There's a quick line toward the end of S2 that they had to let all the newly hired coders go while juggling the financial stuff. Even though she was the only named one (and I think the other gaggle of programmers was shown exactly once), she was on the chopping block.

Didn't they just up and leave when it became apparent that they couldn't afford their wages?

So glad this show is back. Great episode.

-The updated website is hilarious. Richard's bio is completely empty.
-Can someone post an animated .GIF of the theme song, and all the other versions for reference too?
-Really going to have to track down a spotify/youtube playlist of this shows soundtrack. It's badass.

This show is so great. I still stand by my opinion that it is not in fact a parody at all, and is actually a documentary playing out with people who just look like some actors.

The music in this show (and anything Mike Judge has done) is always great. Made me need RTJ 3 more than I thought I needed it.

It is called "falling upward". It happens a lot in upper management in my experience. If you have been somewhere long enough and/or it is too costly in either money/PR/what have you they will keep falling upward until they are quietly let go without a fuss. I always thought it was imagined until I saw it first hand a couple of times.

At first she looked like she was gonna be someone who could go toe-to-toe with Bachman, Dinesh, and Gilfoyle in banter. But I guess she was just a way for Mike Judge to go, "Hey, I got a prominent woman character like y'all wanted," then dump her unceremoniously when the time came. In other words, he was trolling people. Both things are admirable.

I claim I was poor, but it turns I had a single mother who could actually work a job so I don't know what it really means to be poor.


Considering each season is so short and the main cast is so large I'd bet the problem is just not enough time/room for more characters that aren't critical to the main storyline. I'm surprised the bighead stuff is still so prominent, so I assume it will have some bigger plot impact this season (or next?)

This is Bighead we're talking about. He'll blow every dollar of that twenty million on a potato gun that can send a potato into low earth orbit.

...then someone will suggest how to use it as a micro-satellite launcher or ASAT weapon and he'll join the three comma club.

I know, he's incompetent, but the only reason he's in the show is because he was buddies with the gang before they left, and he didn't have the gonads to follow suit. Now that he's contractually cut off from his rooftop Hooli buddies, I could definitely see him crawling back to the Pied Piper boys with his tail between his legs and a wad of cash.

Like, seriously. It's Chekhov's Severance Pay.

IN DEBUT, I SPEW!!!

If they want to continue the BigHead story in the direction that tracks Silicon Valley most accurately, he'll probably be hired by a VC and put in charge of a billion dollar investment fund. Either that or someone will buy his next lovely app for $100M, but that would require that he do actual work first, which ain't happening.

Alternatively, he could invest it all in PP and end up making more than the rest of the guys combined if it succeeds.

There's no way they're going to take PP public just yet, and none of the board would allow him to buy his way in as it'd dilute their eventual profits. 20 million to everyone but Monica, Bachmann, and Richard is pocket change.

Also remember that Hooli just laid off the entire Nucleus staff *without* no-competes - they're either going to end up with Pied Piper, or Bighead feels bad for them all and starts his own company full of Nucleus rejects

When they showed the scene with the two brogrammers in the Previously On clips, I instantly became convinced they'd end up working for Richard.

A Mary Sue is a perfect character written into a piece of fiction to represent the author. Lt. BasementDweller being the unimpeachable hero in a Star Trek fanfic is a Mary Sue.

She is just an underdeveloped female character.

And I loving died at Bighead's reason for needing to think about taking 20 million dollars. He'd give up 20 mil just to hang out all day on a roof with other vesting nerds. Hoping he winds up at Pied Piper.

I wouldn't be surprised if he turned it down because he actually is that stupid, then Gavin thinks it's a power move and he fails upward yet again into like 50 million.
