This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cult favorite comedy Office Space. The movie bombed spectacularly at the box office with just under $11 million made in its entire domestic run.

Last May, we learned that comedian T.J. Miller would not be returning for the fifth season of Mike Judge‘s HBO comedy series Silicon Valley. About a month later, there was an extended discussion with Miller about why he left the show and how the tech world comedy series would continue without his character, the bombastic, obnoxious Erlich Bachman. However, it sounds like there may have been more going on behind the scenes that resulted in the supposedly mutual decision for Miller to leave the series.
In a new feature on the fifth season of Silicon Valley, coming to HBO later this month, Mike Judge opened up about what happened with T.J. Miller that resulted in him leaving the show. His departure didn’t have anything to do with the sexual assault allegation levied against him since the announcement about Miller leaving the show came months before that surfaced. Instead, it was Miller’s behavior on set and his perceived propensity to partake in certain vices that made it difficult and sometimes even impossible to work with him. And when you have a cast and crew relying on you to be ready to work, that just doesn’t fly. Read More »

After all these seasons, he’s probably been nervous for good reason. A lot goes wrong for Richard on this show. Sometimes conflicts are quickly wrapped up, maybe a little too quickly sometimes, but each episode seems to provide him with a whole mess of problems.
If the Silicon Valley season four teaser is any indication, he still has plenty of problems to solve.
