    1993:

    Beavis and Butt-Head

    Silly, ridiculous, but funny for its time.

    1997:

    King of the Hill

    [​IMG]




    1999:

    Office Space

    Still to this day one of the all-time greats.

    2006:

    Idiocracy

    A+ for concept, C- for delivery. Not really watchable. Flop.


    2009:

    Extract

    Even with Jason Bateman, Kristin Wiig, Mila Kunis and Ben Affleck... this flops too. No one has even heard of it.



    That's it, right? He's over? Like Tom Brady before he won his last Super Bowl, his career is basically a few early hits and then nothing...


    Except now with Silicon Valley, he has the best new comedy in recent memory.

    Now instead of his career being, "yeah, but what have you done lately?" He now has scoreboard forever.

    Fox tried to bury it. The film never had a chance. It's absolutely hilarious and frighteningly prescient.

    The second season just had its finale.

    But HBO Go should have it.

    I just started watching Silicon Valley a few weeks ago. I just finished the season 2 finale the other day. It's truely satire at its best, hilarious, and full of great characters that are well defined and drive the comedy. One of the funniest shows in the last 10-15 years. The scenes between Erhlich Bachman and Jian Yang, although few and far between, have me in tears.

    I'll have to check it out. However, saying that Beavis and Butthead was funny for its time doesn't ring true for me. I'm 35 and I still love that dopey shit.

    Love Silicon Valley, HBO has it rated M for mature audiences, I guess for all the rude shit Ehrlich says. But since they're already rated M might as well throw in some gratuitous nude broads.

    I think the actor who plays Galvin Belson should win an award

    He was also on "Big Love". He played a creepy, villainous, quasi-pedophile. Clearly, the guy is a very talented actor.

    That wouldn't fit in with their social anxiety they all have around women. Richard will fuck Monica in S3

    I don't remember him being a pedophile, just a homo.

    Great actor, btw.
