Thought it was a great opener. Love the Richard Monica relationship. That actor deserves an Oscar (Emmy I suppose) for the extreme awkwardness he is able to portrait.

Also they handled the Christopher Welch/Peter Gregory death really well. It was exactly the right amount of sweet/respectful and while still being funny. Which was Chris's mother/Wife's note to the show runners... make sure it's funny.

Late to the party with this (as I was with Archer) but I love this. I'm a bit of a geek, but the humour is spot on. Wryly observed satire, and stupid in equal measure. The characters are all just excellent.

Can't say i'm enjoying this as much as the first season. Lost it's sparkle and seems a bit directionless at the minute.

Yeah, the 'almost got rich' thing is getting quite old now... can't quite work out how these people working in Silicon Valley can be so gullible! It's also really missing Peter Gregory as well... and it doesn't help that his replacement isn't funny in the slightest either. Her 'humour' just seems too forced most of the time.

Remains as good as the first season for me.

And what is most frightening, I have a close friend that works high up in Amazon (in Seattle) & he is impressed each week at how accurate it is!

The SWOT analysis. I don't think I've ever laughed so much at a scene, reading all the notes on the board

The last two episodes has been the best it's ever been. Really funny scenes (Including the one above) But it's nice to see the CEO grow a pair at the end of the last episode

It is a fantastic series. I watch each one twice. Years since I done that with anything.

I can't believe I am posting these but the names at the conference were hilariously wrong.

It was only a matter of time before the online Porn industry got involved. Surprised it took this long!

Another great episode. I also loved Gavin's scene with his "failure = success" spin.

Erlich: Jian-Yang, what are you doing? This is Palo Alto. These people are lunatics about smoking here. We don't enjoy all the freedoms that you have in China.

Absolute genius.
