Halt and Catch Fire pilot episode

AMC has released the Halt and Catch Fire pilot episode online for everyone to preview ahead of the series’ June 1st premiere. This might be my most anticipated new television series of the year, a fictionalized dramatic thriller set in the wild west of the early 1980s PC revolution. The show is set during the expansion of the PC market after IBM rose to prominence. The new series stars Lee Pace as Joe MacMillan, Scoot McNairy as Gordon Clark, Kerry Bishé as Donna Clark, and Mackenzie Davis as Cameron Howe, who exploit particular aspects of IBM’s design to create their own personal computer. Find out how to watch the Halt and Catch Fire pilot episode after the jump, and we’ve also included the trailer for the new television series.
