I have to admit the idea of Jeffrey Tambor as a trans woman made me ill, but I watched the show anyway, and it was great, both the first and second seasons. They take a while to get started, and the characters are mostly horrible people, but the stories are touching and finally they do win you over. Only in Season 2 you get to hate them all over again. And then it all makes sense, etc.
BTW, Angelica Houston has a small but nice role. I learned a new acronym from her character: NATO == Not Attached To Outcome.
I thought I wouldn't like this because it's real close to home, even more than Halt and Catch Fire which I did not like (see below). But they nail it. All the crazy narcissism and cynical back-stabbing and money lust that makes up the tech industry, and it's funny in a Beavis and Butthead way.
Another one every says is great, but I never made it past John Goodman who seemed very fat and unhealthy and that's basically all I remember about it. I was expecting The Wire. Probably should try again. But maybe once is enough.
Everyone says this is a great show but I can't get into it.
I tried watching season 1, and it was both ridiculous and inaccurate.
People said try season 2, and I lost interest for the same reason.
My theory is that I actually lived that period of history in the computer industry. I know what happened. They are wrong about it. I imagine this is how lawyers must feel about Law & Order for example. I can't fit the real story and their bullshit story in the same brain. It just doesn't fit.
You may like it, but don't believe that's how it happened because it didn't happen that way.
