I liked it, though I'm not sure how well they'll keep it up long term. It remains to be seen if they stay close to history, since the real Sheriff Ralph Lamb was alledged to be dirty himself, having been accused of taking bribes and taking part in some shading financial deals.

Well, Lamb became Sheriff in 1961, so that is likely the year they're in. What cars were too new for then? I think the Cadillac Brougham the mob guys rode in was from 1959. I don't remember what model truck Lamb was driving, but I didn't notice anything else. The police cars were all 50's era models.
It should be pointed out, that all color TVs were square screens. Only early black and white ones were round. Also, color TV started in 1954 and 50% of the shows were in color by 1965. It's not out of the realm of possiblilty those in Vegas - including gansters and correupt politicians as well as the casinos themselves might have the latest and greatest TV sets.

As noted, it's based on a real guy, so the timeframe is relevent to the story.
It would be nice to see a more orange, almond, gold and tangerine pallete (along with dark walnut and oak) since those were popular colors back then. Some of the colors seemed a bit cool for the era.
