Tonight was HBO’s Silicon Valley Season 4’s finale. For this review, I decided not to delve too deeply into every episode but provide an overall look at the season as a whole. This is one of the few actual reviews for Silicon Valley I’m doing, although I hope sometime in the future, I’m able to do more.
Sometimes at night when you’re wide awake and trying to put yourself to sleep, you get really odd questions that pop in your head, which are influenced by various youtube videos you might watch in passing time to ease your insomnia. For myself, I sometimes might toss in a video about Game of Thrones such as a past Comic Con. One thing I noticed about most Comic Con type of videos is that the vast majority of the audience ask the worst and most banal questions to the cast. So I decided to ask a hypothetical question on this blog that I found more focused and interesting: which Game of Thrones main cast characters would do well if they were tossed into a Silicon Valley TV show-like setting?
My coworkers got me into the Silicon Valley TV series a few months ago and it was a natural pairing. As someone working in the tech industry and a pretty big fan of Mike Judge’s work, I felt that this was a series definitely worth catching (of course, once the current Game of Thrones season completed). I haven’t done any reviews thus far of the episodes but I did want to delve into the Nelson “Big Head” Bighetti character since he reminds me of myself more than the rest of the main cast.
