DVD Review - Silicon Valley: The Complete Third Season

HBO; TV-MA, Approx. 300 minutes; $24.98; Amazon
Available today on DVD, as well as Blu-ray, from HBO Home Entertainment is Silicon Valley: The Complete Third Season, featuring 10 episodes on a 2-disc set. There are no special features except for deleted scenes. It comes with a free Digital HD code.

Created by Mike Judge, John A ltschuler, and Dave Krinsky, the series stars Thomas Middleditch, T. J. Miller, Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Amanda Crew, Zach Woods, Matt Ross, and Suzanne Cryer. Season three of the series received 11 Emmy® nominations including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Thomas Middleditch).

Season Three picks up shortly after events of season two finale, where the founder of Pied Piper, Richard (played by Middleditch) was removed as CEO of his own company by the now Raviga-run board. Jack Barker (played by Stephen Tobolowsky) is quickly hired as new CEO and his way of running things doesn't go well with Richard and the rest of his team - Erlich (T.J. Miller), Jared (Zach Woods), Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and Gilfoyle (Martin Starr).

Barker wants the company to release a business-platform box, but Richard and the team would rather release a consumer-facing platform. While Pied Piper team act like they will compromise and build the box, they're actually planning on going with the original plan and continue with their platform.

Final Thoughts: Silicon Valley was one of those series that never really appealed to me at first glance. However, I did become a fan after reviewing the season two on DVD last year; which lead to me binge watching the entire first season on ON DEMAND a few days before season three debuted on HBO last spring.

The third season arrived on DVD earlier this week and I was more than excited to review it. The 10 episodes are on 2-discs (5 episodes per disc).  The picture quality and sound on all the episodes are topnotch. The only disappointing thing I found with the set is the lack of special features or extras. There are no commentaries, bloopers, or behind-scenes features, however, there are a few deleted scenes.

Overall, I enjoyed watching (well, rewatching) Silicon Valley: The Complete Third Season. It's a hilariously smart, laugh out loud series that's worth buying on DVD.
