Halt and Catch Fire

Television is clearly the medium of choice among discerning adults these days, with Sunday has becoming the de-facto event night over the last few years. With Mad Men coming to an end this "season" (spread over a greedy two years), AMC needs a new period drama to hang it's profits on. Halt and Catch Fire–the title being a play on old machine code that causes a computer to stop functioning—hints the show will follow the drama and nastiness that arose during the IBM-ruled computing world of the mid-80s. I, for one, think it looks pretty damn good. The drama begins June 1st on AMC. Click here for the first trailer.
