The Bachmanity has begun! Well, not entirely, but the spirit of Erlich Bachman’s season three game-changer was palpable as the cast of HBO’s Silicon Valley got together for their first ever panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Cast members Thomas Middleditch, Amanda Crew, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, writer/director/executive producer Alec Berg and co-creator Mike Judge were in attendance as fans were treated to exclusive extras, some (minor) hints for season four and also got to watch the cast hijack the panel from the poor Entertainment Weekly writer tasked with leading their conversation.
Sadly, missing from the panel were T.J. Miller, Big Head himself, who is “off filming some movie with Steven Spielberg” (Ready Player One, for those not paying attention) and Martin Starr, AKA Gilfoyle, who happens to be in Atlanta filming Spider-Man: Homecoming that, “obviously not one person at Comic Con would have any questions about,” our moderator quipped.
However, fans of the show did not leave disappointed, as they played witness to delightful bits, insight into the gang’s incredible improvisation, and so much more.
On that note, read on for 5 things we learnt this year at the Silicon Valley SDCC panel!
