HBO's "Silicon Valley" - I'm A Sucker For Shows That Dig Deep Into Work Cultures...

I don't get a chance to watch a lot of TV, but here's one upcoming series I'm excited about - HBO's "Silicon Valley", which debuts this Sunday on April 6th after Game of Thrones.

Take a look at the trailers and let's talk after the jump (email subscribers click through for the video):

 It seems understated, but what I love what it is underscoring in the margins:

-The natural inclination in the Valley to think you can get rich off of one idea.

-The fact that they're mocking the creative genuis of Steve Jobs, when his orginal partner might have been the brains, which the nerds understand.

-The reality that people have to make career choices which they know they may come to regret, even in the valley.

At the end of the day, I'm a sucker for the show that digs as deep into the culture of work as it does within individual characters.  Games of Thrones is nice, but I'm really looking forward to the real world connection of "Silicon Valley".  

HIt me up if you watch it on Sunday with what you thought about it...
