For nerds of all stripe, this Sunday night will be an imploding black hole of greatness, with the Season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones, and, right after that, the Season 2 debut of our favorite tech-themed dramedy, Silicon Valley.

In the delightfully awkward trailer, you’ll see the boys rounding up their VC resources to compete with Google stand-in Hooli, who’s hot on the Pied Piper trail to get their algorithms for data compression to market first.

Get your Apple TV ready, because Sunday is all HBO.

The dorm-room aesthetic is in full force as the startup geeks call each other “bro” to keep pumped and productive.

“I’ve never felt like anyone’s bro before,” says eternal good guy, Jared Dunn. “The only people who’ve used that term with me were assailants.”

He then reworks “bros before hos” into something unrecognizable, saying, “It’s sexist, but it’s about friendship.”

The HBO show returns this Sunday, so prepare yourself for some fantastically written and acted stories about the bizarre petri dish of the tech world in the bay area.
