Before trotting it back out for its second turn around the track, producers have made some welcome adjustments to the show's pacing, structure, and characterization.

Thankfully, this new Halt is better, exponentially so. Its inversion of decades of prestige-drama gender convention seems painfully obvious, and yet I'm not sure if any other show has actually attempted it.

AMC's bafflingly underrated drama is one of the best programs ever at capturing the human fallibilities that go into into carving your own path in business and life, including blind competitiveness, crippling insecurity and overwhelming doubt.

A very fine, energetic season of Halt and Catch Fire, one that's worth watching even if you never quite made it to the end of season one.
