It's odd because the rest of us see a polished, dramatic, funny TV show, and we think it must be dramatic and funny making it too.
Incidentally a lot of what happens to produce the cool stuff that comes out of the real Silicon Valley is boring. For example, good code is 90% boring. No surprises. And it takes day-in, day-out plugging and chugging. If Silicon Valley was actually all like the show, there'd be a lot less cool stuff, and a lot less to make fun of.
