Things literally caught fire on Sunday's Season 1 finale of AMC's Halt and Catch Fire.

Despite the roller coaster ride that was Comdex in the penultimate episode, Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace) & Co. were able to sell enough units of the Cardiff Electric Giant to earn Joe and Gordon (Scoot McNairy) an 8 percent stake in the company. But Joe, who was still smarting from seeing Apple's talking Macintosh and his breakup with Cameron (Mackenzie Davis), just couldn't leave well enough alone.

Can Halt and Catch Fire reboot AMC's drama slate?

No longer satisfied to just hawk a "faster, cheaper IBM clone," Joe... read more

Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal

As any longtime fan of Sons of Anarchy might expect, the final season of FX's flagship drama is going to be a bumpy ride. 

The show's swan song, which kicks off Sept. 9 at 10/9c, picks up 10 days after the end of last season, when Jax (Charlie Hunnam) was found in his home cradling the corpse of his brutally murdered wife Tara (Maggie Siff). Although the new season begins with Jax behind bars, he's eventually freed and sets out to punish the person responsible for Tara's death.

Dean Winters and Josh Duhamel, Vince Gilligan

CBS is selling its new midseason drama Battle Creek as being the next project from Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan. And while it's not completely untrue, it certainly may give the wrong impression.

Gilligan wrote the script for Battle Creek — which tells the story of Detective Russ Agnew (Dean Winters) and his contentious relationship with FBI AgentMilton Chamberlin (Josh Duhamel) when the duo is forced to work together on a case — and pitched it to CBS 12 years ago. In fact, he admitted during a panel at the Television Critics' Association fall previews that it's been so long since he wrote it that he doesn't even remember how he settled on Battle Creek as the setting and title for the show.

Now, however, CBS has dusted off Gilligan's script ... read more

In particular, we learned that Matt's wife (Janel Moloney) was critically injured during the Departure when she and Matt collided with a vehicle whose driver vanished. His congregation's numbers are dwindling (the townspeople justifiably upset by his smear campaign) and he is struggling to pay for his wife's full-time care.
