Halt & Catch Fire is the latest in a string of hit AMC original series. The name originates from a 1980s computer programming command that would cause the computer to make an attempt to simultaneously prioritize every command entered. The overload is unstoppable and the computer hard drive is rendered virtually useless. The premier episode carefully introduces characters that prove to be both interesting and complex. An edgy and aloof student creates chemistry with an intriguing businessman who seems willing to risk immense success in order to create the ultimate computer that will change the way the businesses operate and individuals communicate. Together the forward thinking and somewhat neurotic pair set out to make their dreams a reality despite obvious and foreshadowed obstacles. Aside from the expert character development and superb production, what makes this series so irresistible is the actual plot. The story is based on a combination of real life events, common speculation, and pure creative licence. Personal computers, technology company takeovers, and even the World Wide Web are discussed from a perspective that dates back far enough to imagine their virtual inception.
