We don't watch HBO, but just watching them film around town is free entertainment for our kids. Was this a one-time thing, or will future episodes also be filmed here?

A television pilot is a one-off episode filmed to sell the series concept to the network(s).

There's less than a one-in-four chance that any pilot will get to series production.

For the actual series location shooting, it's entirely possible that they would use a different locale, one that's cheaper to work in and do very little shooting in Silicon Valley (apart from aerials, etc.).

A series would almost certainly be shot in a warehouse in Santa Monica, or thereabouts, not here.

Say it ain't so, Saint Clare is the patron saint of television.
