I really like this show but i think it fails every time it tries to be serious. They should do more scenes like the wanking one.

I've seen the first episode and it was OK. Is it worth watching? It's getting better?
It's a little uneven at first, but it improves a fair bit during the season. The season is only 8 half-hour episodes, so it isn't a huge commitment.

The jack-off equation scene is easily the funniest scene I've ever seen on television. I was laughing so hard I was in tears.
Agreed. I knew it was going to be his "House" moment, but dear god it was hilarious.. compounded with the fact that they were up all night continuing to work on it.. goddamn.

Great finale. I hope we get more goodies next season.

Emotional tribute at the end. It was very touching. :(

Great finale.

I didn't realize that the guy who played Peter had passed away, though, I haven't really followed any media for the show. It's sad, he did a great job with the character.

Yeah it really Is a loss. He got the role of a lifetime there. He was great on Rubicon too.

Wouldn't it be a mistake to explain how the new compression was done? Couldn't Hooli just copy it again?

Now I don't know nothin 'bout nothin, but I imagine they'd have to look at the actual code to figure it out.

the whole scene in the hotel is amazing but the funniest part is when they cut back and someone says "he's been in there for 2 hours" and you realise everyone else spent that time working on the crowd jerking problem and the whiteboards are filled with diagrams of dicks.

Awesome episode. OMG the jerk scene had me dying

Heres the scene btw
http://youtu.be/4zYWyXwKrHg

"Even if your jerking two at a time theres what 800 guys in that room so thats 400 times whatever the mean jerk time is"

"The what?"

"The mean jerk time. It doesn't matter, but hypothetically, time is equal to 400 total jerks at a 2 dick rate."

"...Unless Erlick jerks off 4 guys at a time, then we can cut that in half."


I love happy endings. Can't wait for next season.
All I want next season is more Big Head.
Guys enough with the dick jokes :p

I feel like I missed something. He rewrites the code so it can compress everything. I got confused at the end where he says it compressed the whole file, and not just half of it. Were they impressed because uses less resources than before?

Conventional compression would have made it double the size, with his new method it allows for it to be half of what was the standard.

They mention earlier in the episode that they were having issues with 3D video files, so when it turned out that a 3D file was chosen for compression they panicked because they'd never gotten it to work with those before. After the compression hung up for a few seconds and completed they figured they'd just failed again, but it turns out it worked even better than they thought it would.

Oh, so half of what the standard compression is, got it.

Yeah I understood that, found it pretty funny. "oh no, a 3D file!"

I really hope Mean Jerk Time becomes a rating for something. When is this game coming out? Well the MJT would be a year and the T2O should be 3rd quarter next year.

Similar to the reddit banana for scale meme.

And I was a fan before but goddamn I am going to checkout anything Mike Judge is a part of in the future.

It is funny because I have never enjoyed Mike Judge animated shows, but everything the man does live action is amazing for me.

Laughed pretty hard when it cut back to the dick diagram two hours later.
Great season 1.

I was calling the ending to be them open-sourcing it but it took a different turn.

Great season finale, like everyone else the whiteboard scene had me and my fiancee rolling. Really looking forward to the second season, especially if it keeps up the constant quality that S1 had!

The relationship between Richard and Monica is so expected and so forced and really lame. But I guess they had to force it in the final episode in case there wasn't a season 2.

First season was meh but okay and some parts were funny. Richard hurts the show more than he helps it, but the supporting characters are good, I just don't know if a series can be completely built around someone who has no personality in his character.

Dick equation was funny

You brought piss to a shit fight is still the best line

"Guys would girth have an effect on the equation?"

All the guys start mimicking the jerk off motion while opening and closing their hands to accommodate different thicknesses. Hahahaha

And my friends were all working on a formulae manipulating..... data. Hahaha. Dinesh's face was priceless at that moment.

Great show.

I thought each episode was great - but all the stroking stuff was amazing. I was nearly in tears when they got to girth.

Yeah this is one of the only things that has really rubbed me the wrong way in this show. It's a bummer that every comedy series these days seems to have to force a relationship into it, seemingly ever since the office did it.

But even if this was the only season they would still be back where they were before, not dating because they work together. I think the renewal came after the episode was filmed.

Best dick joke ever.

I also need a gif of Erlich busting through the door in the background.

Really enjoyed this show. Looking forward to next season.

Actually it was supposed to be even more impressive than that, since the 2.89 score was a new record made just the day before, made with his old code, and his new code shattered it. Richard expected it to be double the size and that was already supposed to be impressive.

Hopefully that stupid interaction between the two never come to fruition in season two. A relationship between her and Shaggy man would be okay with me. I rather have Richard go after the chick who
accused him of stalking.

I really hate it when shows portray the ugly successful guy with a hot girlfriend who would have not even looked at him if there were no dollar signs. The writers of this show need to cut that crap before the show is ruined.

except that was not what was happening in the slightest. she asked him out after she thought his company was about to become a failure.

which is even more stupid because i dunno what the hell she saw in him. he can't even look her in the eye for more than a second and also just seems rude. any of the other guys would have had more success pulling her.
