Season two of Silicon Valley did not disappoint. The episode where Pied Piper (minor spoiler alert) live-streamed somebody trapped at the bottom of a ravine? Wonderful. The season two finale ended things on a high note with a surprisingly suspenseful final episode. What’s changed for Pied Piper since season two? Based on the Silicon Valley season three teaser, not much.

If you celebrate the entire Mike Judge catalog like we do, you’re going to want to watch this latest video from the Funny or Die team. They got Michael Bolton – the real Michael Bolton – to reenact scenes from Judge’s comedy Office Space. Of course, in that movie, actor David Herman played a character named “Michael Bolton,” which set the stage for numerous jokes about his name. Many of those you can see here, with the real Bolton awkwardly digitally inserted into the film.
It’s a short, super funny video, mostly because the Office Space scenes are still so great. Check out the Michael Bolton Office Space video below. Read More »

HBO subscriptions are expensive, and not all of us have Facebook or Google money. But as long as you’ve got an Internet connection, you can check out the full first episode of HBO’s Silicon Valley for free.
Created by Mike Judge, the half-hour comedy centers around a group of Bay Area techies who want to hit the big time — and then, somewhat unexpectedly, actually do so. Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr, and Josh Brener star. HBO has now put the entire premiere episode online, and you can watch it after the jump.

The fact that The Walking Dead is coming back next week is, without a doubt, exciting. It’s not as exciting, though, when you realize that means this Sunday is the fourth season finale of Breaking Bad.
Just when you thought AMC’s award-winning show couldn’t get any better, show runner Vince Gilligan delivers a season that has pretty much seen our two main characters, Walt and Jesse, almost on totally different shows, each going through their own personal hell as things slowly spiral out of control. Star Bryan Cranston was on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast Thursday and dropped some insane teases about Sunday’s finale plus, Hitfix got their hands on the first minute of the episode. We’ve got all of that after the break.
But if millionaire meth magicians with their lives on the line isn’t your thing, you should still click below the jump. That’s where you can see a hilarious trailer for the return of everyone’s favorite MTV cartoon Beavis and Butthead from the mind of Mike Judge. Read More »
Once you think about it, the idea of Mike Judge’s comedy Office Space reimagined as a musical really isn’t that off base. The film is filled with awesome musical interludes that could easily transformed into big production numbers. There’s Michael Bolton rapping in his car, the “Damn, It Feels Good To Be a Gangster” montage, the celebratory dance party back at Peter’s and of course “Take This Job and Shove It.” Then there a slew of characters whose delivery or catch phrases are begging, and probably have been, remixed all to hell. Lumburgh’s “Yeaaah,” Drew’s “Oh Face,” or the “Just a moment” receptionist all come to mind. But then there’s Milton. Sweet, lovable, oh so violent Milton. How would he fit into an Office Space Musical? Well, throw on some flair and don’t get a case of the Monday’s because we’re gonna have to ask you to find out after the break. Read More »
