Silicon Valley is just begging for a good show to be made about it. Bravo's attempt is not that show, but maybe Mike Judge's can be. Or maybe this PBS one that's now in the running.

Part of the PBS history series American Experience, the special willl be taking a look at the birth of Silicon Valley, the birth of the transistor, and how what unfolded back then came to shape the world as we know it today. If that sounds a little better than watching annoying people string together infuriatingly played-out tech buzzwords, then congratulations; it sounds like you have a brain. You can tune in to fill it up with a little tech history on February 19th. [CNET]
