    Anyone watching this series? (if so, no spoilers please as my wife and I are watching last year's episodes). Couple things about it don't ring true at all. Takes place in Miami, 1959. I'm 66 so was a bit young to be in on a lot of adult conversation at the time but even when I was in high school the use of vulgarities (the F word primarily) was simply not done in front of women and I don't know that it would be common for any women to use that language during that time period. Of course they do in this TV series (along with every one of them having breast implants that don't even begin to look natural). So, is this revisionist history just to appease and appeal to today's young folks or did adults use that sort of language and I just missed it?
