Why Halt & Catch Fire is so damn good

March 19, 2018

Halt & Catch Fire is one of those fantastic shows that gets better and better with every season. A critically acclaimed masterpiece, you owe it to yourself to watch the thrilling drama set against the backdrop of the tech industry in the 1980s and 1990s.

And as if multidimensional characters and brilliant writing weren’t enough, the series also knocks it out of the park when it comes to the soundtrack.

The fourth and final season, available now on digital, features quintessential ‘90s tracks from the likes of Hole, Pavement, PJ Harvey and A Tribe Called Quest, not to mention guilty pleasures from Peter Gabriel and Pat Benatar, and the timeless Dire Straits.

For real, pause your current binge and jump on the bandwagon – and in the meantime, check out this Spotify playlist of season four tracks.
