The First Episode of Our Brand New Halt and Catch Fire Recap FreqCast
We’ve both been huge fans of Halt and Catch Fire, AMC’s underappreciated drama following a group of brilliant, ambitious people through the early days of the PC revolution, the birth of online gaming, and now, in its fourth and final season, the explosion of the internet, for a long time.

Perhaps more than anything else, Tacoma is proof that a decent story, brilliantly told (which Tacoma is) is far better than a brilliant story, decently told. The follow-up to their debut masterpiece, Gone Home, Tacoma demonstrates that Fullbright are still in a class by themselves when it comes to creating environments that feel believably lived-in, and […]
