Vox Praises One of Year’s Best Episodes; Vulture Lauds Halt‘s AIDS Storyline

This week, Christopher Rogers talks hacking at a panel, while Vulture lauds the show’s AIDS storyline. Plus, Vox deems last week’s episode one of the year’s best. Read on for more:

Vox calls “Yerba Buena,” last week’s episode, “not just the show’s best episode so far but one of the best TV episodes of the year — and notable for just how episodic it is, too.” Watch the full episode now.

• According to Variety, Christopher C. Rogers said at a panel on hacking and cyber security, “There are characters on our show that are hackers by broad definition and we like to have them approach personal problems from that place.”

Vulture proclaims that “it’s heartening, and really intriguing, to see Halt and Catch Fire even brush past the AIDS epidemic in its story about Silicon Valley.”

• Bos and Cameron provide one of TVLine‘s quotes of the week in this exchange: “Hey, when do babies start talking?” “Um, three or four months?” “His first word is gonna be ‘barbecue’ if I got anything to say about it.”

• Bos provides another TVLine quote of the week as he bonds with his grandson: “Look at this! We’ve got the same hair.”

• Looking ahead, CarterMatt notes, “There are only four episodes left, and we’re entering them with the same philosophy we’ve had with this show for some time: We’re not expecting more on the other side. If we get a renewal, it’ll be a cause for celebration.”

The Huffington Post recommends Halt and Catch Fire: “What might sound a little hokey ― a show about Texas’ Silicon Prairie and the rise of personal computers in the 1980s ― ends up being deeply emotional and perfectly nerdy.”

• For recaps and reviews of Season 3, Episode 6, “And She Was,” check out A.V. Club, CarterMatt, Fortune, HitFix, TV Fanatic and Vulture. Watch Episode 6 now on amc.com, AMC mobile apps, Apple TV and Roku.
