We may have a great new drama on our hands... or we may have just another middling AMC series.

Tech Recap: Playing With Friends (s2e4)
I am imagining John Bosworth saying, "Ya see, time is a flat circle. ..." He would be so right. In this episode many people are treading the same ground from a time before the series started.

Tech Recap: 10Broad36
This week is one of those rare times that Halt and Catch Fire places a technical term into an episode title itself. It's even kind of a spoiler. So without further ado ...

Set in the early 1980's, as per AMC, the show "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." Joe MacMillan leaves his job at IBM with a dream: take the one, tiny part of the PC that’s proprietary to his former employer, reverse-engineer it, make it his own and give the tech giant some competition on the home-computer front. The series title "Halt and Catch Fire" is a computer-code joke, referring to the command that causes a computer’s central processing unit to stop working. The series was created by Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers. Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein from Gran Via Prods serve as executive producers.
