Before there was Silicon Valley, featuring T.J. Miller spouting off crude jokes and somewhat sagacious witticisms, there was Betas, featuring Jon Daly spouting off crude jokes and somewhat sagacious witticisms. The four leads (basically three nerds plus Daly) find themselves fighting the clock and enlisting help (enter PEN15’s Maya Erskine) in order to get their new dating app funded and subsequently launched. During the many misadventures of the cast, the show tries—with some success—to shine a spotlight on the more rock and roll side of the tech scene, with plot points repeatedly focusing on sex, drugs, and Daly’s belligerence. All in all, you’re better off rewatching HBO’s Silicon Valley instead.
