Bravo’s “Start-Ups: Silicon Valley” has been a punchline for critics both inside and outside of tech circles. But TIME’s Scott Gerber posits that the show is more than just bad entertainment; it’s “flat-out dangerous for America’s youth entrepreneurship movement.”

Gerber goes on: “We’re living at a time when youth unemployment is disastrously high. By all means, young people should be considering entrepreneurship as a career option right now. But pushing the idea that such a life choice is anything but damn hard work is not only dishonest, it’s reckless.” [Source: TIME]
