Kerry Bishé Talks Donna's Arc With VF; EW's Q&A With Halt's Creators
This week, Kerry Bishé speaks with Vanity Fair about Donna's Season 4 arc, while Entertainment Weekly has an interview with Christopher Rogers and Christopher Cantwell. Plus, The Hollywood Reporter applauds Halt and Catch Fire. Read on for more:
• Kerry Bishé, speaking with Vanity Fair, explains, "That’s what we explore in Season 4. Donna, she looks like she has it all, and in what ways is that true and in what ways is it not?"
• Christopher Rogers explains to Entertainment Weekly that the four main characters "can feel isolated and alienated from a lot of other people, and even lonely, I think, there’s something about the others that just feels undeniable where those feelings can abate and they feel connected again."
• The Hollywood Reporter describes Halt and Catch Fire as "a show that has been good and very good and based on the start of the fourth season, I'm expecting to look back on it overall as something great."
• Previewing the Season 4 opener, Entertainment Weekly declares that Halt and Catch Fire has "become a luminous drama," with each character becoming "incredibly compelling and unique."
• Christopher Rogers tells A.V. Club that uncertainty about the show's renewal status "reinforced a hold-nothing-back mindset in the storytelling that got us to our best work quickly. When you hold story back or try to draw it out, the audience can tell. Not knowing if there’d be a metaphorical 'tomorrow' really saved us from that mistake."
• TheWrap interviews Christopher Cantwell, who asks, "Is the technology we create bringing us together or driving us further apart? We examine that in our five characters’ relationships with each other."
• Speaking about Joe and Cameron, Christopher Cantwell explains to TVLine, "This season, as everyone reflects on their own growth and maturity, we thought it was interesting for the two of them to reconnect in yet a new way — a way we haven’t seen before."
• Also speaking with TVLine, Christopher Rogers adds, "In Episode 2, we begin what I’d like to think is a nice round of ’90s references, but you know, just like with the ’80s stuff, we don’t want to treat it like a punchline."
• Uproxx proclaims that Halt has become "a thing of real beauty."
• Vox says the show, which is "one of TV’s best series about how we use electronic means both to draw others closer and to push them further away," has "made me feel nostalgia most intensely for a time when the internet still seemed like it had the potential to completely remake a species and a planet, instead of squeezing us dry."
• Talking with Collider, Scoot McNairy says Season 4 is about "a sense of search. You know, with the metaphor of the search engine, of people who can not stop searching regardless of them getting all of their dreams and their goals and accomplishing them, they continue to search for more and want more, which is the dynamic of humanity."
• Decider explains why Halt and Catch Fire "remains the most underrated great drama on TV."
• Ruminating on Donna's role in the final season, Mic observes, "What’s helped make Halt and Catch Fire such an engrossing series is the depth and humanity that’s granted to the characters."
• The Ringer describes Halt and Catch Fire as "one of the best shows on television, full stop" and calls it an example of "what happens when TV’s potential for long-term, character-driven storytelling is taken full advantage of."
