The show is great because it shows some people who have ‘fire in their bellies’ trying to bring a product to market. Being a follower not a leader is boring but this show brings out the trials and tribulations that Silicon Valley type companies go through to get ahead. I remember when Texas Instruments flooded the market with hand calculators, I used one after college instead of a ‘slide rule’, and from there I have grown up with tech devices in the workplace. From steam boats, locomotives, cars, to searching for the ‘GOD’ particle in the 17 mile long Collider, people with guts get it done! Tom Edison and Steve Jobs were cut out of the same cloth, and born in the USA! Hooray!

I am a Huge Fan of the Show. I Interests me because I got into Computers at the time
this Series is set. It is clear that it is Modelled after the Compaq Computer Corporation
so I suppose there is lots of Material for a full series.
I think the series should be picked up for another Season not because of the number of
viewers but because of the type of viewers, mostly afluent relatively young technically inclined People.
A Perfect target audience for advertizers.
I am guessing that season 2 would be about the rise of this fledgeling company so it would be fun to see them sticking it to Big Blue !

My family loves this show. Great story line, terrific acting. Great story for kid graduating college…don’t give up and don’t let other people quash your dreams and passions.

I also love this show. The last episode was SO unexpected. I did not see it coming AT ALL. And by the end, I was jumping in my seat anticipating the next one. I think it is well written. And I like remembering how “basic” (get it?) computers used to be. I think the writing and characters keep you interested, and the plot twists keep you on the edge of your seat, especially when you have settled in to expect the usual fare on TV.

I love this show! The characters are well developed and complicated, unlike some critics think. I can’t wait to see what happens when the get to COMDEK (?)- is that the name of the trade show? I think it should last for 3 or 4 seasons. Oh and Lee Pace is dreamy!
