This show is very promising, but I can also see some major challenges. I have spent a big chunk of my career around the startup/small company tech industry, and this show is very funny if you know the inside jokes. The argument over who gets more of the company, which starts with relative value of the two key guys' contributions, but boils down to each just wants to have more than the other guy, was very funny and is so true. The major challenge for this show is that a lot of people are not going to get the "inside baseball" of the startup tech industry. There are idiots like Erlich that lurk around so many of these tech companies, and I have run into dozens of them over the years and think that the portrayal is spot on. I am just not sure if everyone else will get the joke. The next episode is about the fact that a sprinkler company is using the same name. That stuff happens all the time in real life, which is why so many of these tech companies have nonsense names. Early reviews are very good, so I hope that HBO will stick with it even if it takes a little time to get an audience.
