If you're still hesitating to watch this show then I'm gonna share my little opinion about it:

It really took me some time to watch it. I waited like 2 months after they released all the episodes. I wasn't feeling particularly excited to watch it. Show based a few decades ago? Old technology? Very dark greenish-yellowish colors? To me that looked a bit boring.

Nevertheless, I decided to give it a try and oh dear! WHAT A SHOW! What a surprise! First of all the actors are terribly good! Like I have no words to describe on how good Davis and Pace are in their roles. The plot is also incredibly catchy (When I switched episodes, my mind was literally about to explode because I was that impatient !). The characters are also so interesting. We have a strong leading females character, who are smart and not here to be the love interests. We also have a very VERY interesting bisexual lead male character and so much more! I thought I would miss the lack of modern technology but I didn't - it just really impressed me and educated me on how everything happened from the heavy computer to the mac book air :p. As for the dark and warmish colors, they are perfect, they settle the tone!

Very happy H&CF was renewed for a second season. I am expecting a lot from it and I hope I will not be disappointed!

So, if you're still hesitating to watch this show, my advice is: don't think, just try and hopefully you will be as hooked up as I was!

Thanks. I just watch anything with Lee Pace (or Merryl Streep) in it, and saw 2 episodes thinking "I'm here just for Lee Pace...'till the plot and the great performances of all of them not only LP turned me addicted. The only thing I dont change: I fond 80 s fashion really silly...lol

I felt the same way but once I watched, I couldn't stop. It is one of the best shows of the decade! Hopefully they are getting some awards for this gem!

Grandissima serie! Le tematiche apparentemente possono sembrare di nicchia ma qualitativamente è ai livelli dei vari mad men, broadway empire ecc..
Halt and Catch Fire non è una serie tv che dev'essere vista solo da chi capisce di informatica perchè le tematiche sono tante: ambizione, potere, amore, famiglia sono solo alcuni tasselli di questo grandissimo telefilm.
Caratterizzazione dei personaggi, ambientazione e fotografie degne di nota!
Consigliatissima!

Great series! The issues appear to be in niche but is qualitatively different levels of mad men, broadway empire etc ..
Halt and catch fire is not a TV series that should be seen only by those who understand computer because the issues are many: ambition, power, love, family are just a few pieces of this great show.
Characterization, setting and photographs noteworthy!
Highly recommended!

Come faccio a spiegare a parole quanto è bella Halt & Catch Fire? Spero solo che non sia una di quelle serie meravigliose, ma troppo di nicchia per andare avanti nel tempo! Un piccolo capolavoro!

How do I put into words how beautiful Halt & Catch Fire? I just hope it is not one of those wonderful series, but too niche to go forward in time! A little masterpiece!

Serie di gran qualità che davanti agli occhi di un nerd come me acquista ancora più valore! La scenografia è incredibile, al pari di quella di Mad Men. Da apprezzare poi i vari rimandi al mondo dell'informatica di quel periodo. Contento che sia stata rinnovata!!

Series of great quality that before the eyes of a nerd like me buy even more value! The scenery is incredible, like that of Mad Men. Since then appreciate the various references to the world of that time. Glad it was renewed !!

Primera temporada, vale la pena darle la oportunidad.
Empecé a ver esta serie porque no tenía más que ver, y es que desde que salió juego de tronos o breaking bad, las series no son ni lo suficientemente espectaculares, ni lo suficientemente inteligentes.

Decidí darle una oportunidad a Halt and Catch Fire, ya que había escuchado buenos comentarios; pese a que el nombre no es atractivo y la temática de los computadores tampoco. A pocos les interesa el auge de los computadores personales en la época de los 80. En todo caso los buenos comentarios hicieron que le diera una oportunidad de 10 minutos, como para ver si me enganchaba, y resulta que termine viendo la primera temporada de un mordisco.

Halt and Catch Fire tiene elementos que lo pueden hacer adictivo. Unos personajes bien definidos y diferenciados. Vemos Joe MacMillan, un sociópata, manipulador, que tiene la visión, y es un mala copia de liderazgo y frases estilo Steve jobs, y es un personaje al cual todos odian y admiran por igual. Tenemos a Gordon, el cual es un perdedor y genio por partes iguales, experto en Hardware, empieza tímido y aprende a sacar las uñas poco a poco. Y finalmente esta Cameron, la experta en Software, una chica rebelde, con unas ideas muy futuristas, la cual debe madurar a la fuerza, y lo hace. Respecto a la historia, puede que te sientes a verla porque quieres ver en la trama como progresan y logran un sueño, el tratar de hacer competencia a la misma IBM. El final de la primera temporada me gusto, es impredecible, y deja muchas preguntas.

En todo caso dale los 10 minutos que yo le di a la serie para empezarla a ver, y si te agarra; entonces encontrarás algo para entretenerte, tiene sus fallos; pero es que entre tanta serie irregular se agradece algo medianamente bueno. Le doy un 7.5 con cara de 8 y además dejo un comentario.

First season worth taking the chance.
I started watching this series because I had no more to do, and that since he left Game of Thrones or breaking bad, the series are not spectacular enough or smart enough.

I decided to give an opportunity to Halt and Catch Fire, as I had heard good things; although the name is not subject to appeal and computers either. Few care to the rise of personal computers in the age of 80. In any case the good comments made to give him a chance to 10 minutes to see if I hooked, and it ends watching the first season of a bite.

Halt and Catch Fire has elements that can make addictive. Well-defined and differentiated characters. We see Joe MacMillan, a sociopath, handler, who has the vision, and is a bad copy of leadership style and phrases Steve jobs, and is a character to which all hate and admire alike. We Gordon, who is a loser and genius equal parts hardware expert, begins timid and learn to draw the nails slowly. And finally this Cameron, expert Software, a rebellious girl, with very futuristic ideas, which must mature by force, and it does. Regarding the story, it might feel to see it because you want to see in the plot as progress and achieve a dream, trying to make competition to the same IBM. The end of the first season like me, is unpredictable, and leaves many questions.

In any case give the 10 minutes I gave the series to start it to see, and if you grab; then find something to entertain you, it has its flaws; but it is that so many irregular series is appreciated something fairly good. I give it a 7.5-faced 8 and also leave a comment.

La segunda temporada es ahun mejor y más destacable. Joe Macmillan es lo máximo y su papel en la serie rompe moldes tanto a nivel interpretativo como en la trama. Muy recomendable.

One of the most underrated shows of the century. Everything is near perfect. Please give it a chance.
