HBO’s new sitcom Silicon Valley, which has already been renewed for a second season, follows six socially awkward computer programmers living together and launching a startup tech company. We chatted with the stars of the show at their premiere party to find out about their favorite rooms on set and how they fare with technology in their own homes.

What’s your favorite room on set?

Before we moved to the stage, we shot in a real house in Los Angeles, which had an awesome pool and ping pong table on its back patio. We had several tournaments going before we started shooting back at the studio, which didn’t have either. So my favorite room was gone after the pilot!

How high-tech is your own home?

I am a techno-phobic, total Luddite – completely technologically challenged in my home. My favorite room is what my fiancée and I call the dog room; their crates are there, and it’s the room where the dogs are allowed on the furniture. It’s a cuddle place!
