Sunday night’s “Silicon Valley” episode had plenty of silliness throughout, especially with the Russ character. We don’t know how the managed to introduce such a wonderful role in a short period of time, but they pulled it off! Russ is ultimately what happens when you combine 80% of all billionaires around age 40 and combine them with Ari Gold, and then add in a copious amount of caffeine.
In our latest “Silicon Valley” and More CarterMatt Podcast, we (being Matt Carter and Jason Prager) do spend a great deal of time going through some of the characters latest antics once he realizes that he has departed the three-comma club. What is an insanely rich man to do? Hopefully, we shall provide for you at least a few answers.
Also, we touch on a few other subjects to go along with this:
1. Whether or not Big Head’s vision of the future is a great one.
2. How we were relatively down on the Dinesh story, mostly because it feels fairly similar to what we have seen on the show a few times already.
3. If there is anything when it comes to EndFrame that will be remembered long after the fact.
This time around, we both share an opinion in that while this was a funny episode, we find it pretty darn hard for the show to touch the greatness that was established with the story that came before this one, in between the whole “let Blaine die” debate and all of the other craziness that was present there.
