Halt and Catch Fire – a retro computer lovers dream
You guys seen this? Only just started watching it and I can’t believe it first aired in 2015! This TV series is right up my street! It’s set around the birth of the home PC. Halt and Catch Fire follows a group of programmers and engineers through their rocky climb to commercial success against the big boy that are IBM. It’s a very David vs Goliath situation. How many shows out there do you get to see racks of early 80’s computer and networking hardware? With their big bulky grey buttons and flashing lights. It’s nostalgic heaven.
