt, that's probably where they're going with it. But to be true to Big Heads nature - I would think he'd just retire. He can still help his friends out with funding, but it would be weird for him to work at PP when he's loaded and doesn't need the job. He's shown numerous times that he has absolutely no ambition, is lazy and is of average intelligence at best - so he wouldn't even do it as a hobby.

They're obviously going to keep him around though... and I'm glad because his situations are hilarious.

Exactly - that's why they'd "talk him into it", as he'll probably do it just to hang out with them and be friends again.

He's probably going to stumble into more and more fortuitous situations throughout the series, and do nothing else.

I suppose he'll end up buying a seat on the Pied Piper board later in the season, balancing it out and reinstating Richard as CEO.

Wasn't prepared for horse porn.

Loved Erlich and Jian
