Mike Judge has made a career of poignantly lampooning teenagers with Beevis and Butthead, Texans with King of the Hill, and cubicle slaves with Office Space. With Silicon Valley, the former programmer's target is the awkward, ambitious, innovators of Apple, Microsoft, and Google, along with all the new tech pervading our lives. The journey for fictional startup Pied Piper to turn its super algorithm into a marketable product has been full of twists, turns, and plenty of backstabbing. And as much as you want to hate the flawed characters, you have to wonder if these socially inept programmers are merely products of their environment. The scary thing is how real and accurate tech insiders consider it.
