While the show was amusing, I really didn't like the whole tequila on the delete key. It moves the show into the realm of absurdity when the whole idea was to make fun of what was out there. Russ is a character that just seems to exist to move the story where Mr. Judge wants it to go.

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

I just found this show a few months ago. You know, for incredibly smart guys, they sure are clueless.

The whole tequila on the delete key was hysterical, and since he's the money guy and will probably end up costing them, I wonder how that will turn out, since he refuses to actually fund them.

It was absurd that Pied Piper had the ability to permanently delete the files transferred through FTP. But, a bit of absurdity is common for a Mike Judge creation; Jared being sent offshore last season was about as absurd as this show can get.

I loved when Richard trumpeted the efficient rate at which Pied Piper's platform deleted the files.

It's absurd that a company in a position to award a $15 million contract to a startup would not have backups, including offsite backups, of the content.

Being in the industry I agree, but alas I need to let that go for the show world even if they had backups deleting that content of it was partner their "live" site would take a long time to recover.

If you are a smoker and people breathe in your 2nd hand smoke, doesn't that mean they owe you half a pack of cigarettes?
