HALT AND CATCH FIRE


The conflicts and overall ascension within the computer industry of our five main characters

Lee Pace as computer salesman & visionary leader Joe MacMillan

Scoot McNairy as the brilliant hardware creator, Gordon Clark

Mackenzie Davis as ingenious designer Cameron (Catherine) Howe

Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark, business woman and wife to Gordon, in that order.

Toby Huss is high octane dynamite as John Bosworth

Annabeth Gish appears this  season as investor Diane Gould along with Matthew Lillard as major power investor behind to McMillan industries...

And Manish Dayal, who plays Ryan Ray this season.   Manish plays Ryan with a ferocity & passion for pure creation. His performance is nothing short of stellar.

Working for Cameron and Gordon at Mutiny,  he sees no potential to achieve his purpose so he seeks out Joe McMillan.

Resistant at first Joe is taken by ryan's drive to create and they begin working hand-in-hand to create something brand-new when Joe McMillan is just about to become the ruthless salesman we met in season one again.

Ryan saves him...

At the time of this recording I had not finished season three.

I have now,  and I can say...holy shit.

If you thought the ending of season two was amazing the ending of season three is inspirational.

Bravo to Christopher Cantwell and Christopher C. Rogers, writers and show runners of this passion project... and the directors of episode nine season three the best episode of the series has ever done.

Bravo to the cast.

Bravo to AMC, as they have granted halt a fourth and final season next year as of six days ago.

You can watch the first two seasons on Netflix people...we have one more season to go.

We have to support the great storytellers, we must.
