Mike Judge‘s Silicon Valley series (HBO, eight episodes, debuting 4.6) takes place in contemporary times, but some of the hair styles look like the ’70s or early ’80s. The atmosphere and the dialogue sound right. “Partially inspired by Judge’s own experiences as a Silicon Valley engineer in the late ’80s,” etc. Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjiani, Josh Brener, Matt Ross and Christopher Evan Welch.
