Halt and Catch Fire (2014-)

2014- | USA | Christopher Cantwell & Christopher C. Rogers | ★★★★

Rogers & Cantwell's Halt and Catch Fire is an enigmatically engrossing, formally elegant '80s-set series about the birth of modern computing, featuring unpredictable plotting, well-drawn characters, and a number of excellent performances.


"Set in the 1980s, this series dramatizes the personal computing boom through the eyes of a visionary, an engineer and a prodigy whose innovations directly confront the corporate behemoths of the time. Their personal and professional partnership will be challenged by greed and ego while charting the changing culture in Texas' Silicon Prairie." AMC
