Naw man. In Entourage they get it all. The girls, The cars, The roles, The two chicks at the same time, The fucking tequila company, they get it all. In Silicon Valley those spoils are dangled in front of them and then they "shoot themselves in the dick"

It's a formula sure, but it's very different, and way more entertaining in concept and delivery.

Monica is in charge of something Lori has been convinced will be successful. A bit convoluted though, yeah, but at least she has something to do now.

And just like that, Bachman is gone.

But you could tell for this entire series that his role was being diminished.

BTW- Ned Ryerson is the jewel of the show.

I figured that they would have had him somehow strike it rich and move to Hawaii or something with Jin Yang acquiring his house. Seems like a bit of a cop out to just know that for each successive season he's just in Tibet getting high on opium the whole time.

Well it gives him an out for the next 5 seasons but leaves it open for him to return once his comedy special flops(check), he runs out of Deadpool sequels(coming soon), and needs some steady income.

^ His interview with The Hollywood Reporter makes it seem like he isn't coming back.

Quote :
"I didn’t talk to Alec because I don’t like Alec, but I think Mike Judge and [co-executive producer] Clay Tarver are brilliant"


Alec Berg is the showrunner. The interview made it seem like Middleditch wanted TJ gone as well but he also complimented Middleditch so who knows. He loves him some Zach Woods though, but who doesn't.

They may not like each other but money speaks louder than petty rivalries. He may not be the main character of the show but he is the funniest and one of the most popular. They'll prob have him come back in the series finale.

"I don’t know how the f— I hoodwinked Hollywood into giving me a career in this. But I’m not sitting here saying, “I need more lines. I’m not funny enough.” I’m not Thomas Middleditch. "


Quote :
"A lot of people are writing really interesting stuff about like, “Well, what does happen now?” And I love that. I want to step aside. Thomas Middleditch has always wanted to be a star. He’s always wanted to be the star of the show. So I thought, really, it’s an ensemble show, and if I step aside, the ensemble will each have a little more room."


Quote :
"I think that HBO and Alec Berg [who he hates], specifically, kind of thought — and I guess apparently Thomas Middleditch — I guess they thought, "All right, maybe this is the end of the character. But like everything in the show, we’ll sort of solve this and then it’s back to normal." "


Quote :
" I think in some ways Thomas Middleditch is — we have a contrarian relationship, like a big brother-little brother relationship. And this is also an opportunity for me to be like, “Let me just step off, dude. Like, just do your f—ing thing. You’re amazing.” "

Yeah when I read the first couple stories about that interview they included the part where he said Middleditch was the funniest guy on the show so you think the interview is complimentary of him, but it's not.

I think some of it is kind of hard to get an accurate read on when just reading the text as opposed to if we were actually hearing him talk. Miller and Middleditch have worked together a ton, which would be kind of strange if they didn't really like eachother, but maybe it's a recent change of feelings

Eh, the big brother-little brother relationship seems like a good summary of it. They're both talented and respect each other, hell I bet they consider each other friends, but clearly they both want to be "the guy" and it's formed a bit of a rivalry. Basically turning them into frienemies.

good zach woods interview - http://www.thewrap.com/silicon-valley-zach-woods-tj-miller/

Thomas Middleditch interview - http://www.thewrap.com/silicon-valley-thomas-middleditch-tj-miller-exit/

Quote :
"“Lots of things could have been done differently if things were handled differently on the part of the people involved,” Middleditch told TheWrap. “It could have been a lot more ceremonious.”

The actor continued: “There’s been articles, ‘too big for the show,’ but that’s one way of putting it, that’s for sure.”"


Quote :
"Zach Woods, who plays the docile Jared on “Silicon Valley,” previously told TheWrap that Miller’s exit “wasn’t a great surprise.” Woods added, “I love T.J., and I love Erlich — I think that character is super funny. I’m excited to see what he’ll do coming up.”"


Quote :
"Co-showrunner Alec Berg told TheWrap that the finale was written in the way it was because producers “kind of had a sense that this might be the end of the road for him.”"





[Edited on June 28, 2017 at 3:30 PM. Reason : Yeah doesn't sound like trolling...and it seems there were issues with miller through the season]

If Berg did cell phone commercials, they wouldn't be as terribly unfunny as Middleditch's
