Premium Satellite TV
In the early days of premium television, HBO began using the slong “It’s not TV. It’s HBO.” as a way to set the channel apart from the rest of the programming schedule. Although the channel started as a place to watch the latest box office smashes before they reached home video, it didn’t take HBO long to figure out that original programming would give the channel staying power. Since then, HBO has churned out critically-acclaimed hits such as The Wire and Game of Thrones alongside well-received comedies such as Curb Your Enthusiam and Veep. Recently, though, one HBO show has taken the reigns as the funniest show on television, and if you haven’t seen Silicon Valley yet, you’re definitely missing out.
The Funniest Show on HBO
Set in a fictionalized version of Palo Alto, CA, Silicon Valley follows the trials and tribulations of Richard Hendricks (played by Thomas Middleditch) as he attempts to get his own start up company, Pied Piper, off the ground. Along with his misfit colleagues Gilfoyle (Martin Starr), Jared (Zach Woods), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani), as well as the haphazard guidance of Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller in his best role yet), the group experiences laugh-a-minute failures and unexpected successes. The series will wrap its third season for HBO on June 26th.
