Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Silicon Valley is a comedy that centers on a group of young, mostly male computer programmers attempting to strike it rich in the tech world. Characters use sexually charged jokes and crass, unbleeped language -- from audible words like "cum" to "f--k" -- and also drink and use both illegal and prescription drugs like mushrooms and Adderall. There's some name-dropping of popular tech brands, too, plus visible product logos.
Mainly sex jokes, with the occasional scantily clad stripper.
Slapstick-grade injuries, some physical threats, etc.
Unbleeped language includes words like "f--k," "s--t," "prick," "boner," etc.
Outcasts have all the power, and it pays to be seriously smart. But a college education is portrayed as a "joke," and dropping out doesn't necessarily have negative consequences. There's also a subtle theme that you have to be an "a--hole" -- as opposed to a good person -- to be successful.
Brands like Apple and Microsoft are mentioned, and some product logos are visible.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Characters drink socially. Some also use drugs like pot and mushrooms and abuse prescription medications.
