Posted by Carolyn Koo on September 28, 2016

This week, the show’s latest episode wins rave reviews, while HitFix is hoping for a Season 4. Plus, CarterMatt checks out a preview of next week. Read on for more:

• In its review of “The Threshold,” Vulture applauds, “Wow, this is a great episode of television. It’s tightly wound, it’s dramatic, it’s full of unexpected pieces, and everything feels totally earned.”

• The Observer calls the latest episode “so good, so intelligently written, so beautifully filmed, so thoughtfully scored, so movingly acted, so cathartically plotted, that it stops me dead in my tracks.”

HitFix proclaims that “things are in a fascinating place as we head into the home stretch of the season (and not, I hope, the series).”

• Looking ahead, CarterMatt wonders, “Will Joe get arrested?”

• San Francisco’s KQED spotlights how Tangerine Dream’s Paul Haslinger released an “’80s-inspired TV score” for Halt and Catch Fire.”

CGMagazine notes that the stories of the greatest corporate rivalries of the ’80s and ’90s “are starting to move from books to screen,” citing Halt and Catch Fire as an example.
