Halt And Catch Fire

This show is supposed to be about the trials and tribulations at the dawn of the personal computer age. I’d say about 25% of the show does provide some dramatic technical and business detail, fictionalized though they may be. The rest of the show is a standard soap opera about people who are almost all seriously flawed and extremely unpleasant.

I’m not sure there is a character in the show that I care about. Season One was interesting enough that I watched it all, but when Season Two came out…even though this is a topic of interest to me…I just didn’t want those people and their problems back in my life, so I stopped after the first season.  Someone, please let me know if it got better.  For now, I give Season One a medium YES.
