Sean Parker? Marc Cuban? Chris Sacca? Who is “Silicon Valley”‘s Russ Hanneman, really?

Last Sunday’s episode of Silicon Valley, “Bad Money,” was probably the best of the entire season. And it was all thanks to the addition of douche ex machina Russ Hanneman, a foul-mouthed, open-shirted, orange-McLaren driving asshole whose douchiness is matched only by his cluelessness.

“It’s sexist, but it’s about friendship”: Episode 2 of “Silicon Valley” Season 2, reviewed

Like last year, I’m reviewing every episode of Silicon Valley, Season 2. Read last week’s recap here. There’s one gag from last night’s Silicon Valley everyone will be talking about this week — and by “everyone” I mean a handful of wantrapreneurs and people like me who are paid to write about the show. That gag is aptly named, “Bro.” Bro is [...]

“Silicon Valley” kicks off season 2, proving once again it’s the most underachieving show on television
