We can’t tell you how much we love this show. Okay, we can. WE LOVE IT. From the mind that brought us Office Space, comes the comedy that both explains and mocks the tech boom of the San Francisco Bay Area. Everything from TechCrunch Disrupt, VC funding, self-driving cars and computer engineers — Silicon Valley is funny for those who get code-jokes and those who don’t.
Last Week Tonight
As John Stewart slowly departs from his exhaled mantle of satirical daily comedy show, and Stephen Colbert transitions to late night, we thankfully have John Oliver to deliver weekly bouts of wit and opinion that is more poignantly laid out than other cable attempts. Here is one Brit that we don’t mind hearing from when it comes to American politics and culture.
Some of the best news reporting out there today, VICE covers (magazine-style) two or three stories a week. Covering topics like socio-economic turmoil, global warming, political uprising, and cultural taboos, it is a program for those who don’t mind finding out the state of affairs in our world. It’s a great timestamp of our era and worth archiving for future generations wondering what was happening in 2015.

This family dramedy centers around a father’s death, wherein the deceased’s 4 grown children must come home for the week and deal with their outlandish mother.

This 2012 documentary about the legendary band, the Rolling Stones, depicts the chronological evolution of the band through archive footage and more recent off-camera commentary by Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, Charlie Watts and Keith Richards.

If you’ve ever lived in a small town, there’s a lot of emotional familiarity with this miniseries.
