Newly arrived to freewheeling San Francisco, Mary Ann Singleton quickly realizes just how far from Cleveland she really is. Moving into a funky house at Twenty-eight Barbary Lane where her landlord welcomes her with a joint, Mary Ann befriends the other residents and finds a good-natured home amid the drugs, drama, and debauchery. Based on Armistead Maupin's beloved novel, the Peabody Award-winning PBS miniseries deftly chronicles the quest for love and connection across a spectrum of sexual experiences.

Heard a lot about this TV series based on Armistead Maupin's novels with the same name but have never watched the program till now. It is about the diversity of people living in San Francisco during the 70's, with many surprises AND one heck of a mystery. Highly entertaining with heartfelt stories on love, sexuality, families and friendship. Understand that Netflix has aired a sequel in June 7, 2019.

Note: know about "Lah and "Sif"? (see "Quotes.")

(Two men smoking weed...)

Is this local?
-Huh-unh. L.A.
Good old "Lah."
-Huh?
Lah. L.A. is Lah. S.F. is "Sif."
-Oh.
Is it ever. Jesus, one more toke, and I'll see God.
-Can't. He moved to Lah.
God is in Lah?
-Who do you think sold it to me?
