Will there be drama? Of course! Silicon Valley is full of exciting drama. Will there be conflict? Of course! Entrepreneurs face conflict daily. Will we showcase every single painstaking detail of startup life? Of course not. This is reality TV, not a documentary. The show isn’t meant to represent all of Silicon Valley, but to authentically follow the lives of a few young people trying to blaze their own trails.

All these hot responses to the show, and not a single episode has even aired yet -- those making these criticisms have only seen previews.
What do you think? Is it too early to start criticizing a program that hasn't been aired yet? Has Zuckerberg attached herself to a bucking bronco? Perhaps the outsized egos in Silicon Valley aren't quite ready for the superficial reality show treatment.
One thing's certain: This whole dustup amounts to a tremendous amount of free publicity for the budding reality show.
