Critic Reviews for Halt and Catch Fire Season 4

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (14)

Its fourth season, like the ones before it, was a pleasure to watch, wise and gentle about the importance and difficulty of finding the right work and the right people with whom to make a life.

Halt and Catch Fire succeeds by making its tech narrative not a dry history lesson, but rather a battle of wills between four very flawed, compelling characters.

Oct 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Entering the final season, the AMC drama is running with the precision of swiss quartz.

The humanity of its final season is stunning.

May 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Beautiful. That's the only way to describe the two-hour finale of Halt and Catch Fire. Well, also satisfying. That's another word for it!

Dec 29, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…

With so many self-consciously explosive series vying for your attention, Halt and Catch Fire played a different game. It kept itself contained, forcing the audience to match its subdued, mesmerizing rhythm.

There is gold in this series, one of the best of recent times and many people will not even know that it exists. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Halt and Catch Fires is one of the best shows of all time.

Dec 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Hell, this show is a testament to that kind of determination, an unlikely underdog that kept barking to keep the lights on, and wound up succeeding. No matter how this whole thing ends, it's already won.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

This drama has certainly grown a lot-but now, with the pieces all in place, it seems fair to say that it was also brilliant from the start.

Dec 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Season 4 improved upon all the previous seasons. It was truly a wonderful swan song for the show.

Dec 14, 2017 | Full Review…

It is an achingly beautiful portrayal of four people striving to make something that matters, all the while screwing up relationships and finding a way back to each other.

Audience Reviews for Halt and Catch Fire: Season 4

  • Aug 19, 2020
    So slow and predictable, I finally gave up around episode 3 and just read the reviews to finish out the series.
  • Jul 11, 2020
    I lived through and worked in the hardware/software industry through the span covered In this show. I have no idea how they captured so many characterizations and nuances of the business, but I can tell you that they nailed it. I was moved to tears many times this final season, but was particular moved by the final scene of Joe in his office when they pan his bookshelf showIng Tracy Kidder's book "The Soul of A New Machine". It is a seminal book about the post-mainframe computer era. I read it in 1981 and decided then and there that I had to get into that business and I spent the rest of my career doing so. Like Joe, I pursued bleeding edge tech through its many iterations for all the promise and excitement it held. For all it's challenges I never regretted a moment of it. This show is a real masterpiece rarely achieved. It touched me deeply and I thank all involved in it for it. Bravo.

    So sad it ended but probably for the best. Great show. Definitely recommend.
  • Aug 13, 2019
    This series wrung out my heart and left a puddle of silicon in its place. A cerebral and intense foray into the dawn of the internet age and the bold and brilliant people who helped lead the way. In my top ten all-time shows along with Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Sons of Anarchy.

    Amazing - didn't want it to end
  • Jun 29, 2018
    Blew me away, by far some of the best television ever created!
  • Jun 21, 2018
    Started with great potential... ended as a poor soap. More than just the writers ran out of steam.
  • Jun 19, 2018
    This is a really enjoyable show
  • Jun 16, 2018
    Will miss thIS great show. such interesting, complex, and well developed characters - so memorable.
  • May 31, 2018
    Season 4 seems to be headed into soap. but what's worse? who decided on the faux-profound artsy-fartsy green and yellow tinting? yuck! and the over-saturated back-lighting? yuck. i'll take old-fashioned technicolor--or any real color--any time.
