Mike Judge (“Office Space,” “King of the Hill”) brings his irreverent brand of humor to HBO in this new comedy series, which looks at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech Gold Rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Kinda figured GOT would debut week after True Detective concludes. I’m so there!

  • Daniel

    Doesn’t True Detective end March second, since there are eight episodes? Will girls air alone since Looking only has eight episodes also I think?

  • Paul928

    It’s truly absurd how much I’ve been looking forward to this show, returning.
    And in case anyone is interested…the season 3 blu-ray/dvd comes out on 02/18.

  • john

    Good to see GOT will not debut head to head with Walking Dead finale. I thought they were dumb to do that last year. Why court needless competition?

  • MeAndMrsJones

    GoT is such a disappointment. Oh well, I’ll check out True Detective and wait and wait for Veep.

  • Ivan

    GoT, Veep, VICE!!!

    2014 is looking a lot better!

    (If you are so much more capable of converting a book to a script to a TV Show/Movie, then prove it or STFU)
