It’s October, and October is horror month, but it’s already the 9th and all I’ve seen is Annabelle. Not an auspicious start. I do have a few things in the works for the rest of the month that ought to redeem it a little. The first is tonight’s Cinefamily double feature presentation of 2009’s Norweigan Nazi-Zombie film, Dead Snow, and it’s brand new sequel, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead.
212 – Silicon Valley, Season One
July was apparently a month of making up for my truant sitcom-watching behavior. Earlier in the month I caught up on Playing House, and now – almost four months after reviewing the pilot – I’ve finally finished the first season of Mike Judge’s new HBO series, Silicon Valley.
097 – Silicon Valley, “Minimum Viable Product”
Silicon Valley is set up to be amazing before the first episode even starts. The talent pool is unreal. Not only does the cast include some of the funniest comedians working today, but it is created by Mike Judge, the brilliant writer behind Office Space, King of the Hill, and Idiocracy. The series follows a group of Northern Californian computer entrepreneurs as they attempt to strike it rich à la Google, Apple, Facebook, and every app you’ve ever heard of (and some you haven’t).
