Can Halt and Catch Fire Reboot AMC's Drama Slate?

If you tune in to AMC Sunday night at 10/9c, you'll find a period piece starring a handsome, well-dressed man who, despite having the confidence and silver tongue to sell almost anything, is running from his complicated past. And no, we're not talking about Mad Men or Don Draper.

The show in question is Halt and Catch Fire, a drama set in the "Silicon Prairie" of Dallas, Texas in 1983 that tells the story of the race to build the best personal computer.  And while the surface comparisons to Mad Men may be incidental, it's no surprise that AMC would be looking to recapture some of that show's magic as the network prepares to reboot itself after saying goodbye to its cornerstone property next year.

Where does AMC go from here?

"More than anything, we talk about doing what got us to the dance," AMC president Charlie Collier told TVGuide.com back in January while speaking of upcoming projects, including Halt and Catch Fire. Added Executive Vice President of Original Programming Joel Stillerman: "Shows that just a handful of networks in the business would even entertain are much more the bread and butter of what we're doing. The game is to be eclectic by design and look for the great visionaries who we can empower to do their passion projects and big original ideas."

With Halt and Catch Fire, AMC got just that...read more

Weekend TV: Silicon Valley finale, Halt and Catch Fire Premiere

Computer geeks rule this Sunday, as HBO's hilarious Silicon Valley wraps its first season on a triumphant high, while in the very same time period (10/9c), AMC launches the intriguing new drama Halt and Catch Fire, flashing back 30 years to the early days of the 1980s PC revolution. The best bet, as it has been throughout its eight-episode freshman run, is Silicon Valley, introducing an ensemble of such endearing quirkiness that even a decidedly low-tech soul such as myself hangs on every word as timid visionary Richard (Thomas Middleditch, a marvel of quaking anxiety) prepares to unleash the fruits of his "compression algorithm" through an upstart company named Pied Piper.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: What Is the Blue Alien? One Theory Debunked!

Ever since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was picked up, there's been one question on everyone's minds: How the heck is Agent Coulson still alive after being brutally stabbed through the heart in The Avengers?

Slowly, but surely, the ABC super series has unraveled that mystery. Thus far, we've learned that Coulson (Clark Gregg) was dead for several days, not a few minutes, and that Director Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) moved heaven and Earth to bring him back to life through several surgeries that also wiped his memories of the experience. More recently, Coulson discovered a secret bunker that housed half a blue alien whose blood, imbued with regenerative powers, saved Coulson's life. It was the same blood that was used to bring Skye (Chloe Bennet) back to life.

Ask Matt: Mom & Laugh Tracks, Dexter and Broadchurch Finales

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: On your recommendation, I watched the first episode of Mom. Why do sitcoms insist on using these horrible laugh tracks still? I found it so distracting it took away from any viewing pleasure. I'll sample the show again because I really like the actors, but do you hate laugh tracks as much as I do? — Rob
