Consistently enjoyable with an occasional laugh out loud gag. But I never think of this as one of my favorite shows. Maybe if I worked in the tech industry, or better yet binged watch, I would like it more.

This show's problem has always been Thomas Middleditch: unfunny, unsympathetic, highly annoying. Everyone else is really funny though. I watch it each week, but it's easily my least favorite Mike Judge project (excluding the short-lived Goode Family), and it's entirely because of Middleditch.

I can see that. He's not easy to like on the show, making it hard to root for him and his cause. The supporting cast is pretty good though, and it's the industry I'm in, so a lot of it hits close for me.

Man, I love Tommy MiddleD. He's been one of the best comedy bang bang guests over the last few years.

I was just referencing the show. Outside of it, I don't know much of his work other than commercials.

My wife is officially out on this show due to his character. A shame because everything else is great.

It's true, even the side characters are awesome.

I have to disagree. Thomas Middleditch is really funny on the show. His performance is grounded in this strange, nuanced way that allows the rest of the characters and the universe they live in to be as off and insane as they are. He's great and the show wouldn't work without him.

I agree that his performance works for the show's goals, and he serves as a competent nucleus around which the other characters fly. But that doesn't change the fact I find him to be annoying as fuck. I hope he follows Erhlich to Tibet.

OK, I can see that one would find him annoying. I see that as part of his charm in the show, though. It works for me

Annoying, yes, but for me the problem is how little his character has changed over the course of the show.

True, but the other characters are funny. I feel like you've seen one season and you've seen them all.

Tonight was the season finale. I was really worried that this was the end for this show, but season six is confirmed.
