Halt and Catch Fire: “Search” / “Ten of Swords”

Margaux and I say goodbye forever to Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: It’s fitting that Halt and Catch Fire’s final two episodes would be all about saying goodbye. In “Search,” Donna worries that she’s losing her family: Gordon is dead, and Joanie is going to China. Cameron is leaving Comet after a short stint as chief coder, and even Bos...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Goodwill”

Margaux and I bid discuss a devastating episode of Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: This was a rough one – and I mean that in a good way. “Goodwill” was such a stark, forthright look at grief and loss that it was hard to watch (again, in a good way). This reminded me of last season’s brilliant finale “NeXT”; this too was... Read More | Share it now!

31 Days of Fright: A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)

“I can sleep. I just don’t want to.” It’s starting to become conventional, accepted wisdom that there is, at times, good reason to remake a film. Maybe it’s because the original was garbage, in which case, go for it – for instance, I have no objection to the Friday the 13th remake, because Friday is the worst movie...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Who Needs a Guy”

Margaux and I discuss a devastating Halt and Catch Fire. (Spoilers ahead.) Trevor: I can’t imagine many shows being able to pull of what Halt and Catch Fire pulled off in the excellent “Who Needs a Guy.” Many times while reviewing this show with you, I’ve celebrated the fact that it moved away from trying to be the new Mad Men, but after...

Halt and Catch Fire: “A Connection is Made”

After a week off (I was sick), Margaux and I return, as prophesied, to talk about Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: Not a lot of shows can pull off an episode like “A Connection is Made.” It strikes such a tonal balance that a lesser show would probably give a viewer whiplash. For much of its runtime, “Connection” is a very sweet episode,... Read More | Share it now!

Star Trek: Discovery – CBS All Access Review

Star Trek: Discovery is a show that had a lot of people worried with its loss of showrunner and constant delays. Well, the show is finally here almost ten-months behind schedule and while not yet worthy of classic Star Trek, Discovery has a lot of room to grow. The first thing people will notice is the new style that the series is playing with.... Read More | Share it now!

Halt and Catch Fire “Tonya and Nancy” – Review

Trevor: I think what I’m enjoying most about Halt and Catch Fire’s final season is the sense of discovery. This is a huge story told on a very intimate scale, and it occurred to me while watching “Tonya and Nancy” that this show has had the same core ensemble for four seasons now (the only impactful characters to be added later were Tom and...

Halt and Catch Fire: “Miscellaneous”

Margaux and I get the band back together to talk about the best show no one watches, Halt and Catch Fire.  Trevor: First things first: thanks for filling in last week. You did a great job covering a great pair of episodes. That said, I am so excited to bet talking about Halt and Catch Fire with you again. It’s bittersweet any time we have to say...
