Halt and Catch Fire

Scoot McNairy and Lee Pace on 'Halt and Catch Fire'

What happens when the IBM PC is released, corners the market, and then is revealed to have a ridiculously huge flaw?  Well, it makes it so that oh-so-many groups can attempt to make their own computer and cash-in.  Oh yes, the world was changing rapidly, and this new AMC series offers up a tale about one group trying to reverse engineer the PC and make a bundle.  And, they're doing it all from Texas -- this isn't just a show about this one Texas-based group, it's about the changes that would be wrought in the 'Silicon Prairie.'
