Watch Every Full Episode of Mike Judges Silicon Valley For Free
There isn’t a whole lot of need to talk about Silicon Valley, as it is the hottest and most celebrated show television right now. just two episodes into its second season and look at the number of awards it’s already piled on.
Let’s talk about the man who’s behind it and that man is Mike Judge — perhaps the most underrated writer, director and producer of all time.
He is also the man behind King of the Hilland Office Space. He also brought you such awesome films as Idiocracy and Extract, which were both awesome films that were well received by the critics but were sleepers at the box office. Both of these Mike Judge feature films had A-list cast members. I highly suggest you check out Idiocracy.
I love that movie so much I actually want up getting a Brawndo tattoo, which I was able to show to the man himself just a few years ago when I ran into at a bar.
When he saw the tattoo he loved it and thought I was just going to be some idiot showing him a Beavis & Butthead are King of the Hill tattoo, he was so impressed with it he went to take his iPhone out to take a picture of it and just as he went to snap the picture his iPhone died, so he asked if he could borrow my iPhone and texted the picture to himself. We wound up “bro-ing down” and wound up at some crappy strip club in Hollywood.
It’s movies like Idiocracy and Extract the eye believe someday will really become cult classics because they are just too good to have flown under the radar all of these years. As I understand it, the deal with Idiocracy was it was Mike Judge’s first movie after Office Space and the studios granted him “total artistic freedom”. When he delivered the final version of the film featuring companies that the studios have been taking large sums of cash in the form of product placement, they begrudgingly released the film to the minimum amount of screens and with the smallest advertising budget allowed in the contract. Mike Judge’s punk rock as movie directors go in Hollywood and easily the best one out today. It is good to see him finally getting respect for something more than Beavis and Butthead. Silicon Valley may make enough new fans that I can go back and get caught up in all the awesome films they might’ve missed.
Watch Every Episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm for Free
aFor whatever reason I never caught on to Curb Your Enthusiasm until somewhere around a fifth season. in my opinion, Curb Your Enthusiasm is the best written show on television pound-for-pound. For those who are not familiar the main character is played by Larry David who is playing himself and is also the original creator of Seinfeld. A lot of the scenes are improvised according to Larry David. After you have written and read to the benefits of writing a show so commercially successful as Seinfeld it pretty much gives you a license to do whatever you want when you get older — and I is exactly what Larry David did with Curb Your Enthusiasm.
If you are like me you might have missed a lot of the earlier seasons if you didn’t catch on to the subtle Hebrew trademark humor stylings which made the show a humongous hit by the time it reached season eight and the rumor is that Larry David will not be doing any more seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
My favorite season was season seven if for nothing else the “Palestinian Chicken” / “Social Assassin” episode all by itself ( see our own list of some of the top quotes from this episode here) . I’m also a huge fan of the “Black Swan” episode from season six. The show even went far enough to make me have some sort of appreciation for Roseanne Barrin the classic “lesbian” episode. The jokes in curb your enthusiasm go flying at such a fast pace you really have to pay attention to the show as one joke almost certainly references another in almost every case, that’s how brilliant the writing is on the show. While this type of humor might not be everyone’s cup of tea it is the best piece of HBO original programming that they’ve ever invested their hard-earned dollars into.
Arguably Chris Rock’s best standup comedy specialall time, not to mention his best-selling. This premium stand up special that you can watch for free on the media cube cruised millions and catapulted Chris rock into a full-fledged superstar. This movie has so many classic bits in it it’s almost hard for me to name them all, but I’ll try to highlight a few.
For some this was Chris Rock at the pinnacle of his comedy career. I know he went on to do a lot of really funny stuff after their, but this one still remains my favorite.
