HBO has the first episode up on YouTube. I actually really like this show so far, probably because I’ve lived all over the bay area for so long and have heard (and seen) so much of the tech/start-up culture. TJ Miller is especially hilarious (that smug look after he looks up where Campbell soup is, the way he slobbers down ramen noodles), but I really want to see more of Martin Starr aka my favorite Freaks and Geeks character aka Bill Haverchuck <3
Also this scene at 16 minutes in:
"It’s weird. They always travel in groups of 5. These programmers, there’s always a tall skinny white guy, short skinny Asian guy, fat guy with a ponytail, some guy with crazy facial hair, and then an East Indian guy. It’s like they trade guys until they all have the right group."
"You clearly have a great understanding of humanity."
So adorable!!! I was really REALLY hoping to see a showdown between these two for the gold/silver at the Sochi Olympics. How great would it have been to see them - same age, lifelong rivals, both retiring - at the top for their last competition, rather than the Russian controversy that we got instead. I love Queen Yuna, but I also have so many feels for Mao :(
