SILICON VALLEY: SEASON 4
The Pied Piper team’s ups and downs
1 DESPERATE DINESH
Mike Judge’s HBO sitcom saw some of its supporting cast rise in Season 4. After Kumail Nanjiani’s Dinesh falls for a hacker, Mia (Phoebe Neidhardt), he panics about server-based retribution should they ever break up... so nobly grasses her up to the FBI in episode five.
2 GARAGE ROCKS
Episode five has Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and his Pied Piper team explore a partnership with rival Gavin Belson (Matt Ross). The opening teaser scene shows Belson give the lads a tour of his childhood garage, with the hilarious big reveal: it’s contained within a much larger garage, filled with billionaire boys’ toys.
3 BACHMAN OVERDRIVE
T.J. Miller’s pothead Erlich Bachman leaves in a blaze. Not necessarily of glory, but certainly the giggles, as he descends into an opium haze in a Tibetan retreat. After four seasons, Miller’s star had risen, while Bachman had become peripheral; probably the best decision all round.
