“Halt and Catch Fire” has a big, romantic heart at its center, and that combination of tenderness and technological exultation means that it’s one of a kind. – Maureen Ryan, Variety
Electronic music pioneer Paul Haslinger couldn’t be more perfect for his role as series composer of the hit AMC series, “Halt And Catch Fire.” In its third season, the drama starring Lee Pace (TV’s “Pushing Daisies”, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Mackenzie Davis (“Black Mirror: San Junipero”), Kerry Bishe (Argo) and Toby Huss (Cowboys & Aliens) is the ensemble cast that really makes the series watchable, while Paul’s score keeps viewers in the mood and the moments. Thrown into the mix are ’80s fashion, vintage computer gear and all the fine details that really captures the fictionalized dawn of personal computing and the Internet.
