Bill Gates: If you want to understand the tech world, watch ‘Silicon Valley’

Today 18:11 GMT

“If you really want to understand how Silicon Valley works today, you should watch the HBO series ‘Silicon Valley,’” he wrote. Gates said he relates most to Richard, played by Thomas Middleditch, an awkward entrepreneur “who is a great programmer but has to learn some hard lessons about managing people.”

He has time to catch up: Season 6 of “Silicon Valley” — which may be its last — won’t be shot until next summer, and likely won’t air on AT&T’s T, +0.20%   HBO until 2020, Variety reported last week.

Post-outrage TV: how South Park is surviving the era of controversy

Today 20:55 GMT

By mocking something as ridiculous as climate change deniers, the show is then free to take a swipe at more liberal sensibilities, safe in the knowledge that, as long as the characters (and creators) continue to ridicule their own behaviour, South Park will always be relevant.

More than ever before, South Park is questioning its own place in society, abandoning its usual approach of ‘offend everyone to offend no one’ to instead become more existential.

The brilliant Saints just turned the Eagles' Super Bowl hangover into a coma

Today 09:00 GMT

The Eagles, Super Bowl coma or not, probably didn’t have much of a chance in upsetting the Saints on the road, although they almost certainly could have at least made a go of it early on.
