Halt And Catch Fire Is Back For A Finale
We unashamedly and not surprisingly adore Halt and Catch Fire the tv show from AMC. Especially coder superstar Cameron Howe and all the self styled code monkeys.
Eighties, Silicon Valley, Eighties games, start of the web...what can go wrong!
The title sequence is also very cool with music from Trentemøller and a superb creative team

If you are not familiar with Halt and Catch Fire then here goes.
Halt and Catch Fire is an American period drama television series created by Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers that premiered on AMC on June 1, 2014. Taking place over a period of ten years, the series depicts a fictionalized insider's view of the personal computer revolution of the 1980s and later the growth of the World Wide Web in the early 1990s. The series' first two seasons are set in the Silicon Prairie of Dallas–Fort Worth, while the latter two seasons are set in Silicon Valley.
The show's title refers to computer machine code instruction HCF, the execution of which would cause the computer's central processing unit to stop working ("catch fire" was a humorous exaggeration).
AMC renewed Halt and Catch Fire for a fourth and final season of 10 episodes on October 10, 2016.
The final season began with a two-hour premiere on August 19, 2017.
