James Corden is on a parody binge at the moment. The other day it was Jordan Peele’s Us, and now — perhaps unsurprisingly — he’s going after the Theranos documentary.
In fairness, The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley is ripe for parody — and Corden pretty much covers all bases in the sketch above: from Elizabeth Holmes’ unblinking stare to the fairly wild idea at the centre of it all (which, in Corden’s case at least, boils down to poo in a box).
Ew. Read more…

Theranos ex-CEO Elizabeth Holmes has yet to lock down a date for her criminal trial, but in the court of public opinion, a verdict has already been rendered.
If you’ve been on the internet at all in the past week, you’ve likely seen a small truckload of viewer reactions to HBO’s The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley — many of them delighting in the damning portrayal of Holmes and her alleged multi-million dollar fraud.
But HBO wasn’t the first to profile the entrepreneur and they won’t be the last. From podcasts to movies, the now-defunct blood-testing company is the subject of a whole slew of projects, nearly all of which position Holmes as their star subject. Read more…

HBO’s Theranos documentary has finally aired, and you bet people have thoughts.
The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley was always going to be a creepy watch, but what’s particularly shocking are the details of how Elizabeth Holmes managed to fool enough rich people into given her millions of dollars for technology that didn’t work.
Holmes, who modelled herself after Steve Jobs, even wore a black turtleneck. At least one person dressed for the occasion.

“She didn’t blink.”
It’s a peculiar observation, but when ex-Theranos receptionist Cheryl Gafner makes it, it’s hard to shake — Elizabeth Holmes, the fraudster behind the now defunct blood testing company Theranos, doesn’t blink.
Or at least when she does blink, it is done with purpose, a cool and calculating gesture that accompanies a specific word or phrase. To Holmes, blinks are seemingly for conveying sincerity and establishing trust, not an involuntary response to, y’know, having eyeballs.
It’s an unsettling behavior to witness, particularly when put in the context of Holmes’ dangerous multi-million dollar fraud. But gaining awareness of creepy details like this one is an essential part of The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley viewing experience. Read more…
