Halt and Catch Fire is about the costs of daring to dream big at the dawn of the Information Age. In Season One, a visionary, an engineer, a prodigy and a working mother came together and were subsequently torn apart by their quest to build a personal computer. In the end they were left with the harsh realization that in history, only the truly disruptive ideas are destined to matter. Season Two, which takes place in early 1985, centers on the rise of Mutiny, Cameron and Donna's start-up company, which is built upon the most disruptive idea of the modern era the Internet. In short order, Joe, Gordon, and Bosworth, too, are caught up in the online wave remaking the tech landscape all around them, even as they attempt to heal old wounds and deal with the fallout of Season One. Halt and Catch Fire Season Two explores themes that tap directly into the modern zeitgeist such as the thin line separating genius from self-delusion, the fragility of human connection, and everyone s desire, especially in today's tech-obsessed world, to leave a meaningful mark and do something that truly matters.
