This week, USA Today commends Mackenzie Davis’ performance, while Entertainment Weekly applauds the latest episode. Plus, Vox gives kudos to the show for knowing how to deal with Gordon’s death. Read on for more:
• USA Today calls Mackenzie Davis “plain fun to watch” in Halt and Catch Fire.
• Vox commends the show for realizing, in killing Gordon, “that what’s important isn’t the death itself but everything that unspools afterward.”
• The Hollywood Reporter calls “Goodwill” one of “the greatest ‘sad’ episodes of television ever made, stripped of anything extraneous and yet relying wholly on the character interactions of the 37 previous episodes.”
• Forbes asserts, “If you’re not a fan of AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire, you’re missing one of the best pop culture takes on the tech world ever produced.”
• Recommending Halt and Catch Fire, The Philadelphia Inquirer says, “If you watch only one drama about the heady early days of personal computing and the World Wide Web, make it this one from AMC.”
• Decider declares, “If Halt and Catch Fire, which began so rockily with a Joe/Gordon/Cameron partnership can end — even bittersweetly — on a Donna/Cameron/Joe partnership, it would put a button on one of the best character evolutions on TV in a while.”
• Director Denis Villeneuve tells Backstage he wanted Mackenzie Davis in Blade Runner 2049 partly because of her “naturalism, her precision, and her assurance” as Cameron.
