    Thought this episode was brilliant. I'll be disappointed if there's not atleast one article in salon or variety etc calling the show racist now for the Dinesh bomb scene.

    I loved how they had Jin Yang struggle with Elrich's bag and then yet he launched it at the airport.

    I don't know why so many people are complaining about this season. I'm still loving it. People rage so hard about Richard. Jesus just enjoy the comedy. The only thing I'm bored of is the formula. Jared yelling at Richard was hilarious. Jared is the best.

    Lol I actually didn't even pick up on the suicide bomber joke until reading the last few posts. Makes it that much funnier. Also the Danesh actor is a sjw so people shouldn't be writing articles about how the show is racist now, because he accepted the line and delivered it fantastically, so it must not be racist haha.

    I don't think so. This episode made it pretty clear that Richard isn't supposed to be likable at all.

    Veep's writers are brilliant. I like Valley more as a whole but Veep's jokes are too good.

    Richard's an idiot.

    Watched a couple old episodes, forgot how good Peter was. Also hadn't realized Milana Vayntrub is Gilfoyle's chick.

    In that case they're doing a great job, because Richard has turned from plucky-yet-quirky underdog to insufferable cunt.

    The show is still great, though!

    The show makes you think it was something pied piper put into the Ap, but it was likely something Hooli did. They love shitting on Hooli.

    probably, or its something Richard did which will be resolved in the first episode of the next season. so if they wrote Erhrlic out of the show by sending him to Tibet to be a monk, does that mean Gavin is gone too?

    I like that this episode included plausible tech plots.

    Samsung Galaxy Notes were blowing up recently if too many apps were open taking processing power due to some faulty battery shit:

    Here’s why the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 batteries caught fire and exploded | TechRadar

    The pineapple caper reminded me of MiTM shit you hear about at DefCon:

    DEFCON: BtleJuice MitM Hacks Bluetooth (and belittles Bluetooth Padlock security) - InternetNews.

    Elrich's depature appears forced/rushed. He definitely demanded more money and didn't get it.

    I'm sure Gavin will leave Tibet because of Erlich at some point. I wonder if they get TJ to cameo next season, showing him teaching the monks about vaping and pesca-pescatarianism.

    No matter who did It, Pied Piper just lost all their free users.

    I think they ended up having to rewrite a lot of this season due to Erlichs departure which lenses itself to the lack of quality

    Well, TJ's THR interview had him saying he wanted to do different stuff
    T.J. Miller Breaks Silence on Leaving 'Silicon Valley'

    but then he did an interview on Larry King a few days ago and it seemed to reinforce the idea he wants to do something new and unstable and probably spend more time with his wife (they live in NYC, show is shot in CA)



    this is his wife



    guess we won't really know for a year or two. His recent comedy special was really bad.

    Lol did you honestly expect the actor to come out and say "yeah I wanted more money so now I'm quitting and ruining the show"?

    Jin yang throwing the luggage was one of the best parts of the season

    Yeah, such a good buildup to it, with him struggling with it a couple of times earlier.

    i think he was fucking up and they just wanted to get rid of him. maybe they werent willing to create another charlie sheen situation and told him get your shit straightened out or we arent giving you the money you want. he decided to leave which might have threw a monkey wrench in the story arch and so they cobbled together a spur of a moment exit.
