Not sure what's cheeky about the Silicon Vally area but I may have missed it. Lived up the road in Hillsborough for ten years so maybe its a nuevo rich kind of thing:)
Back around 1973, or so I was in a mens clothing store down in SoCal (Sherman Oaks). There only two of us plus the store owner and the other guy was Rock Hudson. He looked so small and emaciated that had the store owner not mentioned him I would have never recognized the guy. This was was way prior to the AIDS epidemic of the eighties. Certainly not the guy portrayed in this series albeit much earlier.

And all out of six buildings in a little town nestled in the Santa Cruz mountain foothills.

It's an entirely fictionalised take on real people and events, but probably a little to politically correct, which only diminishes it. It's made me do a bit of research on some of the characters, and a series based on their real lives would have been MUCH more interesting. Acting is hilarious, OTT 1940s Hollywood -- with accents to match, which adds an appropriate touch of camp. Three out of five.
