Watch the First Episode of Mike Judge’s New HBO Comedy SILICON VALLEY Online Now

Though last night’s big HBO premiere was the solid season four opener for Game of Thrones, the episode was followed by two other excellent debuts: the series premiere of Silicon Valley and the season three premiere of the fantastic Veep.  The former comes from creator Mike Judge (Office Space), and fresh off the highly positive response to the pilot, HBO has now made the full episode available online for free.  The comedy is Judge’s take on the modern tech world, revolving around a computer programmer who tries to build a Silicon Valley start-up with his roommates.  Judge’s encapsulation of the ego-fueled and hypocritical nature of today’s tech world is spot-on and hilarious, showing shades of his excellent 2006 satirical feature Idiocracy, and the ensemble cast is on-point and works extremely well together.  I’m definitely looking forward to the rest of the season.

Hit the jump to watch the full, half-hour pilot for Silicon Valley and click here to read Allison’s full recap.  The show airs on HBO Sundays at 10pm ET, directly after Game of Thrones.
