"They actually overlapped," Woods says of the two HBO comedies. "I was flying between L.A. and London and I was in sort of this bizarre crossfade from one into the other. We shot Avenue 5 before we shot the last season of Silicon Valley. It was strange. On Silicon Valley, it seems so improbable that the people were so spectacular and easy to be around. And I kind of gave myself a pep talk before going to London where I was like, 'don't need this to be the same, don't expect it to be the same because it's not going to.' Also, it was a bigger cast, so I just thought, statistically, there's a high probability that there will be at least two dickheads. Then I got there and nary a dickhead in sight. Everyone was so sweet and nice. I'm kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop because I just feel, what are the chances that I'm on two shows in a row where I feel comfortable?" ALSO: Hugh Laurie was initally concerned about his shifting Avenue 5 accents.
